Episode Quotes
Andy: Do you know what the best thing about my life is right now?
Sam: (pointing to himself) This guy?
Andy: No. My life is a mess and for the first time I'm not running around trying to fix it. Remember how you said neat and tidy is overrated? Yeah, well I'm putting my trust in that.
Sam: Neat and tidy is who you are, you know? Don't drive your trust-mobile off a cliff.

Andy: Look over there. Definitely woo-girls.
Sam: Oh, yeah? You're telling me you're not a woo-girl, McNally?
Andy: Yeah, maybe. After a bottle of tequila.
Sam: A whole bottle of tequila and I'm a woo-girl.

Andy: Oliver, you're a good dad.
Oliver: Yeah, right.

Chris: Why did you? Sign up, I mean.
Nick: I liked the commercials. Nah, I always liked helping people. Was looking for somewhere to belong, I guess.

Sam: Andy, you said you liked messy. Well this is me, messy, okay? I made a mistake. I went about it the wrong way. I'd like to give you a ride home.
Andy: Well, I guess that beats taking the trust-mobile.

Episode Goofs

The pattern on icing on Andy's nose changes between shots when she is talking to her mother about the party.


When Andy arrives at her house warming party Dov is holding two chocolate covered strawberry's and hands her one on a stick. The camera angle changes and suddenly the strawberry Dov is still holding has slid down the entire stick almost to the bottom.

Cultural References
Batman: Sam tells Andy not to drive her "trustmobile" off a cliff.

This is a play on words of the phrase "batmobile," which is the car that 'Batman' drives.
