Episode Quotes
Seth: Ah. Father. I'm glad to see you finally found your calling.
Caleb: Exactly what I said.
Sandy: Ah, nothing like a good crack about a plumber.

Summer: Trapped in a department store. Which is like my ultimate fantasy.
Ryan: Okay, and what if we get caught?
Summer: We'll be stealth.

Seth: How is it that Ryan and Marissa are now the functioning couple?
Summer: Oh my god, we can not be more annoying than Ryan and Marissa. They're monsters.
Seth: I like monsters.

Julie: Alex, and I'm not saying this to be mean. Because you actually seem like a nice enough girl, and ... I like your pants. But you're this week's yard guy.

Ryan: So what do we do now?
Summer: I have an idea. (puts on a hockey mask)
Ryan: You're going to kill us all with a chainsaw?

Seth: And besides, now with Lindsay out of the picture, maybe Ryan and Marissa will get back together.
Summer: Are you crazy? They're like the worst couple ever. And besides Marissa's happy now.
Seth: Okay, and by happy you mean gay.

Seth: This thing with Lindsay is just really kicking Ryan's ass.
Summer: Which is why it's a good thing we're like the Marines.
Seth: How are we like the Marines?
Summer: We leave no man behind. Look, Lindsay may have turned her back on Ryan, but we won't. No. You have got to cheer him up. Semper Fi.
Seth: Oh, Semper Fi. That's so cute.



Episode Goofs
Near the middle of the episode, Julie is carrying a brown bag in her left hand. When the shot returns to Julie, she has the bag in her right hand, then it switches back to the left in the next shot.



Cultural References
Seth: Saving Private Ryan.

Saving Private Ryan is a 1998 Speilberg movie about WWII soldiers trying to bring Private Ryan home.



Episode References
At the diner, Marissa asks Ryan "Who are you?". Ryan responds by saying "Whoever you want me to be" with a french fry hanging out of his mouth. This is the same as a scene in the "Pilot" episode when Ryan meets Marissa for the first time, but instead of a french fry, he had cigarette in his mouth.
