Episode Quotes
Seth: Man, you home-schoolig kids are pathetic.

Julie: And we will get back on our feet, Marissa. And we'll be wearing expensive footwear when we do.

Summer: You know I always thought that social chair was a ceremonial position. Like Rose Bowl Queen or President.

Seth: Well, that is a pickle.
Ryan: That's it? No advice?
Seth: What advice? Call her, apologize. It's not rocket science. Man. You home school kids are pathetic.

Taylor: Hi everybody! Everyone, hi. I'm Taylor Townsend, your social chair. And I would like to thank you all for coming.
Seth: Relax. She's not taking credit for it.
Taylor: Thank you. So this dance has been my baby now for quite awhile.
Seth: Okay, she's taking credit for it.
Summer: I am going to kill her.

Marissa: Mom, Caleb was broke. It makes sense that we'd have to sell everything. You know, you don't have to protect me.
Julie: Well then do you think it would be alright with Summer if you stayed until we got back on our feet? And we will get back on our feet and we'll be wearing very expensive shoes when we do.

Taylor: Summer!
Summer: No. Just so you know, you and your friend the dean may have won this round, but the war is not over.
Taylor: Well unless you have an exit strategy, don't even get out of the boat. I am a human quagmire. (Taylor storms off)
Summer: (to a passing student) What's a quagmire? Hello! Anyone? Quagmire?

Cultural References
