(after telling Summer about wanting to dye Pancakes pink)
Holly's Friend: Isn't that so adorable you just want to kill yourself?

Holly: I told Brent that for Christmas all I want is an African baby.

Henri-Michel: (about his book) People say it is pornographic, but it is really just deeply, deeply sexual.

Ryan: Met your ex-husband last night. He was at the bookstore, doing a reading.
Taylor: Wait, you met Henri-Michele? How did you know it was him?
Ryan: Dirty hair, scarf, smells like brie?
Taylor: That's Henri-Michele.

Taylor: I just can't believe this, I mean did you read every page? Even --
Ryan: Page 47, yeah.
Taylor: Okay, Ryan even if I was that limber, you know I would never do that in the Chunnel.

Dr. Roberts: I've gotta go. There's a man who's been impaled by what appears to be a unicorn.
Seth: (whispering) Unicorns.
Dr. Roberts: But our conversation is going to continue. We'll talk about this on my rounds tomorrow. (he leaves)
Seth: So does this mean I have your blessing? (door closes) They do exist.

Episode Goofs
According to the hospital braclets in Taylor's scrapbook, Ryan was born on September 5, 1986. However, in "The Journey" Ryan celebrates his 18th birthday during the spring right before graduation. The bracelets also show that Taylor's birthday is July 9, 1985, but in "The Shake Up", Taylor's birthday falls shortly after Groundhog Day.

Cultural References
Seth: So, are you liking it up here?
Dr. Roberts: Seriously?
Seth: Seriously.

In the ABC drama Grey's Anatomy (which aired opposite season 4 of The O.C.) the word "seriously" is frequently used on the show and has become one of the series' catch phrases. Also, the hospital that Dr. Roberts is working at is Seattle Grace, the same as "Grey's Anatomy".
