In literature class, the teacher hands out copies of The Odyssey and talks about how the ancient myths feature heroes on epic quests, who encounter many strange monsters, and ultimately die and are reborn, gaining wisdom in the process. As Ian flips through his copy, he notices that the previous owner left notes and scribbles, and asks for a new copy. The teacher, Literature, refuses, saying that it's already been registered in Ian's name. He tells them they have to weeks to read the book before the test, and comments that heroes often refuse to accept their quest because of immaturity or fear...

Episode Quotes
CJ: Sir, you mentioned monstrous creatures. Are there, by any chance, any vampires in this book? Brooding vampires, who know they shouldn't fall in love with a mortal female but do anyways, even though they know it's doomed from the beginning, because that's what love is really all about?
Dr. Literature: No.
Suki: Werewolves? Any dark, brooding werewolves?

Ian: Gabe. Gabe! You all right?
Gabe: Yeah. My glasses broke my fall.

CJ: I'd give you a hug goodbye, but you're in a grave with a headless Cyclops skeleton.

Cultural References
Gabe: I said "Scooby."

Scooby is Scooby Doo, the animated Great Dane and star of the various Scooby Doo cartoon series and live-action movies.
