Episode Quotes
Phil: Now why is it that engineers always act superior to DJs?
Dodee: Because we're smarter, Phil.

Big Jim: Well, sorry I didn't get to you sooner, Rose. I had to make sure the nursing home and the clinic are taken care of.
Rose: Are you kidding me? If you're not careful, people are going to start calling you Santa Claus. Oh, god bless you, Jim Rennie. How much do I owe you?
Big Jim: Ho ho ho.

Julia: So what makes you think these guys are under orders not to talk to us?
Barbie: Because they're not talking to us.

Ben: Where'd that guy come from?
Joe: Definitely not from around here.
Ben: How do you know?
Joe: 'Cause he's cool.

Ben: What if we're trapped in here forever? I'll never get to make out with Mila Kunis.
Joe: I don't think this thing is the only thing keeping that from happening.
Ben: Just think about it. We could have met every girl we're ever going to meet.
Joe: That is so depressing.

Episode Goofs
As Julia talks to Barbie near the dome perimeter, a truck is visible on the let and its front left rear overlaps the dome perimeter on the ground.
