Episode Quotes
Elliot: Jack, you think we can go up to our room? I want to be early for our campus tour.
Jack: Yeah, you're gonna love our room. I requested a view of the Hollywood Hills, so if it rains we can watch all the homes slide down the hill.

Will:Hey, look at that couple. That one guy is so much cuter than the other guy. Miss-Match!
James: Oh look, they're pointing at us too,
Will: Stop looking at them!

Jack: Maybe he's right? I'm not his father.
Karen: Oh Jackie, listen. Every parent goes through this. When I lost Mason in Egypt for four weeks, I'll be honest, I doubted myself. I didn't think that there was any way that he would every again think that I was a good mother. But when he rang our doorbell that day covered in stickers, all was forgiven.

Grace: I'm Grace, by the way.
James: Oh, Will told me you were funny.
Grace: Oh, sweet.
James: That's why I didn't think it was you.



Episode Goofs
Jack says he asked for a room with a view of the Hollywood Hills, yet his room has a view that doesn't even show the hills. It looks more like a section of Downtown L.A.



Cultural References
Jack's ring tone is "Ring My Bell", as made famous in the 70's by Anita Ward.

Grace: Mama's gonna doll out some justice up in here!

A quick reference to the film "Big Mama's House 2."

Grace: Tera Reid, dropped her martini in the pool... and now she's drinking the water.

A quick and funny reference to the drinking problems of actress Tera Reid.
