Episode Quotes
Brian: Look, I didn't do so good on this test. I just got one right. My name.

Alex: But, we're swamped. We totally need more help with... (looking at an empty restaurant) ...all of our phone orders.

Harper: How much coffee do I pore on the coffee cake?

Alex: Mom, don't add your own moves. This isn't the '80s, this isn't Footgrease music.
Theresa: It's Footloose or Grease... and those movies were great!

Episode Goofs
While Alex and Harper are working together to stop the ice cream flow in the "Gurtbarn" restaurant, Harper finds a huge plastic ice cream cone and she throws the fake top off. The top rolls off the set, but in the next shot, it has come back and is rolling in the background. It's very unlikely it would manage to roll off the set and in again on that short time period.

Cultural References
Theresa: It's Footloose or Grease...

"Footloose" is a highly popular 1984 musical film that is known worldwide for its songs and popularity. "Grease" is a 1978 film adaption of the superpopular 1972 musical. Both these movies have been a huge inspiration for both stage musicals and film musicals worldwide.

Episode References
This is the first time we hear the hat song and dance that Alex and Harper share, which has occassionally gone through the show and is sort of the "friendship bond" between them.
