Joan of Arcadia: Spring Cleaning

In the wake of Joan's difficult breakup with Adam, God tells her to do some therapeutic cleaning, which ends up putting her in the middle of a scandal involving her guidance counselor. As part of Joan's clean sweep, she returns everything Adam ever gave her, which only adds to the awkwardness between them. Meanwhile, when Joan returns some items to Mr. Tuchman that he loaned her, a jealous student with feelings for Tuchman vindictively tells the school authorities that Tuchman initiated intimate relationships with both her and Joan. In the meantime, Kevin considers getting a place of his own.

Episode Quotes
Luke: (to Friedman, about his leather jacket) I dunno man, call me crazy, but I think I could do boots next.

Kevin: I'm wearing pink socks.
Helen: Well, pink is the new black.

Grace: Look. I panicked. It was like you were saying the whole Adam/Joan thing...they're so much alike and they didn't make it, and...I overthought it.
Luke: You were worried.
Grace: Leave it.
Luke: About losing me.

Luke: Kevin's cavorting with a nun.
Kevin: Ex-nun.
Will: I hate the dating years.

Kevin: You are a very obnoxious ex-nun.
Lilly: I know.

Will: Help me, I'm a man.

Luke: Dude, I know that Superman eventually learned to control his powers, but the first few times he took a leak, he must have blown apart the porcelain.

Father Mallory: Maybe you should discuss this with someone else.
Helen: I tried discussing this with Will, but...he's a man. You're a man too, but a different type of man.

Kevin: Point of adulthood, people don't actually say "nookie palace."

Joan: According to unified field theory, aren't we all in the same mess.
Ms. Lischak: Yes...but it's just a theory. Dismissed, grasshopper.

Father Mallory: Your candor is appreciated.
Will: I have plenty more where that came from...
Helen: Will!
Will: But I'll keep it to myself.

Kevin: Can I ask you a question?
Helen: What?
Kevin: What do women want?
Helen: Shoes.
