Episode Quotes
(Karen stops every few feet to spray perfume)
Al: Karen, what are you doing?
Karen: I'm setting a trap for Kyle McCormick.
Al: Oh he's hot.
Karen: I've been spraying perfume in strategic places. His locker, his desk in homeroom, pretty soon his animal instincts will take over and he will track me down and claim me for his own.
Al: Well that's very romantic...if you're a moose.

Jean-Luc: JT, JT, guess what is just about to burst out of me.
JT: Upstairs, first door on the left, jiggle the handle.

JT: (to Karen and her friend) Well I guess I'll leave you two old hags alone so you can compare liver sports and talk about the good ole days.

Jean-Luc: Frank, you look super excellent fantastic.
Frank: I know these monkey suits are supposed to be suave but I don't feel right in it.
Jean-Luc: Come on Frank, when Carol sees you dressed like this she will melt. Just like Tammy Faye Baker's on a hot day.
