Episode Quotes
Larry: Jackie loves it when I tell her a good story, don't you muffin top?
Jackie: I love it when you do anything, muffin bottom.

Jackie: I just want him (Reggie) to love me, much much more than he loves anyone else. Is that too much to ask?
Larry: Maybe too much to even think.

Larry: (to Jackie) As a Zabvronian, Reggie has his own pre-destined soul mate back on Zabvron, and it certainly isn't that hormonal angel of darkness (Amber) next door.

Marty: The lasers are on the clapper?
visual: Jackie nods yes.
Abby: Why didn't you clap when you were on this side?
Larry: Because she's a show off!

Larry: We should have just forbid this union, instead of allowing Reggie to roam next door for a little strange.
Reggie: Strange is right! (to Amber) Unless that's a word I just can't use either.

Amber: Impressive speech, but, uh, what about the girl outside, you know the one you're magnetically attracted to?
Reggie: Just tall tales from my father.

Cultural References
Jackie: And we thought that Smash was going to last forever.
Larry: Not even a pity move to Fridays.

Smash was an American musical television drama that was adored by critics but was canceled in 2013 after only two seasons.

Larry: Come on, Catherine Zeta, let's do this!

Larry refers to Catherine Zeta Jones, who performed a similar maneuver through visible laser beams wearing a skin tight catsuit in the 1999 movie, Entrapment.
