Episode Quotes

Nick Andopolis: Wow, that dinner smells good. Let me guess... meat?
Lindsay Weir: Dad, give me one good reason why there can't be a woman president.
Harold Weir: It's called three irrational days per month. Now, I would have no issue with the other twenty seven, but we're talking about the atomic bomb here.
Harold Weir: By the way, that drummer you're listening to...
Nick Andopolis: Yeah?
Harold Weir: He's terrible!
Nick Andopolis: What? That's Neal Peart, he's the greatest drummer alive!

  • Goof (anachronisms): Fruit Roll-Ups are mentioned despite coming out in 1983 while set in 1981 according to the date of death of the dog Goliath.


  • Harold Weir tells Nick that Neil Peart couldn't drum his way out of a paper bag, and plays him some Buddy Rich to show him real drumming. In real life, Neil Peart has played on several Buddy Rich tribute albums and has used Buddy as an influence for reinventing his drumming style.
  • When Sam is going through his closet trying to find an outfit for the party, one of the outfits he rejects is the blue disco suit he wore in Looks & Books.
