- During Matthew and Olivia's debate, they quote each other from earlier in the episode, but do it inaccurately. Where Olivia said, “This year, the soccer team made more catches than the football team,” Matthew quotes, “The soccer team made more catches than the football team, which is why they both deserve their losing record.” When asked if she said that, Olivia says yes. However, she did not say the second half of the quote, which Matthew emphasized.
Olivia Parker: So what do the band members want?
Morrie Rydell: Well, their number one concern is getting new uniforms.
Olivia Parker: You mean those hats with the giant feather dusters in them?
Morrie Rydell: I wouldn't refer to them as that, but yes.
Olivia Parker: Oh. Okay, well, anything else?
Morrie Rydell: They want more respect.
Olivia Parker: Well, then, maybe they should rethink the giant feather dusters.
