Trivia and notes

Carmen (to George & Angie): You guys are the best parents in the whole world!
George: No.
Carmen: No, what? George: You want something and the answer is no, you're just too young.
Carmen: You don't even know what it is......
George: What is it?
Carmen: I wanna date.....
George: No, you're just too young. Angie, I got it right!
George: (To Carmen) You want to see what happens when you start dating boys too early? (he points at Benny) THAT!
Benny: Ya know what?, I wasn't so much dating boys at 15 as....
George: MOM!
Benny:... Having sex with them. What did you think I was gonna say?
Angie: (about Carmen & Jason) They've been dating for three weeks and they never go out. Don't you think that's weird?
George: Maybe, but here I can keep an eye on 'em. The only groping is when Ernie drops a chip down his shirt.
Jason: I'm here to see Carmen.
George: Are you sure you can be here? The super popular kids might see you! You could lose your reputation! And have to eat lunch with.. (dramatically) the debate team!
Jason: I'm captain of the debate team.
Angie: How did this happen? Our daughter has no self-esteem.
Benny: I say steer into the skid, dye her hair blonde and send her to stripper school.
