"Greek: Pilot (#1.1)" (2007)
Rusty Cartwright: Is it necessary to call him 'pledge'?
Cappie: No, I just can't remember his name.

Rusty Cartwright: Where's your name tag?
Engineering Student: I don't feel comfortable with strangers having access to personal information without my explicit consent.
Rusty Cartwright: [laughs nervously]
Engineering Student: I think we're done here.

Dale: [at the engineering party] Check out the hotties! And free Red Bull! I mean, we get a whole other week of this before classes even start. College rocks.
Rusty Cartwright: You know, to be honest, I kinda expected...more...Our first college party.
Dale: Like a fraternity party or something? I mean who would choose to hang out with a bunch of drunkards whose goal in life is to fornicate on as many vapid sorority girls as possible.

Rusty Cartwright: I want to have fun!
Casey Cartwright: You don't know how to have fun!

Rusty Cartwright: But she's my sister.
Evan: We could be your brothers.

Rusty Cartwright: [talking about Casey] How do you know her?
Cappie: Uh, in the biblical sense.
Rusty Cartwright: Oh, from Church.
Cappie: Yea, you could say I've been in her church.

Cappie: Give us a second, Pledge.
Rusty Cartwright: Pledge? Is that a part of the whole hazing thing?
Cappie: No, I just can't remember his name.


"Greek: The Rusty Nail (#1.3)" (2007)
Rusty Cartwright: I've never been on a date before.
Calvin, Dale: You haven't?
Rusty Cartwright: What? Is that so weird?
[pause, then turns to Dale]
Rusty Cartwright: Wait, Dale. You've been on a *date*?
Dale: Hey, I'm a virgin. Not a leper.

Cappie: Spitter, what are you so afraid of?
Rusty Cartwright: Rejection. Humiliation. And clowns.
Cappie: Well, those are scary things, but let's try and maintain perspective.

Calvin: So you need a date for Friday. I don't see what the big deal is.
Rusty Cartwright: For the rest of the house it isn't, girls are all they talk about.
Calvin: Oh man I am with you. I am so sick of hearing guys talk about getting laid.
Dale: Calvin, I could not agree more. I mean, when is the Greek system gonna realize that sex before marriage is like slappin' God in the face?
Calvin: [frowns] Not exactly what I meant.

Cappie: It's simple. The secret to flirting, dating, and hooking up is all biology.
Rusty Cartwright: Don't you mean anatomy?
Cappie: Spitter, can't you see I'm in lecture mode? Where was I? AH! Biology. Okay, there's this guy named Chuck Darwin, now he proved that mankind has evolved over billions and trillions of years. Darwin showed that every aspect of human behavior has an evolutionary purpose. Right? Chatting up girls is in our genetic code, we're programmed to be able to do it. Why? So we can boink and make babies. It's survival of the flirtiest.
Rusty Cartwright: So you're saying I'm becoming extinct?
Cappie: No, no. I'm saying evolution has made us good at this. You need to get outta your head and just trust your instincts. The ability to attract a female is hardwired into your DNA.
Rusty Cartwright: That actually makes scientific sense.
Cappie: Of course it does, I was a Bio major once! Now let's go make Chuckie D proud.

Rusty Cartwright: I need a favor.
Casey Cartwright: It's happy hour; you'd better need a kidney.

Rusty Cartwright: I know you guys think virginity is like this precious gift, but you know what, it's not! It's a big fat burden, it's one that's making me feel like this lonely, awkward loser and I'm tired of feeling that way and tonight I have a chance to change that. So I'm gonna give my gift away. I'm gonna give it to a girl named Lucy ... or Laura, or something that begins with an L.


"Greek: Hazed and Confused (#1.2)" (2007)
Cappie: Greetings. Four score and seven years ago our fore fathers who art in Heaven hallowed be their name brought unto this continent Kappa Tau Gamma. Ye though we walk through valley of the shadow of death we fear nothing and neither will you. As tonight you all become men. But not the way you may be thinking we do not have hookers, which isn't to say we didn't try. Regardless you all have been brought here before us to participate in a ceremonial rite of passage it derives from the secrets of our rituals know as Crypteia where a boy is sent out into the wild to live off the land fight for his life while protecting his village if he wasn't devoured by those gnarly looking wolfie things then he returned to the village a man.
Rusty Cartwright: Isn't that the beginning of 300?
Cappie: We did it first! You must stay out here all night you can not sleep also the Spartan boys had to wear their battle clothes for 24 hours.
Rusty Cartwright: They were out there for months
Cappie: Silence! Oh yeah you guys gotta do some light gardening cause the weeds are getting a little bad back here and to be one with the earth which is something else they did back then. Alright see you guys in the morning when you're men. Be well.

Rusty Cartwright: What's your major?
Ben Bennett: Undeclared, I guess. Yours?
Rusty Cartwright: Polymer Science.
Ben Bennett: Bummer.

Rusty Cartwright: I'm not homeless, I'm in a fraternity.

Casey Cartwright: Be realistic, Russ.
Rusty Cartwright: Be my sister, Case.

Cappie: Wow! You're in the Eagle Scouts...

Casey Cartwright: [in the stands] Please don't hit it to him.

Cappie: Can you see those huge guys out there with the sticks?
Rusty Cartwright: Yea.
Cappie: Good, cause I can't, which might be a sign of a concussion.

Cappie: Spitter? Is that you?
Rusty Cartwright: Yeah, hi! Do you think I can get a chance to play? I'm ready! I've been practicing!
Cappie: Can you see those huge guys out there with the sticks?
Rusty Cartwright: Yeah...
Cappie: Good, 'cause I can't. Which might be a sign of a concussion. Wait... There they are! Be right back!

The Beaver: Maybe we should call it Cap.
Cappie: I'm over here, dude. Maybe we should throw in the towel.
Rusty Cartwright: No you can't give up! Isn't this game bigger than all of us? Isn't this about kicking ass? Isn't this about good versus Evan?
Cappie: He's right! You may not be feeling well. Some of you are even still drunk! But I see before me a team of Kappa Tau's, playing in defiance of tyranny. You've come to fight as free men, and free men you are. Will you fight? Ay, fight and you might die. Run and you might live, atleast for a while.
The Beaver: It hurts real bad, Cap.
Cappie: Drunk people don't feel pain! And neither do Scotsmen. We may be puking, but the Omega Kai's are not used to running on puke like we are! And Rusty here... Look at him, just a nice kid from Cleveland...
Rusty Cartwright: Chicago...
Cappie: And I know that when he's dying in his bed many years from now, he be willing to trade all his days from this day, for one chance...
Rusty Cartwright: I'm actually fine...
Cappie: Just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies, that they may take our lives, but they will never be able to take our freedom! Yeah!!


"Greek: Multiple Choice (#1.7)" (2007)
Rusty Cartwright: The game's rigged. Old tests, pay tutors for cramming, drugs. College isn't about learning; it's a four year course on how to get buy and beat the system. It's supposed to be the last passion for education a place removed from society where you're inspired, not discouraged. A place where teachers teach and students learn.

Rusty Cartwright: Casey got lavaliered by Evan.
Casey Cartwright: Hey, that's supposed to be a secret.
Rusty Cartwright: Why'd you tell me?
Casey Cartwright: Good question.
Cappie: Congrats, Case.
Casey Cartwright: Thanks.
Cappie: Your kids will be very... Aryan.

Rusty Cartwright: So with almost everyone cheating is it really cheating if you cheat?

Rusty Cartwright: Dale you gotta be careful drinking all that caffeine.
Dale: No, my resting heart rate is...145, that's well within' tolerance
Rusty Cartwright: Yea, for a humming bird!


"Greek: Dearly Beloved (#2.16)" (2009)
Casey Cartwright: I always thought the hard part would be finding the right guy; but it turns out its not finding the guy that's hard, it staying on the same page with him. And right now, I feel like we're in different chapters.
Rusty Cartwright: Well it's better than me and Jordan because right now we're in different books. And someone else is reading her book. Or her books in someone else's library... maybe...
Casey Cartwright: Rusty!

Rusty Cartwright: You know if you think about it, nothing happened this morning. Sure, something almost did, but it didn't, and you cannot feel guilty over almost.

Jordan Reed: And I finally have my answer.
Rusty Cartwright: For what?
Jordan Reed: Whether or not it's worth risking eternal happiness in heaven for fleeting happiness on earth.

Cappie: That's a pretty bold move, what makes you think she's a lesbian?

Rusty Cartwright: I think I'm ready to use the L-word with Jen.
Cappie: That's a pretty bold move. What makes you think she's a lesbian, and is that a dealbreaker for you?!
Rusty Cartwright: Not that L-word. I wanna tell her I love her.
Cappie: Look, if you need to say "I love you", call your mom.

Rusty Cartwright: Actually it's a simple crank generator that turns friction into electricity.
Heath: Or magic!

Rusty Cartwright: Beaver, the bathroom is that way!
The Beaver: [Rusty points down the hall, away from Cappie's room] Man, why do they keep moving it?!

Cappie: Oh?
Rusty Cartwright: Then they got back together.
Cappie: Oh...
Rusty Cartwright: And I was there for the whole thing. Trying to be supportive... trying to be her friend... I just couldn't do it. I wasn't there to be her friend. I was waiting. I can't wait around, that'll take forever. It easier for her to be friends because she's with Andy. But for me, I just can't sit around hoping she'll pick me.

Rusty Cartwright: But I know that. You're one of the biggest screw-ups in the school.
Cappie: Well, thank you very much, my friend.
Cappie: But I also know that if I have a problem I can always come to you. I just wish you felt the same. Quit being my hero and start being my friend.

Ashleigh Howard: What happened? Are you OK?
Rusty Cartwright: Yeah. Evan's a jerk, but he stopped me from making a mistake.
Ashleigh Howard: What do you mean?
Rusty Cartwright: I looked into her eyes, like you said. I realized that I wanted a girl who spits her gum out accidentally, and wears a maxi-pad around her knee, and bakes really good maple bars just to make me feel cozy. A girl who that enough confidence to turn me down flat when I was dumb enough to overlook her.
Ashleigh Howard: That doesn't even sound like a real person.
Rusty Cartwright: It is. Katherine and I are a lot alike, that's true. But Dana gives me something more. She inspires me. She's proud of who she is. That's who I want to be. That's who I want to be with.
Ashleigh Howard: Oh, Rusty! Is that from Adventures in Babysitting? It's not from anything.
Rusty Cartwright: That's how I feel. But I already left Dana a message breaking our date. So it's too late.
Ashleigh Howard: Maybe not yet. - I have one more movie idea. Come on!

Cappie: See that's the thing, she's not just some other girl. At least not to me. I had the opportunity to be with her and my "Friend" talked me out of it.

Jordan Reed: I'm sorry
Rusty Cartwright: Well, I'm sorry too if this is how you get repaid for being a good boyfriend. You do stuff for someone because you love them, then they wake up one morning and then they say so long"
Jordan Reed: Rusty, you've always known what you wanted to do and that's why I love being with you because you made me feel like one day I'd figure out my thing too. And it's because of you that I'm finally doing what's right for me.
Rusty Cartwright: Well, excuse me if I'm not all smiley about it.
Jordan Reed: Neither am I, because the one thing I don't want is for us to end. I don't think we have to. I mean, plenty of people do the whole long distance thing.
