Did You Know?


Dana compares Jeremy to Don Quixote then says that she's sure his love for Natalie has been "pure and chaste from afar". This is a line from "The Impossible Dream", a song from the musical "Man of La Mancha" which is based on the novel "Don Quixote". See more »


Jeremy, who has a degree in applied mathematics and is a self-professed math genius, figures out Natalie's e-mail password by claiming that there are only about 14,000 words made up of six letters. The actual possible permutations, using both upper and lower case letters, would be almost 20 million. See more »


Dan Rydell: Okay, I don't think there's any way I could be colder.
Kim: What if you were wet?
Dan Rydell: I'd be very cold. But as cold as I'd be under that circumstance, I still don't think there'd be any discernable difference between how cold I'd be then and how cold I am now. That's how cold I am.
Casey McCall: Soooo, you're cold?
Dan Rydell: I'm pretty cold.
Dana Whitaker: We're taking care of it.
Dan Rydell: And if it's possible, I'd like to look just a little bit more like Elmer Fudd.
