When Lindsey, Nick and Daniel go to get fake id's, Tobey calls Daniel, who's wearing a black stocking cap, 'McMurphy', as a reference to Jack Nicholson's character in One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. It's the same style of cap that Nicholson wore in the film. See more »
Howie Gelfand remarks to Nick "Sorry, Bill Laimbeer" (referring to his height). Laimbeer didn't become a Detroit Piston until February 16th, 1982. At the time that this episode would have taken place, (1980), Laimbeer probably would have had little relevance to Detroit-area youths. See more »
People like Maureen don't come along every day (never). Pretty, down- to-earth and willing to hang with the geeks. Suddenly, Sam, Neil and Bill have an air of legitimacy in the halls of McKinley, and just as sudden is the profound need to hold onto something precious before the cool kids get ahold of her.
It's that sincerity that lends 'Carded and Discarded' its lasting sweetness, but this also has plenty of understated humor. Not to mention the excellent guest cast and customarily superb soundtrack. This is up there with the best of 'em.
