Goofs

Jeff suggests each person rank their preference for lab partner from 1 to 8. Since there are eight people in total each person has seven possible partners. Rankings would therefore be from 1 to 7. See more »

Quotes

Jeff Winger: Listen, when you really hate someone the way you hate Annie Kim, or... when you feel the way I feel about you, the easy loophole through the creepiness and danger is to treat them like a child. "Chip off the old block", "You're the best, kiddo". It's a crutch. It's a way for me to tell you how important you are... from a distance.
