- Derek: Who are you?
- Casey: I'm the step-sister you've always wanted.
- Derek: Really, 'cause you look like the ugly step-sister from Snow White.
- Casey: That's Cinderella, you freak. Now could you turn down the music?
- Derek: Oh, well why didn't you say so? (turns off the music) Now, I never had any noise complaints when Edwin had that room before he was forced upstairs to make room for you guys.

- Casey: (hugging Vicky) Don't ask. Just hug.

- Lizzie: And neither of you knew Derek's been stealing my Tooth Fairy money.
- Nora: Yes, but technically that wasn't part of the quiz.

Date With Derek [2.1]
- George: Good, 'cause this house can't handle another boy-crazed girl.
- Nora: And what about the girl crazed boys in this house?
- George: Yeah, but boys don't hog the phone like girls do, 'cause boys don't like to talk so much. Not that talking is a bad thing. I'm drowning here, Ed.

Battle of the Bands [2.5]
(Derek's band plays)

- (Family is stunned over his singing, execpt Edwin)
- Edwin: (applauds) Encore! Encore! Encore! That was totally awesome!
Lies My Brother Told Me [2.6]
- Casey: Alright, Derek. You got me into this mess, you get me out.
- Edwin: Casey, speaking from experience, Derek doesn't respond to demands. He prefers the big yes-man, boot-licking approach.
- Casey: [exasperated] Derek, you are the guru of the sacred art of deceit. You and only you can help me in my hour of need. Please, oh Great Liar, take pity on my poor truthful soul.
- Derek: Whenever somebody asks me if I've seen a movie, I always lie and say yes. That way I won't have to hear them drone on about how good it is to the point where it makes me wish I've seen it or how awful it is to the point where it makes me wish I've never heard of it.

- Scott: She's a blonde.

- Jason: (fixated on Casey) Wait a sec, who is that goddess?
- Edwin: Stepsister Casey. She's practicing for some dance competition. C'mon.
- Jason: (to Edwin) But--but it's rude to leave in the middle of a song.
- (Casey's song ends as Casey finishes her routine)
- (Casey's episode overview)
- Casey: (she breaks the fourth wall) I love the rush of performing for a live audience. But beforehand? I'm freaked! It's part of being a sensitive, artistic overachiever. As opposed to insensitive, crude underachievers---like Derek.
- (Lizzie is crying on her bed as Nora walks in to comfort her.)
Nora: (Sympathetically) Hey Lizard.
Lizzie: (Defensively) Mom look, I'm sorry I wouldn't do the dishes earlier but I had my reasons.
Nora: I know exactly how you're feeling.
Lizzie: You do?
Nora: Yeah. You said it yourself. You're growing up. Adolescence is a time for changes. Emotional, physical, hormonal.
Nora: Yeah. Hormones are kinda like eh-, well they're kinda like emotional pimples. You know they, they mess with your head. And that's exactly why you wouldn't do the dishes.
Lizzie: Mom my hormones are not the reason why I wouldn't do the dishes!
Nora (Tone changes from sympathetic to smug as she realizes how much fun she is having making Lizzie feel uncomfortable with the word puberty): Really, cause uh getting mad at me's just another symptom of puberty and your hormones are (Waves her hands in the air to represent "crazy").
Lizzie: Mom please stop saying that word!
Nora (Teasingly): What word, hormones or puberty?
Lizzie: (Covering her ears) Mom stop!
Nora: (Looks at Lizzie as if she is finished and is ready to apologize for using the word puberty).
Lizzie: (Carefully takes her hands off her ears and lets her guard down signifying that she trusts Nora not to say the word puberty anymore).
Nora: (Bluntly Tauntingly) PUBERTY!!
Lizzie: (Covers her ears again).

Mice and Men [2.11]

- Casey: Uh, I guess that'd be me. But I'm not a super keener.
- Kendra: Ok, then just a regular keener?
- Casey: Hey, I like to have fun, too! And homework can be fun!
- Kendra: (to Casey) Yeah, you're the one.
Dinner Guest [2.12]
- Lizzie: (Grating cheese) Oww! I think I grated some of my skin into the cheese.

- Derek: It's possible!
It's Our Party [3.2]
- Nora: George, you've got to make them come down.
- George: You mean toss one over each shoulder and carry them downstairs?
- Nora: Ah, don't be silly. You're not nearly strong enough.
- Casey: I know nothing about football.
- Kendra: So? Just say, "great game" if they win and "terrible game" if they lose.
- Casey: Please, I can't fake it. He'll find out I don't know my kick-ups from my touch-ons!
- Kendra: Um, you mean kickoffs and touchdowns.
- Casey: Edwin, Lizzie, come on out!
- Edwin: We're not in here!
- Lizzie: Edwin, Casey already knows we're in here.
- Casey: Lizzie, Jamie's waiting for you and Edwin, there are a lot of girls for you to dance with downstairs.
- Lizzie: Now I'm definitely not coming out!
- Edwin: Me neither.

- Casey: Wha...
- Lizzie: Casey!
- Marti: Casey!
- Edwin: Casey! (they run to Casey and hug her fearfully)
- Casey: Derek, what have you done to the children?!
- Derek: Me?! I didn't do anything...yet! Perhaps you'd be interested to know what they did to me.
- Marti: Well, at least we had fun with Teddy.
- Edwin: Where is Teddy?
- Derek: (hysterically): Teddy is still here?! TEDDY!
- Casey: Who's Teddy?
- (Derek wakes up tied to his chair)

- Derek: Let's celebrate this agreement with cold pizza and milk of the chocolate variety.
Slacker Mom [3.4]
- Casey: (excitedly) Is Derek moving out!?
- Derek: (picks up his clean sock and sniffs it) They smell like the rainforest.
- Casey: Yeah, they do.
- Derek: SWEET!
- Casey: Sweet? But she touched everything.
- Derek: Yea, remind me to tip her.
- Casey: Derek, does my mom look like a maid to you?
- Derek: You're right, we should get her a uniform!
- George: What are you doing here?
- Derek: Same reason you're here (smirks at Edwin) To laugh at Ed's pants...
- Edwin: Hey!
- Derek: And to help Nora.
- (Casey has finished emptying her giant lunch Nora made.)
