Quotes Edit

Pepper Ann: Check out this suction-cup bud vase! It suctions a bud vase to any surface!!
Nicky: Why do I have to be the pig?
Pepper Ann: I already downloaded the script and posted my review. It was l-o-l!
Lydia: Peppie! You're not supposed to talk to strangers, whether they be live or on the internet!
Milo: Woah! Extreme Tentage: it fits in your pocket then inflates to sleep six!..."Note: do not activate in pocket"...


  • The title of this episode is a spin on the 1994 film Reality Bites.


  • A ten-minute download time for a song using a dial-up connection is highly unlikely, especially considering the fact that Pepper Ann was doing other things while the download was going on.
