Adam: I can play any instrument.

I'm holding down that loud pedal, and I'm hitting the low notes with my elbow-- bong, bong, bong! Grand finale... I lift the piano lid thing, and I strum the strings with my shoe. When I was finished, Mr. Price says: 'You got to be kidding.' Since then, I- I can't play a thing. I can't even whistle.
Joan: I'm no expert, but, uh, if you are playing with your elbows...
--Joan of Arcadia (Adam & Joan; The Boat).

He doesn't have any music. He samples nature sounds. Crickets having sex, something that he and only other crickets get off on.

Uh, Clay Fisher just flirted with you. Adam Rove is all about you. Dramatic tension ensued. Were you born without a radar?
--Joan of Arcadia (Grace to Joan; Just say no).

Luke: There's this moose. And the moose is telling this other moose that the other moose is really an elk and as such should be running with another herd.
Kevin: Uh huh?
Luke: Ok? But the moose is basing his whole assessment on what appears to be questionable evidence.
Kevin: Like his horns are kinda small?
Luke: Actually, it's more of a behavioral observation. Like, say the moose in question was seen sniffing a flower, which according to the first moose is elk-like. But the second moose isn't so sure. I mean, he doesn't feel like an Elk, he doesn't have elk thoughts. Does it make him an elk just because he likes this one flower?
Kevin: Did you want to try a science metaphor?
Luke: Does it mean I'm gay if I like a lesbian?
--Joan of Arcadia (Luke & Kevin; Bringeth it on).

Kevin: Who's pregnant?

Girl: I mean, can you believe somebody could just throw away their baby like that?
Adam: My uncle flushed Siamese twin kittens down the toilet once.
--Joan of Arcadia (Random Girl & Adam; Bringeth it on).

Joan: But thanks for the...
Adam: It's a cheerleader. You know, it's got the little hairy things.
Joan: Pompoms?
--Joan of Arcadia (Joan & Adam; Bringeth it on).

Joan: Never mind. Jane is good. We'll stick with Jane.
--Joan of Arcadia (Adam & Joan; Bringeth it on).

Well I can't do any stunts (no no)
And how about the jumps? (so-so)
So why am here? Well, it's really odd.
But I'm here to cheer on a mission from God
So put me in the game or leave me on the bench
so you get into heaven and I'll get out of French

--Joan of Arcadia (Joan's cheer; Bringeth it on).

Go Eagles, Go Eagles, Go-Go-Go Eagles
We live to cheer, we're so sincere
Unless you get in trouble, then we're out of here.
It's such a royal pain when a friend gets arrested
How could I have known? How could I have guessed it?
It's not like she's my sister, whoops, is that my beeper?
And even if she was, am I my sister's keeper?
Sorry, gotta go, tryouts are today.
Tell her we'll think of her everytime we say:
Go Eagles, Go Eagles, Go-Go-Go Eagles.
My name is Joan, this cheer's my own
So kiss these feathers, 'cause this bird has flown.

--Joan of Arcadia (Joan's cheer; Bringeth it on).

Ahem. Pardon me, but the point of this afternoon is to pretend that you might one day make a valuable contribution to society. Perhaps you could play along. For example, ms. Polk, you might want to look into journalism, which is a profession where they actually pay people to be cynical and disaffected.
--Joan of Arcadia (Mr. Price to Joan, Adam & Grace; Death be not whatever).

Adam: Then maybe he knows someone who's dead.
Joan: You can't know dead people.
Adam: Forget I attempted to contribute.
--Joan of Arcadia (Adam & Joan; Death be not whatever).

CuteGuy!God: Remember me?
Joan: Why all the familiar looks? Doing the greatest hits? Starting to get a little pleased with yourself?

--Joan of Arcadia (Adam & Joan; The devil made me do it).

Volunteer!God: And I'd rather Adam's sculpture not be part of the show.
Joan: Why? Sorry. Reflex action, like barfing.

Helen: What do you need dad for?
Joan: What's with this new thing? I ask you a question and you ask me 20 questions about it.
Luke: I think of it as socratic parenting.
--Joan of Arcadia (Helen, Joan & Luke; The devil made me do it).

Helen: Is that why you volunteered? To show support for your friend? Why didn't you just say so? Was it because you didn't want me prying into your relationship with Adam? Because I know the importance of boundaries.
Joan: Mom, do you really need me for this conversation?
--Joan of Arcadia (Helen & Joan; The devil made me do it).

Joan: Um, Rabbi, can I ask you a religious question?
Rabbi Polansky: Well, a small one, maybe, all right? 'Cause I'm enjoying my dessert.
--Joan of Arcadia (Joan & Rabbi Polanski; The devil made me do it).

Joan: Wait, I need you to help me steal this!

Joan: Yeah, like when you first hear Dave Matthews and you think he's good, but... he's not.
Father Ken: I don't know who that is.
--Joan of Arcadia (Joan & Father Ken; The devil made me do it).

You know, I don't understand what you're saying. It's all just blah, blah, blah.
--Joan of Arcadia (Joan to God; The devil made me do it).

Luke: Dad, can I have 50 bucks?
Will: Oh, I almost made it to my coffee.

Will: I just happen to have a few of those in my pocket.

Hey, yo! Did your photographic memory run out of film?

Joan: Does my hair look funny?
Grace: Your hair always looks funny. Ha ha-ah! Sometimes, it just pops into my head and I just laugh. Ha ha ha.
--Joan of Arcadia (Joan & Grace; Drive, he said).

Luke: Okay, I'm an expert on probability, and given factors such as Mom's and Dad's ages, birth control, and the average frequency of sex after twenty-three...
