Raven (to Chelsea): Think about it, Chels: you against Ben Sturky? Girl, you do the math. (has a vision of Chelsea losing against Ben) Actually, math wasn't my very best subject.
Cory: It's Chelsea!
Raven: What's she doing here?
Eddie: Well, maybe she's dropping off her laundry, I mean everyone else in the world is!
Raven: C'mon Eddie, you know how upset Chelsea gets when one person doesn't like her. This is 187 people not liking her!
Chelsea: I mean, I'm friendly, I'm loyal, I'm energetic... I just described a dog, didn't I?
