In ref to paint:

Corey, I think his name was, invites Angela to paint the oak tree after school. IIRC, this took place in episode Betrayal, towards the end.

Word: fat-free

Patty says to Angela upon seeing her dyed hair in the pilot, "We'll always be able to spot you...in a crowd." CLASSIC!

Next word: YMCA

Is that too easy?
There's so many different ways to be connected to people.
There are the people you feel this unspoken connection to,
even though there's not even a word for it.
There's the people who you've known forever, who know you in
this way that other people can't, because they've seen you
change...

they've let you change.

Ok, now I feel bad for not knowing this one. I feel like I should look this one up but that wouldn't be fair. Perhaps it's time for a second run-through.

Run-through as in watch the show again?? Always a good idea! I'm glad it's a little bit of a challenge! :D

Jordan says this in "Pressure". He and Angela are having an awkward conversation about having/not having sex. He tells her, "It's what you're supposed to do. Unless you're, like, abnormal."

Next word: weirdness

Off the top of my head (could be wrong here), when Brian reply to Jordan's question - what's ironic? - he says:
"The component of weirdness in a situation" (or something like that)

Is this right?

If so, my word is : Factory
"Aaaand dance by the light of the mooooon"

Exactly right! I'll always love that definition of irony - pure Brian.

As for "factory" - that's good old Mr. Racine when he tells Angela to drop out of school...to get out of the "mind control factory".

Next - "Take a second chance"

A hint to the clue: it's not exactly in the dialogue.
