In statistics, statistical significance is used to measure how well a set of data demonstrates a particular hypothesis or statement. The term significant other is used to refer to a person's intimate relation, typically a spouse or a boyfriend/girlfriend.
Megan asserts her claim that Cueball is her boyfriend by presenting the time that he had spend with people in the form of a box plot, with her data point lying far ahead of the rest of the chart. Cueball accepts her claim, to which she responds with a pun on the word "significant," combining the phrases "statistically significant" and "significant other" in a so bad pun that in the title text, Cueball breaks up with her.
