Does the following produce something like what you are looking for?


data = Sort[Table[Random[], {10}]]; 
lin = a*x + b /. FindFit[data, a*x + b, {a, b}, x]; 
par = a*x^2 + b*x + c /. FindFit[data, a*x^2 + b*x + c, 
     {a, b, c}, x]; 

Show[Block[{$DisplayFunction = Identity}, 
    {ListPlot[data], Plot[lin, {x, 1, 10}, 
      PlotStyle -> Blue], Plot[par, {x, 1, 10}, 
      PlotStyle -> Red]}], PlotRange -> 
    {Automatic, {-0.1, 1.1}}, Frame -> True, 
   Axes -> None, Epilog -> {Text["linear fit", {0.5, 1}, 
      {-1, 0}], Text["parabolic fit", {0.5, 0.92}, 
      {-1, 0}], Red, Line[{{0, 0.92}, {0.5, 0.92}}], 
     Blue, Line[{{0, 1}, {0.5, 1}}]}];
