I really hope you are kidding.

If you aren't, the answer is no.

1. After only a week your boss has nothing to abse a reference on.
2. The last thing you want to tell a potential employer is that you quit a job after a week. Just leave that position off your resume.

Its a part-time temp position. But ok I'll leave it off.

On my opinion, i think it will be fine if you and your supervisor had made a good employee and employer relationship within that one week. If so, try to ask first if your supervisor would agree on the idea. On the other hand, if you quit and you left with a bad impression, it is probably not a good idea to use your supervisor as a reference.

If you are doing temp work someone at the agency should be your reference.
