Episode Quotes
Nora: I think you should take that job if you want it.
Kitty: I think I do.
Nora: We fight. We ... fight. It's not the end of the world. Just come home.

Sarah: How is it that everyone in this town knows you?
William: Well, I've been around long enough.

Justin: Hey, can I ask you a question?
Tommy: The answer is no, you can't borrow my surfboard, no, I don't have any money to lend you and yes, girls still think you're cute ... I'm kidding.

William: (to Kitty) We're here all together, and I must announce with some depredation, you're no longer grounded.
Justin: When she was fourteen, she was grounded indefinitely.
Jonathan: What for?
Kitty: Oh, it had something to do with cigarettes and surf wax --
Tommy: -- and shoplifting and a boy named Pablo.

Paige: Mars is my favorite planet. It reminds me of you, Grandpa.
William: Why is that?
Paige: It is the God of war. He was a warrior.
William: That's me all right.

Kitty: You don't want to talk, really? What kind of a relationship is that?
Nora: It's the only kind of a relationship we can have right now.

Kitty: I don't think I'm TV ready.
William: Oh, don't be so sure. Bet on yourself. Never forget, bet on yourself.

Justin: You didn't bring Jonathan?
Kitty: No, I didn't want Dad to challenge him to a boxing match or a horse race or something.
Justin: Oh God, I'd love to see that.

Noah Guare: It's not gonna be us anymore because you abandoned me, remember? You quit.
Sarah: Apparently, just in time.

Sarah: You know, I thought when I quit my old job that I would gain in time what I lost in salary. But being a working mom is like being a currency that never has enough value.
Kitty: Oh my God, I'm gonna steal that line.

Kitty: I am not the person you think I am. That's what you people can't seem to understand. I'm not a bitch. I am not aggressively plotting to make our mother feel bad.
Sarah: Then why are you staying in a hotel?
Kitty: Because the show is putting me up, and it's going to be like a gorgeous groom.
