Episode Quotes
Tommy: Everybody else might sit around and feel bad for you, but I won’t.
Justin: Look, I didn’t ask for your sympathy and I certainly didn’t ask for your help.
Tommy: When are you gonna grow up-
Justin: You are a piece of work, just like dad.
Tommy: Get off me. I’m not like him. Dad never stopped caring about what you did with your life. I do. I stop right now. I stop today.

Kevin: Do you think it makes me feel good the rest of the family have a life and I have nothing?
Nora: Nothing? What, you have a mother who loves you-
Kevin: Yes, I have a mother who loves me, I also have a mother who is terrified of being alone and thinks it's her gay son's job to fill some void that even dad knew better than to try and fill.
