  • Quotes (13)

    • Sarah: Mom, I didn't come here tonight because of Rebecca. I came here because I want things to be better with us. I need you to care about me the same way that you care about the world. Nora: Well, of course I love you. Sarah: Then stop punishing me. Nora: I'm sorry. I... I'm sorry (she breaks into tears) I'm just so mad. Your father's dead and I need someone to be furious with. It's so hard to tell somebody who isn't around anymore to go to hell.

    • Rebecca: (to the Walkers after the dinner debacle) You're the most insane group of people I've ever met!

    • Justin: (Tommy and Kevin want to DNA test Rebecca) Are you both high? You want your DNA test right here? She's hot, I feel nothing.

    • Saul: Look at us, I'm in my 60s and we're like in high school with a slumber party.
      Kevin: Does high school ever end uncle Saul?
      Saul: No Kevin. It's like taxes, we're doomed to repeat it year after year.

    • Kitty: (To Robert after dinner with him and his kids.) Nobody likes me that much that fast and I can't help wondering if maybe you're just looking for a family to stand up with you at the podium.

    Trivia (1)

    • When Robert tells Sophia about inviting Kitty to dinner, she tells him that she knows about her, because there was a picture of them in a magazine in which Kitty was wearing a red dress. But back on episode 12, Sexual Politics, we see that when Kitty and Robert were photographed, Kitty was already wearing her coat, the read dress was not visible.
