  • Quotes (8)

    • Sarah: I never planned to be the only Walker there. Kitty: You may not have expected it but it doesn't surprise me. Ojai was always gonna be yours. I knew it, Dad knew it, even Tommy knew it. I'm sorry but you're the heir apparent.

    • Justin: (regarding Tommy): If he doesn't know who we are, he could be a completely different person. Kevin: Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    • Nora: Maybe I learned something over the last few days. Kevin: Really? The only thing that I learned is that vegan food gives me the trots.

    • Robert: You want a separation, you got it. Because I'm done. I'm done chasing you and I'm done trying to figure out what you want. If you want to move to Pasadena, move to Pasadena. You want to take Evan with you, we'll work out the terms of the custody. You want to tell everybody in the world that we're separating, do it. Kitty: Robert. Robert: You just closed the deal. Have Kevin work out the details, whatever you think is fair. And for the record, I didn't come down here because Kevin told me to. And I wasn't fighting you on the terms of the separation because I wanted to be Governor. I was fighting you on the terms of the separation because I believe that if you move out of our home, that you will never come back. You want a separation, this is what one looks like.

    • Karin: Silence is as deep as eternity. Speech is as shallow as time. Kevin: And this place is as nutty as a fruitcake.

    Allusions (1)

    • Justin: By my calculation, you lost contact with Mom over an hour ago, which means that every minute we're on this phone call, she could be heading up a river into the heart of darkness. Heart of Darkness is a novel by Joseph Conrad published in 1902 about the search for a company agent in the Belgian Congo in Africa. It was also used for the basis of the 1979 movie Apocalypse Now although the setting here was Cambodia during the Vietnam War.
