    • Baze's Father: You know what, Nate? You can kiss the bar good-bye. I'm done. Baze: You know what? Baze's Father: What? Baze: I'm done. You can take your bar, because I am done with you, and I am done with all of this. Sixteen years ago, I was afraid to tell you--and you know, it seems funny, given everything--because I didn't want to disappoint you and let you down, but somehow, I have managed to do that every day since. You were never gonna believe that I was responsible. You were never gonna believe in me. So I don't, I don't know why I came to this dinner. Oh, wait. I do know why. It's because you threatened to take away the one means I have of actually supporting my kid, because that's what I'm trying to do here, Dad, whether you believe it or not, is support my kid, because that's what I thought parents did! Baze's Father: I supported you every day of your life! Baze: Not in the way that counts. You call me crazy, but I thought that, that, that loving your kid meant that you actually made them feel like you did. You know what? You ask me why I want to do this, why I want to be a dad. It's because I don't want to turn my back on Lux, the way that you... Baze's Father: The way what, huh? Come on, say it. Like I did to you? That's the story you tell yourself, to keep from thinking that you're a screw-up? You blame me?

    • Baze: Not everything in her life was bad. I don't like the looks of it, but Bug, Tasha... Cate: What? Baze: I don't know. To Lux, they're the good. I mean, if you think about it, we both had families before Lux. So maybe she just wants you to realize that she had a family before us. Cate: Pretty insightful for a quarterback.

    • Cate's Mom: (referring to Cate and Baze) The two of you, you're not ready to be parents. Cate: Oh my god, this should be really good, coming from the women that's on her what, fourth husband? Cate's Mom: So I've learned to take life's lemons and make lemonade. Cate: With vodka...

    • Cate's Mom: Do you know what a sense of relief I have? Cate: I know, Mom, I know. Lux, she's a great kid. Cate's Mom: Yeah, but honey, not just that. All these years I thought you lost your virginity to that giant wasp. But the quarterback? You know, he's single, right?

    • (Cate and Baze force Lux to go to dinner without Bug) Lux: So is this being a good parent? Baze: What, ripping you out of the clutches of some tattooed freak? I don't know, is it? Cate: Yes it is.

    • Math: (referring to Baze's father) Look, if Lux is what pushed him over the edge enough to threaten to take the bar back, do something to fix it. Baze: That's a great idea, Doc. Why don't you fire up the DeLorean, I'll grab the condoms, and we will head back to the 90s. This is a reference to the Back to the Future movie trilogy, released between 1985 and 1990. Christopher Lloyd played the role of Dr. Emmett Brown ("Doc"), who created a time machine out of a DeLorean.
