  • Quotes (14)

    • Alex: (to Gloria) I'm not pretty like Haley and you. Gloria: That's ridiculous! You're beautiful! Alex: I'm not. But that's okay. I'm the smart one. Gloria: Hmm... the cute busboy doesn't know that you're smart. Alex: What?! Gloria: He's been smiling at you every time he comes to the table. Alex: He does not! Gloria: Why do you think we are the only people with bread?

    • Gloria: I always wanted a daughter, to dress her up in pretty dresses, do her hair, her nails, her make up (laughs). No one knows this but for the first year of his life, I made up Manny like a girl and told everybody that he was my daughter (laughs). Ah, but just for a few times, I didn't want to mess with his head. When he found the pictures I told him it was his twin sister who died (Jay looks shocked).

    • Manny: Those cookies smell like heaven. Your own recipe? Claire: No, I just throw 'em in the oven. Manny: And added the secret ingredient of caring? Claire: Sure. So, you and Luke having a good time? Manny: I don't know. He won't come out of his box. Maybe I'll just stay here and spend some time with my sister. Claire: Oh, right, I guess technically I would be your stepsister. Manny: My mother says we are never to use the word "step" because it means "not real." And we are a real family. (Pauses) So, what is the matter Claire? Claire: What? Manny: You seem sad. Claire: It's just…stuff with Alex. You know, kids stuff. Manny: Ugh, kids, you don't have to tell me. My school is full of them.

    • Cameron: (Returning with quantity-sized products) Oh, hey. I got the toothpaste and the soap. Mitchell: Well, good. Now we can open that general store. I thought we were just here to get diapers. Cameron: We had a saying on the farm, as long as you're brining the mule to the market, you-- (Mitchell rolls his eyes) I feel you rolling your eyes at me.

    • Gloria: Alex, why don't you come shopping with me? Maybe I can help you find something that you like. Claire: That's a really nice offer, but that's not really her thing. Alex: Actually, I'd love to go. See, you don't know what my thing is. You have no idea what my thing is. Claire: I know what your thing is. Your thing is to provoke, just like your sister's thing is to never come out of her room, and your brother's thing (Notices Luke outside without his pants on) uh, well there's your brother's thing. (To Luke from the window) Luke, put 'em on!
