Quotes (10)

  • Mitchell: (describing the girls he's slept with to Jay) Some were older. Some were younger. Uh... Leisel and Gretl Von Trapp.... sisters, obviously.... too far? Jay: I'm not an idiot. You played that record night and day.

  • (Phil and Claire have just helped Vish with his ticket for parking, and begin to believe they are smart parents). Phil: (as they leave) After you, doctor. Claire: After you, professor. (They walk into the door. As they leave, the sign becomes clear. It reads, "NOT AN EXIT.")

  • Phil: (in French film) I'm so confused. Claire: I'm not. I love this. Phil: You do not! Name one thing you've liked about this. Claire: I liked the scene with the old man on the beach. Phil: That was a trailer for a different movie.

  • Nina: (re: Vish's behavior when watching French films) Forgive Vish if you hear him groan. He gets annoyed if the subtitle's mistranslated. Phil: Well that makes deux of us.

  • Gloria: (re: Jay and her dinner guests) Why did you talk to them like that? Jay: What? I was just being honest. They're boring as hell! Gloria: Quiet! They can hear you! Jay: (re: the husband and what he said earlier) Oh, he probably already heard me. His hobby is listening.

  • Cameron: (in reference to Mitchell telling him Tracy's child may also be his) You don't just tell your partner you may have a baby with someone else and expect them to go back to eating a delicious and inventive meal like it's nothing?!

  • Phil: (re: Alex putting pressure on herself to do well on her exam) This is my fault. You see me achieve excellence and it puts a lot of pressure on you. Claire: (to Phil) What about me? Phil: Sorry. Yeah. It puts a lot of pressure on both of you.

  • Mitchell: (re: his night with Tracy) After that [night in the nurse's office] I didn't return any of her phone calls, and I haven't seen her since. Cameron: (to Lily, who stole the sunglasses) You naughty little girl! Mitchell: (thinking Cam's referring to him) Well, you know that's what happens when you give me Kahlua.
