    • Daphne: Besides, this is my room.
      Bay: It's actually my room, technically.
      Daphne: Very funny.

    • Daphne: Oh good, did you two meet?
      (Ty shrugs)
      Daphne: Bay this is Ty. He's like my big brother.
      Bay: Not by blood right?
      Daphne: No.
      Bay: Okay cool.
      (Daphne rolls her eyes)

    • Kathryn: She's hiding something. I can feel it. (About Regina)

    • (Emmett arrives on his motorcycle) Daphne: So everyone's Ok with this ? Bay: Don't ask just go. Kathryn: Actually I'm not Ok with it, I'm sorry I wanted to be Ok with it, I'm trying but I'm just not. I mean I wouldn't let my other kids go on a motorcycle, so I can't. Regina: She's not your kid, she's mine. I don't have a say in how Bay is raised. We agreed to move in together so we could get to know each others girls, not co-parent them. John: Well Regina that's not how we saw it. But Ok. Regina: Ok. Daphne: Sorry.

    • Bay: I love that guys works. I've never met him but he always uses a lot of masks and helmets, stuff about conformity, it's totally inspiring.

    • Bay: Ok so this has to go up there. Ty: You're allowed to cover hem up ? Bay: Um not the mural, there's sort of an unspoken rule about those. Posters can be covered up if they're coming apart already. Ideally if you work on a space someone's already tagged, you answer it. Here hold this, its kind of like, these two. You see it looks like this guy is shooting him. But clearly they're done by two different artists.

    • Kathryn: That woman has a lot of nerve to sit out there in our backyard in judgment of us, when we have done nothing but welcome her. Bay: Oh mom please. Kathryn: Its true, talk about ungrateful. Bay: Yeah cause having her move into the guest house we never use was such a huge sacrifice. Kathryn: I do not like the way she talked to us, I do not like her temper. Bay: You just don't like her ! Kathryn: No I do not ! Ok what did I do ? Bay: She's my blood I'm linked to her in a million different ways that I don't even understand yet. So if you hate her, maybe you kind of hate me too !

    • Regina: All this over a bike I mean its not like I'm handing her a shotgun. John: It'll be a hell of a lot safer. Regina: Don't you tell me there are guns in this house. John: It's the 2nd amendment of the constitution. Regina: Oh my god !
