  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Paige: Mars is my favorite planet. It reminds me of you, grandpa.
      William: Why is that?
      Paige: It is the god of war. He was a warrior.
      William: That's me all right.

    • Nora: I think you should take that job if you want it.
      Kitty: I think I do.
      Nora: We fight. We...fight! It's not the end of the world. Just come home.

    • William (to Kitty): We're here all together, and I must announce with some depredation, you're no longer grounded.
      Justin: When she was fourteen, she was grounded indefinitely.
      Jonathan: What for?
      Kitty: Oh, it had something to do with cigarettes and surf wax.
      Tommy: ...And shoplifting and a boy named Pablo.

    • Justin: Hey, can I ask you a question?
      Tommy: The answer is no, you can't borrow my surfboard, no, I don't have any money to lend you and yes, girls still think you're cute. I'm kidding.

    • Kitty (to Nora): Tommy and dad think the same things I do, and you've managed to reconcile forty years of loving somebody who fundamentally disagrees with you. But you can't love me. And I don't know what it's about.

    • Sarah: How is it that everyone in this town knows you?
      William: Well, I've been around long enough.

    • Kitty (after finding a ring in her drink): Jonathan!
      Jonathan: Of course I didn't want you. Of course I didn't make it appealing. But I think maybe there's a better job. Stay in New York. Start a family with me.

    • Kitty: You know it's just that I've seen the show, and for me, politics is not about show business. It's... I'm very passionate about my views.
      White Peyton: What makes you think we don't want that?
      Kitty: Well, the fact is that radio... it works for me, I get to meld off, and then I go to the movies, and I'm not out there.
      White: Yeah, in another words, you can hide in satellite radio. Peak out, just enough to not make a difference.

    • Noah: It's not gonna be us anymore because you abandoned me, remember? You quit.
      Sarah: Apparently, just in time.

    • Kitty (to Nora): You don't want to talk, really? What kind of a relationship is that?
      Nora: It's the only kind of a relationship we can have right now.

    • Sarah: You know, I thought when I quit my old job that I would gain in time what I lost in salary. But being a working mom is like being a currency that never has enough value.
      Kitty: Oh my god, I'm gonna steal that line.

    • Sarah (about Fawn): Who is that?
      Kitty: She's with Justin.
      Sarah: Nice rack...

    • Kitty: I don't think I'm TV ready.
      William: Oh, don't be so sure. Bet on yourself. Never forget, bet on yourself.

    • Nora (about Kitty): You look wonderful. Just wonderful.
      Kitty: Thanks.
      Nora: You could use a little sun, maybe some raisins or something... How's the hotel?
      Kitty: Fine.
      Nora: Good, good.
      Kitty (to William): Raisins?
      William: Well...

    • Justin: You didn't bring Jonathan?
      Kitty: No, I didn't want dad to challenge him to a boxing match or a horse race or something...
      Justin: Oh god, I'd love to see that.

    • Kitty: Oh my god! Oh my god, you're actually here.
      Justin: Yeah, it's a miracle. I can hardly believe it myself.
      Kitty: Well, you are unreliable, and you are very skinny. Justin, really, what is that?

    • Kitty: Hi, mister.
      Jonathan: Oh, you have the kitchen crisis face.
      Kitty: Aw, is it that obvious?
      Jonathan: That and the floating smoke.

    • Kitty: What am I going to do, Kevin? Help me...
      Kevin: Okay, is there any chance you may have garlic, pasta, frozen peas and chicken broth?
      Kitty: No peas, but oh, you know what, I do have a little sage leftover from the dead chickens.
      Kevin: Okay, good. Then you can have a delicious meal ready in ten minutes that anyone in Milan would die for. And that was too gayish sentence even from me.

    • Sarah: Just call her [their mother], Kitty.
      Kitty: Sarah, she knows I'm coming, she could've called me, and you know what, I don't have time for this.

    • Kitty: I am not the person you think I am. That's what you people can't seem to understand. I'm not a bitch. I am not aggressively plotting to make our mother feel bad.
      Sarah: Then why are you staying in a hotel?
      Kitty: Because the show is putting me up, and it's going to be like a gorgeous groom.
