  • Quotes

    • Claudia: (on phone in hospital bed) Yeah, Mom, she's seven pounds, six ounces. Oh yeah she's very cute. No I can't put her on the phone. First of all because she's one hour old. Second of all the nurses took her for some tests. (Sean walks in) Hey, listen, Sean's back so um tell Dad I love him.
      Sean: Hey babe.
      Claudia: Hey!
      Sean: Hey babe, I brought some balloons for the baby.
      Claude: Hey great she'll love them.

    • Mara Cruz: Is this seat taken?
      Walt: No Ma'am!
      (Laughing, hugging and kissing)
      Eddie: (to Claudia and Sean) See this kinda thing might have tipped us off.

    • Claudia: How can our daughter be graduating from High School, huh? We're too young for this. It seems like we just graduated from this place remember?
      Sean: Oh yeah, I remember. You were pregnant with Lily and you wanted me dead.
      Claudia: Well you knocked me up for Lily's graduation too. Sort of a poetry to that, don't you think?
      Sean: Maybe a dirty limerick.

    • Brad: Wow can you believe this will be the last time we'll be in this hallway?
      Lily: We have to come back tomorrow to give back our caps and gowns.
      Brad: No no that's outside the cafeteria. This is going to be the last time we'll be here, in this hallway, outside Annex Two.

    • Walt: Hey, son, that seat's saved.
      Eddie: For who?
      Walt: Somebody asked me to save a seat.
