  • Quotes

    • Mitchell: (re: putting pepper in Lily's mouth) Relax. It's a seasoning.
      Cameron: Well, then, why don't you try some?
      (they fight as Cameron tries to insert pepper into Mitchell's mouth. When he does, Mitchell bites him).
      Cameron: Ow, you bit me!
      Mitchell: Well... why don't you sing me a song about it?

    • Cameron: (reacting to what Mommy Forum suggests) I am not hiring some hobo to come over and traumatize my child. She's already prone to flashbacks if you know what I mean.
      Mitchell: Kay, you know she didn't fight in Vietnam, right?

    • Mitchell: (reading from the Mommy Forum to figure out what to do about Lily's biting) Well, this one says "when my daughter bit her brother, I put a pinch of pepper in her mouth. She cried and cried but she never bit again. Smiley face."
      Cameron: Oh, well the smiley face makes it okay. I water-boarded our toddler. LOL.

    • Cameron: (referring to how Lily learned her to bite people) Well, I'm not the one who uses my teeth as a multi-tool.
      Mitchell: Here we go. Cookies for Lily (rips the bag open with his teeth) and wine for us (pops the cork with his teeth) .

    • Cameron: (in reference to Lily and Mitchell) Oh, wow. I have a daughter who bites and a partner who stings.

    • Luke: Here's something I didn't know about mannequins. They don't have a weiner.
      Manny: (clearly referring to the pocket square) What the heck is that?
      Phil: (thinking he was referring to "weiner") It's a nicer word for "penis."

    • Cameron: (to Mitchell, re: Lily) She bit me!
      Mitchell: Are you serious?
      Cameron: Oh, ow! She did it again. It's like Twilight back here.

    • Claire: So, the kids are gonna be here in two hours, so... (claps) Everybody back to work!
      Gloria: (claps) Everybody back to work!
      Claire: I just said that.
      Gloria: And I just co-said it.

    • Jay: (to Manny and Luke) Boys, here's the only thing you need to know about being a man. Never let someone take what is yours.
      Phil: Unless it's just a parking spot and there's plenty of others.
      Jay: That's sweet, Phil. You gotta write that down. You got any lipstick in your purse?

    • Phil: (to Manny and Luke) I want you to know there's more to being a man than just shopping for fancy outfits.
      Jay: Yeah, pretty soon, you get some on your chest... you start answering the phone, people don't think you're ladies.

    • Claire: Hey, Mitch. Where are you?
      Mitchell: Oh, we're at the park. You would not believe how some of these people dress their kids. Lily's friend just pulled a Britney Spears getting out of a sandbox car.
      Claire: So, Dad's on the line...

    • Gloria: (picking up something she thinks is a pocket squarel) Ay, look. This might work
      Manny: Well, except that's it turquoise. Oh. And a bra.
      Gloria: Do you think the kids in my village had pocket squares?
