    • (Cameron & Mitchell as well as Claire and her daughters step out of their cars)
      Cameron: So there's no part of you that wants to clear the air with your sister?
      Mitchell: No.
      Cameron: Okay, fine. That's your family's way, I'll respect that. But you should know it's hard on the people who love you. We feel the tension, we hear the words that cut like knives.
      Claire: Hey guys! I brought orange slices.
      Cameron: Okay. You know what, I can't bear this. Claire, Mitchell still resents you for quitting the figure skating team when you were kids. (to Alex and Haley) Ladies, come inside with me please. (to Claire and Mitchell) Work it out. Come on.
      (Cameron and the girls leave the scene)
      Mitchell: Thanks, Cam.
      Claire: Is he serious? Is that what your little jab was about this morning?
      Mitchell: Okay ... no ... yes. Okay, yes. I guess I'm still a little angry, but you know--you stole my moment, Claire.
      Claire: Yeah, 21 years ago...
      Mitchell: Okay, but it doesn't matter to you because you had your own moments. You had cheerleading and high school plays, making out with the quarterback, and...
      Claire: Oh come on, you made out with him, too.
      Mitchell: Yeah, but we had to keep it a secret.
