  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Mitchell: (describing the girls he's slept with to Jay) Some were older. Some were younger. Uh... Leisel and Gretl Von Trapp.... sisters, obviously.... too far?
      Jay: I'm not an idiot. You played that record night and day.

    • (Phil and Claire have just helped Vish with his ticket for parking, and begin to believe they are smart parents).
      Phil: (as they leave) After you, doctor.
      Claire: After you, professor.
      (They walk into the door. As they leave, the sign becomes clear. It reads, "NOT AN EXIT.")

    • Phil: (in French film) I'm so confused.
      Claire: I'm not. I love this.
      Phil: You do not! Name one thing you've liked about this.
      Claire: I liked the scene with the old man on the beach.
      Phil: That was a trailer for a different movie.

    • Nina: (re: Vish's behavior when watching French films) Forgive Vish if you hear him groan. He gets annoyed if the subtitle's mistranslated.
      Phil: Well that makes deux of us.

    • Gloria: (re: Jay and her dinner guests) Why did you talk to them like that?
      Jay: What? I was just being honest. They're boring as hell!
      Gloria: Quiet! They can hear you!
      Jay: (re: the husband and what he said earlier) Oh, he probably already heard me. His hobby is listening.

    • Cameron: (in reference to Mitchell telling him Tracy's child may also be his) You don't just tell your partner you may have a baby with someone else and expect them to go back to eating a delicious and inventive meal like it's nothing?!

    • Phil: (re: Alex putting pressure on herself to do well on her exam) This is my fault. You see me achieve excellence and it puts a lot of pressure on you.
      Claire: (to Phil) What about me?
      Phil: Sorry. Yeah. It puts a lot of pressure on both of you.

    • Mitchell: (re: his night with Tracy) After that [night in the nurse's office] I didn't return any of her phone calls, and I haven't seen her since.
      Cameron: (to Lily, who stole the sunglasses) You naughty little girl!
      Mitchell: (thinking Cam's referring to him) Well, you know that's what happens when you give me Kahlua.

    • Cameron: (to Tracy) Well, I wanna hear all about Mitchell from high school. Did he have a beard?
      Tracy: Uh, you're looking at her. Of course, I didn't know it back then.

    • Mitchell: Tracy was my high school girlfriend. Yes, yes, it's true. I had girlfriends. Quite a few, actually.
      Cameron: I, too, took my fair share of ladies to the henhouse. Literally, I did take them to the henhouse. That's the only place you could get some privacy on a farm.
