    • QUOTES (6)

      • Miranda: Is it just red wine or can she receive messages with any alcohol?
        Declan: Only the red wine. It's a '72 Pardisi; only wine she drinks.
        Miranda: Good wine.
        Declan: Yeah, that's what she says. How do you know?
        Miranda: My parents have a vineyard.

      • Peggy: Why don't you have her stop by for a physical? Just to be sure.
        Declan: Yeah, if I could get her to...talking her into that would be...
        Peggy: You? The expert of talking people into things they don't wanna do?
        Declan: You don't underst...this is my sister, she can be...frustrating isn't a big enough word.
        Peggy: It's a family trait.
        Declan: Nah, I mean she's just stubborn beyond...
        Peggy: Irresponsible, pushy.
        Declan: Yeah. I mean you try and give her advice and she won't even listen to you.
        Peggy: And all you want is what's best for her.
        Declan: You hit the nail right between the eyes. Wait a minute, are you trying to tell me something?

      • (Declan and Miranda are discussing a bottle of wine that Miranda is going to test for Declan)
        Declan: Be careful 'cause it's expensive.
        Miranda: Yeah, I know.
        Declan: Oh that's right, I forgot. The vineyard.
        Miranda: It's a small one Declan; only a few hundred acres.
        Declan: A few hundred. So you must be kinda rich huh?
        Miranda: Kinda.
        Declan: How kinda?

      • Declan: I guess I should be happy, right? My sister's not dying.
        (Peggy nods in agreement)
        Declan: We used to be so close, Peggy. Inseparable; wasn't anything we couldn't do together.
        Peggy: So what happened?
        Declan: I don't know. My father died and you would think that would bring a family closer together, but we just drifted apart; me, my sister my mom. We're like strangers now, you know.

      • Declan: I wanna talk to you about Dad.
        Nina: Dad. Now?
        Declan: Mm hmm. Remember the meds that we had to give him every 4 hours and that timer that Mom had?
        Nina: Yeah, what about it?
        Declan: That weekend that you and Mom went away and I was supposed to take care of Dad...but I went over to Joey Saboli's to watch the ball game. I lost track of time and I came home late. Dad took a turn for the worse the very next day.
        Nina: Declan.
        Declan: No, it's because of me.
        Nina: Declan, you're not responsible for Dad's death.
        Declan: I was hanging out with my friend instead of looking after Dad.
        Nina: Dad's decline started when he was diagnosed with cancer. By the time we brought him home from the hospital he was already terminal. Those meds were to ease the pain.
        Declan: I know. He was in pain and I wasn't there. My point is, Mom and Dad were always there for us and I just wanna...I wanna be there for you, always.
        Nina: You've been beating yourself up over this for all those years?
        Declan: Kinda hard to be around you and Mom sometimes.
        Nina: No one's gonna blame you Declan, so stop blaming yourself. It's not your fault.

      • Declan: My sister doesn't really share the same interest in weird stuff that I do.
        Peggy: Hmm. Well, I mean, I think you should see her. I mean, just to put your mind at ease. I mean, I'm sure she's fine.
        Declan: She's in New York.
        Peggy: I thought you said she lived in Philadelphia?
        Declan: No. She moved to New York a few years ago. She's doing the whole 'acting' thing.
        Peggy: Didn't you say she was in retail?
        Declan: No. She was; she changed her mind again.
        Peggy: Huh. Acting. Wow.
        Declan: Struggling actor thing, don't get excited. I mean she...bit parts, barely pays the rent, that kinda thing.
        Peggy: Still, it takes a lot of guts to move to New York City. Good for her.
        Declan: Yeah.
        Peggy: Is everything okay between you two?
        Declan: Huh?
        Peggy: Declan.
        Declan: Yeah. I just haven't talked to her in a while. I'll call her.
        Peggy: Good idea.
