  • Quotes

    • Nate : Look, don't take this out on mom. What is it that you want to say to me?
      David : Well, there's a body that's spent over two hours in a van, unrefrigerated, decomposing at a rate much faster than you could ever imagine, thanks for making my life just that much more difficult. Thanks for undemining my authority with our employees. And thanks for making it so clear to me that my choice to dedicate myself to this business and to this family was really stupid, because apparently I would have been rewarded just the same for wasting my life.
      Nate : Oh, my life is a waste? Fuck you! At least I enjoy it.
      David : Oh, well lucky you.
      Nate : Dave at-at least let me help.
      David : You've helped enough!

    • Claire : Okay, spare me the tough love rationalization. Just bottom line it, please.

    • Federico: (Referring to the deceased's erection) Angel lust. You can be dead, but you're never really dead.

    • Claire:(To Ruth) Apparently you want a child with an eating disorder.

    • Nathaniel Sr. (Reading his tombstone): Is that the best anybody could come up with? "Father, husband, caregiver"?
      Nate: How would you prefer? "Introvert, sadist, mindfucker"

    • Nate: Umm, Brenda? Why is my name tattooed on your ass?

    • David: Do you have any respect for human life at all?
      Nate: I have a huge respect for human life. I just didn't know they can take a dump when they're dead.

    • Claire: Why are you still here anyway? Why don't you go back to Seattle?
      Nate: Because I would miss the joyful sense of belonging I get here.

    • Claire: Great, I have to miss another day of school? What am I like some poor old knocked up Victorian waif, who wants to stay hidden from school?

    • Nate: I get enough dead at home. You're supposed to be me haven away from all that.
      Brenda: I'm not supposed to be anything.

    • David: Why'd you let me sleep so late?
      Keith: I didn't have the heart to wake you up. You looked so relaxed. Which I don't see that often.

    • Notary: Should you choose not to go to college, the money will become available to you when you're 25.
      Claire: So this is like Blackmail from beyond the grave

    • Nate (About getting 50% of the company): What? Wwwas he high? Why would he do that?

    • Brenda: We're all wounded. We carry our wounds around with us throughout life and eventually they kill us. Things happen that leave a mark in space, in time. In us.
