Joel: We should finalize it.
Julia: What?
Joel: I think we should finalize it. You know, talk to the lawyers, file the paperwork, dot the Is, cross the Ts. If there's anything that's going to tell our boy that he's a part of our family, that's it. I just think we need to, you know, take the leap.

Joel: Okay, ya know what? That's my wife. Don't talk to her that way.
Victor: Whatever. She didn't even get arrested.

Julia: He's going to have bad teeth, but he tried.
Joel: Well, maybe the sugar buzz helps him study.

I have never asked that of you because you know why? Because I respect you. I thought that you could work and still be a parent, and I wish you could just pay me that same courtesy.

You either pick a sport or play the violin.

Joel: Hey, our son is coming.
Julia: Our son is coming.

Joel: Why do we still have a home phone. The only people who still have it is telemarketers.
Julia: And my parents.
Joel: Exactly.

Camille: Zeek, the walkies...
Zeek: One per car. Please don't lose these.
Joel: It'd be hard to.

Troy, my wife's job is actually to uphold the law. Do you understand? It's to make sure people aren't treated unfairly. So when you come into our house and you try to coerce us into an illegal payment...

Joel: Beach, movies, death metal.
Julia: Yanks. No favorite books.
Joel: Oh, well, we'll have an illiterate headbanger. That's okay.
Julia: But a pretty one!
Joel: Yeah, hello!

Mmmmm. My wife picturing our birth father stripping. That's a little weird for me.

You killed her!

Parenthood Quotes

Amber, you know, I was two years in Viet Nam. Do you know what I thought about, what I dreamt about? Coming home, having a family, having grandkids. I dreamt you, Amber. And Haddie, and Drew, and Sydney and Max. We almost lost ya Amber. You've had some bad breaks. You're not feeling good about yourself. You didn't get into Berkeley? Well boo friggin who. You got to suck it up girl, you're a Braverman. You got my blood in your veins. If you ever do something like this again, if you even think of doing something like this again, I will kick your little butt all the way from here to the Golden Gate Bridge. You do not have my permission to mess with my dreams. Are we clear?

Zeek

Amber, life will knock you down more times than you can possibly imagine. Don't knock yourself down.

Adam [to Amber]
