The Joel I know would have said to Crosby, "This is my goddaughter and I'm not bailing out."

Julia: Thank God green week is over.
Ed: The environment is such a pain in the ass.
Julia: It really is.

Julia: Don't do it. Don't move out. It's not to late to change your mind, you know. We can just, we can work on the marriage and I can be different or try harder. Or just... Don't give up on me.
Joel: I'm so sorry, I wish we weren't at this point, but we are. I gotta go.

Adam: Do you have feelings for this guy?
Julia: I don’t know. No. It’s just been so hard for Joel and I. We haven’t been on the same page at all. Adam, he doesn't look at me, and so Ed just, he sees me, ya know?

Julia: Listen, I don’t know what you thought…
Ed: I thought that I felt something from you. That’s what I thought.
Julia: I’m married.

Joel: Julia, I am working right now, and I will see you whenever I get home.
Julia: Well, I'll see you whenever that is.

Victor: Why did you say I was smart when I'm dumb?
Julia: Sweetheart...
Victor: You're a liar.

Julia: I didn't come here to talk.
Joel: No you didn't. Ah. Wow. This is a first.
Julia: I mean, if you don't have time...
Joel: Oh no. I have time.

Julia: That's rude, though. Someone is ringing your doorbell, you answer the door.
Joel: You never answer the door.

Camille: Do you know I've never been out of the country?
Julia: Mom, I had no idea you were thinking about all of this stuff.

Joel: How do I set boundaries with your sister?
Julia: Her you just help.

What's going to shred his self confidence is keeping him in a class where he cannot keep up. There are studies on this.
