Crosby: Hey! Jules! You better get inside or you're gonna get screwed! You gotta get your sign-up sheet!
Julia: I know!

Julia: You know, I've only ever had the one job since grad school. I put all my eggs in one basket, and now that Leon is being vindictive, I'm screwed. And he deserves to be, because I messed up. He has every
right...
Joel: Honey, you didn't screw up, you chose your children over your work.
Julia: Thank you, but that is revisionist, I got overwhelmed and I screwed up.

Victor: Can Max and I go to the vending machine?
Julia: Yeah, of course!
Victor: Thanks Mom!

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.

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

Julia: Okay. I'm going to give you my best legal advice.
Crosby: Your best.

This stay at home parent thing? The full time thing? Harder than I thought.

Julia: I am a really good swimmer, right Syd?

Julia: Our son is coming.

I know you don't want me in your life right now, but I don't know how to do that, so call me if you want to practice. I'm really good at that kind of thing.

I'm trying to be very respectful of her privacy, even though she is living in my house and carrying my baby.

Joel: Exactly.

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]
