Kristina: You know what the problem is for mothers?
Sarah: Daughters.
Kristina: Daughters.
Julia: Amen.

Sarah: It's about flowers right?
Amber: I think it might be about your vag.

Why do you insist on making every mistake I made?

Amber is from a broken home, so that means she doesn't know a serious relationship from a sandwich yet.

Sarah: Why does she hate me mom?
Camille: Daughters hate their mothers; I think it's the law of nature. But you know what, then they come back.

Sarah: I think I'll just try and get along with you and trust you.
Amber: OK. I'm meeting Damien and he's picking me up.

It's nice to live here, and of course what 38 year old woman doesn't enjoy living at home with her parents.

Sarah: Seduce me with The Sound and the Fury.
Mr. Cyr: It would work every time.

Amber: Can't you just punish me please?
Sarah: No I can't punish you, because I ran out of good punishments for you in Fresno. We'll have to see what he comes up with.

Sarah: He's not the only kid who's been dealt a rough hand.
Adam: I know.
Sarah: All Drew has done his whole life is wait for his father to show up...

Amber: You do know what he's doing in there, don't you?
Sarah: Yes, he's getting clean.
Amber: Spanking clean.

You're still my favorite son.

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]
