Sarah: Hey, I didn't hear you come in.
Zeek: I caught you looking at porn, didn't I? That's okay, they did a study, ninety-eight percent of....
Sarah: Dad! I wasn't looking at porn.

Zeek: Who wears the pants in the family?
Crosby: What year do you think this is? The fifties? There's no one wearing the pants, or not wearing the pants...it's a partnership.
Zeek: Oh my God, that sounds dreadful.

I keep walking into different rooms in my house and finding people drinking. Should I be taking it personally?

A man has a certain relationship with his Thanksgiving day bird.

I went to your little Portuguese pound cake, and told him to stay away from what's mine!

Adam: So what do you do, talk...share?
Zeek: The only thing I am doing is dancing with gay Tony. You gotta see this guy move Adam. He's like a finely tuned European sports car. Very sensitive and responds to the lightest touch. Honestly, it's amazing.

(to his dance partner, Tony) I want you to know that I'm okay with the gays.

Hey Millie, I would love to dance with you.

Joel: What am I going to do; I'm going to show them how to use fabric softener properly?

Crosby: Well, I'm his dad and I don't have a say in it.
Zeek: Oh I see, well your balls will still be here when you get back.
Jabbar: What balls?

Zeek: Got some anger in you?
Joel: Well...
Zeek: A little spirit. I like that. I don't think I've ever heard you say more than five words since I knew you.
Joel: Well...
Zeek: No really, I hear you and I see you.

Zeek: I couldn't get Adam to drink one beer with me.
Crosby: No way, if he drinks too much the stick might fall out of his ass.

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]
