Julia: Is something wrong?
Joel: A year ago you asked me fight for you, but I was too stupid to listen. So I'm here. I don't want to live another day without you, Julia, not another second. So I'm fighting for you and I'm fighting for our marriage. I want you back.

Amber: I just can't believe I'm really going to do this alone.
Sarah: Excuse me? You're not gonna do it alone.

You shouldn't be putting all this pressure on yourself. They don't start out this age. They don't start out as big as Max. They start out little and tiny and they don't talk or do anything except poo. You can handle that.


Amber: I can't have a baby if I can't put a car seat in my car.
Sarah: It's my fault anyway, I let you watch Fast Times at Ridgemont High too early.

Well he didn't want to go with anybody, he wanted to go with you. And he wanted you to love it because your grandfather, who you know, FYI, just had open heart surgery, maybe he wanted to do something with you so that in 50 years you can look back and have all these same fond memories that he had shooting with his dad when he was your age. But, yeah, wow. What a selfish jerk.


Hank, this is not about a movie. Don't you get that?


It's not an asset, it's a home. And it kills me to work away from it, but I hurt you and I own that. I get that. So I don't want the house. If I can't have you in it, I don't want it.


How can you have a car that is incapable of transporting children if you are about to have a child?! You are going to be the worst mother in history!


Amber: What's goin' on?
Adam: You asked me to be honest with you. I don't have a backup plan. And I don't have a backup plan for my backup plan. I just know that I'm not gonna quit until you get this raise that you deserve. OK? We're family and we're gonna take care of you. OK?
Amber: Thanks boss.
Adam: I love you.
Amber: I love you, too.

Crosby: I love our house. I don't want to leave her. I'm so sorry I got us into this situation.
Jasmine: I love our house, too. You built us a beautiful house and the Luncheonette is an amazing place and you made it happen. But I don't care about any of that. Losing those things doesn't scare me at all. You not talking to me and you running off in the middle of the night? That scares me. Hey. You're my guy. For the rest of my life. You're all we need.

Max: We've now had two dates. Would you like to stay the night?
Dylan: Ummm...
Max: I read online that I can ask that now.
Dylan: Sure!
Kristina: Buddy, I'm gonna weigh in real quick. I don't think going online is the best way to figure that out.
Max: She only likes me a two and a half so there is no desire for intercourse.
Dylan: TMI dude!
Kristina: Alright that is not appropriate, intercourse.

Yes. Everything's growing except my salary.


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?


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

Adam [to Amber]
