You're gong to prom on a blind date! It's like 1954!

Sarah

Sarah, there is an opportunity that has arisen that could give you a staged reading at the Berkeley Theater Company.

Gilliam

She's scared that we're all going to realize she doesn't want us to know how beautiful she is.

Haddie

The prom is a parent and school sanctioned club med for teenagers!

Adam

Mom, this is exactly why I didn't tell you. I'm not ready to make a plan on what to do next. I'm not ready to think about it that way. I'm feeling vulnerable and upset and sensitive about it and I don't want advice or ideas right now. I just want you to listen and I just can't talk to you about it yet this way because I'm still too hurt, okay?

Amber

I didn't get into Berkeley.

Amber

Joel: Awesome, awesome.Thank you, so much. Yeah, baby, my boys can swim. Woo!
Sydney. Swim? Daddy, are we getting fish?
Joel: No, daddy just did really well on a test.

Gillian: Sarah, when you investigate me on the world wide web, which I would do if I were you, you're going to come across some oddities or two. Try not to do what others do so easily these days and don't prematurely compartmentalize me.
Sarah: I won't if you won't.
Gillian. You got it.

Max has definitely benefited from the program we have at Footpath socially, and the last thing we would want to do is talk ourselves out of having a fine family such as yours at our community. However, you need to decide if max would be better off at a school where he would meet his full potential socially and academically.

Max's Teacher

Joel: I can't do this, honey.
Julia: Why not?
Joel: I don't even know where to start. Ths room is freezing, I'm sitting here, they're playing muzak, there are people walking by and they gave me a stack of Playboys from the 1980s and told me to give 'em a call when I'm done. It's so weird, honey.
Julia: Well, what do you want me to do? Do you, um, do you want me to help?
Joel: Whaddya mean?
Julia: I mean, like, phone sex.
Joel: You know how to do that?

I hope my brother-in-law was worth it because he's not the only one you screwed here.

Kristina

I'm busy trying to look after my son, trying to look after my family. You're not even on my radar!

Parenthood Season 2 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]
