Parenthood Season 6 Episode 5: "The Scale of Affection Is Fluid" Quotes
Julia: I am seeing Chris, yes, that is who I have been seeing and I have a right not to feel bad about that.
Joel: You have every right. What you do not have a right to do is to go around introducing our kids to whoever it is you feel like sleeping with that week.
Max: It has come to my attention that there is a basic scale of affection on which all human relationships operate and when a boy and a girl fraternize it's important to understand where on that scale their feelings for each other lie.
Dylan: I missed this part of the talk, but I can dig. What are my options?
Max: The scale is from one to five with five being the peak of affection and one being firmly in the friend zone. In our case I like you at a five. Now, I need to know the best quantitative representation of your feelings for me.
Dylan: Um, how about a two.
Max: I can deal with a two.
Dylan: You can?
Max: Yes. Two was approximately my mother's number for my father when they met, though that changed over time.
Dylan: I see.
Max: In any case, the scale is fluid, and I imagine I have a decade, maybe more, to change your mind. I have to go to class. I will talk to you later Dylan.
Dylan: Hey Asperger's! Maybe a two and a half.
Zeek: We're early?
Zeek: I had my eyes closed, I feel like I've gone through time.
Crosby: [laughs] You're a day early.
Crosby: What if I told you you can't dance anymore. You could get hurt dancing.
Jasmine: That's not the same. Let's just talk about it later.
Kristina: Hey bud, what cha doin'?
Kristina: The trash?
Max: That's ridiculous. Why would I study the trash? I'm studying Dylan.
