Emmett: Can you find someone else on the planet to be your girlfriend besides my ex girlfriend?
Travis: You can't have a claim on her forever.

How is this going to work? How am I going to date a guy my parents hate?


Tank we both made mistakes, it doesn't mean our lives are over.


Kathryn: How were we supposed to know? It's not like we run background checks on all her boyfriends.
John: Well, we have to start.

Do you think it's OK that I brought wine? I didn't want to come empty handed, but I don't want your parents to think I'm a booze hound or something.


Travis: Hey. Can we talk?
Bay: I don't know if I can. I'm too weak and vulnerable to speak for myself.
Travis: I shouldn't have freaked out like that. I know you don't need protecting. I just hate seeing people make judgements about you because of what happened with Tank.
Bay: I hate it too, but I'm dealing with it.
Travis: Good. I just... I get what you're going through.
Bay: No you don't. Everyone thinks they get it, but they don't.
Travis: I do.
Bay: What do you mean?
Travis: Something happened to me. It was a family friend. A long time ago.
Bay: Travis. I'm so sorry.
Travis: It happens to a lot of deaf kids. He thought I wouldn't tell anyone. And I didn't.
Bay: How old were you?
Travis: Twelve. They were visiting for Christmas.
Bay: And you never told Mary Beth?
Travis: [shaking his head no] I didn't know what she would think of me. And when it happened to you, it brought up some stuff I hadn't thought about in a long time.
Bay: I'm really glad you told me.
Travis: Me, too.
Bay: And I don't think any differently of you.
Travis: Thanks. [Bay gives him a hug]

Mingo: [after hearing about what's going on with Toby] Wow that's so heavy.
Daphne: Yeah, it's a lot.
Mingo: Happened to my aunt and uncle too, but um, you know.
Daphne: Well that's what most people do these days.
Mingo: Yeah. It makes sense.
Daphne: I don't think that's the obvious thing to do. Is that what you're saying?
Mingo: I am saying, that kid would have a really hard life. I think we can agree on that.
Daphne: No.
Mingo: You're not willing to admit that a family with a down syndrome kid would have a tougher life than other families?
Daphne: I think it requires more adjustments. Maybe even sacrifice, but I am sure that they have as much love and affection and happiness as any other family.
Mingo: OK.
Daphne: Do you think that my life is harder than a hearing person?
Mingo: Well, yeah.
Daphne: But you're wrong, it isn't.
Mingo: You said yourself that's maybe why you got a D in chemistry.
Daphne: I was just having a moment of weakness.
Mingo: Daphne, of course it is harder. I mean you can't hear music.
Daphne: Of course I can, in my own way.
Mingo: You can't go places where it's dark because you have to read lips.
Daphne: So I go where it's light or go with people who can sign.
Mingo: But it's harder.
Daphne: No, it isn't!

Lily: [at Toby's apartment] We need to talk.
Toby: I don't have anything to say. [Lily walks past Toby into his apartment] Made it pretty clear you think you're too good for me.
Lily: I'm pregnant.
Toby: Are you sure?
Lily: Of course I'm sure. Do you think I'm making this up?
Toby: Well, is it mine?
Lily: Yes it's yours.
Toby: How is that such a terrible thing to ask? You said you were into somebody else!
Lily: I said I was confused. I also said that nothing happened with him. I was faithful to you, I was honest with you all along. I didn't do anything wrong.

Lily: I'm pregnant.
Daphne: Are you sure?
Lily: And I don't know how it happened because we're really careful.
Daphne: Is it Toby's?
Lily: Of course.
Daphne: I'm sorry. He told me that you said you had feelings for some other guy.
Lily: Yeah, but nothing happened with him which I told Toby. It was just stupid infatuation which I should have kept to myself and now Toby hates me.
Daphne: Does he know?
Lily: No one knows. I just moved here a year ago. I don't know that many people. My parents are 5000 miles away and would not understand. You can't tell Melody or Bay or anyone.

Regina: So, uh, hun you remember the other day, before we were interrupted, you were saying something about your mom? Did you mean that she's alive in your heart or in heaven? Cause I know how hard it can be when someone you love dies.
Will: I meant she's alive in Georgia, but I'm not supposed to talk about it.
Regina: Are you sure?
Will: She's working at a car shop back where we used to live in Atlanta. Her name is Hope Paxton. I found her on the internet right away, I still haven't emailed her yet. [leaning in and whispering] Paxton is her old last name.
Regina: What do you mean old last name? [Eric comes in and interrupts them]

John: Sounds like you're in love.
Regina: Yeah, I actually told him that for the first time today. And he didn't say it back.
John: Yikes. Well, look, those are big words for a guy, you know.
Regina: But it's not a good sign, right?
John: I hate to say it, but no, probably not.

Mary Beth: I can't do this anymore.
Travis: What do you mean?
Mary Beth: I've worked really hard to be the kind of person who's not needy and insecure, but this relationship is turning me into someone I don't want to be.
Travis: Okay. I'll stop having out with those guys so much.
Mary Beth: You're a Freshman in college. You should be able to hang out with whoever you want. Date whoever you want.
Travis: But I want to date you.
Mary Beth: You're the first person I ever fell in love with. The first person I ever though about a future with. I lost my virginity to you. I learned a new language for you. I will always love you, but this relationship isn't right for me anymore.

Kathryn: I haven't seen one since I was your age. Amityville Horror and it wasn't nearly as scary as the boy I saw it with.
