This Is Us Season 6 Episode 8: "Guitar Man" Quotes
Kevin: Dad tried to drown me.
Rebecca: No he didn't.
Kevin: Yes he did!
Rebecca: The last thing your dad wants is for you to drown. He wants you to learn to swim before you dive off the board so that you won't drown. I know it might seem like it's out of order, but he's trying to keep you safe. It's like if you tried to build the roof on one of your Lego houses before you put up any walls. You know, Dad is really good at building things. Character, too. You should listen to him.
Kevin: I'm not like Dad.
Rebecca: Believe me, you're exactly like him.
Kevin: Do you ever feel like you're performing in a movie that no one else can see? Like, you're trying to be the kind of person you're supposed to be, who does what you're supposed to do, instead of just being that. I want to be the kind of man who does the right thing because it's the right thing to do. But how do you know if you are that person? Ever think about that?
Man: I'm just here waiting on my wife.
People like Cassidy don't give you a heads-up when they're not okay. Tonight at dinner, she didn't sit with her back to the door. I've seen that before. I've BEEN that before. This kind of thing, you don't get better. And in case you don't believe me, let me remind you that your father drank in secret to forget. And when you busted into my trailer, I had a gun sitting on the table. And that was 50 years after boots left Vietnam.Nicky
Kevin: I don't belong in the deep end. I belong in the shallow end. Cause I'm shallow and stupid.
Randall: You said it.
Kevin: You belong in the deep end, Randall. Cause you're a brainiac. You too, Kate, if you can ever get out your own way. Me, I don't have what it takes. I'm not solid. The only solid thing I had in my life was Sophie and I blew it.
Kevin: Hey, I just wanted to say I'm sorry for being a dick.
Cassidy: You mean like an hour ago or since I met you?
How do you pour foundation wrong anyway?Kevin
Kate: Are you insane? At least do some trial runs first.
Kevin: I'm taking the kids to the cabin. And it's not like I'll be alone. Uncle Nicky will be there. He's family.
Randall: Nicky? That's your ace in the hole?
Kevin: I want to jump off the diving board and touch the drain.
Jack: Once more for those in the cheap seats, you need to learn to swim first.
