This Is Us Season 4 Episode 3 Quotes

Teacher: This your first year too?
Randall: No, my third.
Teacher: Then you know better than to wear those shoes. I'll have to give you a yellow slip for not following the dress code.
Randall: But they're Air Jordans, like Michael Jordan wears.
Teacher: Michael Jordan doesn't have to abide by a dress code.. If you're gonna be in a place like this, you gotta dress the part.

The things that happened, you can't go back from. They make you less human.
