Cameron: Breathing only makes the fire spread.
Gloria: Okay. Then drink this milk. Ay, Cam. Why did you have to order that spicy dish?
Cameron: Because I'm, um, a big idiot… and I wanted to have this awesome night between the two of us
where we end up best friends, uh, having lunch, buying shoes.
Gloria: Okay! Let's go have lunch, let's go buy shoes.
Gloria: Yeah. Why are you so surprised?
Cameron: Well, I don't know. I-I guess I just always feel like I-I blow it with you, Gloria, whether it's the
Columbian comment or picking the wrong restaurant.
blow it: 犯错误；失败；弄坏
Gloria: The restaurant had nothing to do with you. I was just not in the mood to go anywhere that fancy after
the stupid thing I did this morning.
Cameron: What did you do?
Gloria: I bought a dress.
Cameron: You monster.
Gloria: Ay. It was a very expensive dress that I don't need. I felt so stupid that when I got home, I couldn't
even bring it inside the house. I left it in the car.
Cameron: I totally get it. I have a legendary hat story. I'll bet you look fabulous in that dress.
Gloria: Yes, but anyone would look fabulous in that dress.
Jay: You find that blanket?

[chuckling] I mean, smell you.
out of hand: difficult or impossible to control 不受约束；无法控制
Mitchell: [mock laughing] This is a fantastic apology.
Jay: Oh, don't be too hard on the kid. I was egging him on. You're gonna be mad, be mad at me.
Jay: I was just happy to see him laugh a little bit. You know, he's had kind of a tough week.
Mitchell: I got sprayed by a skunk, and I'm wearing a dress that makes my hips look huge.
Jay: I know he doesn't want me to talk about it, but he didn't get invited to this big party. Some kids he
thought were his friends think he's weird. Now, you know me on this. I'm no, I'm no-good at it. You know,
I-I never know what to say.
no-good: (of a person) bad or useless 差的，无用的

Mitchell: [chuckles] Yeah. No, I'll talk to him.
Jay: You know, you don't look that ridiculous. Now, you-you actually got the legs for it.
Jay: No, I'm just saying, if you were that type of a gay--
Jay: You'd probably do all right for yourself.
Mitchell: Come on!
Cameron: You know, I always had a sense it was dangerous down here, but I guess it's actually kind of
charming, isn't it?
Gloria: No, it's not safe at all. [siren wailing in distance] I used to live down here, you know.
Gloria: Yeah, that's why I come down here. Look there. That was my old apartment. After I left Javier, that's
all I could afford. It's still part of me. You have to remember those things, like you when you go to your farm.
Cameron: You remember that? I told you that a year ago.
Gloria: Of course I do. You're my friend, you big idiot. [laughing] You know, this part of town might be very
rough, but the people here, Cameron, the best.
Cameron: I'm pretty sure I had wheels when I parked here.
Gloria: Ayayay! Who did this?

Claire: I-I-I love it. Did you do this?

Phil: Way to go, buddy.
Claire: [clicks tongue] Gotta go finish the cupcakes.
Haley: [chuckling] No. She didn't.
Claire: Sweetie, can you hand me those?
Haley: Uh-huh. Yeah, I can talk. What are you doing?

the eggs in the bowl! Oh, I got some shells in 'em! Uh-oh! Are you serious? [exhales]
Manny: Hey, Mitchell.
Mitchell: So, I know you'd never, um, I know you'd never, never believe this by looking at me right now, but,
um, I used to get picked on at school too.
Manny: So Jay told you?
Mitchell: Yeah. Yeah, they would, um, they'd call me weird. I was weird. Uh, fun weird. But I-- This is the
funny thing about growing up. For years and years, everybody's desperately afraid to be different, you
know, in any way. And then, suddenly, almost overnight, everybody wants to be different, and that is
where we win.
Manny: I'm sort of counting on that.
Manny: I'm sorry I was picking on you too much.
Mitchell: Ah, that's--
Manny: Jay said that's what brothers do.
Mitchell: [chuckles] Well, we don't have to listen to him. Brothers do that too.
Jay: Okay, ladies. Finish up your tea party. You're missing the show.
Mitchell: Can't believe I was fighting over this guy, huh?
Jay: Check it out. Check it out.
Luke: Why did he paint The Starry Night? Maybe because the sky is beautiful, and everybody likes looking

second to liquefy us and use us as fuel. So wake up, people. We're next.

Phil: Oh, my God.
