Cameron: Just keep practicing.
Mitchell: Hey, Cam, I-I'm so sorry that I insulted you earlier. I thought that there was something going
on at work, and, ugh, obviously, I was wrong.
Cameron: Well, you're wrong again. It is about work.
Mitchell: This is a fun game.
Cameron: I didn't bring it up before because I was embarrassed. But yesterday was the best day I've
had at work yet. I clicked with the students, the teachers. I finally felt like I belonged.
Mitchell: I get it.
Cameron: You couldn't possibly get it. I'm in the middle of my story.
Mitchell: I'm sorry.
Cameron: Every day at 2:30, I call Lily, and we dunk a cookie together. And yesterday… I forgot. Forgot
my own daughter. And obviously, she resents me for it. It's why she asked you to marry her, to get back

Mitchell: Maybe you're just trying too hard.
Gloria: Everybody, come in! Manny's coming… [grunts] down. Somebody pick up that towel before
Cameron: Okay. I got it.
Cameron: Okay! Daddy's coming! What's wrong with me?!
Gloria: Okay, everybody. So… we sing, then presents, then cake. That's a Colombian tradition. And we
do not speak of what happened before. Nobody saw anything. That's another Colombian tradition.

Manny: So far, 14's not my favorite age.
Gloria: No, it's nothing! Keep singing! Keep singing! Ha… Ay! Stop it!
Jay: We're gonna pop on over to the hospital. Pizza's on the way. You think about it, run a mop over this

Gloria: Don't listen to him. I'm not letting this baby out before midnight. This is your day. I'm not gonna
let you share it every year, okay?
Manny: Mom, look. Yeah, I've felt a little neglected lately, but I've had you to myself for 14 years.

Alex: Hi. I'm disgusted.
Cameron: Mitchell, she won't even look at me.
Mitchell: Well, she can't really look at anyone.
Nurse: Oh! Look who's back… Again. What happened this time?
Lily: He threw me in the pool.
Mitchell: Uh… oh, no. No, that's not what happened.
Luke: It kind of is.
Mitchell: Luke, come on. We don't need to relive it.
Cameron: Oh, look at this. [on camera] "I'm coming! Daddy's coming! What's wrong with me?!"
Mitchell. When she fell in the pool, she screamed for Daddy. She calls you "Dad." She calls me
"Daddy." She got scared, and she called out for me.
Cameron: I guess Daddy was worrying about nothing. But, you know, I can be silly sometimes.
Lily: You're always silly.
Cameron: No, you're silly.
Lily: No, you're always silly.

Gloria: I don't know yet, but I know that babies make mothers crazy. And I'm going to be making
mistakes, and the I'm going to be blaming you. Please don't leave me.
Jay: You're a little emotional right now.
Gloria: But it's been so long for me, and a hundred years for you. Are we still going to be good at this?
Jay: It's gonna be an adventure, but that's what you and I do best. Look at today. I can't ever remember
having more fun with you.
Gloria: I'm so lucky. Now get out.
Jay: But I thought you wanted me to…
Gloria: No, not you. [screeching] Get out!
Kenny: Hey. Let's go.
Haley: Oh, right. Um… Hey, guys? So Kenny and I were thinking about going to this restaurant.
Claire: Oh, sure. I don't have a problem with that. Do you, Phil?
Claire: In fact, it has been such a pleasure getting to know Kenny, it's our treat.
Haley: Are you kidding?
Claire: Give them your credit card, Phil.
Haley: Also, uh, this restaurant is pretty far away, so we might be out late.
Claire: Well, sweetheart, you are only young once.
Haley: Oh, might even make sense to just stay in a hotel.

that dwarf planets further from the sun than Neptune could also be called plutoids. 冥王星(太阳系第二大矮行星，

Haley: Oh, which you guys never let me forget, especially Dad.
