Mitchell: "Y'all"? We don't say "y'all"!

Cameron: Yeah, we do.

Mitchell: No, well, yeah, we say it… here, but not normally.

Cameron: Well, did you ever think this is how I really talk and that I talk different-like when I'm not here? 

Lily: Y'all fighting? 

Cameron: No, no, sweetie, we're just having a conversation about how your Daddy can be so stuck-up.

Mitchell: Cam, that's really mature. Use our daughter to get your little digs in. I would never do that,
dig: a remark that is intended to annoy or upset somebody 讽刺;挖苦

Cameron: You don't think I notice how condescending you are when we come here? You just set on
the porch. You roll your eyes. You don't participate in anything. And, yeah, I said "set." But that's how
we talk here. I'm from this place. I'm proud of this place. And it hurts me that the man I love just thinks
it's some big joke. Come on, sweetie.

Lily: Lord a'mercy. 
Lord a'mercy: 仁慈的上帝

she dropped her off so fast that we didn't even have a chance to straighten up.

that up to you.

my screen or –

stairs. That elevator is slow.

Jay: Hey, was it just me, or was she looking at me weird?

Rita: I did kind of sense that.

Jay: You don't think she knows about our deal? 

Rita: How could she? It was 20 years ago. And I never told anyone. Would she even care? 

Jay: That I tried to get rid of the man she ended up marrying? 

Rita: Well, it's not like you took a hit out on him. You had me offer him a job in the greatest state in the
Union: the US (used especially at the time of the Civil War) 美国

Cameron: Lil-y-y-y-y-y!

Mitchell: Okay, this is just a farm thing, not, like, a mall thing.

Cameron: What's that, city voice? Hmm?
