Cameron: Okay, this place is cozy, right?

Mitchell: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Cameron: It's fine.

Pepper Saltzman: It's… oh, it's going to be fine.

Alex: Haley, I hope you know what you're doing.

Haley: I'm not doing anything.

Alex: I mean, it's one thing if you're actually into him, but if you're just playing around with him

Phil: Hey.

Claire: I don't mean to rush you, but there's like 80 people waiting to get in here.

Phil: No, no, no. I'm so glad you're here. I just worked up a new magic trick.

Claire: Hmm.

Phil: So when I raise my arms… Really? You're not gonna say, "Don't do that"?

Phil: Oh, honey. Oh, God, let me get that. Honey! No! Honey, no! Hey!

Claire: Phil!

Phil: Oh, no!

Claire: No, no, water's on! Water's on!

Phil: No!

Claire: You…

Phil and Claire: Just a minute!


Haley: Hey, Andy.

Andy: Hey. Has the wedding started yet?

Haley: Oh, yeah, lots of times. What's up?

in general, right? You weren't thinking of anyone in particular?
in general: 通常,大体上,一般而言,总的来说

Haley: Yeah, no, I-I just meant you deserve to be happy. And if it's this girl, great. If not, great. Um,

Haley: Thanks. Have a nice trip.

Andy: Yeah. I'll see you.


Manny: I'm so glad we did this.

Luke: I know. Who were we kidding? It was so gonna happen.

Alex: I can't get enough of this.


Jay: No, Mitch is fine. Still mad at me, though. You know how touchy he can be, Dede. Remember
when we tried to cheer him up after his first ice-skating competition? How were we supposed to
third place is a good thing? Remember he tromped off across that muddy field in his skates?
sunk like a woolly mammoth. Hey, Dede, if you're around the 4th of July, you should come by

she's a flower teenager. Oh, so sad.

Claire: Sorry.

Mitchell: What is…

Claire: Yeah. Like I'm the problem.

Mitchell: No, no, I don't. Let's just… come on. Let's just do this.

Cameron: Mitchell. Is this really how you want to get married?

Mitchell: Well, it's not ideal. No, people don't have any rice to throw because they're chewing it raw

It means a lot to us. But unfortunately, this is not gon…

Jay: Stop. You can't do this.

Mitchell: Yeah, I'm way ahead of you, Dad, and thank you for stopping by.

Jay: What I mean is, you can't get married like this. You two deserve the kind of wedding you've been
talking about nonstop for the last nine months.

Mitchell: What do you mean?

Jay: You bring it up every chance that you get.

Mitchell: I know what nonstop means!

Jay: Trust me, okay? Now, what are we all standing around for? My son's getting married today.

Pepper Saltzman: Go on, dear. How often do your fathers get married?

Lily: So far, one, two…

Pepper Saltzman: Why am I still seeing you?

Mitchell: You can take your seat, Dad. We're about to start.

Jay: Actually, I thought you and I would take a little walk.

best friend. I was his first partner. And I loved every minute of it.
inseparable [ɪnˈseprəbl]: If you say that two people are inseparable, you are emphasizing that they are very
good friends and spend a lot of time together. 形影不离的


Phil: Thank you all for being here on this happy occasion. They say the best marriages contain
just a little bit of magic. Believe me. I know. We're gathered here today to join two amazing people.

I met this Cam. And sure, he was warm and funny and loving.
picky [ˈpɪki]: (of a person) liking only particular things and difficult to please 过分讲究的;好挑剔的;吹毛求疵的


Phil: Cameron, do you take Mitchell to be your husband?

Cameron: I do.

Phil: Cameron, would you please place this ring on Mitchell's finger? Mitchell, do you take Cameron
to be your husband?

Mitchell: I do.

Phil: Then by the powers vested in me by the state of California, I am privileged to pronounce you
spouses for life. You may now kiss your husband.

Claire: I wondered, "Was he really everything I wanted for my brother? "Was he really the best person?"
No, I'm the best person. And now I am very pleased to raise a glass and introduce for the first time ever…
On our fourth try… great husbands, Mitch and Cam.

All: Yes!


Luke: I saw that.

Manny: What?

Luke: The way you look at my sister. You do it all the time, you know.

Manny: I do not.

Luke: Just not in front of me, okay?

Alex: So, have you heard from your Dads on their honeymoon? You must really miss them, don't you?

Luke: Sorry. I was being dramatic.

Manny: No, you were right.

Luke: You'll hate yourself.

Manny: Right again.

Lily: It's like they never left.
