my pants off. Found that one out a little late.

Phil: I've been there, buddy.

Claire: Mwah!

Dr. Klausner: Well, Luke's a terrific kid. I have a few thoughts, but, honestly, I don't see anything that's
cause for alarm.

exercises or something?

Dr. Klausner: Mrs. Dunphy, what exactly are you worried about?

Phil: Get comfortable.

Claire: I'm worried he's turning into you, Phil.


Claire: I knew the minute I opened my mouth that I was in the wrong, but, honestly, sometimes I wonder
about him.


Luke: Hey, Mom, check it out.

Claire: What are you doing?

Luke: If I move my head fast enough, it looks like the can is standing still.

Cameron: Oh, well, there's your esteem-building parent right there. Wait, wait, I think I hear future Lily
sending us a message from her stripper pole
 "Thanks, gay dead Dads. This dance is for you." Excuse
me, Jay?

Manny: I'm getting down.

Jay: Not till you touch the top! What is it?

walk again.

Claire: Honey, you know, sometimes you can act a little bit

Phil: Oh, no! Where did everyone go?! Oh, just a blink.

Claire: Phil, when you are ready to talk to me like an adult, why don't you let me know?

Phil: Fine. Okay, okay. The adults are the big ones, right?

[engines turns over] [tires screech]

great guardian for Lily.

Gabby: Why does she keep saying that?

Haley: Because they're the first words she ever heard.

Gabby: Here, you go first.

Haley: This will teach that skank a lesson.

Alex: Shaving cream in her locker?

Haley: Just stand over there and yell if someone's coming.

Alex: She might have homework assignments in there she hasn't handed in yet. [sighs] Haley! [door closes] Someone's coming!

Haley: Run! [sighs] [whispering frantically] This way, this way!

Alex: Okay, okay, okay! Where are we?

Haley: Boys' locker room.

Alex: It smells like feet.

Haley: That's not feet. Okay. Come here.
