Quote from Manny
Jay: Stay focused, stay loose, and stay angry. Who's the toughest?
Manny: I am!
Gloria: Who's the bravest?!
Manny: I am.
Jay: Who's the baddest?
Manny: Can you guys ask all the questions now so I don't have to keep lifting this?
Quote from Gloria
Gloria: Is she your little girl?
Denise: Oh, Caroline? No. No. Sadly, her parents passed away. I'm her nurse down at the children's hospital. But all of my patients are like family to me.
Quote from Jay
Denise: She's our little miracle. I only wish her father had made it back from Afghanistan to see this. Oh! There's our cheering section! Over here, you guys!
Gloria: [to Jay] Oh, my god, we have to stop him. [signal to Manny]
Jay: Maybe I can pull the fire alarm.
Quote from Mitchell
Claire: Actually always felt very guilty for quitting. Look, I know how much you loved figure skating.
Mitchell: I never really loved skating.
Claire: Uh, what?
Mitchell: Um, all right. This is gonna sound a little gay. But, um, when- When you and I skated together, you know, you weren't the mean older sister and I wasn't the- the clingy little brother. We were- We were a team.
And, well, let's face it, we've kind of grown apart in the past few years. And- And with mom and dad's divorce, we were on opposing sides, and I just- I- I just- I miss being on your team. That's...
Claire: A little gay.
Quote from Jay
Jay: Let's get out of here. Let's get this thing in the trunk. I can't decide if I'm feeling more proud or mortified.
Gloria: [seeing Claire and Mitchell] How about now?
