Quote from Up All Night

Javier: Hey, Jay. Listen, I'm sorry. Did I wake you up?
Jay: No. No, I'm a light sleeper. That's what happens when you get older.
Javier: Oh, you're not old.
Jay: I didn't say I was old.
Javier: I never sleep much anyway. Life is just more interesting after 2:00 a.m. You know, the liquor tastes better, the, uh, women are more beautiful. What is it they say? That the night belongs to the poets and the madmen.
Jay: Which are you?
Javier: Perhaps both.

Quote from Lifetime Supply

Manny: Would you bet $2 on that one for me, Jay?
Jay: Sure, but you are throwing your money away.
Javier: You both are. The winner of the race will be number seven, My Hometown.
Jay: Number seven. Well, he's carrying 3 extra pounds, and he hates the distance.
Javier: Those are just words on a page. I look the horse in the eye, and he tells me he is the winner.
Jay: Tells ya?
Javier: Perhaps this will sound crazy.
Jay: No need for the qualifier.
Javier: But I have always been able to see into the soul of a horse. It is a gift, and I do not question it. Just like I always end up on the shortest line at the bank.

Claire: The body is upstairs watching basketball.

Quote from The Graduates

Javier: Think of it, tomorrow, I will watch you stride across the stage with a sash, like a rebel's bandolier, telling the world "No absents, no tardies."

Quote from Up All Night

Quote from Up All Night

Javier: I see a picture over here of you on a motorcycle. You ride?
Jay: I used to.
Javier: Used to? Used to? Jay, the saddest words in any language, my friend.
Jay: Yeah. Hey, help me out here. Everybody sees you as this great guy. You know, you live this life of adventure. How come I don't buy a word of it? All I see is a dad who doesn't show up.
Javier: Hey, Manny knows me. I live in the now.
Jay: Well, I was living in the yesterday when Manny was crying outside that door 'cause you didn't show up for the 10th time.
Javier: And when I don't come, you think, uh- What, I'm just off chasing a good time, hmm? You ever think it might be hard for me, coming here?
Jay: Why? Because of Gloria?
Javier: Because of you.

Quote from Flip Flop

Gloria: So how did you two meet?

Manny: He means her.
Trish: May I tell you, you have a wonderful boy? So well-mannered and chivalrous. It's like he leapt off the canvas of a 16th century portrait by Gainsborough or van Dyke.
Javier: Listen to that brain.

Quote from Flip Flop

Javier: Now what I see is a man who is not man. He is a servant who has lost his dignity. It is a commentary on the class system in society. As well as a handy place to put your keys and sunglasses.
Gloria: Whatever he is, your Barkley is going back to the attic.

Quote from Flip Flop

Javier: Now listen, my love. This belonged to my abuela.

Trish: I can't do this.
Javier: No, no. I'll just push a little harder.
Trish: Javier, stop. It'll never work.
Javier: But wait, my love. We can put butter on your finger.
