Claire Quote #94

Quote from Claire in The Old Wagon

Claire: Honey, why do we keep this car?
Phil: It's a classic.
Claire: No, it just sits here. And the seat belts don't work, the doors stick, it leaks fluids. We haven't put fluids in it in 10 years.
Phil: Well, I'm gonna fix all that. You wait. And then, uh, it's gonna be Haley's car.
Claire: Oh, we're not giving this car to Haley. It's way too easy to fit a mattress in the back.
Phil: Remember?
Claire: Oh, no. We're selling it.


 ‘The Old Wagon’ Quotes

Quote from Mitchell

Mitchell: [aside to camera] My great-great-grandfather helped build the Brooklyn Bridge. I heard that until the day he died, every time he passed it he was filled with such pride. He'd say, "There's a little bit of me in that bridge." I know that I'm not the handiest guy, but I'm still a man. And I want to be able to look out into my yard and say "There's a little bit of me in that princess castle."

Quote from Jay

Mitchell: Oh, remember how much fun we had when we built that bookshelf together?
[aside to camera:]
Jay: That was my Vietnam. And I was in Vietnam.

Quote from The Closet Case

Claire: [aside to camera] That was the moment I realized Phil wanted me to kick Dylan out so he could be the cool one. Well, I can be cool, too. I'm cooler than cool. I'm frigid.

Quote from Pilot

Claire: [aside to camera] I was out of control growing up. There, you know, I said it. I just don't want my kids to make the same bad mistakes I made. If Hayley never wakes up on a beach in Florida, half-naked I've done my job.
Phil: Our job.
Claire: Right. I've done our job.
