Manny Quote #143
Manny: [aside to camera] Jay is always telling me to "Write this down." I don't always catch everything he says. "Something, something, firm handshake." "Never take the first room they show you." Not sure who "they" is. And this one just says "Pancakes."
Quote from Cameron
Gloria: Ay, Cam, thank you for helping me.
Cameron: Oh, it's my pleasure. [calling] Stella! Stella! Oh, my god.
Gloria: What? Do you see her?
Cameron: No. But I see myself in the role I was born to play. [shouting] Stella! Stella! [answering phone] Hello? Oh, Mitchell, you are not gonna believe this. I'm out helping Gloria look for her dog. I'm wearing an undershirt and I'm screaming "Stella," just like in "Streetcar."
Mitchell: You didn't clean the kitchen.
Cameron: Mitchell, I am an inadvertent Stanley Kowalski. How can you not be delighted by this?
Quote from Phil
Phil: [aside to camera] I've always said that if my son thinks of me as one of his idiot friends, then I've succeeded as a dad. If he wants to go the wrong way on the escalator, I'm on board.

Quote from Larry's Wife
Jay: It's a movie. New York, '70s, Charles Bronson's a firm family man, and he-
Manny: Who's pushed to the limit until one day he decides to fight back.
Jay: You've seen it?
Manny: It's called "Death Wish." I doubt it ends with him trading banter in an apartment with Marsha Mason.
Quote from Patriot Games
Manny: But you also shouldn't worry about what Dad thinks. I think you should become a citizen because even back when we were alone in our apartment this is what you always wanted.
Gloria: Remember sitting by the window, watching reruns of Miami Vice on the neighbor's TV and all the bad guys were caught and all the policemen had all those nice cars?
Manny: We used to watch that and think what an amazing country this was.
[aside to camera:]
Manny: Did a little research. If Mom isn't a citizen when Jay "moves on to a better place", we could be looking at a pretty hefty estate tax. I don't wanna sound insensitive but I have acquired a real taste for truffles.
