Claire Quote #343
Claire: By the way, we couldn't get the powder room fixtures you wanted.
Cameron: What? Why?
Claire: Well, they're 23%, or $982, over the budget. Keeping in mind, that space is only 12% of 1,462 square feet.
[aside to camera:]
Claire: Whenever I need to rein in Cam's spending, I employ something that I like to call "the number dump."
Claire: So unless you wanna cut 16%, or $1,764 from somewhere in the flooring budget, we've gotta find another 4% overall.
Cameron: Yeah. No, as long as they're pretty, it's fine. It's fine.
[aside to camera:]
Claire: Yesterday, I accidentally said "eleventy-five."
Quote from Gloria
Gloria: [speaking Spanish to Joe]
Jay: Careful. Keep that up, he'll have to hit "numero dos" when he calls the DMV.
Gloria: By the time he's old enough to call, it will be "numero uno."
Quote from Cameron
[aside to camera, together:]
Claire: For the last few months, Cam and I have been redoing a house together that we're gonna flip, and I have to say, it has been goin' great!
Cameron: We make an amazing team.
Claire: Yeah. The key is trust.
[aside to camera, separately:]
Cameron: The key is, I let Claire think she's in charge. I hide what I want in something bigger and more expensive. Then when she rejects that, we "compromise" on what I wanted all along. I call my method "the Trojan horse." You know how I got Lily? I asked Mitchell for triplets.
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.
