Quote from Phil
Phil: [aside to camera] The art of the sale is all about what you leave out. "'83 classic wagon" Tough to find parts. "They don't make 'em like this anymore" For legal reasons. "Enjoyed for many years by one happy family" Of raccoons. I'm kidding. Actually... Actually, it did make us happy for a long time. It's gonna be tough to say good-bye. It always is. Nobody loves change. But part of life is learning to let things go.
Quote from Haley
Haley: How about when Dad jumped on the hood of the car?
Kids: "What's the plan, Phil?"
Quote from Cameron
Cameron: Need me to get you out of there?
Mitchell: This thing is not safe, Cam.
Cameron: Move to the back of the castle.
Mitchell: Yeah. No. I know the drill. Don't carry me out this time. I think it sends the wrong message to Lily.
Cameron: Well, the neighbors enjoy it.
