After spending time with Shorty and his girlfriend, Gloria is disappointed when Jay doesn't want to go dancing with them. Cameron bets Mitchell that he could get a woman's phone number at a bar. Meanwhile, Phil builds a tree house for Luke and his pals, but ends up being the one who makes a new friend.

Quote from Luke

Phil: No, don't go! I'm doing this for you!
Luke: Are you, dad? Are you?
[aside to camera:]
Phil: The kid made me think with that one. Who was I really doing this for?
[aside to camera:]
Luke: Sometimes I just say, "Are you, dad? Are you?" because he gets real quiet and doesn't notice when I walk away.


Quote from Jay

Manny: What's up, big guy?
Jay: How hard is it to learn this salsa dancing stuff?
Manny: Not hard at all. It's about tapping into your emotion, your passion, and your inner fire.
Jay: Crap!
[aside to camera:]
Jay: I stink at dancing. First dance at our wedding, Gloria was all graceful and gorgeous, and I was all big and clunky. Like that scene from "Beauty and the Beast." Actually, that was the song. Manny picked it. He didn't like me back then.

Quote from Cameron

Cameron: [aside to camera] If she were a hot guy, I would never have been that smooth. It's ironic. Like the Gift of the Vagi.

Quote from Phil

Luke: Are you sure this is a good idea?
Phil: Are you kidding me? You're gonna have so much fun hanging out up here with your buddies. Trust me, when you get older, it all changes.
Luke: Why?
Phil: Well, life gets in the way. Did I just say "wife gets in the way"? 'Cause sometimes I do that.
Luke: Nope, you're good.

Quote from Cameron

Cameron: Mitchell, remember the girl I met last night?
Mitchell: How can I forget her? She's super famous for having the world's worst gay-dar.
Cameron: How could I be so cavalier with her emotions? You know, we had a real connection. She gave me her number, and right now she's probably sitting by the phone waiting for me to call.
Mitchell: Uh-huh.
Cameron: I don't think you understand how charmed she was by me.
Mitchell: Oh, my God. Where did you get all this self-confidence?
Cameron: I won cutest baby at the 1974 Jasper county fair. People at the time said I could go Gerber.

Quote from Cameron

Cameron: Well, I just couldn't do it on the phone. She seemed so excited to hear from me, and I'm very bad at disappointing people, Mitchell.
Mitchell: Not all people.
Cameron: Mama was right when she said my charm was like a wild stallion. If not properly bridled, it'll bust down a barn.
Mitchell: Okay, you wanna get rid of your girlfriend? Tell her that story.

Quote from Cameron

Mitchell: How's it going? Hello.
Cameron: This is Katie, and, uh, it turns out, well-
Katie: No, actually. It doesn't turn out well. Because I thought I finally met a nice, funny guy, who is also hot! And now he's telling me he's gay?! He's, like, the least gay person I have ever met in my entire life! And I thought he was the one! And I even told my mom about him! You better cherish him! [kisses Cameron]
Mitchell: Hello. Wow.
Katie: Are you sure you're gay?
Cameron: No.
Mitchell: Cam.
Cameron: Yes. Look, you're gonna find somebody, because you're an amazing girl, Katie. You're the whole package. I just prefer somebody who has one.

Quote from Mitchell

[aside to camera:]
Jay: I'm dead set against drugs. "Just Say No!" and all that stuff. But I thought, just this once for Gloria. And if I was gonna make a complete ass of myself, I didn't wanna remember it.
[aside to camera:]
Mitchell: The big drug I gave him: baby aspirin. Orange-flavored. He could have chewed it.

Quote from Haley

Haley: Hey, mom. I'm trying to write a stupid college essay question and I really don't even know where to start.
Claire: OK, what's the question? Tell me.
Haley: "What's the biggest obstacle you ever had to overcome?" Didn't my 3rd Grade teacher said I had like ADD or something?
Claire: Oh, no honey. She said you couldn't A-D-D. She put it that way because she also knew you couldn't S-P-E-L-L.
Haley: Wait, slow down. Oh!

Quote from Phil

Claire: I don't remember agreeing to this, Phil. This is like the time you backed down the driveway with a hang glider sticking out of the car.
Phil: If you'd let me keep that, those geese would have followed me to the wetlands.
Gloria: You would have died.
Phil: A hero.
