Quote from Adam

Marv: Oh, my gosh. You're like rain man with this. You're unbeatable. Like, what is your secret?
Adam: I have a small social circle.


Quote from Murray

Murray: What's he up to, Al? Laughing, having fun, supporting Adam It doesn't make any sense.
Pops: Uh, I think he's just laughing and having fun and supporting Adam.
Murray: That's crazy. Nobody does that.

Quote from Murray

Murray: Okay! Now you're aggravating me! Get this off of me! It's stuck on my normal-sized fingers!

Quote from Erica

Erica: Whoa. I slept for 12 hours. You know when you get too much sleep and then you're tired? I might need a nap later.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: I slept for two hours, had a nightmare that I'd abandoned you, and then I woke up and remembered that you'd abandoned me. So, I just came downstairs to start this entire meal by myself like some sort of daughterless mother.

Quote from Barry

Beverly: Please, Erica. I need you. I love Barry, but he ruins everything.
Barry: She's right. I suck.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Everybody, stop leaving me. (Gets up out of her chair) It's Thanks-[bleep]-giving!
Erica: Have you been faking it this whole time?
Beverly: No. It's a Thanksgiving miracle.

Quote from Erica

Erica: Pops, please. I don't want to hear one of your adorable, wise lectures that makes me a better person.

Quote from Erica

Pops: Fine, I won't mix in. But did you ever wonder why this holiday makes your mother so crazy?
Erica: 'Cause she's crazy?
Pops: For sure, but there's a reason why this day means so much to her.
Erica: Because she always made dinner with Nana. I know all about it.
Pops: Well, what you don't know is that your mom was 17 when she lost Nana.
Erica: I didn't realize that.
Pops: That box of recipes, the two of you cooking together, it all brings back your grandmother for her.
Erica: Why you always got to make me a better person?

Quote from Pops

Pops: I know I always drink too many Martinis, and I give a toast about some beautiful dame from my past. But this is for my wife, Irene, the most beautiful dame who ever lived.
