Season 1, Episode 22 -  Aired May 6, 2014

When Barry is offered a place on the varsity wrestling team, Murray and Pops know that safety-crazed Beverly would never let her snuggle monster take part. With their help, Barry lies to his mother about joining the school play. Meanwhile, Adam is excited by the upcoming premiere of Star Wars Return of the Jedi, but he needs somebody to camp out in line with him. Adam blackmails Erica with an embarrassing video from her days as Star Wars fan. When Erica leaves the lines to hang out with her friends, Adam's hopes of seeing the premiere are dashed.

Barry: I'm joining the wrestling team.
Murray: What? Really?
Barry: So you'll let me wrestle?
Murray: Of course. You know, your old man was quite the grappler back in high school. I bet that's the reason you're doing it.
Barry: Not at all.
Murray: Tiny bit?
Barry: No.
Murray: Maybe a little?
Barry: No.
Murray: Not even this much?
Barry: I'm doing it for the ladies.

Quote from Murray

Barry: I joined the wrestling team.
Beverly: What?! Yeah, no. Never. Evelyn Sanderson's son joined a wrestling team. He put one foot-
Murray: No. No need to tell us that very tragic tale. Save it for another time.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Barry Norman Goldberg, look at me. Are you on the wrestling team?
Barry: Uhh, no?
Beverly: Oh, really? Because I was just down at the school theater building an orphanage for a show that apparently you're not even in.
Pops: What? You promised you weren't going down there.
Beverly: I have a problem!

Quote from Barry

Beverly: You have no right to be mad at me. No right! You're the one who lied and directly defied my orders. True story.
Barry: Oh, here we go!
Beverly: Susie Goodman's son defied her at one point-
Barry: I don't care! How do you know so many sad people?!

Quote from Barry

Barry: Wait! I got the perfect cover We'll tell mom I joined the army.
Murray: That's what you're going to tell your mother you're going into combat?!
Barry: Not combat! I could be one of those dudes who flies a helicopter and drops in bags of rice.
Murray: So now you're flying a helicopter?
Barry: Think I can't?
Murray: No!
Barry: I'm tired of you not believing in me. I'm a good driver. Flying is just like driving, but in 3D!
Murray: I don't even know what that means.

Quote from Barry

Lexy: Um, it's been like five minutes. I can live without the Zagnut.
Barry: Not on my watch. You wanted nuts all zagged up in hot fudge, cookie dough, honey, and peppermint dust?
Lexy: None of those things are in that bar.
Barry: Barry's gonna get it for you.
Lexy: Who's Barry?
Barry: I'm Barry! How do you not know this by now? Wait, come back! I can do it!

Quote from Adam

Adam: Here's how this is gonna go. You're either gonna come to the movie with me, or this tape magically ends up playing at your next school assembly.
Erica: I hate you.
Adam: We're gonna have so much fun.

Quote from Barry

Murray: You do understand it's not that kind of wrestling?
Barry: What?
Murray: That stuff's not real.
Barry: What are you saying?
Murray: None of it's real.
Barry: If you're telling me the Iron Sheik isn't fighting to protect his oil interests in this country, then my world will literally cave in.

Quote from Murray

Barry: You seriously want me to lie to mom?
Murray: Yes! You really think your mother would willingly let you fight another man with your bare hands?
