The Goldbergs: Just Say No

220. Just Say No

Aired April 15, 2015

During the presidential election campaign, Erica clashes with Murray when she supports Walter Mondale. When Erica learns Beverly just follows Murray's lead when voting, Erica tries to get her mother interested in politics, but her plan goes awry when Beverly starts campaigning for Reagan. Meanwhile, after he is embarrassed in a clash with a rival posse from another town, Barry tries to prove his strength by auditioning for American Gladiators.

Quote from Erica

Erica: Everything you're saying is wrong. There's only one choice and it's Mondale.

Rate

Quote from Barry

Barry: There's only one logical thing to do. I will become nationally known as television's greatest warrior and that parking lot will be mine.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Schmoo, there is a woman who's gonna change the course of our nation, and I need to get behind her.
Beverly: Geraldine Ferraro?
Beverly: Nancy Reagan!
Erica: Say what?
Beverly: I mean she is a real spitfire with a killer fashion sense. You know, not everyone can pull off a red skirt-suit like us.

Quote from Beverly

Erica: My God! What horrible thing is happening in my house right now?
Beverly: Something glorious. Your mother is going to single-handedly get The Gipper re-elected.
Erica: You can't get Reagan re-elected just to spite me.
Beverly: Oh, I can and I will. I will change the course of history just to show you how clue-ful I am.

Quote from Beverly

Erica: So you'd change this country into a nightmare-ish Hell-scape just to prove a point?
Beverly: Oh yes. But it will be a magical land where President Reagan gives every American free Jelly Beans. A world where sons just say no to drugs, and daughters say yes to respecting their mothers.

Quote from Pops

Adam: Oh, thank God. How did it go at the post office? Did you seduce the mail lady with your charms?
Pops: She was built like a steamer trunk. I'm not going out that way, kid.

Quote from Barry

Barry: I am emotionally unstable!

Quote from Beverly

Erica: Mom, you can't just blindly follow what dad says.
Beverly: Your father makes me a little cheat sheet. What do you call it, Mur?
Murray: Murray's picks.
Beverly: Murray's picks.

Quote from Barry

Adam: What are you watching?
Barry: American Gladiators. It mixes show-biz, patriotism and spandex for a trifecta of viewing pleasure.

Quote from Barry

Adam: Why?
Barry: You've been gladiated.
Adam: That's not even a word!

Quote from Barry

Barry: If you don't help me, it'll get a lot worse. Mark my words. There will be no butt unwedgied, no willie unwetted, and no nurple unpurple. It will be a twenty-four hour a day, full body beatdown.

Quote from Adam

Barry: Time to get pumped! Celebratory butt hat.
Adam: No, this is not a celebration.

Quote from Murray

Murray: That nerd can't compete with Reagan. Reagan likes Jelly Beans. He's got the hair of a Greek God. What's not to like?

Quote from Murray

Erica: Well, I care about the issues.
Murray: There's only one issue that matters in this race, and that's taxes. Mondale specifically said he would raise them.
Erica: That's all you care about? Taxes?
Murray: Yes! Why do you think we had Adam? He was a write-off.

Quote from Beverly

Erica: Mom, we're talking about important issues right now. Who are gonna vote for?
Beverly: Murray, who am I going to vote for?
Murray: Reagan.
Beverly: Reagan.
