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.

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.

Quote from Beverly

Erica: There's a whole world outside of this house. Don't you want to make it a better place for your children and grandchildren?
Beverly: Oh, you're gonna give me grandbabies. Oh. You're not pregnant now?

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Nancy is just like me. She calls all the shots, she loves kids, she hates crack rock. She even has her own anti-drug campaign, "Just Say No".

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: I think I'm gonna go down to the local campaign office and start handing out "Just Say No" t-shirts. I can not thank you enough for opening my eyes to this, Erica. I hate drugs so f$#[email protected]*& much. But I love you.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Look at me, boopi. I'm all political.

Quote from Barry

Barry: I know I don't say this enough, but you really are a good brother.
Adam: You really don't need to thank me.
Barry: That's why I decided to get you a little something. Here. That's the first day we ever met. Mom & Dad said they were bringing me a gift back from the hospital. And it turned out to be you. You were the greatest gift I ever got.
Adam: Ohhhh ... that's too nice for the circumstances.

Quote from Barry

Barry: I will murder your face!

Quote from Barry

Barry: But beating you up is our thing.
Adam: How is violence upon me our thing?
Barry: That's how we bond. What else am I supposed to do? Give you a hug?
Adam: Yes! A hug would be nice. A hug would feel good on my body.
Barry: Nipple cripples are my way of showing you love, okay. It's how I hug you, but after this I'm never beating you up again.
Adam: Oh, you don't mean that. Give me a nipple cripple.
Barry: No. You'll never feel the painful sting of my touch again. Now leave my room quietly and safely. And please watch your fingers.

Quote from Adam

Adam: But you need to know how I feel about you. You're the gift. I could have ended up with any brother in the world, but mine is loud and tough and emotionally unstable. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
