Quote from Adam

Adam: Come on. Put yourself in my shoes. Think back to when you were a kid You know, pushing a hoop with a stick on the way to the old fishin' hole.
Murray: How old do you think I am?!


Quote from Adam

Adam: Wow! Wasn't that the most amazing movie you've ever seen?
Dave Kim: Eh, a bunch of kids getting accidentally launched into space? That's asking a lot of the audience.
Adam: It wasn't an accident. A small boy befriends a robot who gets a NASA computer to launch them into orbit. It's based on a true story.
Emmy Mirsky: Yeah, you said the same thing about "Mannequin" and "Weekend at Bernie's."

Quote from Barry

Adam: Did you guys forget and I'm the only decent child in this family?
Barry: Shut your face-mouth! We have a gift. It's a boat. It's two boats. It's not a boat, but it's way cooler and more expensive.
Erica: We just got to go wrap the awesome thing that we bought you months and months ago.
Barry: We got to go to the toilet together.

Quote from Murray

Adam: Ohhh! What is this we happened to stumble upon? It's the Gyrotron 2000, which simulates the tumble-spin upon a rocket's re-entry.
Pops: Kiddo, weren't you just talking about Space Camp? What an amazing coincidence!
Murray: Wait. You said you needed sports shoes for the big athletic game. And now that I hear myself say it, I'm an idiot!

Quote from Murray

Adam: Point is, you were a child once, with hopes and dreams, just like me. We're the same.
Murray: Nope. Never had any dreams.
Adam: Every kid has dreams.
Murray: Mm, I didn't.
Pops: Wait. You've always been like this? I thought life broke you down.
Murray: Eh, even before that, I was like "Myeh."

Quote from Barry

Barry: It's been a minute. We're done. Let me out of your grasp.
Beverly: The coupon says "Spoonies with Mama." It doesn't specify a time limit.
Barry: "One minute" was implied.
Beverly: Well, you should have put that in the terms and restrictions.
Barry: I wrote that when I was 6. The world was still new.

Quote from Erica

Erica: This is too much. Last night, we went to an Italian restaurant, and she made me "Lady and the Tramp" a piece of spaghetti.
Barry: That's nothing. This morning, I gave her a back massage. Her skin sucked up the lotion like a biscuit!
Erica: Yesterday, I held hands with her for an hour as we walked around the park. We looked like a lesbian couple where she makes the money.

Quote from Barry

Barry: You can't do this! I need my Samurai sword and my California Raisins and my dancing cola friend! They're what makes me me!
Beverly: You mean this guy? He dances for me now. Shake it, cola man!

Quote from Murray

Adam: Well, it's about to get a lot better.
Murray: I don't know what that is.
Adam: Stop! I know all about the dummy. Pop-Pop told me everything.
Murray: Fine! The dummy is mine. Are you happy? I got that stupid thing when I was a kid.
Adam: But why does it look like you now?
Murray: Now? That's how I looked.

Quote from Pops

Adam: Come on. Put your hand in your old friend.
Murray: I will not put my hand in my friend.
Adam: Do it! Feel your dream again!
Murray: Why is this happening to me?!
Adam: Put your hand right on in there!
Murray: Stop saying that!
Pops: Murray, what's the big deal? Jam your fist up your old pal. It'll feel nice.

Quote from Murray

Adam: Do you even hear yourself? You're just as bad as Pop-Pop. He crushed all your dreams, and now you're crushing mine.
Murray: I am nothing like him. Have I ever left you hungry? Did you ever have to walk home 5 miles in the rain from school? Have you ever cried yourself to sleep because you didn't know if I was coming home or not?
Adam: Dad, I didn't know that.
Murray: Well, there's a lot you don't know.
