Adam's delight at getting into NYU quickly gives way to worries over his relationship with Brea. Meanwhile, Beverly wants to join Virginia's tennis club.

Quote from Murray

Beverly: You are not gonna believe this.
Murray: Then it's best to keep it to yourself.
Beverly: Jane Bales didn't blackball me... Ginzy did. She says she needs a place where she can hide. Well, who does that rotten cantaloupe think she is? [gasps]
Murray: You're gonna get this. I feel it.
Beverly: Murray, have I become an insult comic?
Murray: Hey, there's no one your friends want in their corner more than you, but you... You do give them the business quite often.
Beverly: But that's who we Goldbergs are. We're business-giving people.
Murray: Sure, but the blonde neighbor lady may have a point.


Quote from Barry

Barry: Hey. [knocks] Still playing with those Cabbage Trash Friends?
Adam: Garbage Pail Kids. They're the only thing in my life that's still in mint condition.
Barry: Tell Barry your woes.
Adam: You were right. Brea and I won't be able to make it work next year. Come fall, she'll be doing body shots off lacrosse bros.
Barry: Ah, don't be stupid. They'll be doing shots off of her.
Adam: Oh! Not helping! I wish she'd just let me follow her.
Barry: [scoffs] And not go to NYU? You can't do that.
Adam: I know. But if I go, I'll lose her.
Barry: Maybe. Maybe not. You know, long distance is hard, but that doesn't mean it can't work.
Adam: I wish I just knew for sure.
Barry: There's only one thing certain here, you can't get in the way of each other's dreams. Okay?
Adam: Thanks, Barry. I know what I need to do.

Quote from Adam

Adam: Tony's Italian.
Brea: What?
Adam: It's an amazing pizza shop in Providence, some say even better than New York.
Brea: Lemme guess... you got a job there?
Adam: No, I'll be going to NYU. But when I visit, we can grab a slice.
Brea: So you're okay with all this?
Adam: I'm not saying it's gonna be easy, but we'll figure it out together.

Quote from Barry

Erica: Well, looks like Geoff is spending an extra couple days in Miami with your grandma.
Barry: Uh-oh.
Joanne: You poor thing.
Erica: What are you two dopes saying?
Joanne: [imitates dialling phone] Boop-boop-boop-boop boop-boop-boop.
Barry: Hello? It's Miami Jefe.
Joanne: "Jefe"? You changed your name?
Barry: I changed a lot of things. I live on a cigarette boat now with Dan Marino and a sassy alligator.
Joanne: [scoffs] Well, I'm just in my parents' basement with my stupid bangs.
Erica: Hey.
Barry: I'm leaving you to party with Daisy Fuentes in Little Havana.
Joanne: [sobs] Bye.
Barry: Click! [Barry and Joanne high-five and slap each other]
Erica: Hey, you know what? Let me get in on that, actually. [slaps Barry]
Barry: What?
