The Goldbergs: The Adam Bomb

217. The Adam Bomb

Aired April 1, 2015

When Erica considers skipping college in the hopes of making it in the music business, Beverly is worried that Erica is setting herself up for disappointment. Beverly hopes that Murray will be the one to smush Erica's dreams, but he's fed up of always being the bad guy. Meanwhile, an April Fools' prank escalates into a battle between Adam and Barry.

Quote from Barry

Barry: I saw something today that changed me. David Hasselhoff was on the Great Wall of China in a light up jacket singing about freedom. And it occurred to me, if Knightrider can make East and West Russia find common ground, maybe we can too.
Pops: While your facts are wildly off, your spirit is right on the money.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: See, millions of girls wanna be stars, but they end up becoming waitresses or dogwalkers, or music teachers, and that is no life anyone would wish for their little girl. No offense.

Quote from Erica

Erica: I will sing for quarters on the subway. I will sleep on lumpy couches owned by creepy disc-jockeys. Sure, when times get tough, I may have to go cry in a bank vestibule, but then in the end I will be bigger than Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. But not Madonna, because I'm realistic.

Quote from Barry

Adam: Yeah, basketball's not my sport.
Barry: Well, sports aren't your sport. Even my shoe thinks you're a nerd! What was that? Punch your brother in the nards?

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Because I'm the dream pusher and you're the dream smusher. That's how this works.
Murray: This is a thing? I'm the smusher?
Beverly: Yes, I push, you smush. It's the natural order of things.

Quote from Barry

Barry: Sure, I'm athletic and enjoy awesome stuff, while everything you know and love is for losers who suck it life. But, even though we're from two different worlds, I believe we can live in harmony.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Listen to our snuggle-monkey. She has a plan. It's sure fire.

Quote from Adam

Barry: Where's all your nerd stuff for me to stomp on?
Adam: Put it all in storage. Now I live in a room without joy or happiness. In your face!

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Ricky Gold, Big Tasty. Thank you for meeting me on such short notice.
Erica: Meeting? We're eating breakfast.
Beverly: Let me cut to the chase. What I'm looking at are two musical giants on the precipice of greatness. And as your mom-ager-
Barry: No!
Beverly: - I present The Tasty Gold experience. Even better, I won't take ten percent, you can pay me in huggies and smoochies.

Quote from Barry

Barry: Your toy's a hundred bucks, this is a million dollars!
Adam: They're one dollar a packet.
Barry: Everyone knows they triple in value every day.

Quote from Barry

Barry: Behold, my lady. The actual hi-top of basketball's greatest bad-ass, Sir Charles Barkley.
Lainey: Cool. Let me see.
Barry: No! Your hand contains damaging oils. You can admire it quietly, at a distance.

Quote from Barry

Barry: Dave Sirota hooked me up. His dad's the team doctor. All I gotta do is his math homework for the rest of the year.
Lainey: That is a horrible deal for him.
Barry: Yeah, it is.

Quote from Barry

Lainey: What did we discuss? Which Barry do I like?
Barry: Sweet Barry.
Lainey: Which Barry do I hate?
Barry: Yelly, punchy Barry.

Quote from Barry

Barry: No! Gone for ever. Fly away, little size sixteen. I'm a better person for having known you.

Quote from Barry

Adam: You owe me a hundred bucks.
Barry: Yeah, not gonna happen. You should know I'm unstable and would react poorly. This is on you.

Quote from Lainey

Lainey: One problem. You don't have a demo type and your cheap-ass dad will never pay for one.

Quote from Murray

Erica: What if I told you I could save you $20,000 today?
Murray: For the first time in your life, you'd have my full attention.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Dreams? Who said dreams? Momma's here. I support you.

Quote from Beverly

Beverly: Remember, you smush, I push. Fair warning, she's gonna get extremely upset and she will throw something at you. I apologize in advance 'cause I'm gonna let it happen.

Quote from Murray

Murray: Forget about college. Gamble your life in the dangerous and shady world of rock and roll.
Erica: For real?
Murray: So real. Unless your mom's got something to add.

Quote from Erica

Beverly: Ricky Gold?
Erica: Yeah, it's my stage name. 'cause Goldberg is, you know.

Quote from Adam

Barry: You are so dead!
Adam: Am I? Because I've never felt more alive.

Quote from Adam

Barry: Lainey said she had to think about our future. I can't have her thinking. What if she sees me for who I am?
Adam: Well maybe you should have thought about that before you were who you are.

Quote from Barry

Adam: Oh my God, Pops was right. No one wins a war.
Barry: Actually, somebody does win. Whoever's got the bigger nuke. And I've got The Adam Bomb.

Quote from Murray

Murray: Here, for your demo.
Erica: But we agreed you were going to talk to mom.
Murray: And I will. But I just need you to know that there's nobody else out there like you. Nobody. Look, I got my dream. I got this house, I got the family, I got you. And if this is what you really want, I say go for it. To a parent that's scary as hell, but I can't have you live your life thinking I held you back.

Quote from Murray

Beverly: That's my superstar client.
Murray: You're not going to be the mom-ager.
Beverly: We'll see.
