Randall, to Kevin: "Mom & Dad didn't raise no whores-except briefly, during Karen's eyeliner phase." 

Beth, to Randall: "I want to tell you something, but I don't know how to say it." 

Randall: "Since when do we censor ourselves around each other? You don't have to censor yourself with me; not ever. So, what's your question?" 

Beth: "How long is your crack-addict bio daddy gonna stay in our daughter's bedroom?"

Randall: "Damn."

Beth: "I know, right?"

Randall: "You need to censor yourself, woman."

Love them.

Kate: Josie and I prefer to call it research.

William: Was that the Manny?

Young Kevin, to his parents: "You're always making sure Kate does eat too much and Randall's not too adopted. But where's Kevin? Oh, right-he's dead."

Randall, to the girls: "Mom & I gotta get to work to pay for all this hair product." 

Olivia, to Kevin, re his audition: "It's call a 'pause.'"

Jack: I got it in Florida, in a magical land called Daytona Beach.

Kate: Can we go there?

Jack: NO. No, you may never go to Daytona Beach. I want you to say that out loud, "Daddy, I will never go to Daytona Beach."

"You're always making sure Kate does eat too much and Randall's not too adopted. But where's Kevin? Oh, right-he's dead."

That suddenly makes me think of the third triplet, who indeed is dead. And wonder if Kevin and Kate knew they were triplets, but one of them was never born. I don't think they do

Rebecca: I refuse to be my mother staring at my father as he stares at the television.

Kevin: You've got a great voice. You ever do any voiceover work? You should. You could be an owl in a Pixar movie. No offense.
William: Not sure why I would take offense to that.

Kevin: I don't do blueberries.
Annie: Me neither.
Randall: Since when?
Annie: Since now.
Kevin: it's not the taste, right? It's the texture of the skin. It's gross.
Tess: Yeah, I don't want blueberries either.
Randall: Any other dietary restrictions I should let the staff know about?
Kevin: No, man, you're busy. I'll just make a list for you later when I've got some time.

Kevin: So you told the girls that he's grandpa but not that he's sick, right? That's ballsy.

Randall: I was wondering, how can I say this politely?
Beth: When are you leaving?

Beth: Where are we going to get a sitter?
Randall: We've got two family members living in our house right now for free. One of them played a nanny on tv.
Kevin: No, actually an au pair. Technically I played an au pair on tv. There's a difference. Not a lot of people know that.

Toby: Breakfast in bed? What did I do to deserve this?
Kate: I don't know. You've done a lot of really nice things for me so I wanted to return the favor.
Toby: Awww. By cutting up cardboard into little squares and putting them in a bowl?

Beth: Bedtimes are at 8 and 9. That's teeth brushed and in bed.
Kevin: So one sambuca to chase down the Ambien and then lights out, right?

Randall: Okay, babe, here's the plan - sex first. Right away. Loud, adult, no kids in the next room sex. And it doesn't have to be marathon sex. We just need to get the job DONE! And under no circumstances are we allowed to fall asleep afterwards watching House Hunters. Ooh, we'll do it in the shower. That's good. Won't fall asleep in the big fancy shower. And we'll order room service before. That way we'll finish our loud adult shower sex just as room service arrives and we will slip on robes and eat burgers - no, wait, spaghetti. No, I like burgers  better. We will eat burgers in bed. The big question is what to order on pay per view. Ooh, I hope they have that Hugh Grant/Meryl Streep movie that sounds like a black lady. Florence Foster Jenkins. Baby, they already got Florence Foster Jenkins!

Toby: We've got carrots, celery, broccoli, no dip. You're welcome.

Rebecca: You knew when you met me and married me that I did not want to be one of those women whose sole purpose in life was to be a mother. If that's what you wanted, you should have married my mom.
Jack: I was thinking more your sister.

Annie: What happens when you die?
Kevin: What happens when you die is you die.

Jack: When did you guys know you wanted to have kids?
Miguel: About four months into her first pregnancy.

Beth: Damn Carolina punkass kids!

Kevin: Sorry if I was a jerk before. You're really not going to forgive me? What if I told you a secret that I've never shared with anyone before?
Tess: Is this about you dating Demi Lovato? Because everyone knows.
Kevin: No, it's not about Demo Lovato and we are just friends!

Tess: Can grandpa speak at my career day?
Randall: I don't think so, baby. You're only allowed one speaker and I'm already signed up.
Tess: I pick grandpa. He had a cool job.
Randall: What are you saying? That daddy doesn't have a cool job? But you guys love visiting me at the office! ...Right?
Annie: I like spinning in your chair.
Tess: You kind of have a boring job, dad.
Randall: Trading commodities futures based on long term weather patterns is not boring!
[Kevin snores]

Randall: Daddy's doing career day. End of discussion. And it's going to be lit!
Kevin: That's not how you use lit, right?
[Tess, Annie, and William all shake their heads]

Jack: This place is whiter than Randall's already pretty white school.

Tess: What was that?
Beth: That was a mid-life crisis, but just a little one so go on and eat your waffle.

School principal (a teacher?  I don't know.  He just said that Randall was "Tess's dad," not "Tess and Annie's dad") calling Randall a "weatherman" was LOL-funny. But he was just reading from his notes...

Beth: Hey, Kevin, did you see a yellow legal pad in my office?
Kevin: You mean my bedroom?

Olivia: I am definitely not getting together with relatives I hate so we can gorge ourselves on dry bird while pretending that we'd ever have anything to do with each other if we weren't related by blood.

Kevin: My mother is married to my dead dad's best friend. I have a twin sister who is seriously overweight. And I have an adopted black brother who just recently reconnected with his biological father who is dying. Now don't you want to see that up close?

William: VCR? Even I'm too young to use a VCR.

Miguel: How's the play going? You having fun at rehearsals?
Kevin: Fun? No, Miguel, I'm not having any fun. It's emotionally brutal work, but thank you for asking.

William: When a nice boy who adores you offers you pie, say, "Thank you."

Rebecca: Police Academy 3? You sure that's appropriate [for the kids]?
Jack: It was either that or 9 1/2 Weeks.

Kevin: Ha, you know what's funny? With the language barrier, sometimes Olivia's funnier than she means to be.
Kate: She's British. She speaks English.

Kevin: Forgive me for not learning in high school. I was having sex.

Kevin: On a scale of ripping off your Barbie dolls' heads and forgetting where I hid them to spilling marinara on your junior prom dress, how mad are we?
Kate: More than prom.

"Dad, Grampa's gay. Or at least bi."

I LOVE that.  When I was around that age, I didn't know what gay was.  Mind you, it was 1988-1989 or so...(I know, I know, it was the height of the AIDS crisis, but all I knew was it came from the exchange of bodily fluids).

Rewatching clips because this show owns part of my soul, and caught this beautiful Kevin/Randall moment I missed before.

Kevin: How's the sequel to Beginners going? It's a Christopher Plummer movie that came out a few years ago about a guy late in life who comes out of the closet. I say that because you're gay now.
William: I'm not gay NOW.

Kevin: Your bio dad's only half gay.

Toby: I'm going to do it - the surgery, in an hour. I wanted you to be informed but I didn't want you to freak out.
Kate: Okay, is that why you texted me in all caps GET BACK HERE ASAP 911 exclamation point crying face?
Toby: Yeah, the original version of that text had like ten more crying faces.

Kevin: Sloan is like hot librarian sexy whereas Olivia is more like intense artist kind of sexy. But she's also British which makes her hot librarian sexy by default.

Kate: We are a hot mess, aren't we?

Jack: The kids are turning ten tomorrow. They don't need more toys. They need a dog. Our beautiful children need a beautiful dog.
Rebecca: Okay, get them a dog. And then get them a new mommy who will walk it.
Jack: That's fair enough, but do you want to interview these women or do you trust my judgment?

Kate: Guys, we need to have a meeting.
Rebecca: What happened to knocking? And since when do you call meetings?
Jack: Last I checked, we call the meetings, you attend the meetings, and then we continue to feed you. That's the deal.

Jack: Wasn't Randall cute?
Rebecca: He's still cute!
Jack: He's fine. He was cuter when he was five.

Kevin: How's camp?
Kate: I'm not sure. It feels like a cult. Or Whole Foods. Hey, can you call Toby? He doesn't know anyone [in New York] and it would be nice if you could hang out with him.
Kevin: Are you serious? I can't believe this. I call to get help and now I gotta end up doing something nice?

Rebecca: Don't get emotional.
Jack: I'm not emotional. You're emotional.

Toby: I've never spent a whole day with a famous person before. I went to a dinner party once with the guy who came in eighth in Carrie Underwood's season of American Idol but obviously you're way better than that.

Toby: While you were out seducing women with your master race bone structure and your perfect man bod, I was logging two solid decades of actually doing nice things for women so that they fall for me. And on top of that, and I'm not exaggerating here, I have seen every romantic comedy ever made.

Toby: A romantic gesture of this magnitude is only effective if it is directed at the love of your life. The end of Notting Hill completely falls apart if Hugh Grant thinks Julia Roberts is just kinda aight. Then he's just kind of annoying her at a press conference, right?
Kevin: I've never seen that movie.
Toby: Shut up! What?
Kevin: Never.
Toby: What?

Kevin: Toby, you're a stud!
Toby: That's what I've been trying to tell you.

Young Randall (after having just been called into his parents' bedroom):  "Are we getting checked for lice again?"

Once Rebecca located a proper barber for Randall, I hope she would learn that American lice are adapted for while folks' hair. She had little or nothing to worry about with Randall.

Jack: For the next month, I'm going to ply [the kids] with greasy Chinese food and when the boys start to stink. I'm going to take them out back and hose them down.

Miguel: It wouldn't matter if this guy were Jeff Goldblum. [Rebecca] only has eyes for you.
Jack: Jeff Goldblum? Really?
Miguel: Have you seen Jurassic Park?

Miguel: You know what I'll do? I'll wear that new fedora I got.
Jack: Don't do that.
Miguel: I'm going to.
Jack: You'll embarrass yourself and me.
Miguel: I look great in that hat.

Toby: Now that I know you're not going to leave me for the Jared Leto of fat camp, I need to get some clothes for your brother's opening tonight.
Kate: Jared Leto?
Toby: Yeah.
Kate: Uhh, no.
Toby: He's like a bad boy.
Kate: Jared Leto?
Toby: He was kind of Jared Leto-ish.
Kate: I don't know.

Toby: Who was your first celebrity crush?
Kate: Aladdin.
Toby: Did you say Aladdin?
Kate: I did.
Toby: The cartoon?
Kate: Yeah. Did you see his abs?
Toby: Fair play.

Miguel: She's looking over here. What should I do?  Should I wink? Should I wave? I just winked and I waved at the same time. I think it was too much at once. Was it too much?

Miguel: You remind me of [Jack], you know that? The way that you move your hands when you talk, the way you walk across a room. Sometimes you remind me so much of him that the hair on my arm stands up. It's why it breaks my heart that you don't like me, Kevin. Because when I'm around you, I feel like I get a little piece of my best friend back.

He gets his best friend's little piece whenever he's around Rebecca.    Too soon?
