‘That was a dinosaur? THAT’S A DINOSAUR!’
“Pretty woman! No, I mean that was my first time song, I can’t believe I remember that.”
“Mom, we don’t need to picture you and dad!”
“Who said anything about dad?”

Brothers & Sisters 4.10 Nearlyweds
Kevin: The one contribution you made to this party is to bring Senator Homophobe!
Kitty: Kevin I really thought you and I were done with this.
Kevin: God you miss the point! OK. OK. It is one thing to go and work for the guy, which I have finally come around to. But to bring him to our house, to my mother’s birthday party?!
Kitty: Pedro’s his chef! It was the nice thing to do. What?! You have no room to talk. What? Sleeping with a closeted actor.
Kevin: Who told you?
Kitty: Tommy did.
Tommy: I never said a word. You’re the one blabbing to the entire family.
Kevin: OK. Whatever, look, where did you hide the wine? I need to get grandma a drink ASAP?
Tommy: It’s in the closet.
Kitty: You put the wine in my closet? Is your little boyfriend in there?
Kevin: He’s not my boyfriend!
Kevin: ”Yeah, that’s whose D.N.A. We should be testing.”
Tommy: ”Did you bring your D.N.A. kit with you? You’re gonna swab her over salad?”
Kevin: “I could get a stray hair.”
Tommy: ”No, that’s not gonna work. You have to get it from the root.”
Justin: “What are you, Columbo?”
Tommy: “I watch all the crime shows.”
Kevin: ”I’ll take her water glass into a lab.”
Tommy: “No, no. That’s not gonna work either. The glass will get corrupted.”
Justin: ”Look, are you both high?”
Brothers & Sisters 1.17 — All in the family
REBECCA: Justin. Hey. I don’t know how you are right now, or where you are, but I’m just going to assume that you’re all right, and that you’ll be watching this soon. I’ve been getting to know your family. Not that that’s an easy thing to do, because, well, they’re all a little unhinged. But I think tonight I finally started to figure them out.
Like Tommy, he’s always so stoic. Taking care of everyone around him. I’m just not sure who’s taking care of him.
And Kevin. When he’s really hurt, man, is he sarcastic and funny. God, he’s brutally funny, but I think even he knows that’s not always enough. Not now. Not for this.
And Sarah’s just this force. Kind of like superwoman, you know? With the kids and the job. She’s always fighting so hard for her family all the time, but I’m sure she sometimes wishes it was easier. Not so complicated.
Kitty’s the one I don’t really know yet. But I’m glad she came home. I think she needed to be here. Especially now. I think being around her family is what grounds her, gives her direction, keeps her sane.
And your mom. Oh, she’s like the most amazing woman I’ve ever met. The way she handles everything, and everyone. But every so often, I can tell she’s a million miles away, thinking about you. And then she just looks so scared and small.
And you were wrong about being the black sheep. You’re the heart of this family, Justin. They need you and… I need you, so… Please be okay. Please.
