Randall: Mom, all I want to say is that I love you and I'm concerned. And you getting so defensive over absolutely nothing is making me more concerned. And for you to say that you're the mother and I'm the son after 20 years -
Rebecca: What, Randall?
Randall: Never mind. I don't want to say anything.
Rebecca: But you did. You said something very clearly and it was cruel and it was beneath you.

For 40 years, I pushed people away, not because I thought they would hurt me, but because I thought I would hurt them. I told myself that it was for their own good, that I was broken. But I was wrong. I wasn't broken. I was sick. And when you're sick, you've got to let the people who care about you help you.

Nicky

Sorry is like a magic word when you're kid. You say you're sorry and it all goes away. But then you grow up and it doesn't work anymore, does it?

Kevin

Gregory: I'm happy you came by.
Kate: Really? Cause it doesn't seem like it.
Gregory: I know. Ever since the stroke, I've been having trouble making my voice and face express empathy and gratitude. It doesn't mean I don't have any.

Guy: Are you looking for trouble?
Kevin: I don't have to look for it. Trouble always finds me. I'm a human wrecking ball, actually.

Okay, you two, just pretend I'm not here, but know that I will be here.

Beth

Nicky [on phone]: Hey, it's Nicky. Is Kevin with you?
Cassidy: No, we haven't talked all week.
Nicky: It's just that he's locked himself in this trailer since you two morons slept together and now he's gone. ANd he's left his phone behind, which isn't like him.
Cassidy: Look, I've got my own crap going on. I just signed my divorce papers...
Nicky: Look, how often have I ever called you?
Cassidy: Okay. I'm on my way.

Nicky: You slept with her, didn't you? That's why Cassidy hasn't been at AA all week.
Kevin: I'm not gonna discuss that with you.
Nicky: Let me ask you something, just out of curiosity here. What's wrong with you? I mean, I thought you were trying to fix the kid's marriage, not destroy it. You're like a wrecking ball.

Randall: What does Kate see in that guy?
Rebecca: Honestly, as long as she's happy, that's all that matters.

Jack: It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superdad.
Rebecca: Well, look at you.
Jack: I couldn't do it without you.
Rebecca: You'll never haev to.
