Judy: What are you going to do while I'm having book club?

Brian Miller: That'll be a light drizzle.

Bill: Judy, who would want to go to a Mother's Day high tea?
Brian Miller: Wow, did someone say high tea? Can I go?

Brian Miller: That's not fair. I'd appreciate a high tea more than her.
Bill: Pick a team, son. Pick a team.

Bill: uh, fell to my death?

Judy: Bill, why are you hosing down the backyard?

Bill: [running to the bathroom] This is gonna be a photo finish!

Brian Miller: This is Chris. He's our new neighbor, and he's also in some of my A.P. classes, so I'm just showing him the ropes.
Lauren Miller: [to Chris] Did he show you the one in gym he can't climb?

Judy: Lauren, do you have any idea what your brother's been doing with all his money?
Lauren Miller: Apparently, not hiding it as well as I hide mine.
Bill: You have money?
Lauren Miller: No.

Judy: Come on in, kids, Dad took care of dinner!

Bill: What's for dinner?
Judy: Remember what we had last night? Cream of that.

Judy: Don't you think there's a little double-standard there?
Bill: Not at all. I have one standard for Brian and another different standard for Lauren. That way, they each get their own.

Bill: Hear that, Judy? I'm married to a hooker!
