Robert McCallister: I'm sorry about my family.
Nora Walker: You never have to apologize for family. Besides, it's refreshing to be the tame ones for a change.
Kevin Walker: Of all the situations you've ever put me in. He's a minister?
Kitty Walker: Yes, he's a minister. Have you never met a minister before?
Kevin Walker: I've never sucked face with one before.
Nora Walker: You know what, I've talked to the others. You took Tommy surfing the other day, you took Sarah and the kids to the zoo, you've asked me to go to the museum tomorrow. What are you going to do with Kitty, take her to the Reagan library?
Justin Walker: Why are you busting my chops, mom?
Nora Walker: Because I know what you're doing.
Justin Walker: I'm not doing anything, okay? I'm saying goodbye to my family because I'm...
Nora Walker: What? Finish the sentence.
Justin Walker: Because I'm going to Iraq, mom.
Nora Walker: That's not what you're thinking.
Justin Walker: Mom, I'm going to a place where people are getting blown up on a daily basis, okay? There's a very real possibility that I'm not gonna come back...
Nora Walker: Stop! Stop. If you go back believing something's going to happen to you, then something's going to happen to you.
Justin Walker: What do you want me to do, pretend I'm invincible?
Nora Walker: I want you to know as deeply and surely as I do that you are coming home. And that is the only thought you should have in your head.
Nora Walker: Well, if you feel you're ready to move out, then...
Kitty Walker: Ready? Why wouldn't I be ready?
Nora Walker: Of course you're ready. And I will miss you, probably terribly. But let's face it, you're a little old to be living with your mother.
Kitty Walker: Oh you know what, mom, why do you have to insult me, why don't you just come out and tell me that you're gonna miss me?
Nora Walker: Why can't you just come out and say you're scared to move out? Why do you have to make me into this clinging neurotic mother who's trying to force you to stay?
Sarah Whedon: Wow, it's like the passive-aggressive Olympics here today.
