Season 1[edit]

This Is Not a Pipe [1x01][edit]

Bay: (Looking at Daphne's CDs): Damn. Some of this stuff is too hard for me.
Daphne: Behind this sweet smile-- axe murderer.

Regina: You deserve to get arrested.
Daphne: You got arrested?!
Bay: Eh, what can I say?
Daphne: No one tells me anything.

Adrianna & Regina: (Speaking Spanish)
Bay: Between the Spanish and the signing, I'm lost.
Regina: She said, you are just like I was at your age.

Ty: Nice to meet you, Bay.
Bay: See you around Ty.
Daphne: (Snorts)
Bay: What?

American Gothic [1x02][edit]

Daphne: Emmett, this is my-- I mean, the people who--
John: Hi, John Kennish. Nice to meet you.

Bay: Okay. What just happened?
Toby: I think she just left on a '66 Triumph Bonneville T.T.
Bay: Oh, so I drink half a beer and get grounded for a week, but she gets to whizz around the city on the back of the-friend-who-you-just-met's motorcycle?
John: Don't worry. We're gonna fix that.
Bay: You're gonna unground me?
John: No, but nice try.

John: Daphne, Daphne, is he(Toby) bothering you?
Daphne: Yes.
Toby: No.
John: Good. He has years of torturing to make up for.
Daphne: That's it? You're not gonna help?
John: It's what big brother's do. See ya.

Liam: Hi, do you speak English?
Emmett: No, Japanese.

Emmett: (About Liam): Holler if you need me. I can definitely take him.
Liam: Your bodyguard?
Daphne: Pretty much.

Liam: My fried zucchini-- even better than my Dad's.
Daphne: (Raises Eyebrows)
Liam: Wait, that sounded really bad.
Daphne: Do you seriously cook?
Liam: Do I cook? Oh, I will take you down in the kitchen. Wait, that also sounded really bad. What's wrong with me today?

Bay: So... you were an alcoholic?
Regina: No. I am an alcoholic. Always will be. That's why I put them there. So I can see them and remember how frickin' hard they were to earn. (Sighs.) Because I'm not going back. And that's why I would have been harder on you for that fake ID than your parents were.
Bay: I don't get it.
Regina: You don't have the luxury of a couple of beers every now and then... because if you're anything like me, pretty quickly that couple of beers can become a six-pack, and then that six-pack is all you think about. It happened to my dad, it happened to me, and I'm going to do everything in my power to make damn sure it doesn't happen to you.

Toby: (To Bay & Himself About Regina Complaining About How He & Bay Were Raised): This isn't gonna end well for us.

Ty: Alright. I have work in the morning and you should probably get home.
Bay: Bleh, home.
Ty: (Mocking): Oh, I'm so bummed. I have to go back to my mansion.
Bay: Oh, shut up.
Ty: No, look, you don't get to complain.
Bay: Did I or did I not just spend the last 45 minutes telling you about the insanity that is my life?

Bay: (Seeing John, Kathryn, & Regina Talking): Toby, back away slowly.

Daphne: Is it safe?
Regina: No one's killed each other yet.

Portrait of My Father [1x03][edit]

John: Daphne, it's okay. That's just Bay being Bay.
Bay: What does that mean?
Toby: I think it's a euphemism for another word that starts with "B".
John: Toby.
Bay: Don't worry, Dad. That's just Toby being Toby.

Bay: Indulge me. I'm trying to figure out what my life could have been like, who I might have been.
Ty: Hmm, well, you'd probably still be a pain in the ass.
Bay: (Sarcastically): Oh, thank you. You're so sweet.

Liam: (To The Interpreter On The Video Phone With Daphne): Could you emphasize "really"?

Liam: (To The Interpreter On The Video Phone With Daphne): Could you tell her-- wait, don't sign "her" like I'm talking about her in third person 'cause that's rude.

Liam: I know you're(Daphne) mad.
Interpreter: Never tell a woman she's mad.
Liam: Dude, I got this.
Interpreter: Your funeral.

Daphne: So, you would never date anyone hearing. No matter what. You're telling me if Brooklyn Decker came onto you you'd say, "Sorry, I'm deaf, you're hearing, this cannot work."
Emmett: Brooklyn Decker? The Sports Illustrated model?
Daphne: That's the one. I knew it.
Emmett: Well, obviously, first, she'd want to make passionate love to me many, many times. But after that? It'd never work. She wouldn't understand my culture, my family, my perspective on the world. And that's everything. Fact it my ideal girlfriend is hot, smart, funny, into motorcycles & deaf. If I actually found her, I'd walk away from Brooklyn Decker in a heartbeat.

Dance Amongst Daggers [1x04][edit]

Regina: Who is Liam?
Kathryn: Bay's boyfriend.
Regina: Bay's boyfriend.
Daphne: (Eyes Widen)
Regina: Bay's boyfriend.

Bay: If I was dating someone from your school, I'd probably think to tell you about it.

Bay: No, Mom. It's cool, it's fine. It doesn't matter. Liam and I have broken up and besides, I'm dating someone new now.
Kathryn: Who?
Bay: (Looks at Daphne): His name's Ty.
Daphne: (Eyes Widen): My Ty?
Bay: No. My Ty.
Regina: Oh, god.

Emmett: So have you broken up with him(Liam) yet?
Daphne: Why would I do that?
Emmett: Because you have to. Isn't it like the "girl code" or something.
Daphne: I don't think there's a code that covers this situation.
Emmett: You've already taken Bay's family. You can't take her boyfriend, too.
Daphne: I didn't take her family. And he's not her boyfriend! She broke up with him.
Emmett: So, he's her hand-me-down. Even worse. You want my opinion, Liam is damaged goods. He will always be Bay's.

Liam: (To Himself About Bay): Not even dating and we're still fighting.

Kathryn: We're inviting everyone we know to our house, knowing full well they're gonna be staring at us. And meanwhile our girls are fighting over some boys.
John: (Pouring Wine)
Kathryn: Could you pour me on of those?
John: This is for you.

Kathryn: I'm sorry your friend(Ty) couldn't come. But considering that he's 19, I'm not that sorry.

Kathryn: How are things with--
Bay: Things are fine with me & Daphne.

John: Ladies, photo opportunity.
Bay, Kathryn, Daphne, Regina, & Melody: (Walk Off In Different Directions)

Liam: (Signs): You. Beautiful.
Daphne: Not so bad yourself.
Liam: What does that even mean?

Wilke: Hey, so if Bay's not really your sister, you could totally take a run at that.
Toby: Uh, no.
Wilke: Then, do you mind if I do?
Toby: Yes.

Daphne: I know a drummer.
Toby: You do?
Daphne: Yeah, Emmett.
Toby: Deaf Emmett?
Daphne: No-- Blind Emmett.
Toby: Well, honestly that would be better because at least then he could hear the songs.

Bay: Unbelievable. Is the whole freakin' world in love with her(Daphne)?

Wilke: (To Toby About Emmett Drumming): This is gonna be a disaster.

Toby: We are "Guitar Face". And I promise you this is gonna be interesting.

Kathryn: Where have you been?
John: I'm guessing whatever answer I give you will be the wrong one?

Bay: Just so you know, I may not be good at school or sports or being nice, but I know how to keep a guy interested. You should think about that the next time you're with Liam.

Kathryn: Toby, would you hide this for me somewhere?
Toby: What is it? You bought Dad's jersey?! (Laughs)
Kathryn: Shh!
Toby: Okay okay.

Bay: And you wore a suit
Ty: Yeah, I do own one, you know.

Dogs Playing Poker [1x05][edit]

Bay: (To Ty): Why are we talking and not kissing?

John: (To Ty): You don't look like Simone.
Ty: Hello sir.

John: What are we gonna do?
Kathryn: Well, we can't stop her from seeing him.
John: (Scoffs): Oh, yes we can.
Kathryn: If we do that,we are going to be raising "Ty Junior" in a year.
John: That's not funny.

Ty: So is this gonna be like some type of interrogation?
Bay: It's going to be exactly like one. With cornbread & chili.

Kathryn: Is that the article on the party? How is it?
Toby: How much champagne did you have?
Kathryn: My gosh, what did I say?
Toby: I'm kidding.

Bay: He(John) wants to get to know him(Ty), so Ty's coming over for dinner tonight.
Daphne: That's not gonna go well.
Bay: Says the optimist of the family.

Kathryn: Do you think they(Bay & Ty) might be having sex?
Regina: Have you seen Ty without a shirt?
Kathryn: No. Have you?
Regina: Now that's a washing machine.

Bay: Abandon hope all ye who enter here.
Ty: That's not funny.
Bay: I was being serious.

Ty: You said she(Daphne) would be here.
Bay: She said she would be here.

Ty: Listen, you know that I was--
Bay: Ty, don't. Whatever big romantic goodbye you've prepared-- You did prepare one right?
Ty: Yes.
Bay: Good. But I don't want to hear it. Whatever you have to say, just say it when you get back.
Ty: Bay, I don't know--
Bay: I mean it. Don't. Because if you lay out the big L right now... I'm gonna be so mad at you for doing this to me. And if you don't I'm gonna be mad at you for not saying it. So...
Ty: Alright. Then, I'm just not gonna say anything.

Daphne: C'mon, we don't have to have a penis pinata, but we can still have some fun!
John: I'm not sure it's even ethical for me to get involved and what about all the soldiers who aren't dating senator's daughters? Somebody's got to go.

Departure of Summer [2x21][edit]

Emmett: I know some people, myself included, may have thought they were a little too young to take this step, but when you find the one who's right for you, you hang on tight because if you don't, they can slip away. To Toby and to Nikki, hang on tight and enjoy the ride.
Kathryn: She's not committing a felony or getting married. For us, right now, that's a win.

Season 3[edit]

Drowning Girl [3x01][edit]

Daphne (to Campbell): I just missed my bus.
Campbell: Would you like a ride?

Bay: So, love a kegger as much as the next gal, but this is our first assignment.

Your Body Is a Battleground [3x02][edit]

Daphne: Do you think I would feel differently about being deaf if I remembered what it was like to hear?
Toby: In my experience, coaches are hardest on the players they think have real talent.

Fountain [3x03][edit]

Wes (to Regina): I'm passionate. I can't promise I'm not going to yell at you.
Regina: I can't promise I'm not gonna yell back.
Wes: Works or me.
Bay: You know what I decided? I'm not letting unhappy people decide what I get to do.

It Hurts to Wait With Love if Love is Somewhere Else [3x04][edit]

Angelo (to Regina): I know guys like West. To him, you're just another piece of ass.
Regina: Do you know insulting that is? Do you even hear yourself? You're just jealous because he can give me what you can't: the money to fix your mistakes.
Bay (to Emmett): So you'll cheat on me, but not on her?
Emmett: I apologized a thousand times for what happened with Simone. But you keep throwing it back at me.
Bay: I do not.
Emmett: Yeah, you do. And that's why we can never get back together again.

Have You Really the Courage? [3x05][edit]

Tank: You are a mattress!
Bay: I am a mattress!
Kathryn: Me and vodka, not the best idea.
Renzo: Then that means it's the best idea!

The Scream [3x06][edit]

Regina: I don't know who started it, but as the single person in the equation, you need to be the one to back off.

Memory is Your Image of Perfection [3x07][edit]

Melody (to Emmett): Why do you want to go to Gallaudet?
Emmett: Because all the girls are good with their hands?

Dance Me to the End of Love [3x08][edit]

Angelo (to Bay): You know what I learned this summer?
Bay: That Vasquez women have terrible cleaning habits?
Angelo: Well, yes, but also that if you're willing to yell at me that you're really my daughter.
Bay: I woke up one day and learned I wasn't Bay Kennish. And the only way I got through that was because of art and if that gets taken away from me, I don't know.

The Past (Forgotten-Swallowed) [3x09][edit]

Kathryn: Too bad he dried out.
John: Yeah, tell me about it. Dry Hump Ale.
Kathryn: John Kennish and his harem what just the juice I needed. Don't worry. The names have been changed to protect the slutty.

The Ambush [3x10][edit]

Toby: Well, I don't know how we're supposed to stay married if we don't even live on the same continent.
Campbell: Daphne, I don't expect you to get everything right just because you're deaf!

Love Seduces Innocence, Pleasure Entraps, and Remorse Follows [3x11][edit]

Love Among the Ruins [3x12][edit]

Emmett (to Bay): Are you into Tank?
Bay: It doesn't matter if I'm into him. We're together. Emmett, I did the one thing that I swore I would never do. You, of all people, should understand how crappy I feel right now.
Bay: There's so much that could drive us apart, but I'm not gonna let it. You're the one that I always come back to.

Like a Snowball Down a Mountain [3x13][edit]

John: Sometimes love makes you do stupid things.
Bay: Oh. It was a tasteful junk shot. I did not know I would ever have to learn the sign for junk shot.

Oh, Future [3x14][edit]

Daphne (to Regina): No, because people hold it against them in the same way they hold deafness against me. I know what it feels like.
Regina: So you're not Latina because you don't feel burdened enough? Me and your grandmother and generations before us faced discrimination because our name is Vasquez. You don't think that affects you?
Bay: You will always have me.
Emmett: Seeing you and being with you is the best part of every day.

And We Bring the Light [3x15][edit]

Bay: So, my whole world ended four days ago and I didn't even know it.
Kathryn (to Bay): Well, maybe writing isn't the same as the visual arts...
Bay: Mom, you're not a writer. Not a real one.
Toby: Bay!
Kathryn: Good luck with your project.

The Image Disappears [3x16][edit]

Kathryn: When my kids are in trouble, I want them to come to me whether or not they believe in me.
Regina: He never told me he had a will.
Bay: He already made the hard decision for us.

Daphne: Being good all the time gets you nowhere!

It Isn't What You Think [3x18][edit]

You Will Not Escape [3x19][edit]

Bay: You know what? You are not the only one going through stuff, so stop acting like a little brat!
Kathryn: Wait a minute. Did you just say Jane Austen and "batter up" in the same sentence?
Daphne: You are not my mother. You have never been my mother.

Girl on the Cliff [3x20][edit]

Kathryn: There's no going back, only forward. It's easy to live in anger, but I have to be grateful that at least, eventually, we found each other.
Counselor: OK, everyone, gather around. We're about to announce your prom king and queen.
Bay: Oh, exciting. Let's see who the prettiest, most popular, most superficial couple in the school is.
Natalie: Cool!
Bay: This is a joke, right?

And Life Begins Right Away [3x21][edit]

Bay (to Daphne): Who would have thought that we would end up graduating from the same school?
Daphne: Three years ago, I didn't even know you existed.
Bay: And I had never even heard of Carlton.
Daphne: Do you remember that day? The day we first met?
Bay: I was so jealous of you back then.
Daphne: Now you're the one with the perfect boyfriend, perfect life out in L.A.
Bay: Daphne, stop.
Daphne: It's true. You handled everything so well after Angelo died.
John: What is going to happen to her?
Kathryn: I'll tell you what's going to happen. She is going to live through this and so are we.

Yuletide Fortune Tellers [3x22][edit]

Regina (to Daphne): The whole perfect Kennish Christmas thing makes me feel like you were cheated out of this storybook life; like you somehow drew the short straw because you got stuck with the single mom.
Daphne: Mom! I love our Christmases.
Bay (to Kathryn): Come on, Mom, what is with you? You're like the cruise director on the cruise to Christmas hell!
Bay: Mom, I love every single thing about our Christmases. That's not entirely true. But, every family has a little crazy and if I have to have crazy, I prefer your crazy over anyone else's.

Season 4[edit]

And It Cannot Be Changed [4x01][edit]

Emmett (to Daphne): Bay and I had plans. She had a life we were excited about and you ruined it.
Daphne: I know and I'm sorry, but she'll be out there soon.
Emmett: No, she won't. Her probation got extended because she did something stupid which she never would have done if she hadn't been there in the first place.
Daphne: What are you talking about?
Emmett: Everyone has let you off the hook. Your parents, your sister, those stupid cops who believed this stupid lie. Daphne had a meltdown and so the whole family has to pay for it.
Daphne: Stop yelling at me and just talk to me, please.
Emmett: No one's telling you anything because they're afraid you're too fragile, but I'll tell you. There is no forgiving you for this. Ever.
Daphne: I'm so sorry that this turned into such a mess.
Bay: Yeah.
Daphne: That's why I'm not going to Gallaudet. I know that you didn't ask me too. It's just the right thing to do: stay.
Bay: You don't get a medal for not going.
Daphne: I know that. I just wanted to be around for you. For whatever you need.
Bay: Well I need you to not be here right now.
Daphne: What?
Bay: I need you to leave my room.
Daphne: Bay, I...
Bay: No. Seriously.

Bracing the Waves [4x02][edit]

Josh: Why are you sorry? They should be sorry. What? They can't take the extra three minutes it would take to let us catch up?
Daphne: Josh, I got this.
Josh: You guys are training to be doctors, right? To heal people would are sick. You guys are douchebags! Did you know that?! Total douchebags!

I Lock the Door Upon Myself [4x03][edit]

Kathryn: Look, Regina, you don't have to give away Angelo's things right now. If you're not ready, you're not ready.
Toby (to Daphne): I was way to hard on you at the orientation.
Daphne: It's alright; actually I'm glad you yelled some sense into me and I'm really glad I didn't go away to school.

We Were So Close That Nothing Use to Stand Between Us [4x04][edit]

Kathryn (to John): He just doesn't seem worried about supporting himself, I mean at all.
John: Kathryn, I hate to break this to you but this may be the child that we raised. We've always provided for him.
Kathryn: I think it's time we cut the strings.
John: What have you done with my wife?

At the First Clear Word [4x05][edit]

Bay: Tess has a boyfriend, a pretty serious one, I think she loves him a lot. But I guess last night she got really drunk, like smashed and when she woke up this morning, she found that she had, had sex with someone else, but she doesn't remember it. Nothing, black-out. Does that found as cheating? I mean, does she have to tell her boyfriend?
Regina: Well, that's awful.
Bay: That she cheated.
Regina: That she was raped.
