This Christmas, you better watch out!taglines


[from trailer]
Tom Baker: That's not gonna fit in your tent, Lorraine.
Lorraine Baker: Oh, I'm gonna make it fit, Dad!

[from trailer]
Kate Baker: Honey, you actually bought that shirt?
Tom Baker: Hey, every dad is entitled to one hideous shirt, and one horrible sweater. It's part of the dad code.

Anne Murtaugh: If my dad finds out before I tell him–
Charlie Baker: You'll be grounded?
Anne Murtaugh: Please! Just don't say anything.

Tom Baker: What do you do for a living, Eliot?
Eliot Murtaugh: Well... I'm in the 8th grade.

Kate Baker: [as an enraged Sarah stomps into this house] Hey, honey. How'd it... [notices Sarah's angry facial expression] go?
Sarah Baker: Dad was totally spying on me! [as Tom enters the house] You ruined everything! There's no way I'm competing for you in that stupid cup tomorrow! [storms off furiously; Kate gives Tom a disappointed look]
Kim Baker: I can't believe you did that.
Jessica Baker: Really, dad. That is so big brother.
Bud McNulty: Yeah, let's go.
Nora Baker-McNulty: Come on, Bud. Let's put this baby to bed. [they all walk out of the room]
Jake Baker: Not cool, dad. [leaves the room in disgust; leaving only Henry, Nigel, and Kyle]
Henry Baker: You know, you and Jimmy aren't so different, dad. Different styles, yeah, but... same result. Let's go, guys. [they leave the room to go to bed, leaving an ashamed Tom alone with Kate]
Kate Baker: Tom, I thought we talked about this: the more you hang on, the more they're going to pull away. Oh, god. I'll go to talk to her.

Tom Baker: All right. From now on, no seeing the Murtaughs, no talking to the Murtaughs, no thinking about the Murtaughs!
Sarah Baker: Can't we just compete and still, like, see them?
Tom Baker: No! Right now, I am not a father; I am a coach. And we're gonna be training twice a day, every day, starting outside in ten minutes. No later.

Lorraine Baker: [after Sarah asks her for some make-up help] Now, let's start with some lip gloss. [unleashes the lip gloss]
Sarah Baker: PINK? Can't we put on like a skin color?
Lorraine Baker: Hold still.

Tom Baker: Tire swing ready! [falls off tire swing] Tire swing, not ready!

[Sarah knocks Mike off his skateboard]
Mike Baker: SARAH!

Tom Baker: [to his newborn grandson] Tom. Hey, Tom. Welcome to family.

Mark Baker: Hello. Nature boy here, remember?

Jimmy Murtaugh: Nice hands.

Lorraine Baker: Still smells the same. Old gross stuff, dead animals, and murky lake water.
Tom Baker: It's called fresh air, sweetie.

Tom Baker: How I discipline my kids is none of your business.
Jimmy Murtaugh: You know, I've been trying to say this in a nice way, but, uh...well, there's a pretty good reason your kids are screw-ups.
Tom Baker: My kids screwed up. They are not screw-ups!
Jimmy Murtaugh: That's because you're not strict enough. Parenting isn't a popularity contest, Tom, but I guess if you knew that, your kids wouldn't be so undisciplined, and you and I wouldn't be having this conversation.
Tom Baker: The only problem with my kids is that they're hanging out with your kids!
Jimmy Murtaugh: It wasn't my daughter who got caught stealing.
Tom Baker: And it wasn't my son who trashed the tennis court!
Jimmy Murtaugh: Do you actually think I'm screwing up my kids, Baker?
Tom Baker: Yeah. And one day, they're gonna crack.
Jimmy Murtaugh: Well, why don't we test that theory? On Labor Day! Murtaughs vs. Bakers! For the cup! What do you say?
Tom Baker: You're on. We'll see you there.
