DAVID "GORDO" GORDON, Lizzie McGuire (2001)
Parents aren't interested in justice...they want quiet!
BILL COSBY, Bill Cosby: Himself (1983)
I'm starting to get why parents lie to their kids...you know, you want 'em to believe that the worst thing out there is mixing Pop Rocks and Coke, protect them from the real evil. You want 'em going to bed feeling safe. That means lying to 'em...so be it.
DEAN WINCHESTER, Supernatural, "I Believe the Children Are Our Future" (2009)
The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It's a good non-specific symptom; I'm a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you that a good phony fever is a dead lock, but, uh...you get a nervous mother, you could wind up in a doctor's office. That's worse than school. You fake a stomach cramp and when you're bent over, moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It's a little childish and stupid, but then so is high school.
FERRIS BUELLER, Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
Being a parent...it's the hardest job in the world and nobody prepares you for that. Nobody tells you how much you have to give up.
JENNIFER GROGAN, Marley & Me (2008)
Parents have to die. It's the only way children can come into their own.
AARON DORAL, Battlestar Galactica, "Bastille Day" (2004)
Havin' a kid changes everything. There's burping, the midnight feeding, and the changing... I hear it's terrible. Then you spend years trying to corrupt and mislead this child, fill his head with nonsense, and still it turns out perfectly fine.
ED BLOOM, Big Fish (2003)
The pride of man, of parents as well, makes us believe that anything we create we can control. Whether from clay or from metal, it is in the nature of us to make our own monsters. Our children are alloys, all; built from our own imperfect flesh. We animate them with magic...and never truly know what they will do.
SARAH CONNOR, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, "Heavy Metal" (2008)
I'm a cop and live with my parents. I'm on a constant diet of human suffering.
ROBERT BARONE, Everybody Loves Raymond (1996)
