Quotes Edit

Andi: There's my sexy gardener.
Adam: Yeah.
Andi: I like you in those little green gloves.
Adam: Oh, these old things? (CHUCKLES) Just something I threw on. I'd already be done if you let me use that weed killer in the garage. I'm being punished just because Teddy used to... and I repeat, used to... lick the shrubs.
Andi: Okay, well, everything's looking good inside. The kids are cleaning their rooms, I got the laundry done. Now, I just have to figure out what that smell upstairs is.
Adam: I smelled that, too. I didn't say anything because I love you, and I thought It was you.
Adam: Hey! That came from Teddy's window. (SCOFF) It's like a Dumpster back here. Well, now we know how he cleans his room.
Andi: And where the Funyuns went. I'm sorry I blamed you.
Adam: Mm-hmm Throwing trash out the window? He gets that from your side of the family.
Andi: (SCOFF) Don't overreact.
Adam: I'm not overreacting. I am reacting.
Andi: Okay, but-but you got to admit, for the most part, our-our kids are pretty darn adequate. I mean they brush their teeth.
Adam: Emme doesn't.
Andi: They-they do well in school.
Adam: Teddy doesn't.
Andi: They still hug us.
Adam: Katie doesn't.
Andi: Okay, well, Kate puts "XO" at the end of her texts. That's a kiss and a hug.
Adam: Yeah. To a robot
