"Queer as Folk: The Art of Desperation (#1.6)" (2001)
Craig Taylor: [to Jennifer] We're sending him away to school.
[to Justin]
Craig Taylor: It's time you learn some discipline, how to be a man.
Justin: I know all about discipline. And you should see me take it like a man.
[Craig slaps him on the face.]
Jennifer Taylor: Craig!
Justin: [after being slapped by his father] It's all right, Mom! It didn't hurt.
[to his father]
Justin: If you wanna hit me, go right ahead. Only I'm not gonna cry like some little faggot. And if you wanna send me away to school that's all right too. Because I bet more butt-fucking goes on in boarding school than in the backroom of Babylon. But whatever you do, it's not gonna matter. Because I'll still be your queer son.

Jennifer Taylor: Craig? Aren't you going to say anything?
Craig Taylor: Justin's not gay. Those nude drawings you found, they're probably just an assignment for art class. And the underwear, I'm sure he just bought it for himself.
Jennifer Taylor: It's not his size.
Craig Taylor: Still that's no reason to suspect that he's...
Jennifer Taylor: He told me himself.
Craig Taylor: So what? That doesn't mean anything. A lot of kids think that. They're confused, they're scared...
Jennifer Taylor: He's not confused, he's not scared. He knows. The same way we've always known.
Craig Taylor: No, no, I have not always known.
Jennifer Taylor: At least suspected.
Craig Taylor: No, you've suspected. He's not gay! He's...
Jennifer Taylor: What? Sensitive? Different? Artistic?
Craig Taylor: He's his own person. Not every kid is the quarterback on the football team.
Jennifer Taylor: I think you better talk to him.
Craig Taylor: And say what? "Your Mother thinks you're a homosexual?".
Jennifer Taylor: Before he gets himself into trouble. Before he exposes himself to God-knows-what... If he hasn't already.
Craig Taylor: Wait... You're saying he's doing things?
Jennifer Taylor: He's seventeen. How naive can you be?
Craig Taylor: So why didn't you tell me?
Jennifer Taylor: I promised him I wouldn't.
Craig Taylor: Oh, that's terrific. Don't I have a right to know what's going on around here?

Justin: You said you wouldn't tell! You promised!
Jennifer Taylor: Justin, I had no choice. I had to tell Daddy.
Justin: You lied to me. You said you wouldn't.
Jennifer Taylor: It was for your own good. When I saw you with this... Brian...
Justin: You keep calling him "this Brian", like that's his name. It's just "Brian".
Jennifer Taylor: [pausing] When I saw you with... Brian..., his arms around you, kissing you, I couldn't believe it! Not for the reason you think. It's not right for a man his age to be touching you! To be having sex with you. And..., even though you may think you... love him..., I'm sure he doesn't love you.
Justin: That's not true.
Craig Taylor: He's an adult! It's illegal for an adult to have sex with a minor.
Jennifer Taylor: Honey, it's not your fault. We don't blame you. We understand this man... enticed you...
Justin: He didn't entice me; I wanted him!
Craig Taylor: Justin... God! You're... you're too young to know what you want...
Jennifer Taylor: Craig, please. You promised you'd stay calm.
Craig Taylor: I... I am calm. And what about A.I.D.S.?
Justin: He wore a condom. I put it onto him myself.
Craig Taylor: Oh! God! I'm calling the police.
Jennifer Taylor: You're not calling anybody. That's all we need, for everybody to know.
Craig Taylor: Wait, you want this monster, this... child molester to go free?
Justin: He didn't molest me and I'm not a child.
[looking at Jennifer]
Justin: I love him... more than anything else in my life. It's all I want - is to be with him.
Craig Taylor: I... don't ever want to hear you say that again. And you are not to see him.
Justin: I'm going to see him. I don't care what you say.
Craig Taylor: I don't think so.
[Justin just walks away from his parents.]
Craig Taylor: No, you're not, Justin. Hey, Justin!


"Queer as Folk: Ted's Not Dead (#1.4)" (2000)
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: [searching for the right tea for Jennifer] Let's see. We've got Lemon Cream, Raspberry Parfait, Cosy Chamomile... How the hell did a condom get in here? Here, "Get Happy", you need it. So, what did his dad say?
Jennifer Taylor: He doesn't know.
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: How could he not know? You always know.
Jennifer Taylor: Same reason I didn't. I didn't want to.
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: Believe me, there are far worse things.
Jennifer Taylor: I just keep thinking, it's my...
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: It's not.
Jennifer Taylor: That I was...
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: You didn't.
Jennifer Taylor: You don't even know what I was going to say.
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: Yeah, I do. Because I asked myself all the same things.
Jennifer Taylor: So you don't think it was because I...
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: Smothered him? You smother a pork chop, not a son. People are what they are. So did he tell you to fuck off?
Jennifer Taylor: That wasn't even the worst of it. He told his therapist that he likes... dick.
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: There, you see? You already have something in common. I'm sure you were thinking you would probably never have anything to share again! Listen. They talk big and they act tough... But the truth is, the things he's the most afraid of, even more than his dad finding out and beating the shit out of him..., is that you'll stop loving him.
Jennifer Taylor: I could never do that.
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: Then you be sure he knows he hasn't lost you.

Jennifer Taylor: [Jennifer is driving slowly, looking for Justin near his school.] Justin.
[Justin walks away, ignoring her.]
Jennifer Taylor: Honey, please. I thought you might like... to come with me.
Justin Taylor: Where? To see another shrink?
Jennifer Taylor: It's a surprise.
Justin Taylor: I'm not interested.
[Jennifer stops the car, opens the door, and goes after Justin.]
Jennifer Taylor: You stop right there!
[Justin still ignores his mother.]
Jennifer Taylor: Stop running from me because I'm not running from you! I'm still your mother and you're still my son, and I still love you!


"Queer as Folk: Starting a Whole New Life (#4.3)" (2004)
Justin: The Pink Posse. We're protecting Liberty Avenue from homophobes. In case you weren't aware, there was a bashing.
Jennifer Taylor: I'm perfectly aware! I'm also aware that you were bashed!
Justin: All the more reason!
Jennifer Taylor: To put yourself at risk? Haven't you been through enough?
Justin: [yells] Don't fucking tell me what to do!
Brian: Hey, take it easy, Timberlake!

Justin: Hey.
Jennifer Taylor: Christ! What did you do to your hair?
Justin: It's called a haircut, Mother!


"Queer as Folk: Just a Little Help (#4.1)" (2004)
[Justin's mom is helping Brian sell his loft]
Jennifer Taylor: It's a special place.
Brian: 'Special' as in 'unique, fabulous, one-of-a-kind' or 'special' as in 'there are schools that can teach me to dress myself'?


"Queer as Folk: Premiere (#1.1)" (2000)
Jennifer Taylor: Of all the beautiful clothes your father and I bought for you, you have to pick something that no longer fits. That is too tight.
Justin: That's why!


"Queer as Folk: All Better Now (#2.2)" (2002)
Vic: Here, have some coconut cake.
Jennifer Taylor: Oh, no thanks.
Debbie: Vic made it himself.
Vic: Yeah, it's my warm-up for Gus' birthday.
Debbie: He used to be a pastry chef.
Vic: Black bottoms were my specialty.
[clears throat and glances over at Debbie]
Debbie: [holds up hands in defense] I didn't say a word.


"Queer as Folk: Smells Like Codependence (#1.7)" (2001)
Brian: [about Justin] He's not my responsibility.
Jennifer Taylor: Oh, yeah, he is. You seduced him, you fucked him, so now he's yours. Just kindly see that he takes his allergy medicine, and does his homework and gets to school on time. And... And tell him that we love him.


"Queer as Folk: Now Approaching... The Line (#1.5)" (2001)
Jennifer Taylor: So I thought, "Okay, he's having... experiences". But with boys his own age! This... man, he must be in his 30's!
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: Well, not yet, but I'll be happy to tell him you thought so.
Jennifer Taylor: Well, it's not right.
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: It happens.
Jennifer Taylor: If his Father finds out... Tell me about him. This... person. I have to know.
Deborah 'Debbie' Jane Grassi Novotny: Brian Kinney - God's gift to gay P.A. They all want Brian, but the good news is, no one can have him. He screws them, breaks their heart, and they wise up. Most of them, anyway.
