Erin Silver: [to Kelly about Ryan] I think he has a crush on you.
Kelly Taylor: Oh, God, no. No, no, no, no. We're colleagues. I would never go out...
Erin Silver: Good. This school's hard enough as it is without my sister banging the teacher.
Debbie Wilson: Oh, I can pick you up tonight.
Annie Wilson: No, Silver's gonna give me a ride. I won't be home for dinner.
Dixon Wilson: Me too, peace.
Harry Wilson: Me, three. I've got a meeting with the teacher's union.
Annie Wilson: [to Silver] Hey, where were you today? I was looking for you at school.
Erin Silver: Fell asleep behind the biology lab.
Dixon Wilson: [to Silver] So, Ms. Silver, do you know how to bowl or you know, are you too cool for that kind of thing?
Erin Silver: I'm gonna kick your ass.
Dixon Wilson: Silver? What's going on?
Erin Silver: I've been staying at the women's shelter for a few weeks now. I did some community service there this past summer and there's this woman who... she lets me stay there sometimes. Sort of knows my situation. My mom, she drinks. When she's like this, she's a completely different person. It's like, she screams, she throws things, she blames me. Sometimes she gets so out of control. I don't know... sometimes it scares me.
Erin Silver: Dixon, I didn't tell you so you would tell your dad. I'm already enough of a freak at school. I don't want all the other kids to know my mom's a drunk, too.
Harry Wilson: Okay, well, Silver, you will stay here tonight. And as far as we're concerned, until we get this figured out.
Annie Wilson: Yeah, she can stay in my room.
Dixon Wilson: She can stay in my room.
Dixon Wilson: Just trying to help.
Naomi Clark: [to Tracy] I went to Dad's office last night and I saw him kissing another woman. He was all over her. I'm so sorry, Mom.
Tracy Clark: Her name is Gail. I know all about her.
Naomi Clark: He's been seeing her for two years?
Tracy Clark: Honey, she doesn't live in town, so they don't see each other very often.
Naomi Clark: What's going on? Are you ending it? Are you getting a divorce?
Tracy Clark: No, I don't want to break up this family.
Naomi Clark: Mom, this isn't a family!
Tracy Clark: Honey, Dad and I have a long history together, okay? We have two kids, two homes, friends. We have a life together.
Naomi Clark: Mom, what kind of life is this?
Naomi Clark: Oh, sweetheart... it's one that I don't want to lose.
Jackie Taylor: Your sister is just leaving, Erin.
Kelly Taylor: Yes, I am, and I am taking her with me.
Jackie Taylor: You have a 4-year-old with nobody to help you unless by some miracle he has decided to come back and act like a dad, and now you want to add a teenager on top of it. Let me tell you, she is no walk in the park.
Kelly Taylor: Well, she's coming to live with me.
Kelly Taylor: Let's go.
Jackie Taylor: You lied to me and now you're gonna leave me?
Erin Silver: Mom! Stop it, both of you! Mom, I can't take this anymore. I can't just watch you...
Jackie Taylor: [to Silver] Oh, get out! I am tired of both of you.
[Silver runs away]
Kelly Taylor: Good job, Mom.
Adrianna Duncan: Ethan, you've got to help. Naomi's freaking out in the parking lot.
Annie Wilson: What? What's wrong?
Adrianna Duncan: She saw her father with another woman. It's crazy.
Dixon Wilson: [to Silver] You don't think I know what you're going through? I didn't grow up in the Cosby family. You think every other family I lived with was like this? No! I know what it's like to be around someone who's wasted out of their mind! I know what that stuff does to people. That's why I never do it myself. Silver, look, you gotta trust my dad or at least trust me.
Ty Collins: [to Annie] So you're blowing me off tonight for bowling?
Annie Wilson: Oh, God, my parents are making me.
Ty Collins: That sucks.
Kelly Taylor: [about her son] He's only four and he is reading all these words. I'm sure that this is really boring to you.
Ryan Matthews: No, it's your son, it's fascinating. I love kids, you know. I teach kids, I flunk kids, I want to strangle them sometimes.
Navid Shirazi: [to Dixon] Dude, it's simple. Just tell your parents that you don't want to go.
Dixon Wilson: Look, I'm not trying to hurt their feelings, man. Just come to the bowling alley, tell them the thing about the movie. There's no way they won't let me go.
Navid Shirazi: You sure it'll work?
Dixon Wilson: You know what? Bring a lot of people. It'll be harder for them to say no.
Navid Shirazi: Peer pressure. Got it.
Ryan Matthews: [to Kelly] I'm just going to do this.
Ryan Matthews: Now are we dating?
Kelly Taylor: Oh, what the hell.
[passing by Erin's locker]
Kelly Taylor: [covering her face with her folder] If I don't see you, I don't know you're late. If I don't know you're late, I don't have to give you a late slip.
Dixon Wilson: Family night?
Annie Wilson: You want us to go bowling?
Harry Wilson: Yeah.
Debbie Wilson: Your dad and I would like to spend some time with you guys. I feel like we don't see each other anymore.
Annie Wilson: And we really, really want to hang out with you guys.
Dixon Wilson: Especially on a Friday night.
Annie Wilson: But... I have a date with Ty tomorrow night.
Dixon Wilson: And Navid's dad is showing the new Bond movie. Come on.
Debbie Wilson: Well, your dad and I have tickets to the Hollywood Bowl, but we're not going.
Harry Wilson: No, we're not.
Debbie Wilson: Because we want to spend time with you guys.
Ryan Matthews: [to Kelly] I'm sorry I was late. Traffic was a nightmare. You know, this guy wouldn't move. I think I hit a squirrel. Did you get stuck in that?
Kelly Taylor: No, I live just down the street. I walked here.
Jackie Taylor: [to Kelly] You can imagine my surprise when you called to say you were coming after. Well, how long has it been since our last altercation?
Kelly Taylor: I came to talk about Silver, Mom.
Jackie Taylor: Well, Erin is not here right now. She's staying at a friend's house, Naomi's, I think, or...
Kelly Taylor: Are you kidding me? Is that what you think? She hasn't been staying at a friend's house. She's been sleeping at a shelter.
Jackie Taylor: Well, she told me... oh, how dare you give me that look. I didn't know.
Kelly Taylor: Why is that? Were you too drunk to notice? What is these days, Mom? Alcohol? Or are you back on coke?
Jackie Taylor: Oh, let's go to another meeting together again. Let's hold hands and give it up to our higher power.
