Quotes

Haley Dunphy: [griping to Claire about being in the same class with Alex] Her hand's in the air, like, every five seconds, and she actually reminded Mr. Waters to assign homework. The class loved that. Do you know how embarrassed I was?
Alex Dunphy: Not as embarrassed as I was when she said eight was a prime number.
