Jack Pearson: Oh, come on. Kids are turning ten tomorrow, right? They don't need more toys, but a dog. Baby, our beautiful children need a beautiful dog.
Rebecca Pearson: [giving in] Okay. Get them a dog.
Jack Pearson: Okay.
Rebecca Pearson: And then find them a new mommy who will walk it.
Jack Pearson: That's fair enough, but, um... do you, uh, do you want to interview these women or do you trust my judgment?
Rebecca Pearson: [laughs] Oh, you're lucky you're cute.
Jack Pearson: But am I cute enough to get lucky?
Rebecca Pearson: [they kiss] I don't know. Are you?
