Luke: Hey, Cohen, get up.
Seth: It’s my precious, you can’t have it!

Julie: I would love to stay and chat with you, Ryan. But I have to find my daughter.
Ryan: Not if I find her first.

Seth: So what’s the GPRA?
Ryan: I have no idea what you just said.
Seth: Game plan, Ryan Atwood.
Ryan: You’re just using initials now?
Seth: Yeah. They save time.
Ryan: Well, not if you have friends that don’t.
Seth: GP.
Ryan: Game Plan?
Seth: Good point.

Seth: Mom, Hailey made three different kinds of pancakes and waffles. They’re deliciously redundant.

Sandy about the pancakes: Enjoy them now, because we only have two hours to unleaven the entire kitchen.

Kirsten: What am I supposed to do? Sit back and let your mother take over the entire house?
Sandy: She’s going to do it anyway. At least this way we get a decent meal out of it.

Summer: I wanna meet The Nana.
Seth: Yeah, you really don’t though. Believe me.
Summer: What, I love old people! They’re so cute.
Seth: Yeah. Well, The Nana, not so cute.
Summer: Really? She’s ugly?
Seth: No, she’s just scary.

Summer: Where are you going?
Seth: Um, I have to pick up some stuff for the Seder.
Summer: What now?
Seth: The Seder. For Passover? Yeah, you’re not meeting The Nana.

Sophie Cohen (Linda Lavin): The front door’s wide open. A person could walk in here, take everything and kill us all.
Seth: It’s The Nana.

Kirsten: You remember my sister Hailey.
The Nana: Oh, right. The bad seed. I always liked you best. Don’t tell the others.

Seth: The Nana has never exactly cared for The Kirsten.

Sandy: Oh, c’mon, Mom. It’s Ryan’s first Seder.
Seth: How do you know that? Don’t assume that. They have Jews in Chino. Why do you think they want a P.F. Cheng’s?

The Nana: Shawn and your dad used to run in a gang together, did you know that?
Seth: Oh yeah? Bloods or Crips, father?
Sandy: It was more of a youth group.

Summer: I’m gonna study this thing so hard I’m even gonna out-Jew you.
Summer opens the Hagada.
Seth: You’re reading it backwards.

Sandy: Oh please, you’re gonna outlive us all.
The Nana: You think? Dr. Tally disagrees with you. He gives me four to six months, tops. He says I have advanced lung cancer. Want to know why I came? I came to say goodbye.

The Nana: Oh god, what am I doing here? I hate this state, I hate the sunshine, I hate the ocean. I hate Schwarzenegger!

Ryan: So what do you think of Chino?
Marissa: Actually, I think I could get in more trouble where I’m from.

The Nana: You told her, didn’t you.
Kirsten: I would never do that.
The Nana: That what were you talking about?
Kirsten: How scary you are.

The Nana: Oh, guilt now. That’s very impressive. Are you sure you’re not Jewish?

Ryan to Marissa: What about your dad? Caitlin? Summer? What about me? What am I supposed to do without you? I’ll get over you eventually, but it’ll take awhile.

Sandy: So how was everything at home?
Ryan: You tell me. I was in Chino.
