Rosalind Chao

Kirsten: I’m sure she’ll apologize.
Ryan: You are?
Sandy: It’s Julie Cooper we’re talking about.

Seth: My mom’s more popular than me. That’s a little pathetic, I realize.

Dr. Kim (Rosalind Chao): Seth. Always interesting to see you.

Dr. Kim: Ryan, you understand that if you did fail you’d lose a year. Not to mention self-confidence.
With all due respect, Dr. Kim, if you think not letting me in is going to inspire self-confidence… Gimme a shot.

Seth: You have to get in. I will not spend another year at that school alone. Thank you, please, study.

Seth: Not now Mom. I’m studying naked.
Summer: Ew.

Summer: What is this?
Seth: I don’t know. I’ve never seen it before.
Summer: What’s its name?
Seth: I don’t know… Captain Oats.

Dr. Kim: You walk away from this test, you walk away from this school.
Ryan: You’re probably right. It wouldn’t have worked out anyway. Sorry for wasting your time.

Seth: You’re a strange and mysterious woman, Summer.

Marissa: Go away.
Luke: I just wanted to see you. I’m so sorry. About everything.
Marissa: Yeah, that’s what you said in Mexico.
Luke: That was a mistake.
Marissa: No kidding.
Luke: What are you doing dressed like that?
Seth: Uh hey, your mom and the doctor are on the move.
Luke: You’re running away?
Marissa: Look, Luke, please, I…
Luke: Take the stairs.

Ryan: We’ll figure something out.
Summer: Well we better hurry. Because she just escaped from a psych ward wearing a candy striper outfit. If they didn’t think she was crazy before— Sorry.

Julie: You tell me where she is and I am taking her home. She ran away from a hospital!
Ryan: She ran away from you. Look. You’re from Riverside, right? That’s not too far from where I grew up.
Julie: I am calling the police in like two seconds—
Ryan: And I know this place has everything you never had. And I know you’re afraid you’re going to lose it all, everything you’ve ever wanted.
Julie: I’m done.
Ryan: But what you want and what your daughter wants are two different things.
Julie: You don’t know what she wants!
Ryan: I know what she doesn’t want. She doesn’t want to go to San Diego. And she doesn’t want to live with you.
Julie: I don’t know what I’m supposed to say to any of this.
Marissa: Just say yes.

Seth: So you still think that, after everything that happened today, when we get back to school you’re going to be able to ignore me?
Summer: Well. All I can do is try.
Seth: I admire your will.

Kirsten: Okay, now let’s talk about that surprise little trip to Tijuana.
Seth: It’s pronounced Tijuana. That’s how— You’re so white, mom.

Sandy: I’ve never heard you talk so much.
Ryan: I like to save it for when it counts.
Sandy: Good. So I heard about what happened with your test today. Or what didn’t happen. You’re suddenly not so talkative. Look I get it. Marissa needed help, you were worried about her. Believe me, I understand. I’m worried about you.
Ryan: I know. I’m okay with going to public school. It’d be a hell of a lot better than where I went.
Sandy: Go to Dr. Kim and explain yourself.
Ryan: I don’t think she wants to hear from me. Ever again.
Sandy: You’re afraid of her. You, who went toe-to-toe with Julie Cooper, the Dragon Lady. You can take Dr. Kim. Talk to her. If there’s a problem, you’ll have your attorney present. I got your back.

Sandy: You and Summer seemed pretty chummy yesterday.
Seth: Dad. “Chummy”?
Sandy: It’s okay, you can tell me.
Seth: No really, I can’t.
Sandy: If you can’t tell your dad, who can you talk to?
Seth: Gee, I don’t know. Uh, Ryan, Mom, that tree over there.
Sandy: You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.
Seth: When are you leaving?

Seth: Congratulations, Dude. You’re a Pirate.
Ryan: You guys are the Pirates?
Seth: Yeah I know. It’s a bit minty.

Seth: God! Dad! Those eyebrows are out of control.
Sandy: It’s a sign of power, you know.
Seth: Well then you must be the most powerful man in the world.
Sandy: Yeah well brace yourself, son. It’s genetic.

Seth: There’s a new invention that just came out you might have heard of. It’s called tweezers.
Sandy: Oo! You’re killing me.
Seth: Oh snap.
Sandy: You are killing me.
