Character’s Quotes
– [walks into kitchen] I am totally aware that this family doesn’t value self-presentation in the same obsessive way that I do. Fine. Whatever. But one of my life goals aside from being, like, a fashion guru is to indicate to the local community that the Baker family actually owns a bar of soap. So, as self-appointed in-house rep of style and hygiene, I think that I should be allotted at least five extra minutes in front of the mirror.
– Call me crazy Pops but things are getting pretty twisted around here.
– Up ’til now I’ve been, like, mellow about this whole having-it-all lifestyle that you and Mom are currently into. A, because Sarah has the drama queen role totally covered, and B, because I have benefited from your salary spike in various shallow but nonetheless pleasing ways.
