We don't work when we are apart, but together baby, together we set the world on fire.

Beth

Kate: I want you to be here for me, but even more for Jack. I want my son to grow up with that Rebecca Pearson level magic too.
Rebecca: I think that's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me.
Kate: Mom, can I just apologize in advance for being triggered by everything you're going to say and treating you like a punching bag for the next year or two?
Rebecca: That's fine. It's what I'm here for.

Deja: You remember a while back when you took me to your dad's building because you wanted me to sign my adoption papers?
Randall: Yeah.
Deja: You remember when you said that you had everything you were going to say planned out?
Randall: Yeah.
Deja: Well, you're not the only one in the world who can drag somebody on a long car ride just to give them a big speech at a meaningful location. I lived in this house for eight months while my mom was in rehab.
Randall: Oh wow, Deja I didn't know...
Deja: Not now, I'm doing a speech.

Kevin: One thing that I have learned is that I don't think we figure out who we are all at once. I think it happens over a long period of time, piece by piece, you know? Okay, take me for instance. A couple of years ago, I get close with your dad, and I found a piece of myself in that. I meet your aunt and I found another piece of myself. Honey, I think that's sort of how it works you know? We go through life slowly but surely collecting these little pieces of ourselves that we can't really live without until we eventually have enough of them to feel whole.
Tess: And you think that'll happen for me?
Kevin: Nah, probably not, I mean you're not that special. Do I think it will happen for you? I know it will happen for you! Tess Pearson, you my niece, have so many years ahead of you to find all your pieces. Now is that corny or did I nail it?

Randall: I refuse to be blamed for the fact that you had your awakening twenty years too late! At any other point in our marriage, if you had decided that you wanted to go back to dance, I would've been nothing but supportive.
Beth: Oh when would I have done that, huh? Between which of your anxiety attacks?

Beth: I wasn't expecting you. I didn't think that we would end up together. The single most extraordinary thing I've ever done with my life is fall in love with you. I've never been seen so completely, loved so passionately and protected so fiercely.
Randall: Damn baby that was nice.
Beth: Right?

Randall: Beth, love of my life, will you marry me?
Beth: I need to work, and you need to stop proposing.
Randall: So, is that a yes?
Beth: It's a not yet!
Randall: Well, at least we're getting closer. When I proposed on the jumbotron at the Pirates game you said hell no, so not yet is a step in the right direction.

Randall: You're an architecture major. I thought you might want to study dance.
Beth: No. What made you think that?
Randall: I asked around about you.
Beth: Well you got some bad intel. I used to dance, but not anymore.
Randall: Never? Like if someone put on some Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, you wouldn't cut a rug?
Beth: First of all, you don't dance to Lauryn Hill, you groove, and secondly who says cut a rug?
Randall: A lot of people say cut a rug.
Beth: White people.
Randall: Well, I was raised by white people.

Jack: I think if I saw you in high school, everything else would just disappear. All of a sudden, none of it would've mattered. Not my dad's drinking or my parent's fighting. I would've walked right up to you and said hi. And that would've been it. Happily ever after.
Rebecca: Really? Just like that?
Jack: Just like that.

Sophie: Are you okay? I'm only asking because when you broke up with me I spent a lot of time wondering if you were okay. I also wanted to kill you. Like 50 percent wondering, and 50 percent wanting to kill. More like 70-30.
Kevin: Seventy percent wondering if I was okay and 30 percent wanting to kill me?
Sophie: No.

I called you four times Beth. What did you turn your phone off so you didn't have to deal with me, while you're busy standing me up? If you had told me something was this important to you, heaven and earth couldn't have stopped me from being there, but maybe that's the difference between us, I don't know. I hope it was worth it, okay? I hope your off having fun, talking about how to teach bored housewives how to twirl. Grow the hell up, Beth.

Randall

When I look at Jack, I am scared as hell of his tubes and his tape too. But then I look at his eyes and I see that his left is a tiny smidge bigger than his right, like yours. And I see a tiny crease above his chin like mine. I see us.

This Is Us Quotes

Life feels like Pac-Man sometimes, I guess. It's the same game all over again. Same board. Same ghosts. Sometimes, you get a bunch of cherries but eventually and inevitably, those ghosts catch up with you.

Beth: Zoe, you could be with any other guy. You're going to be with Kevin?
Zoe: Yes, I'm going to be with Kevin!
Beth: What in the holy hell are you think?
Zoe: What am I thinking? I'm thinking he looks like Batman and he is built like a truck.
