8.21 Flightless Bird, American Mouth Quotes

Posted by Amanda with 3 Comments

Mouth: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to an historic night of basketball. I’m Mouth McFadden and I’m along with my gamey partner Jimmy Edwards and, Jimmy, we’re in for a treat tonight.

Jamie: Its a bird, the Snipey Plover. It’s endangered.
Nathan: How do you know these things?
Jamie: I go to school, dad.
Nathan: That’s good. Stay in school, don’t do drugs.

Nathan: You can hang out with us instead. Except not in that shirt, who are you? Brian Boitano?
Clay: Brian Boitano won the gold in men’s figure skating.
Nathan: That’s my point, exactly.

Nathan: You’re a strange guy.
Clay: I know!
Nathan: No, seriously. You’re stranger than I thought you were.
Clay: You’re just noticing this? I’m a weird dude, an odd duck.

Jamie: This’s gonna be a blast, uh, Clay?
Clay [selflessly]: Yeah, this is really awesome.
Jamie [to Nathan]: How come he is wearing mom’s shirt?

Chuck [hits Nathan] CHUCK!
Nathan [hits him back]: NATHAN!

Chase: Alex (‘s gone) too. I mean, why will I care about she’s gone?
Nathan: Nice try.
Julian: Uhu.

Millie: I can totally do serious.
Boss: Maybe don’t go with the costume.
Millie: Got it.

Millie: It was weird that you were staying on your head, right?
Mouth: Totally, in case you didn’t notice, I’m weird, Millie, I’m an odd duck.

Chuck: Laaame!
Nathan: Speaking of lame, where is Clay?

Lauren: Unless you’re Brian Boitano.
Quinn: I think Clay’s got that shirt.

Nathan: Is there any place you’d rather be right now?
Clay: Puerto Rico.

Lauren: Hey, have you guys seen my shirt? Uh? Uh?

Mouth: Make sure you speak to the fact that it’s generational and small towns are define by places and things that we sometimes take for granted.

Nathan: You know, sometimes I think about when we were kids and the memories I have of my parents and their friends and then I think ‘this what they’ll remember when they look back.’ You know, these are the days they’ll tell stories about. That’s when I feel like I can do better, that I have the responsibility to try.

Julian [after telling Nathan that Brooke and him are pregnant]: I hope it’s a girl and that she’s just like her mom and that, someday, she’ll be best friends with Lydia Scott.
Nathan: I’ll drink to that.

Clay: I don’t understand camping. We’ve houses. We have beds, showers, flat irons…

Quinn: Sometimes it strikes me how poverty and privilege became silent neighbours and the world just keeps going… because it has to.

Chuck [to Chase]: I don’t want you to go.

Chase: Hope you know I was gonna tell you. A matter of fact, you’re the one I was worry about the most.
Chuck: Why?
Chase: Because I’m gonna miss you. Because we’re friends.
Chuck: Are you ever gonna come back?
Chase: Dude, of course I’m gonna come back

Mouth: Kids have grown up here. I should know, I was one of them. […] The truth is that a town’s identity is made of places like this one and once they’re gone, they’re gone. […] [Looking to Nathan] A lot of lost kids found their way to something better in this park, in a confusing world, at a confusing time in their lives. They found something that made sense here and they became better people because of it. Surely that is what preserves it.

Chuck [watching the bike that Chase bought him]: Man, this is better than those pictures miss Lauren sent me!

Haley: Karen’s cafe was always so special to us. Karen made sure of that and you too. I just thought maybe after you move I’ll reopen it and call it Karen’s cafe and maybe Jamie and Lydia will feel the same way that we did: safe, you know?

Thanks Nick!

    Is a Snipey Plover even real? o_O

    One of my favorite lines came from Jamie this week after Chuck had bulldozered the place and Clay’s shirt was left, well, victimized.
    Jamie: “At least the shirt was put out of its misery.”

    I can count on one hand I liked the episodes this season by far this was one of the most annoying, already proving that it’s time to quit anything full season with 13 episodes and not to prolong the agony, let us dispedir the series and actors and hope they get to new projects and have career success. I think the end is so lack even the playing ground in the coffin.
