Matt Camden:
I'm gonna study. I just couldn't this afternoon because every time I looked up from my book, I noticed how dirty the kitchen was.

John Hamilton:
Well, an unclean kitchen never bothered you before.

Matt Camden:
Well, it did today, and you know, I hate to mention it, but if you had cleaned your breakfast dishes from this morning, I wouldn't have wasted my entire afternoon taking care of that little chore for you.

John Hamilton:
[stunned] Are you trying to blame me for you not studying? So you failed your organic chemistry pre-test because of Heather, and you didn't study this afternoon because I didn't do the dishes, and you're not studying now because your mom didn't do your laundry? [Matt nods] I'm just curious. Now, if you don't pass your chemistry midterm and get kicked out of pre-med, who are you gonna blame? Me? Heather? Your mom? The Colonel? The man on the moon? Problems in the Middle East? Global warming? What?

Matt Camden:
I don't know what you're so upset about. I'm gonna do fine on my midterm.

John Hamilton:
But if you don't, it won't be your fault, right?

Matt Camden:
Look, you don't understand.

John Hamilton:
No, I think that you don't understand organic chemistry, among other things, and you're too pigheaded to admit it, and instead of just asking for help or saying "I need help", you're blaming everyone and everything, as long as it doesn't allow you to blame yourself.

Matt Camden:
You are totally out of line.

John Hamilton:
I don't think I am.

Matt Camden:
Do you get good grades?

John Hamilton:
[smiles proudly] Yes, I do.

Matt Camden:
And? [pauses, doesn't know what to say] That's because I do everything around here, and you do nothing! [storms out]

Annie Camden:
I've signed up for school today.

Rev. Eric Camden:
What school?

Annie Camden:
College, Crawford. I want to get my teaching credentials in early childhood education.

Rev. Eric Camden:
Now? You do know that we have 7 kids now.

Annie Camden:
We have the twins and Ruthie, but Simon starts high school tomorrow, Lucy graduates high school this year, Mary's out of high school and working and Matt is out on his own.

Rev. Eric Camden:
Matt is hardly out on his own. He sleeps out on his own. He's still a kid.

Annie Camden:
Oh stop it. He and Heather are practically married.

Rev. Eric Camden:
No, they're not. That's just what we say to each other whenever we think those two might be shacking up. And Mary is going to college, she's going to go to college eventually... I hope, as soon as she figures out that she doesn't enjoy minimum wage jobs.

Annie Camden:
Unfortunately, I think Mary is quite happy with her stint in the world of minimum wage.

Rev. Eric Camden:
Well, I'm not happy with it. With my luck she'll probably decide to go to college when Lucy decides to go and with Matt's we'll have 3 tuitions to pay, oh plus yours. And by the way, who says that Lucy won't have the kind of senior year that Mary had. And Simon is starting high school. Do you remember what it was like when Matt started high school? High school boys are, well they're high school boys. And we shouldn't forget Ruthie, who is well on her way to being more difficult than all the other kids rolled into one. Oh and bonus, the twins are entering the terrible twos. They are not entering, they are there.

Annie Camden:
So, what are you saying? That the family is so dangerous that I can't take 1 or 2 hours away from them to take one course? I'm going back to school!

Rev. Eric Camden:
When were you going to tell me this, as you were backing out of the driveway tomorrow morning?

Annie Camden:
No, I planned to tell you just when I told you.

Rev. Eric Camden:
[sarcastic] Well, thank you Mrs. Camden!
