Are you under the impression that family's supposed to make you feel good? Bake you an apple pie, maybe? They're supposed to make you miserable, that's why they're family!
BOBBY SINGER, Supernatural, "Lucifer Rising" (2009)
I try to mold us into a family that will blend in, and what do I get? A surly teenager, a sister obsessed with a man, and a brother who drinks too much. Is there another family in the whole world like this? I don't think so!
DICK SOLOMON, 3rd Rock from the Sun (1996)
Families don't refer to each other by rank. They use more familiar terms like "you" or "bastard" or "you bastard".
DICK SOLOMON, 3rd Rock from the Sun, "Dick's Big Giant Headache" (1999)
It's just so much fun ruining his life. He's like family now.
DARLA, Angel, "Offspring" (2001)
Look, this isn't a company. This is a family. There's a big difference. Families have the capacity for forgiveness.
PETER PETRELLI, Heroes, "Chapter Ten '1961'" (2009)
Some people believe that before we're born, when we're still in spirit form, we make a deal with the universe... choose the families we're born into. We have different reasons, based on the lessons we need to learn. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I chose mine.
DONNA KOZLOWSKI, Judging Amy, "Presumed Innocent" (1999)
A family is more than blood. It's about trust. About love. About those who embrace you, the real you, unconditionally.
SAMUEL SULLIVAN, Heroes, "Chapter Eight 'Shadowboxing'" (2009)
We don't have to be perfect to be good families, we just have to be together.
SANTA/SCOTT CALVIN, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (2006)
Family's a compass, in all manner and shape, but the defining ingredient is love.
SAMUEL SULLIVAN, Heroes, "Chapter Eleven 'The Fifth Stage'" (2009)
I love how kids of divorce swear they have the market cornered on family dysfunction; but let me share with you a typical Thanksgiving at the Turk household. It starts with my mother yelling at my sister for yelling at my grandmother who's yelling at the television screen, which happens to be the microwave. And then my militant brother Jubari, formerly "Bob", gives my father attitude for using the word "black," even though he's referring to the turkey, which, by the way, only got burnt because instead of turning the oven off, my bipolar Aunt Leslie tried to shove her head in it. But you know what we do? We kiss, and we hug, and we apologize for all the things we said, 'cause a month later we're gonna get together and do it again at Christmas!
DR. CHRISTOPHER TURK, Scrubs, "My Brother, Where Art Thou?" (2003)
