Jay Pritchett: Manny thinks his dad is like Superman. The truth, he's a total flake. In fact, the only way he's like Superman is that they both landed in this country illegally.
Mitchell Pritchett: Yes, my sister and I were actually a very good team. We were called "fire and nice." I was "fire," 'cause of the red hair, and Claire was "nice," because it was ironic and she wasn't.
Cameron Tucker: And Mitchell is still upset because Claire quit the team right before some meet.
Mitchell Pritchett: "Some meet"? The 13-and-under regional championships; just the Emerald City at the end of my yellow brick road.
Cameron Tucker: Wow! You did it.
Mitchell Pritchett: What?
Cameron Tucker: You made figure skating sound even gayer.
Claire Dunphy: You know how growing up we all had that voice inside our head that tells us we're not good enough? Well, mine was outside my head driving me to school.
