Sarah: “C’mon Kevin! We’re Walkers. Let’s do what the Walkers do best.”
Kevin: “Get Drunk?”
Justin: “Explain this to me as if I was slow.”
Kevin: “As if?”
Kitty: “It’s true what they say about tequila making everything better.”
Sarah: “Nobody says that.”
Kitty: “Well when I’m the first lady, I’ll say it and it will catch on.”
Kitty: “Operation puppy is proceeding as planned.”
Robert: “Do we have to call it that?”
Kitty: “Operation shotgun wedding because the condom broke just doesn’t have the same ring.”
Brothers and Sisters is one of the best family shows on the ABC network because it approaches the family bond from a different perspective. A lot of shows in the past have focused on the difficulties of raising children as they are growing up. However, Brothers and Sisters shows just how difficult it can be for a parent to hold the family together even when all of the children are adults and have lives of their own. Another reason why Brothers and Sisters is unique is because it demonstrates that parenting does not stop just because the children grow up. Brothers and Sisters is a good example of how parents sometimes play an even larger role in their children’s lives as adults than they did while they were raising them.
