Lip:We're that extra special Gallagher kinda fucked up.

Kev:Christ I'm tired of being poor.

Lip:Look my mom's a bipolar drug addict who split years ago, my dad's a drunk, and the cops just hauled Fiona off to jail, okay? Look I'm the only thing that passes for a responsible adult that you're gonna find. Now how's Liam?
