Parenthood (1989) Poster


Tom Hulce: Larry



  • Larry Buckman : [after he rolls from a moving car, he stands up and brushes himself off]  Hi, Dad. Dinner ready?

    Frank : [bewildered]  What was that?

    Larry Buckman : Huh? Oh, some - friends were just dropping me off.

    Frank : Friends? Friends slow down, they even stop!

    [Larry walks away chuckling as Cool catches up to him] 

  • Marilyn Buckman : Cool is adorable. Adorable! Why didn't you write us when you had a son?

    Larry Buckman : I didn't know myself until a couple of months ago. You see, a few years ago, I was living in Vegas with this girl. Showgirl. She was in that show "Elvis On Ice". Anyhow, we drifted apart, as people do in these complicated times, and then a couple of months ago, she shows up with Cool and tells me "You watch him. I shot someone. I have to leave the country." That's a parent?

  • Gil : [Gil and Larry are reuniting]  How long has it been? Three years?

    Larry Buckman : Something like that.

    Gil : You stopped wearing your turban!

    Larry Buckman : [laughs]  Yeah!

  • Larry Buckman : [approaching Grandma]  Is that Grandma?

    Frank : Yeah, she's still alive.

    Larry Buckman : [Larry and Grandma laugh and embrace]  Jeez Grandma, you got short.

    Grandma : I'm shrinking!

    Larry Buckman : [briefly chuckles]  Bummer!

  • Larry Buckman : Dad, I can't get a break. I have been so close so many times I could touch it.

    Frank : Did you ever think about getting a job?

    Larry Buckman : Oh great. Oh that is just great now. What did you always tell me? "Make your mark, don't be one of the numbers."

    Frank : You misunderstood me. You weren't listening.
