"Blood means you're related, it doesn't mean you're family." - Boy Meets World

"They say that from the instant he lays eyes on her, a father adores his daughter. Whomever she grows up to be, she is always to him that little girl in pigtails. She makes him feel like Christmas. In exchange, he makes a secret promise not to see the awkwardness of her teenage years, the mistakes she makes, or the secrets she keeps." - Everwood

"I have this poster hanging in my living room, Paul. Of course I'm upset. And the only reason that it's hanging there is because you took him to see that movie, and for one day, that boy felt close to his father. He felt loved and appreciated. And the sad part is that there was only one of those days. Because in my book, the day that he didn't feel that way should be the unique one. Fix it." - One Tree Hill

"I'm a full-time dad. I'm a working parent. I'm a mother and a father. I'm a guy who reads parenting books and cookbooks before I go to sleep. I spend my weekends buying tutus. I'm learning to sew. I'm Mr. Napkin Head!" - the holiday

"If there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's that you make your own family."

"Family. There is nothing more important. They're the ones who show up when we are in trouble. The ones who push us to succeed. The ones who help keep our secrets." - Desperate Housewives

"The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don't. But, in the end, they're the people you always come home to. Sometimes it's the family you're born into and sometimes it's the one you make for yourself." -Sex and the City

"Children come into the world with their own agendas. Some to brighten our days, some to test our patience, some to give us purpose, some to take care of us. Yes, when they come children change everything." - Desperate Housewives

"There's an old proverb that says you can't choose your family. You take what the fates hand you. And like them or not, love them or not, understand them or not, you cope. Then there's the school of thought that says the family you're born into is simply a starting point. They feed you, and clothe you, and take care of you until you're ready to go out into the world and find your tribe." - Grey's Anatomy

"Family should always hug, regardless of how they feel about each other." - Desperate Housewives

"And then all of a sudden, oh, it seemed so strange to me: How we went from something's missing to a family. Lookin' back all I can say about all the things he did for me is I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be." - Brad Paisley, "he didn't have to be"

"It's a wonderful feeling when your father becomes not a god but a man to you--when he comes down from the mountain and you see he's this man with weakness. And you love him as this whole being, not as a figurehead." - Robin Williams

"Super-successful parents expect nothing less from their offspring. And when it comes to college, that means the Ivies. It's more than just getting into college, it's setting a course for the rest of your life. And those who aren't legacies are no exception. When parents have sacrificed for their children, what kid would want to let them down?" - Gossip Girl

"It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you." - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

"We're all strangers to our parents; they love us, but they don't really know us. And sometimes before we get a chance to know them, they're gone. And then you can't ask them all the things you want to know about turnips or turkey gizzards or what they were like when they were young. Then you never can know them, not really. Because it's too late." - Dawson's Creek
