For most '90s kids, there is only one thing that we know Alan Thicke for, and that's Growing Pains. But since the news that Thicke has passed away at the age of 69 after a heart attack, it seems like the only thing that can comfort those of us who grew up watching Jason Seaver lead his family through thick and thin on the classic sitcom are some classic Alan Thicke quotes from Growing Pains .
Jason Seaver was never one to throw out the cleverest bon mot or the most sophisticated argument, but he always knew the most dad-like thing to say in any given moment. And for so many pop culture fans, that's exactly who Thicke will always be: the dad who always knew better, but let his kids keep talking as if they had all the answers, until they tumbled right into the fact that they totally didn't.
Thicke will certainly be missed by his fans and his family, including his wife, Tanya Callau, and his three children, including singer Robin Thicke. Luckily, fans and his family have a whole catalogue of great quotes to remember him by. Even if none of them are likely to ever find themselves on at Etsy mug.
