Grandma Dottie: Did someone say, "April?"
Beth Burns: Yes, Grandma, she's your other granddaughter.
Grandma Dottie: I know, I thought she was dead.
April Burns: Well, the cranberries were easy. I just had to open the can.
Eugene: [needing support from his wife] Evette?
April Burns: [sensing Eugene's outrage] What? Oh, come on. Everyone likes it from the can.
Eugene: No one likes it from the can.
Joy Burns: I'm giving you a choice. You can either let me study the map, or you can rely on my uncanny sense of direction. Which will it be? Timmy Burns: Uncanny sense of direction!
Joy Burns: Okay.
[silence]
Joy Burns: Where are we?
Man in Mohair Sweater: You know it's funny; my mother was a mean woman, too. Nasty. There wasn't a nice bone in her body. She smoked non-stop, cheated at cards and she complained every day of her life. And you know what? There's nothing I wouldn't do for a chance to spend more time with her.
April Burns: I'm the first pancake.
Evette: What do you mean?
Eugene: She's the one you're supposed to throw out.
Joy Burns: I don't know why I'm so hard on you Beth, when you've always been the daughter of my dreams. We're almost the same person, except I don't have your weight problems and you're making the same mistakes I did and I wish you would make your own.
Bobby: You didn't even know my mother and I pity you for that.
Eugene: You made boxed stuffing?
April Burns: Yeah. What's wrong with boxed stuffing?
Evette: Nothing! I'm sure it's a fine brand.
Jim Burns: Just remember everybody. April is cooking.
Joy Burns: We'll need an extra dozen glazed.
Joy Burns: [Joy is smoking marijuana in a convenience store bathroom] Honey, roll it tighter next time.
Timmy Burns: Sorry, mom.
