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.

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.
