    • Julia: Bernice, I don't know exactly what your problem is. I don't know if your medication is off, or if your arterial flow has just completely stopped. But I do know this When we go back on the air, if you do not correct this; I am personally going to pick you up and throw you across the room. Bernice: We're back, continuing our segment on Decorating Call Girls. I've been just been talking to Julia Sugarbaker about the role of Madame in the design world.

    • (When the hooker Bernice booked on her show cancelled) Anthony: We tried that, but Monette and Atlanta's better class of prostitutes have gone to Las Vegas for a convention. Consequently, in Bernice's hour-of-need, Atlanta is suffering a severe shortage. Now we were out until three in the morning driving around in her cadillac looking for as she put it 'fresh meat'. I nearly wrapped the car around a post when she leaned out the window and yelled, 'Work it, Girl! How'd you like to strut your stuff on public access?!'

    • Charlene: I have on Bill's underwear. Julia: Charlene!!! Charlene: I know, I know. I'm so ashamed. I can't believe I'm sitting her in light blue jockey shorts. I can't help it. My washing machine broke down and I couldn't get to the laundry mat. And Olivia was up with the crup all night so I didn't have time to rinse anything out in the sink and well, I certainly couldn't go with no underwear; it's too cold. It finally boiled down to a choice between Pampers and this. I feel so weird. Anthony: Hey Julia. Charlene: Anthony! What are you doing? I didn't know you were over there! Anthony: I was looking for some sugar. (laughing) I know you feel stupid 'cuz I heard what you were wearing. But you don't have to worry because your secret is safe with me. Charlene: Thank you. But since you're being so understanding, maybe you can tell me something. Do you find that front flap annoying? Anthony: I said your secret was safe. I did NOT say I wanted to share grooming tips.
