    • Suzanne: I'm saying, I want you to take your big knockers and hit the road, if you wouldn't mind. Ursula: Well, I guess there's only room for one queen bee around here. Suzanne: That's right. And I'm afraid I'm it. Ursula: Well, I'll just be getting my things. Suzanne: I'll write you a check. And don't worry, I won't tell anyone about our little talk. I'll just say that you were called home to Denmark. Ursula: Right. (As she leaves the room) Suzanne (putting her tiara on her head and toasts toward the bedrooms.....) Well, girls . . . happy vacation!!

    • (Suzanne is giving last minute instructions to Anthony on how to care for her pig.) Anthony: I'll feed her, I'll bathe her, I'll even walk her -- but I'm not taking a pig to the Dairy Queen!!

    • (The girls are discussing the au pair, Ursula) Mary Jo: Well, I don't know if we could compete with her even if we wanted to. Suzanne: Speak for yourself. Mary Jo: Suzanne, I don't want to hurt your feelings, but I saw her bra hanging on the towel rack in the bathroom. Suzanne: So? Mary Jo: So you are not top dog anymore. Suzanne: How do you know? Mary Jo: Because I can get my whole head in one side of hers. Charlene: Mary Jo!! You put her bra on your head? Mary Jo: I couldn't help it! You know how that fascinates me. Suzanne's cup fits me like a beanie, but Ursula's covered my whole face. Suzanne: Well, Mary Jo. This just helps to point out the main problem that you people have that I've been talking about. You are not competitive! I mean, here you have this gorgeous girl who gets up at 5:30, cooks your boyfriend's breakfast, then goes jogging with him. And what do you do? You're in the bathroom trying her brassiere on your head! I mean, you're as impressed with her as he is!

    • Mary Jo: (referring to Ursula's well-endowed chest) I guess we know where they get the name 'au pair'.
