    • Naomi: Well, for your information, Vinton may not have a lick of sense, and he may be an overgrown adolescent who will never amount to anything, but I love him and I won’t hear another word against him! Vint: Oh gosh Skeeter. That’s the nicest thing anybody’s ever said to me.

    • Naomi: Why are you acting so silly when our marriage is falling apart?! Mama: I could put on a clown suit and throw a pie in your face, and I wouldn’t be acting sillier than you two! Vint: What do you mean?! Mama: Let’s face, you two belong together! You were meant for each other! Nobody else would put up with either one of ya! Naomi: Just what is the matter with us? Mama: You got an hour?! We could start with you’re lack of money, lack of prospects, lack of intelligence, and then go on to your really BIG problems!

    • *Mama gives Vint the tartar sauce, and sees Naomi sitting on the couch eating her dinner* Mama: I just happened to be in the neighborhood. I thought I'd drop by. Would you care for some tartar sauce?

    • Mama: I hope you people are good tippers.

    • Mama: Well, I think you've both seperated from your brains.
