    • Iola: "There's nothing like the bowling alley to find decent, all-American men." Mama: "That's right. And if we hurry, you can catch em while there still sober."

    • Mama: "Oh, get a grip on yourself Iola, that man was scum! He was all over me! And if you would have given him so much as the time of day, he'd had been all over you too!" Iola: "Really?!"

    • Ralph: "You know Thelma, you remind me of my late wife Dina. You're built just like her. There's nothing I like better than getting my arms around a full figured girl."

    • Iola: "What if he turns out to be the lover-boy type?" Mama: "You can thank me later."

    • *Mama and the family are planning to go bowling, so Iola and her date can be alone at the house* Iola: Thelma, where are you going?" Mama: "Well I'm either goin' to bowl or load the cannon on the court house square."
