    • (The family is discussing Vint and Naomi getting to adopt a baby) Mama: Bubba, if the Harper family did not pass with flying colors, I will dance naked with the mailman. Iola: (enters) Knock, knock. Mama: Oh, come in hon, you're just in time for lunch. Iola: Well, I don't know if I should stay, under the circumstances. Vint: What circumstances? Iola: Well, I just got off the phone with Vernilia. She thought it best if I tell you. The adoption agency turned ya down. Vint: Oh, no! Mama: Well, I am in a state of shock. Bubba: Just think how the mailman's gonna feel.

    • Vint: I am out of here. At last, I'm free. As free as the wind blows. As free as the grass grows. Free to follow my heart. (pauses) Born free. . . Mama: Oh, shut up!

    • Vint: You told me you’d keep it till I was mature enough! Mama: Hell Vinton, those chemicals have only got a fifty year shelf life.

    • Naomi: You see, they were afraid that we wouldn’t have enough time for our baby, on account of us both being so career oriented like we are. Mama: Well what turned them around? Finding out ya got dead-end jobs?

    • Naomi: The doctor says my poor baby’s been shooting blanks. Mama: Oh my Lord. I was afraid something like this would happen ever since you had that horrible dodge ball accident in the fourth grade.
