    • Eunice: All we got is a one room studio with a broken hotplate and a bed that comes out of the wall. Mama: Move up in the world, have you?

    • Bubba: I heard from Florida State. Naomi: Oh Bubba, don’t tell me they rejected you. Bubba: Oh, they said I should consider a school less academically demanding, like bartender school.

    • Mama: Lord, how in the world could I have raised such a hateful, unloving mother? Vint: Hey Mama. Mama: What the hell do you want?

    • *Iola is saying how she found her accordion* Iola: It was all boxed up underneath a pile of bricks in the back of a garage. I wonder what made Daddy store it way back there. Naomi: Must’ve been love of music.

    • *Vint is describing his alarm system* Vint: Highly sophisticated, yet simple enough for a child to use. Mama: Well, it’s in the right hands.

    Notes (1)

    • This is the last time we see the character of Allan Hanson, even though his previous two appearances indicated that he and Thelma might have been forming a possible relationship.

    Trivia (2)

    • When Mr. Hanson first started teaching and Mama wanted to impress him, she said that one of the things she could lose was her B average. But it this episode she has gotten straight A's. Did Mama somehow do extra work to get that all up, or does dating your teacher pay off?

    • If Mama was valdictorian, nobody in Bubba's class was able to maintain a straight A average? It seems a bit unlikely that not one student could keep their grades so high.
