    • Jaime: (hands an envelope to Chris) Voila! Chris: How much is in here? Jaime: Oh, round figures, about, uh, two thousand, six hundred and twenty four dollars and fifteen cents. Now the next bank is just down the street— Chris: No, no, no, this'll be enough. Jaime: I don't think so, Mom, 'cause once you get there, you're gonna hafta live, y'know. Chris: (firmly) No. Jaime, I didn't come here to take all your money. Jaime: Well, it's our money. You paid for the tennis lessons.

    • Jaime: Awfully nice of you to drop all the nation's problems and come over here, Oscar. Were you afraid I had blown a fuse, literally? Oscar: I usually carry a spare for my bionic friends. Jaime: Y'know, I feel like I am getting Special Treatment #5. First, you relax the subject, and then you gently tell her she needs a room with mattress wallpaper.

    • Jaime: Mothers aren't like used cars. You don't just change models on a whim! Helen: You mean I'm locked into the job? Jaime: No, I mean you're stuck with it. And don't tell me you haven't been known to think along those lines yourself. Remember the time I... uh... got a D in Math? Or the time I... uh... bumped the fender of your brand new car? You don't get to share those joys with anybody. Helen: Is that a promise? Jaime: You bet.

    • Jaime: Mom, do you remember how I used to fall out of trees all the time? Ann: Yeah. Jaime: Watch this. (Jaime jumps up into a tree, then back down, then goes for a bionic run) Jaime: Well, here I am, your little girl, with a four-on-the-floor and a 3.7 differential!

    • Helen: Oscar and Rudy asked me to keep an eye on you. Jaime: (outraged) "Keep an eye on" me?! Helen: Yes! So they might catch any new problem early, for your own good! Jaime: That's really cute. Now they've got you spying on me. Helen: Spying?! We all care for you! We don't want anything to happen to you! Jaime: Well, I'll make that unanimous.

It includes a photo of Jaime's mother, but the woman looks absolutely nothing like Barbara Rush, who plays her here.
