    • Mrs. Garrett: There is no fire. However, in a few minutes the building could blow up.

    • Mrs. Garrett: There's no fire, don't panic! Natalie: Mrs. Garrett, let me panic, it's what I do best.

    • Blair: I even got [the tickets] at a student discount; only forty dollars each. Jo: Forty bucks! All my clothes put together cost less than that. Blair: We can see that, dear.

    • Blair: I've got a surprise. Guess what. Tootie: The captain of the football team is dying to meet you. Blair: Well yes, but that's hardly a surprise. Natalie: The captain of the football team is dying to meet me! (They all give her a look) Well tell him to forget it, cuz I want brains.

    • Jo: (In regards to the gas leak) Mrs. G, you go on ahead, I'm gonna stay here. I know I can find the problem. Blair: Jo, the captain goes down with the ship, not the boiler. Jo: Alright, who took my Stilson wrench? Mrs. Garrett: Jo, Jo, only twice in my life have I spoken in an arbitrary manner. Once when my ex-husband mortgaged our home to pay the bookie, and now. GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE OR I'LL BEAT YOU WITH MY FRYING PAN!
