    • Rose: (responding to Sophia's decision to pass along the sacred family recipe to her) I'm the queen? I'm the queen! Dorothy: You're also the fool, so we're saving a lot on payroll.

    • Blanche: You know I'd love to spend the day with Oreo but... Rebecca: Aurora, Mama, Aurora. Blanche: Aurora, I have such a block against that name.

    • Sophia: Dorothy, you'll have to do the Dance of the Virgins by yourself. Dorothy: Oh come on, Ma. Sophia: You remember, it's just like the bunny hop except you have your legs crossed. Dorothy: Ma you're making that up! Sophia: I'm adding to it. Once a year the women of my village gathered for this festival, they danced, they laughed, they ate, it was a chance for mothers and daughters to be together. (to Rebecca) Don't do this to your mother, Rebecca, don't let your daughter grow up never knowing her grandma. I'm 85 and I'm still thankful for all the memories I have of my grandchildren.

    • Jason: (acting for Taming of the Shrew) Come, sit on me! Blanche: (breaking part) Ooh! (resumes part) Asses were made for that and so were you. Jason: Women were made for childbearing and so were you.

    • Sophia: When was the last time you had sex? Dorothy: Ma, that's a very personal question! Sophia: That long, eh?
