    • Mother: So, Dorothy, I'll bet you love your mother a lot. Dorothy: Well, that depends. What has she done? Mother: It's not necessarily anything specific. It's my feeling that life here is too structured for her. Dorothy: I'm not sure I follow you. Mother: She's a stubborn, old, vindictive pack mule of a woman who won't follow the rules! Dorothy: Okay, now I'm back with you.

    • Sophia: Hello Reverend Mother, my you look Holier than thou today. Mother Superior: Save it Sister Suckup.

    • Sophia: God spoke to me today. Blanche: God spoke to you? You haven't been eating chili dogs again have you, Sophia? Sophia: That was an honest mistake and to clarify, that's when I thought God was whistling at me.

    • Dorothy: (reading Sophia's letter) I have everything I need but it's hard to get a bikini wax.

    • Dorothy: (reading Sophia's letter) Wish you were here, nobody can reach the top shelf, signed Sister Ma.
