    • Dorothy: Everything's going to be fine, my mother called my lawyer boyfriend! (Ken enters in his clown costume) We're going to prison!

    • Rose: They're going to go right out and do it again. We didn't make a difference at all. Blanche: Maybe we weren't able to save all the dolphins but I bet we did saw some while we were out there protesting. And the next time you see a school of them swimming by you can think 'they're here because of me'.

    • Rose: Blanche, do you have any idea how many dolphins are killed in those tuna nets each year? Blanche: Fine, no more tuna fish. Rose: Blanche you hate tuna fish. Blanche: Fine, no more tuna fisher men.
