Quotes (7)

  • Rose: Impersonating Charlie was the meanest thing you've ever done to me. Sophia: Not true, what about the time I buried you up to your neck in sand at the beach and charged the kids a quarter to let them throw baseballs at you? Rose: Well I can't hold that against you, that was for charity. Sophia: Charity, right.

  • Sophia (after pretending to be Charlie) What happened? Rose: Sophia, the most amazing thing just happened. Charlie was in your body! Sophia: Really? If I'd known he was coming I would have tidied up a bit.

  • Sophia: (to Dorothy) That's how you talk to your mother? Drop that in a letter to your father - how sassy you've gotten since menopause!

  • Sophia: You're training him by letting him wear your underwear? Didn't I see this movie before? A young woman coaches a baseball player and he goes to live with the Indians? What was it called, "Dances with Bulls"? Dorothy: Ma, you're confusing "Bull Durham" with "Dances with Wolves". Sophia: So what? You get to see Kevin Costner's buns in both of them.

  • Sophia: What're you doing? Dorothy: If you must know, I'm writing a letter to Pop. Sophia: Same pop who's been dead for 17 years? Dorothy: Yep. Sophia: There's nothing sadder than your child losing it before you do.

  • Sophia: It's past your bedtime. Dorothy: Ma, I'm over 60 years old, I can stay up as late as I want. Sophia: No, the agreement was when you were 65 you could stay up as late as you want.

  • Dorothy: (To Sophia, after Rose explains to Dorothy that the reason she gave the ring back to Miles was because Charlie "spoke" to her in Sophia's body) You're a horrible little person. Sophia: Oh, come on. Like you've never pretended to be possessed by someone's dead husband for a couple of laughs. Dorothy: You know, you have really ruined Rose's relationship with Miles. Sophia: If you could have seen her face when I talked like Charlie-- I almost wet myself!
