    • Karen: (to Olivia) Seems like just yesterday I was holding you in my arms and then frantically passing you off to a nanny.

    • Jack: I kind of like eating dinner without Grace. There's enough for seconds and nobody stabs my hand with a fork when reaching for a lamb chop.

    • Rosario: This year, I'm making your figgy pudding with rat poison and Ajax. Karen: But no raisins.

    • Rosario: Oh, Miss Karen can I stop for a minute? My back is hurting. Karen: Keep going, I didn't hear anything snap.

    • Olivia: What are you doing? Karen: I'm hanging out with my step-daughter. Olivia: You're embarassing me! And that's hard to do. I was dropped off at school by a 700-pound man.
