  • Quotes (8)

    • Lyle: You're not going to get rid of me easily, Karen. I'm going to stick to you like bangers to mash. Karen: You're not getting your banger anywhere near my mash.

    • Marilyn: (to Will about Ruth after her dentures came loose) Maybe if she'd stop talking for five minutes, it'd stay in. 'Oh, look at my pretty hair. Do you like my pretty hair?' Please. I've got potatoes with prettier hair.

    • Lyle: Perhaps for every kiss you give me, I could give you a piece of information. Karen: That's outrageous! You must think I'm a common whore! So, do you want my top on or off? Lyle: Well, I'm a gentleman. So why don't you keep it on, and I'll rip it off?

    • Marilyn: (about Tom) For God's sake, will you just ask him out? You don't need me. Will: I do need you. Right now the thing that Tom likes best about me is how much I pretend to love you. Marilyn: Yes, honey, but I get stuck with the mother. I mean, she's 120. She was a nurse at the battle of Gettysburg. No, I can't do it! I cannot possibly think of one more thing to say to that old bag of bones.

    • Tom: I love your wheelchair. Will: Thank you, I rented it. Tom: Is that a Roll King 2000? Marilyn: Well, if the Roll King is the cheapest one they make, then yes, it is. Will: Take a nap, mother!
