      Grandma: Hello Margaret.
      Margaret: Hey what happen to your ratings box?
      Grandma: I had them take it away. It's wrong for a show to live or die by it's ratings. (Margaret nods in agreement.) A program should be judged by it's quality, it's intelligence, it's insight to the human condition. (Grandma glances at the TV) Oh, look, it's a monkey on roller skates.
      Margaret: Hey, and he's got a pie. (Margaret claps like a todler.)
      Grandma: (reading from TV Guide.) Oh, it's The Monkey and Pie Show. I love Monkey and Pie. It so good.

    • Margaret: (speaking to Ruthie and Gloria) Did you here that? See ya at my place. Before that meant 'Come sit on the couch and have my Mom stare at you'. Now it means 'You're not getting away till I eat desert off your chest'.

    • Margaret: (talking about a cute repair guy) Figures the one time you want to see a repair guys butt cheeks and he's wearing a belt.
