      • Esther: Oh, Woody, you're like the son I never had.
        Cliff: What about me, Ma?
        Esther: You're the son I did have.

      • Esther: I can love you both for different reasons; Woody, I can love you because you're generous, kind, and strong, and Clifford, I can love you because I'm your biological mother and nature dictates there be a bond.

      • Cliff: Ma, when are you gonna stop taking pot shots at me?
        Esther: When it stops being fun.

      • (Norm is stuck in a window.)
        Frasier: Is that Norm? I didn't recognize you without the barstool attached.

      • Cliff: I know your wily ways. You're forgettin' I am a graduate of the Esther Clavin School of Emotional Blackmail.
        Esther: Well that and a nickel will get you a civil service job.

      • Esther: I'd have to care to be mad.

      • Norm: Your ma's in town?
        Cliff: Yup.
        Norm: Why don't you pick her up?
        Cliff: No, Normie that would set exactly the wrong tone for this visit. I know why she's here. She wants to move back in with me. But she can just forget it. I tell you. She's not going to be running my life like she did when I was in my mid-30s. No siree sir.
        Woody: I don't get it, Mr. Clavin. I thought you liked your ma a lot.
        Norm: A whole lot.
        Frasier: Too much to be healthy really.
