    • QUOTES (7)

      • (Patrick entering the antenatal classroom)
        Patrick: Right. Hello there. Can't believe I've had an antenatal class around the corner all this time and never bothered to check it out.

      • Steve: There's going to be pain...
        Susan: Yes.
        Steve: Pain for which relief will be offered...
        Susan: Yes.
        Steve: But which, apparently, you won't want...
        Susan: Yes.
        Steve: This is not an intelligence test that anyone should fail!

      • Susan: The pain of childbirth is part of being a woman.
        Steve: Yes, but it's the part we can fix!

      • (To Oliver)
        Steve: Fact of life. If there's a woman you know, at some point she slept with Patrick. Welcome to the game. Your one of us now.

      • Susan: I just don't want to be pumped full of drugs…
        Steve: Since when?!

      • Sally: So I would just be backup then?
        Susan: Exactly.
        Sally: A birth partner…
        Susan: A lot of women do this. They choose their best friend….
        Sally: Oh Susan!
        Susan: Well… Steve is my best friend, obviously.
        Sally: Well… obviously, of course he is!
        Susan: But in the event that he… you know…
        Sally: … leaves you.

      • Susan: I'm packing a big one.
        Sally: A big one?
        Susan: We're talking enormous, far bigger than normal.
        Sally: I had no idea!
        Susan: I've got a whopper!
        Sally: Oh, you poor, poor thing…
        Susan: Tell me about it
        Sally: At least the baby should have no trouble getting out of it…
        Susan: It's the baby I'm talking about…!
        Sally: Oh…! The baby!
        Susan: The baby is heading to be eleven pounds!
        Sally: Oh my GOD!
        Susan: The exit itself is quite normally sized, thank you very much!
        Sally: Well, for NOW!
