      • (Trevor, Suzanne's friend, makes a pass at Mary Jo)
        Mary Jo: Excuse me, but I don't like to have the back of my neck kissed before breakfast. Especially by somebody who is too dumb to appreciate a woman like Suzanne Sugarbaker. Just who do you think that you're talking about? This is no two-bit singles' cruise barnacle. This is the Rolls Royce of females who happens to have more beauty titles than you have teeth. And let me tell you something else, I consider it an honor just to guard her brassiere and I am not even a man.

      • (The women have been forced into sharing bunk beds)
        Mary Jo: Why are you so quiet down there, Julia?
        Julia: I'm just trying to say my prayers.
        Charlene: What were you praying for?
        Julia: If you must know, I was praying, number one - that you all would let me go to sleep, number two - that I'm not seated next to Club Mel at breakfast, and number three - I was thanking God that I did not grow up with a mother who wore a leopard skin head band, white see through t-shirt and glued rhinestones to her fingernails.

      • Julia: Mary Jo, what on Earth is the matter now?
        Mary Jo: It's this stupid dress of Suzanne's. This is so typical. It's just like her to hang this by my bed so it won't get wrinkled in the closet. As if I'm so little it won't bother me. She does this kind of thing to me all the time.
        Julia: Why don't you just take it down?
        Mary Jo: Actually, this fascinates me. These bra cups are huge. It's kinda like this is the corral where Suzanne keeps her bosom, and I'm the hired hand who guards 'em while she takes 'em out on a midnight ride.

      • Suzanne: Well, you can count me out. I'm not going on any single's cruise. And I'm certainly not interested in putting up with a bunch of dorky men in bad toupees and polyester suits.
