    • QUOTES (6)

      • Robbie: So, you're making a new scent.
        Charlene: I got to. My real scent attracted a janitor.
        Robbie: At least you'd have someone to clean up your room.

      • Charlene: Look, my life is flashing before me. And it's your life, Mom. Do something!

      • Fran: Remember, Earl, when I got my scent?
        Earl: Oh, you bet. You smelled exactly like a new car.
        Charlene: You were attracted to Mom 'cause she smells like a car?
        Earl: A new car.

      • Fran: I can't believe they'd put that on a kid's show. What are they thinking?
        Baby: Buy me the puppy rifle.
        Ethel: That's what they're thinking.

      • Charlene: Once I'm married, Mom and Dad won't be making all my decisions like telling me where to go and what to think. I'll have a husband to do that.
        Robbie: Good plan. Now, if you could just get someone to chew your food and breathe for you, you wouldn't have to lug that pesky brain around.

      • Mindy: Standing in the hall waiting for some boy to get wind of you. It's pretty undignified.
        Charlene: Yeah, you're right. So what if I sat on the hood of your car and you drove me around town?
        Mindy: Ooh, cool. Meet you outside.
