  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Ally: (about the gift that her aunt gave her) A necklace!
      Debra: Oooh, very pretty! What are these, rosary beads?
      Ray: Hey, look at this, prayer cards. Hey, it's a St. Jude rookie card!

    • Ray: You should have watched the movie with us.
      Debra: Oh, I've seen it a million times.
      Ray: You know, it's almost as if the hills really are alive.

    • Jennifer: Hey, Debra, do you have an alarm clock? I want to make sure I'm up for the 6:30 Mass in the morning.
      Ray: 6:30? Is God even up then?

    • Ray: You know, while your sister's here, we should all try to be a little more, you know, holy.
      Debra: Great. How about we start with you going to Mass every Sunday?
      Ray: Let's not go overboard.

    • Debra: I want to be alone.
      Jennifer: Hey, I'm willing to hold up my vows for a minute. You want a piece of me?

    • Debra: That's not what's bothering me. What's bothering me is that...you weren't around. And I was okay, because I thought that you would...you know. So I've been waiting, and now you're leaving for good. I want a sister! Not a sister sister, but a sister!

    • Frank: So, uh, Sister Jennifer, uh, may I ask you a question that's been on my mind for quite some time?
      Jennifer: Sure, Frank.
      Frank: It's a rare opportunity for me to talk to someone of your vocation, which leads me to my question. What do you gals wear under there?

    • Jennifer: I know you can't believe it, but I happen to be serious about this.
      Debra: Why?
      Jennifer: What? Why am I becoming a nun?
      Debra: Yeah, why don't you tell me?
      Jennifer: Because I want to be better than you!
      Debra: What?
      Jennifer: (smiles) Yeah, that's why we all become nuns.
