    • QUOTES (6)

      • Carl: Mama, some of your hobbies are dangerous. I'm worried you're going to get hurt, or even die.
        Estelle: I'm not afraid of dying; I'm too busy being glad I'm alive.

      • Carl: Jogging, roller blading, bungee jumping...
        Estelle: What's your point, Carl?
        Carl: Mama, you're 84 years old, don't you think that's a little late to take up parasailing?
        Estelle: That's where you're wrong, there's nothing so cute as a granny with a chute.

        Estelle: What would I do with it?
        Carl: Well, take it to the park.
        Estelle: Carl, if I take that to the park, won't somebody steal it while I'm jogging?

      • Eddie: Waldo, do they have fraternities at your cooking school?
        Waldo: Yeah, I'm thinking about joining one—I Ate A Pie.

        Waldo: No, there's a big door right in front.

      • (talking about the school football team)
