  • Quotes

    • Carl: Isn't this the second time you've gone dancing with him this week?
      Mother Winslow: So what?
      Carl: It seems that you're spending a lot of time with Fletcher.
      Mother Winslow: Carl, I am eighty years old, and he is eighty-three. We're spending so much time together because we don't have a lot of time left.

    • Mother Winslow: (coming in) Oh, I see the paper's not here yet.

      Carl: Was he there, too?
      Mother Winslow: And was he ever!
