    • QUOTES (1)

      • Carlotta: This could be our last chance to cut Kathleen out of the inheritance. You know, there are only so many sick, old, rich men left in the world!

        Marshall: He's so old and frail. What if she tries to jump him before the ceremony?
        Carlotta: She did it to your father, didn't she? Maybe we're gonna have to just guard his room. Let's face it, that girl is a sexual weigh station for rich, old men on the way out. She doesn't just hold the door open, she kicks them through!

        Kathleen: Need any help?
        Stanley: No, not unless you want to tell me how old that human being is you're engaged to.
        Kathleen: What's wrong? Jealous?
        Stanley: No. I just hate to see you doin' the same thing to that guy that you did to my Dad. What are you, some kind of a geriatric groupie?

        Stanley: Kathleen, if you're so in love with this Hugh, then what are you doin' in here with your lips pressed against my back?
        Kathleen: My lips had to be somewhere, don't they?

        Kathleen: Oh, Stanley, sometimes I want you so much I could just kiss you until I've sucked all the life from your lungs! How would that make you feel?
        Stanley: Scared!

        Mother B: So, you're here to marry that big girl… Uh, what's her name?
        Hugh McPheeters: I don't know. Kathleen, is it?
        Mother B: That's – that's – that's the one. She – she married my husband. You know, I still say he wasn't in love, he was in heat!

        Hugh McPheeters: The simple truth is I don't like being alone. I was married for 52 years.
        Mother B: How long ago did your wife die?
        Hugh McPheeters: Oh, three weeks ago.

        Hugh: Say, you're pretty sharp, aren't you? I thought you were supposed to be crazy.
        Mother B: I am. But sometimes this tobasco sauce just sets my circulation to rollin', and I'm overwhelmed with brilliance. It's a shame it happened this morning, I was tryin' to save it for my birthday!

        Mother B: Personally, I think young folks are a bore. They bore me to tears. They're so ill-mannered and they're so sloppy-dressin' and they bastardize the English language. Man, this Tobasco sauce has got me cookin'!

        Kathleen: That little crazy person couldn't steal anybody. And especially not from someone as young, beautiful and sexually appealing as me.
        Marshall: You may be overestimating your physical charm just a tad.
        Carlotta: That's right. If those thighs get any bigger, you can apply for statehood.

        Bootsie: You must tell us how you got engaged to Kathleen so quickly.
        Kathleen: Oh, that's a boring story. I don't think we want to hear that.
        Hugh McPheeters: No, no, I'll tell you. Kathleen was standing in front of my wife's jewelry box. Uh, I said 'What are you doing with Ethel's ring?' She said, um, 'Trying it on.'
        Bootsie: Go on.
        Hugh McPheeters: That's it.

        Hugh: Why do you do that?
        Kathleen: Do what?
        Hugh: Talk like Elizabeth Taylor in National Velvet!
        Kathleen: I didn't know that I did.
        Hugh: I noticed you only do it when you're talking to me. You know, I really don't mind you talking like a normal person, if you want to.
        Kathleen: Well, darling, if I talk differently with you, it's because you make me feel different – more feminine and protected like a little girl, your little girl!
        Hugh: Yes, but you see, you're not a little girl. You're really rather a big girl!

        Kathleen: If I thought I didn't make you happy, I'd probably just march right up to the roof and fling myself off!
        Hugh: How many floors do you have here?

        Hugh: Are you sure don't want to marry me?
        Mother B: I don't think so. I like you alright, but I don't really like you that much!
