Ned (referring to his mother): If I tell you something, you promise not to tell her?
Melinda: No, I do not keep secrets from your mom and neither should you.
Ned: It might be about a ghost.
Melinda: Oh...maybe your mom doesn't need to know about that.
(In front of Lisa's house, waiting for Ned)
Delia: No, actually I apologized to him. Yeah, he was right. It was just very hard for me to think of him dating.
Melinda: Is that why you're looking this way? 'Cause you literally can't face the idea of Ned having a girlfriend?
Delia: No, I'm trying to give them their privacy. This is me...letting go. So what are they doing, are they kissing?
Melinda: No, she just hit him.
Delia: Oh thank God.
Melinda: But it was full of sexual tension.
(Delia suddenly turns around and...)
Delia: NED!! Came on let's go, we're late for practice!!!
(Ned gets scared and Melinda laughs)
Delia (to Melinda): What? We are.
Delia: Lisa where is your Mom?
Lisa: I've just called her, she should be here any minute.
Delia (to Lisa outside the police station): Well, I don't know what she is going to do with you but I can tell you Ned is going to pay for his share of the damages. Since both of you were in the back seats, it's kind of hard to tell who is at fault.
(Talking about Ned's first date.)
Delia: I am trying so hard not to be over-protective.
Melinda: Well, what is there to protect him from? He's on a date.
Delia: "What's there to protect him from?" Are you kidding? He could get his heart broken, he could catch a disease. And what do I know about this girl, right? She could be into drugs, she could be into self mutilation, she could be into… animal sacrifice!
Melinda: Animal sacrifice?
Delia: You know what I mean.
Melinda: Not really. No.
