    • QUOTES (6)

      • J.J.: Listen, the baby ain't mine! Henrietta did a crazy thing before we met in a moment of passion. I didn't even know it happened until I noticed that her $100-figure was becoming a victim of inflation!

      • James: Why do we have to be the ones that find a solution? Let her parents find it.
        Florida: Allright, we'll leave it up to her parents, and if they demand a wedding, fine. We'll split the costs, they can provide the shotgun and we'll bring the shells.

      • Florida: Thelma, since it'll be a little while before dinner, why don't you take Henrietta into your room and play some of your new records?
        Thelma: I don't have any new records.
        James: Then hum the ones you don't have.
        Thelma: Oh right, come on Henrietta, I got a lot of albums I bet you never heard.
        Henrietta: I wouldn't be so sure of that, Thelma, I do get around.

      • James: She's trying to trap J.J. into marrying her because she knows he's a good catch.
        Florida: James, J.J. is my son too and I love him, but I don't consider an unemployed teenager to be a good catch.

      • Florida: J.J. would have to bring home the bacon, so why would she want someone who can't even catch the pig?

      • James: These days, if a girl gets pregnant, that's her problem. She does it by herself.
        Florida: James, there are a lot of things that a girl can do by herself, but getting pregnant ain't one of them.
