Ralph: With a divorcée, all you gotta do is establish a relationship.
Richie: With a glass of water?
Ralph: It's a start, Rich, it's a start. It gets you inside the house. Then, you charm your way into her private quarters. From there, you're just one subtle move away from paradise.
Richie: You go from a glass of water to paradise?
Richie: Mom, you're not still mad, are you?
Marion: I'm not still mad because I never was mad. You ordered this meatloaf, Richard.
Richie: You're mad. You always call me "Richard" when you're mad.
Joanie: Don't feel bad. When she's mad at me, she calls me "brat."
