  • Quotes

    • Lenny: I cheated on a hygiene quiz in ninth grade, but I don't know if that counts because I failed. I think I'm okay through the tenth grade because I was out that year with ringworm.
      Anne Marie: I better go.
      Lenny: Oh, you can't catch it from me, now. I washed with that yellow soap.

    • Shirley: Lenny's talking to Anne Marie.
      Laverne: He's confessing!

    • Laverne: I just said "you bet your buns" to a nun! Does that count as a sin?

    • Shirley: She went to Chicago and became a nun. I stayed in Milwaukee and became a bimbo.
      Laverne: You're no bimbo, Shirl.
      Shirley: Yes, I am. Compared to her, I'm a bimbo.
      Laverne: She's a nun. Compared to her, Eleanor Roosevelt's a bimbo.
