    • Joanne: Everyone says I haven't changed a bit!
      Mama: Oh really? Ya looked 70 back then too, huh?

    • Mama: Can't anybody in this family ever say anything nice?! (Looks at Naomi's food) Good Lord, don't tell me you're serving this slop to human beings!

    • Iola: Oh, come on Thelma, it'll give you a chance to show them how great you still look.
      Mama: Well now that is true, I have kept my figure. Course, I'm not the type to gloat.
      Iola: Oh, well, it wouldn't be gloating. It'd be more like giving them a personal goal they can set for themselves.
