    • QUOTES (18)

      • Naomi: Well, for your information, Vinton may not have a lick of sense, and he may be an overgrown adolescent who will never amount to anything, but I love him and I won't hear another word against him!
        Vint: Oh gosh Skeeter. That's the nicest thing anybody's ever said to me.

      • Naomi: Why are you acting so silly when our marriage is falling apart?!
        Mama: I could put on a clown suit and throw a pie in your face, and I wouldn't be acting sillier than you two!
        Vint: What do you mean?!
        Mama: Let's face, you two belong together! You were meant for each other! Nobody else would put up with either one of ya!
        Naomi: Just what is the matter with us?
        Mama: You got an hour?! We could start with you're lack of money, lack of prospects, lack of intelligence, and then go on to your really BIG problems!

      • *Mama gives Vint the tartar sauce, and sees Naomi sitting on the couch eating her dinner*
        Mama: I just happened to be in the neighborhood. I thought I'd drop by. Would you care for some tartar sauce?

      • Mama: I hope you people are good tippers.

      • Mama: Well, I think you've both seperated from your brains.

      • Mama: There's nothing like looking a poor fish with no insides to make your own problems seem small.

      • Vint: So what happened?
        Mama: Nothing. Day before I was supposed to start working, your daddy showed up on his knees, begging for forgiveness. So I took him back. I never could resist a man in that position.

      • Mama: Vinton is like a little, lost soul. I haven't seen him this upset since they canceled Howdy Doody.

      • Mama: This thing looks like a Smurf with tentacles.

      • Mama: Well, for a few days I was pretty broken up. Maybe you remember it. I was real crabby with you kids.
        Vint: Well, that could have been anytime.

      • Vint: You mean he just up and walked out?
        Mama: Yep. Left me a note, saying he was lookin' for something more. Who the hell wasn't?

      • Mama: This place is a pig sty Vinton. Why don't you pick it up?
        Vint: No Mama. I want it to stay just exactly the way Naomi left it.

      • Vint: I'll never be able to face a large-mouth bass again.
        Mama: Still thinking of Naomi, huh?

      • *Vint is crying after Naomi left him*
        Mama: Now baby, that's all right. You still got all of us.
        *Vint looks around and starts crying harder*

      • Vint: I've wanted this SP2000 all my life and you're not making me take it back.
        Naomi: Well, fine. I hope it keeps you warm on those long, lonely nights ahead because I SURE WON'T!
        Mama: Well, I bet the neighbors are just lovin' this.
        Iola: Oh never mind the neighbors. Go ahead you two!

      • *Naomi tells Vint to take the fishing pole back*
        Vint: You got no right to tell me what to do! That's Mama's job!

      • Mama: This is going to be the only meal I ever walked off before I even ate it.

      • Vint: Now hold on. I resent that lack of intelligence crack! I think Naomi's as bright as a button.
        Naomi: You do!?
        Vint: Sure, compared to me.
        Mama: Compared to you, this crappy is a Rhode scholar!
