Naomi: I'm not about to spend my afternoon getting all hot and sweaty over some slimy slug.
Mama: Why not? That's the way you spend your nights.
Naomi: Bubba, I think it is so romantic that children of feuding families could fall in love at first sight.
Iola: Oh yes. It's the Montagues and the Capulets all over again.
Vint: Do they live on this block too?
Naomi: She must be taking Bubba's engagement very hard.
Vint: Yeah. I haven't seen Mama this depressed since we got married.
Naomi: Bubba is very fickle. He falls in love every other day.
Vint: Yeah. He'll go out with her once, have a few laughs and then move on to somebody better.
Mama: Oh yeah? I said the same thing about you and Naomi.
Fred: They are going to Hot Sulfur Springs, and that is final!
Mama: Why?! So they can be miserable like you and Pookie.
Fred: Her name was Elaine! Pookie was the Pomeranian!
Mama: Well I never could tell the two dogs apart!
Bubba: This isn't the Middle Ages anymore.
Mama: No. If it was, you'd be fitted for a chastity belt.
Mama: You start loving thy neighbor, I'm gonna kick thy butt!
Fred: Thelma, Fred Gebhart. Can I come in?
Mama: Not by the hair on my chiny chin chin.
(Frank comes in)
Fred: I don't have time to talk about your change of life problems.
Mama says, "I'm going to wind up in Oz." Mama was talking about The Wizard Of Oz, a movie from 1939 that featured Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, and Margaret Hamilton.
Mama tells Fred Gebhart that she'd rather have Bubba date someone from the Manson family. The Manson Family was a cult led by Charles Manson that killed several people, including actress Sharon Tate, in 1969.
