    • 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.
