    • Mama: Oh yeah? Just what makes you think you're so tough?
      Big Joan: Ya see that? *points to a scar of her arm* I got that in a brawl in Taiwana.
      Mama: Oh, well big deal. Ya see that? *points to a mark on her arm* I got that fron a steam iron set on linen.
      Big Joan *lowers her shirt a bit*: Knife wound!
      Mama: Dish pan elbow!
      Big Joan *lifts her up a bit*: Here's where I got gorged by a rampaging bull.

      Waiter: Well, I can see she's a little bit confused. I'll come back later.
      Mama: Well, comin' here has certainly cheered me up. That bozo's ready to have me declared brain dead.

    • Mama: I could have sworn I set that oven on 350.
