  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Tabitha Lenox (About Endora Lenox): But she's just a wee child. She's only just mastered toilet training.

    • Julian Crane: You know, when we're young, we make mistakes and we regret them for a lifetime. My biggest mistake was allowing my father to convince me to let you go, because without you to help me grow, I became this twisted, malevolent caricature of a man. And then, when you let me back into your life, well, for the first time in many years, I felt human. And we were back together for a very short period, you know, a few months, but in those months I grew, and it's very hard to put into words, but it's as if you searched the arid plains of my soul and you found joy buried there. I mean, it was -- it was half buried and half dead, but you found it and you freed it. You made it bloom. You made me feel like a whole man. And then you left me, and I know that you hate me, but you must believe that I love you. I love you so and I will always love you. I will go to my grave with your name on my lips.

    • Tabitha Lenox: Me, Tabitha Lenox, forsake the dark side? All that sweetness and sugar must have turned your brains to mush.
      Esmeralda: Could you play with Endora while Tabitha and I have a little chat? Maybe a nice board game.
      Norma: Oh, me too. I used to beat daddy silly.
      Edna: Oh, hey, elder abuse ain't funny.

    • Edna Wallace: Look, tabby. We will do anything to stay out of that black hole basement. You have no idea what it's been like.
      Tabitha Lenox: Oh, I know exactly what it's like down there. Who do you think suggested the fiery coals on the floor? Or the razor blades in the pillows on the bunk beds? Or the sulfuric acid in the bathtub, who?
      Norma Bates: Oh, Martha Stewart you're not. We're gonna have a blast, doll face. Auntie Norma and auntie Edna, right here with you forever and ever.
      Edna Wallace: Or else.
      Tabitha Lenox: All right, all right. If you two addlepated birdbrains are going to be temporary house guests here, then you're going to have to earn your keep. That means cooking, cleaning, yard work, burying the bodies of any salesmen who happen to come to the door.

    • Norma Bates (To Tabitha Lenox): Break open the champagne, Hagitha. Your daughter's abso-bloomin-lutely amazing!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Edna Wallace: Why, if she can beat the demons of the dark side, she can do anything. Sweetums, you know that I have always loved you. So, do me a teensy little favor here, and make me look like Paris Hilton before she went into the slammer. Give me a couple of billions. And a mansion. Oh! And a subscription to DirecTV!
      Norma Bates: Woo! DirecTV! And hi-def television in every room, yes!
      Tabitha Lenox: I'm well aware that DirecTV is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but please don't try to force my daughter to use her powers for your own personal gain.

      Yet another in a series of allusions to the fact that NBC canceled the show, and that DirecTV picked up the show from the dead.
