      • Ida: Rhoda, when do I ever make a fuss?
        Rhoda: Please! What about the time I brought Danny Brunell home? You had fifty dollars worth of cold cuts and a cake that said, "Welcome Danny." Remember? And he just came to do homework.

      • Rhoda: It's really wonderful to see a couple enjoy one another as much as you two do. Really, Mr. Gerard. (pats Joe's mother's arm) Mrs. Gerard.
        Ruth: Oh, no. Mrs. Maginess.
        Rhoda: Pardon?
        Ruth: My name is Maginness, not Gerard.
        Rhoda: Oh. But I don't…(looks puzzled) What?
        Ruth: Paul and I have been divorced for twelve years.
        Paul: Twelve wonderful years!

      • Rhoda: (to Joe) Look, when you meet my parents, if it seems like they don't get along as well as yours, it's because they're not divorced!

      • Rhoda: Now, Ma, all I said was don't make a fuss. I didn't mean that you shouldn't be yourself. C'mon, I love you the way you are—I mean, the way you were! So, that's the woman I want Joe to meet, huh?
        Ida: Okay. (shrugs, then turns to Joe) Joe, let me ask you, what went wrong with your first marriage?

      • Ida: Whatever happened to men who used to pick girls up?
        Rhoda: They're still around. They're called 'married men'.

      • Ida: It's funny, but I know all the boys Brenda dates.
        Brenda: They're all second cousins!

      • Ida: (about Rhoda) Doesn't she have a lovely sense of humor? She gets that from her father. I bet that's one of the first things that attracted you to her, right, Joe?
        Joe: Well... that and some other things.
        Ida: (laughing coyly) Well, the other things she gets from me.
