      • Esther (After Big Money Grip told her Lamont is his son): God shall smite thee ... but I can't wait! Fred, why don't we both beat the hell outta him right now!

      • Esther: Go on, I'm all ears!
        Fred: No, you're all mouth, but listen anyway!

      • Esther: My sister was pure as the driven snow!
        Fred: Yeah, but who's doing the driving?

      • Esther: Let's get this over with Fred Sanford. I don't like being alone in a house with an unmarried man.
        Fred: Esther, if we were alone, on a raft, in the middle of the ocean, I'd rather kiss an octopus in the mouth!
        Esther: I wouldn't want you to kiss me. I'd rather kiss a snaggletoothed jackass.
        Fred: Well I'll call St. Louis and get you one!
        Esther: Aw, go kiss your octopus.
        Fred: Look, neither one of us has to worry about nothing like that. Now, I want to have a personal conversation with you about Elizabeth.
        Esther: My sister Elizabeth?
        Fred: No, your brother Elizabeth. (audience laughs) Yes your sister, and my wife.

      • Fred: You sure are nutty, Grady! They ought to call you "Nutty Grady!"

      • Lamont: Aunt Esther....
        Fred: and Grip?
        Both: Ewwww!

      • Esther (to Grip): Just tell the truth, Sucka. For you know the truth shall make you free ... that's John!
        Fred: Yeah, and don't tell no lie, 'cause a lie can find you dead ... that's Fred!
