      • Lorna: Ohh, Jesus, I think I'm gonna have an episode.
        (coughs)
        You don't want me having an episode. I have low sugar right now. Hey, pass me a cookie. You got a cookie up there?
        Cab Driver: I do. I do. I have a cracker.
        Lorna: Okay. Cracker?
        Cab Driver: Yeah.
        Lorna: A cracker's not a cookie. This guy thinks a cracker's a cookie. Oh, my. Ugh, it's like if I said I needed a baseball bat and you handed me a sandwich. My God, it's like talking to a bag full of hammers with you. Christ on a cross, is that guy wearing a wedding dress?

      • Hazel: Anyway, Ezekiel... sweatheart, you have got to put yourself out there. I made our Donovan go on the online. Plenty of "M for M" and "B.Y.O.B." He could be hooking up 24/7 hours a day.
        Ron: Hazel!
        Hazel: Lots of people have sex, Ron! Not us, of course. No "W for M" action here. Ron's prostate's swollen bigger than a cantaloupe. Isn't it, Ron?

      • Hazel: I wish our son would give us a baby. He doesn't... he doesn't have a "life partner." (winks)

        Hazel: (giggles) Oh, the little woman. Yeah I did. I said, "He's gay."
        (stops giggling)
        Are you gay?
        Ron: Hazel!
        Hazel: I can ask a question, Ron! You know what they say at the P-FLAGs, "There's no 'I' in Pride." Huh.
        (pauses)
        They say it different.

      • Oscar Wilde: Hello, I'm Oscar Wilde, raconteur, wag and renowned aesthete. If you like banter and breasteses, witticisms and titticisms, then you'll love my newest video collection...

        Cab Driver: No, no, they got the street blocked off for the Gay Pride Parade.
        Lorna: Gay Pride Parade?! What the hell's the Gay Pride Parade?! That sounds like a fake thing!
        Cab Driver: No, ma'am, it's a parade for gay people to celebrate gay pride. It runs all the way down 5th Street, all the way to the Village.
        Lorna: Well, how much pride could they possibly have?! 50 streets of pride?!

      • Hazel: You should come over to the condo when you get off work for brunch and meet our Donovan. Oh, he's marvelous! He's got excellent posture, and... and beautiful teeth...
        and, F.Y.I., his profile says he's got no gag reflex.

      • Tranny Nanny Chocolate Puddin': Look here, you little Bride O' Chucky, we do not communicate with forks.
        (pulls fork out of the mother's leg)
        We use words. If you want to hurt yo' mama, you got to read her. Like you say, "Yo mama so dumb, she couldn't alphabetize a M&M!"
        Nanny Tranny Heaven: Or like... "Nanny Puddin's so slutty, she like AOL... the first hundred hours is free." What?

    • ALLUSIONS (6)

      • Nanny 911 and Supernanny
        The "Tranny 911" sketch is a parody of the hit reality series, Nanny 911 and Supernanny, which both feature proper English nannies helping American families deal with their unruly children. The title of the sketch, "Tranny 911" is a play on words of the series, Nanny 911, while a look-a-like of Jo Frost, the nanny and star of Supernanny, is seen at the beginning of the sketch, saying, "Bloody Hell!" when she is unable to handle an unruly child.

      • Girls Gone Wild
        The Oscar Wilde sketch, "Girls Gone Wilde" (with an E) is an allusion to the popular DVD series, Girls Gone Wild, produced by Joe Francis, in which young adult women flash their breasts and body parts to cameras during spring break and other party-heavy scenes.

      • The New Adventures of Old Christine
        During the "Tranny 911" sketch, the announcer refers to "The Adventures of Old Dirty Sanchez." This is an allusion to the popular CBS series, The New Adventures of Old Christine, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

      • During the "Tranny 911" sketch, Tranny Nanny Chocolate Puddin' calls Madison, "you little bride o' chucky." This is an allusion to the 1998 comedy-horror film, Bride of Chucky, the third sequel in the popular, Child's Play film series.

      • Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

        In the "Hazel" sketch, Hazel tells the black cashier named Ezekiel that he reminds her of that actor Harry Bellafontaine from that movie with Spencer and Tracy, to which Hazel's husband, Ron, corrects her by saying it was Poitier. Hazel then calls her son Donovan and says, "Guess who's coming to brunch?"

        This is an allusion to the 1967 Academy Award winning film, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner starring Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn and Sidney Poitier about a young white woman who brings her African American fiancé home to meet her parents.

      • Mary Poppins
        Nanny Tranny Heaven's song, which includes lines such as "a spoonful of sugar" and "I'm your tranny Poppins" is an allusion to the 1964 Walt Disney live action/animated film, Mary Poppins, which included the song, "A Spoonful of Sugar."
