  • Quotes

    • Elvin: Honey, look around! I mean there's hardly anything left. The only thing that's left is the babies' football.
      Sondra: Now that you mention it, they were very persistent. In fact, every time I tried to get up, they shoved me back down. And then you should have seen their faces when they got their hands on those babies. They were cackeling! Elvin, our mothers stole our babies!
