  • Quotes

    • Mrs. Granger: I asked my grandson what he wanted to be when he grew up, he said a grandma. I asked him why a grandma? He said 'Because grandmas always give you presents'.
      Cliff: So did you give him one?
      Mrs. Granger: Yeah, I love what he has to say about grandmas.
      Cliff: What's he say about grandpas?
      Mrs. Granger: Nothing, he never knew his.
      Cliff: Oh I'm sorry.
      Mrs. Granger: I'm not, he's not missing anything. I got married when I was 16.
      Cliff: 16? That I didn't know.
      Mrs. Granger: Yeah, I was pregnant, and that you didn't know. It took me 5 months to tell my father, when I did, the next day he marched us up to the Justice of the Peace and we were married. On the night of our first anniversary he said 'I'm going to the store for a pack of cigarettes, I'll be back soon'. Well there must've been a long line at that store because he never came back.
      Cliff: Oh no.
      Mrs. Granger: Yeah, for 3 days my father and I looked for that boy...then I finally said to myself 'what am I killing myself for?' But you know what, it's true what they say, it's better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all.
