    • Blair: I'm a... I'm a ventriloquist.
      Tootie: Ha! You're a what?
      Cathy: Blair Warner, a ventriloquist?
      Blair: Well when I was a kid I was alone a lot, and so I'd sit in front of the mirror... my favorite place... and I'd entertain myself.
      Guy: Well come on.
      Tootie: Let's see it.
      Blair: Look, I haven't done this in a long time. I'm gonna need a dummy... Joooo?
      Jo: Noooo.
      Tootie: Aw, come on Jo.
      Blair: Come on Jo, loosen up a little?
      Jo: Alright, since you put it that way.
      (Jo goes to sit on the couch and Blair pulls her onto her lap)
      Blair: Now when I pull your ponytail open your mouth.

    • Jo: Look, you're not the same with other people as you are with us. Around here you're yourself. Goofy. But out there you're always "Blair Warner: Harvest Queen". You're always telling people what to wear and what to eat and how to eat it.
      Blair: Maybe you're right. Thanks.
      Jo: Ya know, another thing... You shouldn't worry what people think of ya. So they see you fall on the ice, what difference does it make? You're... human.
      Blair: I understand what you're saying Jo. Thank you.
      Jo: Ya know, another thing-
      Blair: There's more?
      Jo: Blair! Come on! We're out in the world now! Things are different. You gotta get down off your pedestal and start being yourself.
      Blair: I'm not sure I know how to do that.
      Jo: Sure you do. Just loosen up a little.

    • Blair: Jo, what's happened to me? Tell me what I'm doing wrong.
      Jo: Oh come on Blair, that'd take me a week!

    • Blair: You don't want to make phone calls. What you should do is mail invitations. You can use some of mine.
      Jo: Blair, this is not some fancy debutante ball. It's a little get-together.
      Blair: Well it's your first little get-together and you should do it right.
      Jo: Blair, it's my little get-together and I'll do it anyway I want.
      Blair: What does that mean? Taco chips and beer?
      Jo: What's wrong with that?
      Blair: I suppose we can also look forward to an evening of heavy metal and hearing loss. Well if you want to scream over that-
      Jo: Blair it's my party and I'll scream if I want to! And I'll invite who I want the way I want!
      Blair: Fine. Go ahead and make phone calls. I don't care. I don't care if you shout it at the top of your lungs!
      Blair: I WON'T BE THERE!
      Jo: FINE!
      Blair: FINE!

    • Blair: When we were at Eastland I was a big fish and Jo was a little guppy. Now I'm a little fish and Jo is Shamu! What am I doing wrong?
      Natalie: Well, first of all you're babbling.

    • (To Jo)
      Blair: It's a popularity contest. You don't win those, I do.
      Kelly: Not this time, Toots.
