    • Mrs. Garrett: All right, I've had it! Can't you girls speak in anything but the first person? My parties, my motorcycle, my problems! Well I've got news for you. The world does not revolve around you! No, believe it or not, when you do leave a room, life does go on!

      Jo: We Know that, Mrs. G.

      Mrs. Garrett: No, you don't! When are you gonna realize that other people got lives of their own, and problems too? Even Me! That I'm not just your problem solver, your nursemaid? You girl are gonna have to start learning how to take care of yourselves because I can't do it anymore. I just can't!

    • (After Mrs. tells the girls that she's having a sleep crisis)
      Jo: Well, that explains a lot. I know when I don't catch enough Z's, I'm crankier than you are.
      Blair: Cranky. You're down right ugly.

    • Mr. Parker: The budget has all ready been made up, and you got your cost of living raise.
      Mrs. Garrett: That raise only covers the cost of living if you don't do any!
