      • (About Kelly)
        Jo: Mrs. Garrett, it's your store and you do what you want, but if she hangs around here you're gonna have a full scale mutiny on your hands. I mean, even Natalie and Tootie don't like her, and they like everybody.

      • Jo: Kid, you're in this store and you're breathing. One of those things has gotta change.
        Kelly: Mrs. Garrett, are you gonna let her threaten me like that?
        Mrs. Garrett: Why not, she's good at it.

      • Jo: Nobody, and I mean nobody, hassles Mrs. Garrett or hits on that store!
        Kelly: Yeah, well nobody calls me a smurf!
        Jo: I didn't call you a smurf. I called you a twerp.
        Kelly: You called me a smurf and a twerp. It got me mad!
        Jo: Well if you're mad at me you take it up with me! You don't extort money from my friends!
        Kelly: I can't take up anything with you. You don't talk to me. You just call me names and take off.
        Jo: Well what do you care what I call you?! What do you care what anybody calls you?! You are what you are, and what you are is a smurf and a twerp!

      • Blair: I'll pay the store back, I've got fifty dollars.
        Jo: I don't care if you've got a million dollars.
        Blair: But I do.
        Jo: I know. And I don't care.

      • Kelly: I could never go to boarding school. I'd really miss all my brothers and sisters.
        Tootie: Oh, how old are they?
        Kelly: Twelve, ten, nine...
        Tootie: Oh I love big families.
        Kelly: ...Eight, six, six, they're twins, and three.
        Natalie: Don't your parents have a television?

      • Tootie: Natalie, taking a semester in sociology is not a license to smirk.

      • Mrs. Garrett: A street gang?
        Blair: In this neighborhood? Aren't there zoning laws against that?
