  • Quotes

    • Blanche: You know, being at the birthing center today brought back vivid memories of when I delivered Rebecca. It was so wonderful. When I woke up, there she was in my arms, just as goofy and hung over as I was. I vowed right then and there to have 20 more!
      Rose: Well, what stopped you?
      Blanche: The drugs wore off.

    • Dorothy: Honey, why don't you just quit?
      Rose: Oh, they have a name for people for quit. They call them quitters!
      Sophia: Don't let them call you that, Rose. You make them stick with "idiot."

    • Rose: They've been in there an awfully long time.
      Sophia: it took me 3 days to have Dorothy, I finally coaxed her out, with a pork chop.

    • Blanche: (to Becky) You know, the first time I held you in my arms, I knew I was holding someone I'd love for the rest of my life.

    • Rebecca:I'm not having my baby in a hospital.I'm going to a natural birthing center.They emphasize natural childbirth in a relaxed atmosphere with no painkillers.Blanche: Becky,I know I told you where babies come from.Did I ever mention where they come OUT?

    • Dorothy: So how's being pregnant?
      Rebecca: Allright, except for the hormones. Yesterday I cried when the mail was late.
      Rose: Oh no, her mail was late!
      Dorothy: (to Becky) Can you imagine what she was like WITH hormones?

    • Dorothy: Becky, wouldn't you rather have your baby in a place with less stereo and more...
      (woman in labor screams)

      Sophia: She's conscious.

    • (Rose is moving very slow with the weights on her ankles)
      Rose: I'm going to the store, is there anything you need?
      Dorothy: Is that as fast as you can go?
      Rose: Yes.
      Dorothy: Don't get any dairy.

    • (Rose is moving very slow with the weights on her ankles)

    • Dorothy: Put that down.
      (takes a glass of orange juice from Sophia.)
      Sophia: What?

    • Woman (voice only): Aaaaah!
      Tour Guide: Sounds like there's a mommy in the making.
      Rose: Sounds like there's a mommy on fire.

    • Rebecca: I was just wondering what being in labor feels like.
      Dorothy: Well, how do you feel?
      Rebecca: If I had any military secrets, I'd talk.
      Dorothy: Showtime!

    • Dorothy: Ma, you're hurting my feelings!
      Sophia: Not as much as you hurt my oonie.
      Dorothy: Ma!!

    • Dorothy: The contractions have been approximately 5 minutes apart for the last 45 minutes, I suggest that you check how dilated she is.
      Doctor: Gee, I never would have thought of that.

    • (Rebecca going into labor)
      Rebecca: Ooh, OOh, OOH!, YIKES!
      Sophia: Blanche, cut it out I'm trying to get some sleep.

    • Sophia: Do you wanna know why I call you pussycat, pussycat?
      Dorothy: Why Ma? Because you only gave me yarn for Christmas? Because you fed me once and I hung around? Because you used to put me out at night?
      Sophia: No. Because I love pussycats and I love you...and you were the only one in the family who could catch mice.

    • Rose: Am I crazy or did I hear screaming?
      Dorothy: Yes and yes.

    • Blanche: (after Rebecca delivers baby) Oh, would you look at him.
      Doctor: Mrs. Devereaux, that's the umbilical cord!
