      • Molly: Bye, Becky. Eat whatever you want!
        Nanny Anna: You look like you do.

      • Anna: She will forget us faster than America will forget Kelly Clarkson.
        Ollie: Who?

      • Doris: Maggie, this chicken is so good, it makes me forget that most of my life is already over.

        Molly (To Maggie): ...You could market these golden thighs and make a fortune.
        Anna: That is my plan. (She rubs her thighs)
        Maria: Well, do it soon, because much like chicken it gets old and chewy fast.

        Maggie: My golly, you guys have inspired me. ...I'm gonna sell it.
        The Help: Oh Congratulations Maggie (Other praises)
        Maria: Rich Bitch!
        Anna: She'll forget us faster than America will forget Kelly Clarkson.
        Dwayne: Who?
        Maggie: Guys you know what, this really was your idea. I think it's only fair if we share the profits.
        The Help: Oh wow!
        Molly: I could finally afford prozak.

        Maria: Where could people like us get money?
        (In the living room)
        Maria (To the Ridgeway's): We just need to talk to you about something.
        Arlene: Oh God, they're gonna ask for money.

        Arlene: We're in.
        (The Help cheers)
        Arlene: Ahem. We'll take 90 percent of the profits.
        (The Help moans)
        Arlene: The remaining 10 percent will be spilt amongst all of you.
        Maria: Let us talk it over. There's gotta be a way to squeeze more out of them.
        Molly: Let me handle this. I got that high school teacher fired and he never really touched me. (Walks up to the Ridgeways) RAPE!

        Veronica: The Chicken Game is all about image. We need to get some buzz. Some hip hoppin, roof raising, crib rocking, white hot heat
        Maggie: Wow
        Arlene: You are so hip. I'm just worried you're becoming a gangsta.

        Maggie: I'm gonna be on TV. And not because they pay me to say I like the new Brittany Murphy movie. She stinks.

        Maggie: Well, I'm off to my TV debut, any words of encouragement?
        Anna: Yes. Tell us your secret ingredient in case you get into a horrible accident on the way.

        Doris: I can't wait to be rich. I want a comfy pair of slippers, that's all I want. And a Cadillac, that's all I want. And a plane named Doris.

        Maria: I'm gonna get a big house and a maid and I am not gonna yell at her...Yes I am. I might whip her.

        Molly: I'm gonna rescue all of the dogs from the No Kill Shelter and GAS them. Dogs, always watching while your having sex with their master. I know what those dogs were thinking, "I'll still be here in the morning whore!" Damn Dog, you're the whore!

        Molly: ...I hate Chicken, and it's ugly fat cousin Turkey!

        Anna: I can't believe I am not going to get fat!
        Ollie: Oh don't worry, you will!

        Dwayne: Dwayne has never tasted failure before
        Molly: You must have been setting the bar pretty low!
        Dwayne: I did! (Starts Crying)
        Anna: Your weakness sickens me.
        (She slaps Dwayne)
        Anna: A real man only cries when he's drunk!
        Doris: Or...when you tell him "Hey, get back over here, I wasn't done."

        TV Show Crew Guy: Ten seconds to air Becky.
        Becky: Can you see my underpants?
        (Crew Guy shakes his head no)
        Becky: No? Then shorten the skirt or raise the chair, this is show business for God Sakes!

        Becky: We have a wonderful, wonderful show for you today, and as usual we're gonna start off with the least interesting person. ...Please welcome Arlene Ridgeway!

        Becky: Veronica, you represent. Your music got me through some hard times. My boyfriend left me when he got signed to a record deal. (Looks at the Camera) It's an independent label Tony! Anyone can get signed to an independent label, that's not making it. And PS, it wasn't yours, but your paying for it.

        Veronica: Would anyone like to hear me sing, "Who does your nails?"
        Arlene: One trick pony.
        Veronica: You wanna be me? You wanna be me?
        You don't have what it takes, you're not a size three
        Who does your nails? Who does your nails?
        Where'd you get your shoes? And were they on sale?
        Becky: Slammin!

        Arlene: I'd just like to introduce my cook Maggie...The Cook.
        Becky: So Maggie, what is your last name?
        Maggie: I don't know.

        Becky: Hey, I know you. You slept with my boyfriend.
        Anna: And your father.

        Becky: We'll finish this in the alley later.
        Anna: I'll make you my bitch.

        Becky: Arlene, you must be so proud. ...I assume, like Paul Newman, you'll be donating all the profits from Maggie Chicken to charity.
        Arlene: Why, of course, of course, all to charity.
        Doris: Charity!
        (She grabs her chest and faints)

    • NOTES (1)

      • Megan Fox is not even mentioned in this episode, so I believe her character may be cut but I'll keep searching for something to let me know if that will be true or not.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Anna: She'll forget us faster than America will forget Kelly Clarkson.
        Kelly Clarkson was the first winner of the Fox reality tv show American Idol.
