    • QUOTES (3)

      • Helen: (on Tom's Uncle Bertram) We love you, Uncle Bertram. You are the only one from either side of the family who never gave us any static when we got married.
        Uncle Bertram: The Willis Family may have been solid white, but we never had as much heart and soul in our whole body than you've got in that little finger.
        Tom: I'll second that.
        Jenny: Uncle Bertram, that's beautiful.
        Uncle Bertram: And besides, you learn when you're a fireman, all kinds of guys can go into that smoke, but we're all the same color when we come out.

      • Louise: (going to answer the door)(on going to an auction with George) I just want to make sure you don't buy anything I'll be sorry for. Because if there's anything we don't need in this apartment, it's a very old, moth-eaten antique. (Louise opens the door for Mother Jefferson)
        Mother Jefferson: Hello, Louise.
        Louise: Hello, Mother Jefferson. We were just talking about you.

      • George: Weezy, I think it's time we changed our furniture.
        Louise: Why? What's wrong with our furniture?
        George: It's all brand new.
        Louise: I think you've been working too hard, George.
        George: You don't understood. Look at this auction catalogue. Antiques, Weezy, antiques... that's what we need.
        Louise: Why do we need an old table full of wormholes?
        George: Because them wormholes mean money.
        Louise: Well, if they mean money, then we must've been millionaires when we lived in Harlem.
        George: Termite holes don't count. We got to have them kind made by the French worms. They got class. Because they have been dead a long time.
