  • Quotes

    • Ah-Mah: Any other questions?
      Kid: Do you know karate? (she sighs, annoyed)
      Ah-Mah: First of all, karate is JAPANESE, second of all why do people always ask Asians those same questions? First question, "What are you?", second question "Do you know karate?". So, I'm Chinese, and yes, I know karate. And over 50 other styles of hand-to-hand combat! (jumps up and lands on desk in a combat position, June gives her a look) Uh, we learn it in gym class.

    • Teacher: So Jasmine, why don't you tell us a little about China?
      Ah-Mah: I haven't been to China in 40 years! (the class stares at her, June gives her a look) I mean uh, for awhile, but I'm sure it hasn't changed since I left it.

    • Michael: (heard upstairs) Kids, is your grandmother up there? Her purse is down here. Mom?
      Ray Ray: Quick! Hide under here! (June and Ray Ray run her over to the bed, it's full of junk) No, in there! (they run her over to the closet, junk spills onto the floor)
      June: Ray Ray!
      Ray Ray: Well whaddya expect for 5 bucks?! (Micheal comes in)
      Michael: Who's this?
      Ray Ray: This is our, uh...cousin, Roxanne! Yeah, she's visiting from Hong Kong.
      Michael: Really? So where do you live? Who are your parents?
      Ah-Mah: Oh uh, y'know a small place, I live there with my family. I'm the daughter of Ming-Mei and Jin.

    • Ah-Mah: Why did you tell him I was staying over? Now I gotta sleep here! And what kinda name is Roxanne anyway?!
      Ray Ray: What? It's a tough-girl name, like a trucker! We could call ya Roxie! (Micheal appears out of the doorway)
      Michael: Hey, I like that. So Roxie, I just put in a call to June and Ray Ray's school, so you go there tomorrow to see how the kids in the states go handle it! (he leaves, June and Ah-Mah give Ray Ray a look)
      Ray Ray: For five bucks I can get ya out of it. (June punches him)

    • Teacher: Now Roxanne, there's one question I like to ask all my students, what would you like to be when you grow up?
      Ah-Mah: A size 4! (laughs, June gives her a look, then she gets serious) I guess what I really wanted to do was become an archeologist. Studying different cultures and people from all around the world.
      Teacher: Well, you've still got time Roxanne.
      Ah-Mah: It would appear so.

    • June: (to Ah-Mah) Good thing we're the same size now.

    • June: (after she was turned back to normal) Ah-Mah, are you ok?
      Ah-Mah: I'm fine. Old again, but fine. (her pants rip, June giggles a little, Ah-Mah sighs) I knew I shoulda gone with the spandex.

    • June: Roger, go home!
      Roger: Not until I see Roxanne!
      June: Roxanne went back to China!
      Roger: Lies!
      Barbara: He's got five minutes, then I'm turning on the sprinklers.
      Roger: Roxanne!!! (the sprinklers turn on, Roger slips and falls)

    • June: (to Ah-Mah) Yeah well one of the downsides of being a kid, is that you have to go to school. (all of June's friends come up)
      Roger: Whoa June, who's your new friend?
      Ah-Mah: (whispering to June) Oh yeah, this is gonna be a non-stop party.
      June: Oh uh, hey guys, this is my cousin, Roxanne.
      Roger: Well, uh, any cousin of June's is a, cousin of mine!
      Ophelia: (sarcastic) Smooth, Roge.
      Jody: (slowly but loudly) Welcome to America, my name is JODY, can you say JODY?

    • Ah-Mah: Why this doesn't happen when I have a date, I'll never know.
      June: (same time with Ray Ray) Oh Ah-Mah!
      Ray Ray: (same time with June) Aaaugh! Don't say that!!!

    • Michael: Meng Mei and Jin, I don't know that part of the family.
      Ah-Mah: Imagine that.

    • Ray Ray: Whoa, Ah-Mah, you look hot.
      June and Monroe: Eww!
      Ray Ray: What? I can't say my own grandmother looks hot?
      June and Monroe: NO!
      Ah-Mah: (giggles) Of course you can sweetie, your Ah-Mah could never get tired of hearing it.

    • Ah-Mah: (after being turned younger) What's everybody staring at?
