"New" Christine Hunter
"Old" Christine Campbell
In the opening scene, the tissue box between Christine and Barb moves positions several times for no apparent reason.
Barb: You heard her say there's a wine cellar.
Christine: Yeah, and that's wonderful. There's enough happiness and wine cellars out there for everyone. Oprah wouldn't freak out; I'm not gonna freak out.
Barb: Oprah doesn't like wine as much as you do.
Matthew: Ernest and Julio Gallo don't like wine as much as you do.
Matthew: So, uh, where do you hide the TV?
New Christine: Oh, no, this is the family room. No TV in the family room.
Barb: But it's such a nice room. Don't you want people to sit in it?
Christine: Oh, lookit, they hung a seasonal flag.
Matthew: Oh, right, for people who want to pledge allegiance to 'cute'.
Matthew: You have a great life! Sure, you don't have a nice house or the ability to cook or clean or depth or morals.
Matthew: Oh, and you have a big butt.
Barb: I do not care for people who look like things that aren't people.
Christine: God, I love Oprah. She is so happy and generous and successful. You know what makes her different from me?
Matthew: You just listed three things.
(Christine throws a fit on the stuck couch)
Matthew: (to Barb) I don't watch her show as much as you do. Does Oprah do this kind of stuff a lot?
Christine: Well, she has never been through the kind of adversity that I have been through.
Barb: Oprah grew up a poor black girl, in rural Missippippi, in the 50s, with no parents.
Christine: Yeah, well I grew up in the 70s, with my parents, and I have a couch jammed in my door!
Barb: I guess it's a tie.
