Lyle: You're not going to get rid of me easily, Karen. I'm going to stick to you like bangers to mash.
Karen: You're not getting your banger anywhere near my mash.
Marilyn: (to Will about Ruth after her dentures came loose) Maybe if she'd stop talking for five minutes, it'd stay in. 'Oh, look at my pretty hair. Do you like my pretty hair?' Please. I've got potatoes with prettier hair.
Lyle: Perhaps for every kiss you give me, I could give you a piece of information.
Karen: That's outrageous! You must think I'm a common whore! So, do you want my top on or off?
Lyle: Well, I'm a gentleman. So why don't you keep it on, and I'll rip it off?
Marilyn: (about Tom) For God's sake, will you just ask him out? You don't need me.
Will: I do need you. Right now the thing that Tom likes best about me is how much I pretend to love you.
Marilyn: Yes, honey, but I get stuck with the mother. I mean, she's 120. She was a nurse at the battle of Gettysburg. No, I can't do it! I cannot possibly think of one more thing to say to that old bag of bones.
Tom: I love your wheelchair.
Will: Thank you, I rented it.
Tom: Is that a Roll King 2000?
Marilyn: Well, if the Roll King is the cheapest one they make, then yes, it is.
Will: Take a nap, mother!
Jack: Hey, guys, look what I got. I put together a care package for Grace. You know, so she knows we're thinking about her while she's far away. Do you have her address in Pittsburgh?
Will: She's in Cambodia.
Jack: Ooh, sounds like a lot of stamps just to mail a condom.
(Jack throws the box into the hallway)
Karen: Hey, Wilma, I need your help. Remember Lorraine Finster, the dame who stole my husband and tried to bump me off? Well, I think I found her. Private Dick said he dug up an 'L. Finster' at the Hotel Knickerbocker. Come on, let's go down there and give her the what for!
Will: As much as I'd love to put on a trench coat and go looking for your grip on reality, I can't. I have to take care of my mom.
Karen: Oh, how sweet. A gay man living with his mother. Would you like me to preheat the oven, or you wanna just jump right in?
Karen: You're her father? I can't believe that bitch has a father!
Lyle: Well, the bitch does, now would you like some tea?

Lyle: I cancelled Li-li for her, AND Rita...but that's a whore of a different color.
This is an allusion to the line from The Wizard Of Oz in the Emerald City, "That's a horse of a different color."
