Veda: That's what I like about you, Ida. You're so delightfully provincial.
Ida: [Sarcastically] And I like you, too. [to Monte] Don't look now, Junior, but you're standing under a brick wall.
Monte: I don't get it.
Ida: You will - when it falls on you.
Veda: It's the dress. It's awfully cheap material. I can tell by the smell.
Kay Pierce: What did you expect? Want it inlaid with gold?
Veda: Well, it seems to me, if you're buying anything, it should be the best. This is definitely not the best.
Kay Pierce: Oh, quit. You're breakin' my heart.
Monte: Oh, I wish I could get that interested in work.
Ida: You were probably frightened by a callus at an early age!
Veda: With this money I can get away from you. From you and your chickens and your pies and your kitchens and everything that smells of grease. I can get away from this shack with its cheap furniture. And this town and its dollar days, and its women that wear uniforms and its men that wear overalls.
Wally: There's something about the sound of my own voice that fascinates me.
Mildred: I'm sorry I did that... I'd've rather cut off my hand!
Wally: Oh boy! I'm so smart it's a disease!
Veda: [kissing check] Well, that's that!
Mildred: I'm sorry this had to happen; sorry for the boy, he seemed very nice.
Veda: Oh Ted's all right really. Did you see the look on his face when we told him he was going to be a father? [laughs]
Mildred: I wish you wouldn't joke about it.
Veda: Mother, you're a scream, really you are. The next thing I know you'll be knitting little garments.
Mildred: I don't see anything so ridiculous about that.
Veda: If I were you, I'd save myself the trouble.
Wally: You know, this is a pretty big night for you.
Policeman #1: Yeah?
Wally: Yeah, lots of excitement. There's a stiff in there!
Policeman #1: Is that so? Oh and I suppose you were running right down to the station to report it?
Wally: [forced laugh]
Policeman #1: Yeah... [to partner] Say, he say's there's a dead guy in the house.
Policeman #2: You never saw a deader.
Mildred: Cut it out, Wally. You make me feel like Little Red Riding Hood.
Wally: And I'm the Big Bad Wolf, huh? Now, Milly, you've got me all wrong. I'm a romantic guy, but I'm no wolf.
Mildred: Then quit howling!
Mildred: You look down on me, because I work for a living. Don't you.
Lottie: [on the opening of Mildred's restaurant] This is just like my wedding night, so exciting!
Mildred: That Ted Forrester's nice-looking, isn't he? Veda likes him.
Monte: Who wouldn't? He has a million dollars.
Ida: What is this, a class reunion?
Kay Pierce: You ought to do something about your sit-down.
Veda: What's wrong with it?
Kay Pierce: It sticks out.
Ida: Personally, Veda's convinced me that alligators have the right idea. They eat their young.
Mildred: Sold... [holds up glass to toast] One Beragon.
Wally: You know, you keep on refusing me, and one of these days I'm going to start thinking you're stubborn.
Ida: I like Mexico; it's so... Mexican.
Wally: [to Ida] I hate all women. Thank goodness you're not one.
