* Kate: Mom don’t you think it would be just a little awkward with you and dad not talking?
Dorothy: Oh now just a minute. I’m not the one who ran off to Maui with someone half my age and twice my bra size.
* Dorothy: I just kept telling myself that once he is here he would be close enough to kill.
* Kate: Do you think dad will like him?
Dorothy: Of course, as long as he stays young and nubile.
* Stan: That’s me and Chrissy at a Luau.
Dorothy: Is she the one with the apple in her mouth?
* Sophia: He gives me the creeps. He’s been following me. They always follow the old people. It’s like parking tickets, they have a quota.
