Dorothy: They might.

Blanche: That settles it. Pearls it is.

* Sophia: Oh boy if this is the kitchen then I’m poaching an egg in the toilet.

* Sophia: He’s a pig, there’s no accounting for taste.

* Dorothy: Even your money has more fun than I do.

* Dorothy: Four grown women decide to live with a pig and he has a mental problem?

* Dorothy: Are you telling us that the pig is dying of homesickness?

* Rose: I’m just as disappointed as you are. It’s been great having a pig living in the in the house, but we can’t jeopardize Baby’s health.

* Dorothy: We lied to Rose. We tricked her into jeopardizing the life of an animal just so we could make a quick buck. * Blanche: Oh my god. I’m a murderer. I’m nothing but no-good money-grubbing trash. Baby, forgive me.
