Birdee Pruitt: Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome.
Bernice Pruitt: Please don't have a talk with her mother. I'd rather die.
Travis: Don't worry. You will.
Ramona Calvert: Look at me. My life has no meaning or direction, and I'm happy.
Birdee Pruitt: Once upon a time your mama knew what it meant to shine.
Bernice Pruitt: Mom, are you gonna marry Justin Matisse?
Birdee Pruitt: Oh, honey, I'm not planning on getting married again for along time. What, you don't like Justin?
Bernice Pruitt: No, it's not that. It's just that.
Birdee Pruitt: What is it? You can tell me.
Bernice Pruitt: I just don't want to be known as Bernice Matisse.
Justin Matisse: Dancing's just a conversation between two people. Talk to me.
Ramona Calvert: Mothers always love their daughters, even if they show it poorly.
Bernice Pruitt: At home we had a pet skunk. Mama used to call it Justin Matisse. Do you think that's just a coincidence? All day long she would to scream, "You stink Justin Matisse!" Then one day she just picked up a club and killed it.
Justin Matisse: Now that's a sad story.
Bernice Pruitt: If you liked the skunk, which we didn't.
Ramona Calvert: Hey, I am still your mama, Missy. You move it.
