Esther Smith: Personally, I think I have too much bloom. Maybe that's the trouble with me.

'Tootie' Smith: We'll fix him fine. It'll serve him right for poisoning cats... He buys meat and then he buys poison and then he puts them all together.

Rose Smith: You'll find out tomorrow.

Mr. Alonzo Smith: Anna, who is that boy?
Mrs. Anna Smith: Now Lonny he's a very fine young man. We'll talk about it later.
Grandpa: That young man is so excited he's liable to leave on his honeymoon without Rose.

Agnes Smith: Katie, where's my cat?
Katie the Maid: I don't know... a little while ago, she got in my way and I kicked her down the cellar steps. I could hear her spine hitting on every step.
Agnes Smith: Oh, if you killed her, I'll kill you! I'll stab you to death in your sleep, then I'll tie your body to two wild horses until you're pulled apart.
Katie the Maid: Oh, won't that be terrible, now? There's your cat.

Rose Smith: Money. I hate, loathe, despise and abominate money.
Mr. Alonzo Smith: You also spend it.

Mrs. Anna Smith: If I ever catch you fibbing again like you did about John Truett, I'll give you something to recuperate about.

Rose Smith: Agnes Smith, you're nothing less than a murderer. You could have killed dozens of people.
Agnes Smith: Oh, Rose, you're so stuck up.

Rose Smith: Oh, Es, isn't he simply enchanting? And so mature.

Mr. Alonzo Smith: Lord, we thank thee for the bountiful blessing we are about to receive. Amen.
'Tootie' Smith: Agnes, if I forget to remind Papa, you remind me.
Agnes Smith: All right.

Grandpa: Pardon me, young man, but in the great country of China, when a stranger admires one of your possessions, it's common courtesy to offer it to him.
Kid at the ball: That's very interesting.
Grandpa: Yes. Well I spent many years in China, and if you want to make me feel thoroughly at home, you might offer me your partner.
Kid at the ball: Huh?
Grandpa: Spoken like a true gentleman.

Audio problem: After Tootie sings 'I Was Drunk Last Night' you see a far away shot where Esther grabs her leg and says 'Tootie you very ba..' Cut to the close up where she repeats 'Tootie you very bad'
