Whoopi Goldberg

Quotes from Whoopi Goldberg movies and TV shows

Jane: The further away from that body I get, the happier I'll be.

Jane: ...Do you miss it?
Robin: What?
Jane: Sex.
Robin: Yeah, I do... You know what's weird? You never know the last time you sleep with somebody it's the last time. You're thinking: "Oh, we got problems, we got work to do," you know, but you never think... and then you break up and a month later you look back and you go: "Oh, that was it." That Tuesday or Friday or whenever, and you wished you paid attention because it was the last time... Well.

Robin: Don't you knock?
Jane: Not in a public toilet, no.

Jane: You were gonna bring a baby into that house?
Holly: Oh, like, what were my options?
Jane: How about abortion?
Holly: I couldn't do that. I'd feel like a murderer.
Jane: Honey, you ARE a murderer.

Holly: Did I hurt him?
Jane: What do you mean did you hurt him, you hit him with a bat.

Molly: My daddy doesn't think she's in heaven.
Corrina Washington: Well, that's probably just because your daddy is so jealous of the angels. He's so jealous, he can't even stand to think about those angels who get to play with your mommy all day long. And he's hurting just like you're hurting, and you're going to hurt for a long time. Every day it'll get a little better, but you'll always miss your mommy, and that's okay.

Molly: I won the spelling bee today.
Manny Singer: You did? Corrina, did you hear that?
Corrina Washington: I heard it, now let's go eat, I'm starved.

Corrina Washington: Why don't we vacuum ourselves out the door?
Manny Singer: How do you spell vacuum?

Corrina Washington: Yes, Mr. Singer. I'll just continue to tell Molly her mother is in the bathtub.
