Manny Singer: Corrina, can I talk to you for a minute? Look, whatever you may believe in is fine for you, okay? Your heaven is fine for you, but Molly's mother was an atheist and so am I, and I don't want you telling her that her mother is somewhere she isn't.
Corrina Washington: Yes, Mr. Singer. I'll just continue to tell Molly her mother is in the bathtub.
Molly: Is Tater Tot Mr. Potato Head's son?
Corrina Washington: [to Molly] I'm sorry I'm late, I'm sorry I'm late, I'll never be late again but you don't know what happened to me. A herd of elephants stopped in the middle of the road for a drink of water and I didn't know what to do! So I... are you stuck on me with Elmer's glue? Yes you are, I guess I'm just going to have to carry you.
Grandma Eva: Manny, listen to me. A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where do they build their home?
Percy: [laughing hysterically, holding a mug to his ear] That's the funniest thing you ever told me in your whole life!
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.
Manny Singer: What was the word?
Corrina Washington: Why don't we vacuum ourselves out the door?
Manny Singer: How do you spell vacuum?
Corrina Washington: [to Molly] Do you want the pecan waffles with lots of syrup and butter or would you rather have the slim starter with the cottage cheese, the hard boiled egg and the tomato?
Wilma, Car Hop: Darling, if it's a choice between those delicious waffles and that STUPID egg, for God's sake, pat your little nose.
Corrina Washington: You're the short, silent type aren't you? -I could tell.
Manny Singer: One of the last things my wife said to me was, "Don't forget to pick up some almonds on the way home." She said she had a coupon for roasted... But I was in a hurry and I didn't wait until she found it.
Corrina Washington: I don't think she was angry, Manny. I think she understood. Now, do you wanna know the last thing I said to my husband?
Manny Singer: What?
Corrina Washington: Slow down.
Manny Singer: Huh?
Corrina Washington: Slow... down.
Corrina Washington: You know what I've discovered about your daddy? He likes to eat cookies in bed. Could you tuck that sheet in... just there?
Molly: Corrina... this is where my mommy sleeps.
Corrina Washington: You're right. Your mommy used to sleep here.
Molly: When is she coming back?
Corrina Washington: Well, Molly... she's not coming back. When you die, the angels take you up to heaven to be with God.
Molly: Then I want to die, too.
Manny Singer: Where are my cigarettes?
Corrina Washington: I just put a fresh carton in there!
Manny Singer: Well, I don't see any.
Corrina Washington: Well, I can't even offer you one of mine since you've taken to smoking those, too.
Manny Singer: What's that supposed to mean?
Corrina Washington: It means that if you're going to smoke my cigarettes, I'd appreciate you telling me.
Manny Singer: Fine. If you're gonna smoke *my* cigarettes, I'd appreciate you telling me.
Corrina Washington: Fine.
Molly: But I'm just so? I'm just so?
Corrina Washington: So mad. You're just so mad. And it's okay to be mad, Molly.
Manny Singer: Molly, I'm mad, too! I'm mad at Mommy for leaving us. I'm mad because I want to talk to Mommy every day, and I can't. I'm mad because I want to bring Mommy back to you, and I can't do that, either.
Molly: I'm mad because she didn't even say goodbye.
Manny Singer: I'm mad about that, too.
Corrina Washington: I'm mad because she made you mad! I'm mad! She should've said goodbye!
Manny Singer: What is this, high school?
Corrina Washington: [hits the car against a pole] I was just testing the brakes and it'll do your heart good to know they work.
Molly: [on phone] Operator? We're having trouble on our line; can you dial that number again?
