Quote from George Sr.

George Sr.: You mind putting down my kid?
Clint Watson: We were just playing around.
Veronica: This is my mom's boyfriend, Clint.
George Sr.: Hello, Clint. What can we do for you?
Clint Watson: I'm here to pick up Veronica. Come on.
George Sr.: You want to go with this man?
Veronica: No, sir.
George Sr.: You heard her. Thanks for stopping by.
Clint Watson: You really want to mess with me?
George Sr.: Sure. Why not?
[THUDDING OUTSIDE]
Mary: What's going on out there?
George Sr.: You might want to call the police.
Mary: Why?
George Sr.: There's a bum sleeping on our front porch.

Quote from George Jr.

Mary: And while she's here, I expect y'all to be on your best behavior.
George Jr.: Why are you looking at me?
Mary: Was I?
George Jr.: Yeah, and you still are.

Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

Meemaw: Hello?
Dr. John Sturgis: Did you know that word "hello" wasn't used as a greeting - until the invention of the telephone?
Meemaw: Hi, John.
Dr. John Sturgis: To end a phone call, it was suggested to say, "That is all."
Meemaw: Is that all, John?
Dr. John Sturgis: No, I wanted to invite you to dinner tomorrow night.
Meemaw: Great. Where we going?
Dr. John Sturgis: I can't tell you that. It's a surprise.
Meemaw: You want to give me a clue so I'll know how to dress?
Dr. John Sturgis: Well, dress as if you were going to a Mexican restaurant.
Meemaw: Oh, we're going to Puerta Roja.
Dr. John Sturgis: I can't tell you that, it would ruin the surprise.
Meemaw: John, you do realize that I'll be the one driving us there.
Dr. John Sturgis: Fine, we're going to Puerta Roja, but everything else is a surprise. That is all!

Sheldon: Georgie, I have the olfactory senses of a polar bear. They can smell a seal through three feet of ice.

Quote from Missy

Sheldon: He's exhibiting Zahavian signaling theory.

Missy: Too bad he doesn't have any desirable qualities.

Quote from Meemaw

Mary: Oh, Mom. If you're sleeping with the man, you should be married to him.
Meemaw: Why do I come here? I got to find a cooler chick to talk to.

Quote from Missy

George Jr.: Uh, maybe when you're done, we can go down to the mall and hang out.
Veronica: Oh, I promised your sister I'd take her out for some girl time.

Missy: Take a hint, dummy.

Mary: No!

Quote from Missy

Mary: So good news. We're gonna have a houseguest for a couple days.

Quote from George Jr.

George Jr.: Here, let me show you around.
Veronica: Oh. O-Okay.
George Jr.: Of course you remember the living room, where we have our prayer group. And this is the dining room. That's where we'll dine. But in the mornings, we dine in the kitchen.
Of course, if you'd like a snack, that'd be in the refrigerator or the pantry. You know, where your snack foods would be.
Veronica: Sure.
George Jr.: Washer, dryer. Plus, we got those little sheets that smell nice and fight static cling. And here's our entertainment room.
Veronica: Hey, guys.
Missy: Hi.
Sheldon: Hello.
George Jr.: We don't have cable, but we do have all three major broadcast networks. Here's the bathroom, for hygiene and whatnot. And here's where you'll be sleeping.
Veronica: Did I take your room?
George Jr.: Yes, but I'll be on the couch. Which is right near the TV and the kitchen, so I'm peachy.

Quote from Meemaw

Dr. John Sturgis: I'm recreating our first date! The same restaurant, the same table, the same jacket. Different eyelashes, though, because they regenerate every two to three months.
Meemaw: Mine are the same, actually. They're fake.

Quote from Sheldon

George Jr.: I also hung a cross over the bed for you. It's just Popsicle sticks and glitter. I glued it together in Sunday school when I was a kid. [Veronica starts crying] Is-is it too much? I can take it down.
Veronica: [SNIFFLES] No, it's it's really sweet.
Sheldon: Why are you crying? Did Georgie bring up your unfortunate home life?
Veronica: Uh, no.
Sheldon: Good. My mom said not to, so that you would be comfortable.
Veronica: Thank you.
Sheldon: [staring] Are you comfortable?

Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

Dr. John Sturgis: Connie, will you do me the honor of being my wife?
Meemaw: Oh, John, I don't know.
Dr. John Sturgis: How can you not know? It's a binary decision.
Meemaw: It's more complicated th-than that.
Dr. John Sturgis: I don't see why. We're compatible.
Meemaw: [QUIETLY] I know.
Dr. John Sturgis: We enjoy each other's company.
Meemaw: I know.
Dr. John Sturgis: And we've become extremely proficient in the bedroom. There's very little wasted effort.
Meemaw: [QUIETLY] John, sit back down and lower your voice.
Dr. John Sturgis: Little help? Down is easier than up.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Mom?
Mary: Yes, honey?
Sheldon: Do I have to sit downwind of Georgie's cologne?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: See? This is the kind of nonsense you have to deal with when you're around kids.

Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

Missy: John I've already been married once. I wasn't really planning on ever doing it again.
Dr. John Sturgis: Why not?

Dr. John Sturgis: Well, what if I took your name? John Tucker, it sounds great. Like a football player or an astronaut.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: [knock knock knock] Veronica. [knock knock knock] Veronica.

Veronica: Thank you. This is very helpful.
Sheldon: I know.

Quote from Sheldon

Veronica: Is there anything else?
Sheldon: There is, but I'm not allowed to ask about it.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: How was your anniversary date with Dr. Sturgis?
Meemaw: You knew about that?
Sheldon: Yes.
Meemaw: So you knew he was gonna propose?

Quote from Meemaw

Dr. John Sturgis: I just think it's important for people to know that we're an official couple.

Veronica: Yup, I see it right here.

Quote from Meemaw

Mary: You know I'm right.
Meemaw: I know no such thing. It's my life, I don't have to do anything 'cause I'm "supposed to." I do it because I want to, and right now, I don't want to, end of story.

Quote from George Jr.

George Jr.: Hey, what you doin'?
Veronica: Helping your mom with laundry.
George Jr.: Oh, yeah. That's usually my job.

Quote from Missy

Veronica: Sorry, I know this isn't the most fun thing in the world.
Missy: I was happy just riding in the front seat of your car.

Quote from Veronica

Missy: You probably hear this a lot, but you're, like, princess pretty.
Veronica: Oh. I don't know about that. But you are definitely princess material.
Missy: Well, until I'm allowed to wear makeup, this is as hot as I get.
Veronica: You don't need makeup.
Missy: I hope you're right. Mom says I have to wait till I'm 16.
Veronica: Mm. That'll get here sooner than you think.
Missy: Sure doesn't feel like it.
Veronica: Don't be in a rush. Honestly, I'd rather be your age again.

Quote from Missy

Missy: Maybe, if we make a wish at the same time we could switch places.
Veronica: You think?
Missy: It's worth a try.
Veronica: Okay. What do we need to do?
Missy: We close our eyes and at the exact same time say, "I wish I could switch places."
Veronica: Ready? One, two, three.
Both: I wish I could switch places. Well?
Missy: I'm still here. You?
Veronica: Same.
Missy: That's too bad. I really wanted to drive home. Can I anyway?
Veronica: Sure.
Missy: Really?
Veronica: No.
