Stepmom (1998)
Ben Harrison: See Mom? I told you! I'm telepathetic.
Jackie Harrison: Telepathic.
Ben Harrison: That's what I said.

Ben Harrison: Do you think Isabel's pretty?
Jackie Harrison: Sure... if you like big teeth.

Ben Harrison: No one loves you like I do.
Jackie Harrison: No. No one ever will.

Jackie Harrison: I'm never, never going to forget this.
Anna Harrison: Never say "never."
Jackie Harrison: Well there's a loophole, you know. You can say "never, never" if you mean it enough to say it twice.

Isabel: Look down the road to her wedding. I'm in a room alone with her, fixing her veil, fluffing her dress, telling her no woman has ever looked so beautiful. And my fear is she'll think, "I wish my mom were here."
Jackie Harrison: And my fear is... she won't.

Isabel: You know, I never wanted to be a mom. Sharing it with you... that's one thing. It's another to be looking over my shoulder for the next twenty years, knowing someone else would have done it better... someone else would have done it right.
Jackie Harrison: What do you have that I don't?
Isabel: You're Mother Earth, incarnate.
Jackie Harrison: You're... hip, and fresh.
Isabel: You ride with Anna.
Jackie Harrison: You'll learn.
Isabel: You know every story, every wound, every memory. Their whole life's happiness is wrapped up in you... every single second. Don't you get it? Look down the road to her wedding. I'm in a room alone with her, fixing her veil, fluffing her dress, telling her no woman has ever looked so beautiful. And my fear is she'll be thinking, "I wish my mom was here."
Jackie Harrison: And mine is... she won't.

Jackie Harrison: You know, Ben was born in two hours, went right to the breast, and camped there for 4 days. His blanket looked just like a cape, even the nurses thought so. He loves hearing that story about how he was born a magician.
Isabel: What about her?
Jackie Harrison: 28 hours. The doctors wanted to go in and get her, but I knew she'd come at her own time. You can never rush her.
Isabel: I'll keep that in mind.

Isabel: You look tired.
Jackie Harrison: I hate when people say that. It's like a polite way of telling you that you look like shit.

Jackie Harrison: Just because you can't see something, doesn't mean it isn't there.

Isabel: I am so unbelievably sick of your imperious bullshit. I never said I was June-fucking-Clever...
Jackie Harrison: You don't use that kind of language in this house!
Isabel: ...and if every time life hits her hard you want to have a twelve hour conversation every third Tuesday of the month, go right ahead, lady, I have a life.
Jackie Harrison: Oh, and I don't?
[scoffs]
Jackie Harrison: You know what your problem is? You are so self-involved. You couldn't be a mother.
Isabel: Maybe the problem here is your daughter, and that she is a spoiled, wise-ass little brat.
Jackie Harrison: Get out of my house. Get out!
Isabel: [pause, she turns to go] Are you sure? I didn't see that on the schedule.

[Jackie is smoking marijuana]
Jackie Harrison: Yep. Life's a tradeoff. It's finally legal to smoke dope, but you got to have cancer.
Isabel: Are you dying?
Jackie Harrison: Not today.

Jackie Harrison: What are we going to tell the kids?
Luke: Maybe we should tell them the truth. They can handle it. It should've been me instead of you.
Jackie Harrison: I'll go along with that.

Ben Harrison: Mommy...
Jackie Harrison: What, sweetie?
Ben Harrison: If you want me to hate her I will.

Isabel: Maybe the problem is that your daughter is a spoiled, little brat!
Jackie Harrison: Get out of my house, get out.
Isabel: Are you sure? I didn't see that on the schedule.

Isabel: [backstage at the school Thanksgiving play] I have something to tell you.
Jackie Harrison: You're having Michael Jackson's baby.
Isabel: That, *and* Anna is totally over her head for Brad Kovitsky.
Jackie Harrison: [gasp] No!

Isabel: You know, I never wanted to be a mom. Sharing it with you... that's one thing. It's another to be looking over my shoulder for the next twenty years, knowing someone else would have done it better... someone else would have done it right.
Jackie Harrison: What do I have that you don't?
Isabel: You're Mother Earth, incarnate.
Jackie Harrison: You're... hip, and fresh.

[the children]

Jackie Harrison: It is not my job to make it easier for you it is my job to take care of those children and they don't wanna be with YOU
[she grabs her children's hands]

[Isabel takes a family Christmas photo]
Isabel: Why doesn't everybody get on the sofa for a picture, huh?
Jackie Harrison: [talks to Luke] Baby, can you put that birdcage on the floor for me?
Isabel: [sets the camera up for a second shot] And I'll set up here.
Luke: All right, there you go.
Isabel: On the count of three, I want to see big Christmas smiles. One, two... Benjamin.
[looks at Ben to smile]
Isabel: Three.

Isabel: Excellent.
Jackie Harrison: Good one. Okay, now let's get one with the whole family. Isabel?
Isabel: [Isabel smiles] Okay, let me just reset this. Get ready.
