: I do not know what to do about you, child! Jen Lindley
: Please, don't preach to me right now. Evelyn 'Grams' Ryan
: No, there'll be no talk about God. You leave him out of it. This is between you and me. What I witnessed tonight is something I never want to see again, not in my house, not in my lifetime! Jen Lindley
: I had the situation under control. You don't have to get upset at me. Evelyn 'Grams' Ryan
: I am not upset, I am sick! I will not allow you to slide back into your reprehensible, New York behavior. Not while you're under my care. You will not disrespect me. Jen Lindley

: What do you object to, Mrs. Ryan? The fact that I'm black and she's white? Or the fact that we're unmarried and about to have a child born out of sin? Evelyn 'Grams' Ryan
: What I object to, more than any of that, is when children raise children. When young people like Bessie and yourself have no background in parenting a mixed race baby. Get ready, Bodie. When that child is born, people will look upon him as different. Bessie Potter
: Half-black, half-white, it doesn't matter. This child will be 100% loved.
Evelyn "Grams" Ryan
: A moment. A single moment of true joy is more powerful than a lifetime of sorrow.
: Oww! A piece of crab shell. That's what I need right now, a chipped tooth. It'll keep men away from me for good. Andie
: If that doesn't work, you can always join me in the nunnery this summer. Jack
: At least you got to have relationships before they failed. Evelyn "Grams" Ryan
: Good grief, you all sound like a bunch of old ladies!
