Bill: You want me to pinch you Donna?

Sophie: Do you think I'm letting you down?
Donna: Why would you even think that?
Sophie: Oh, because... of what you've done. I mean, the Dynamos, raising a kid... and running a business, all on your own.
Donna: Well, honey - I didn't have a choice. I couldn't go home. You know? When I got pregnant, my mother told me not to bother coming back. And I wouldn't have had it any other way. My God, look at what *we've* had.

Donna: Okay, now, the thing about the toilet... If it doesn't flush right away, just go, and come back in a while, and it should... Nothing works around here, except for me.

Donna: [about the three "dads"] They have no right to turn up like this. What have they ever done for their daughter? Huh?
Rosie: Donna, Donna, they didn't know she existed.
Donna: Well, they didn't need to know, did they? I've done a great job with Soph all by myself, and I won't be muscled out by an e... jaculation!

Donna: [at the wedding ceremony] And welcome to... to... Sophie's dad. I have to tell you, he is here.
Sophie: I know. I invited him.
Donna: You couldn't have. I don't know which one it is.

Sophie: I don't care if you slept with hundreds of men. You're my mom, and I love you so much.
Donna: [hugging her] Oh, Soph!
Donna: [to the congregation] And I haven't slept with *hundreds* of men.

Donna: [about the possible dads] I don't know where they are, I don't know why they're here, and I have brought this all on myself because I was a stupid, reckless little slut!
Tanya: Whoa-ho-ho-ho! Don't you sound like your mother!

Sam Carmichael: Am I getting this right? Sophie may be mine, but she may be Bill's or Harry's?
Donna: Yeah. Yes! That's right. And don't get all self-righteous with me, because you have no one but yourself to blame!
Sophie: Yeah, if you hadn't just dumped my mother and gone off and married somebody else...
Sam Carmichael: Hey, hey, wait a minute. I had to go home. I was engaged. But I told Lorraine I couldn't marry her and I came right back!
Donna: You... you... Why didn't you call me?
Sam Carmichael: Because I was crazy enough to think that you would be waiting for me. Only when I arrived, they told me you were off with some other guy. So... Lorraine called me an idiot and married me to prove it.

Tanya: [when a crack appears in the courtyard] What's going on?
Donna: [laughs] D'you feel it? The earth moved, darling. We're falling apart here.

Donna: Don't think about it. Come on. Let's go have fun.

Tanya: [talking about Donna's money troubles and her life in general] Yeah, but are you being taken care of?
Donna: What do you mean?
Tanya: Are you getting any?
Donna: Oh, you mean...

Donna: Ohh, look at my baby, her whole life ahead of her!
Sophie: Oh *please*, I'm getting married, I'm not joining a convent!

Rosie: [talking about Sophie] She's a chip off the old block!
Donna: If she were more like *me*, she wouldn't be getting married at 20.
Tanya: Or married at all!
