Sophia Petrillo: How many challenges do I have left in life? Seeing if I can get more than half-way across the street before the "Don't Walk" sign comes on... trying to stay awake on the john... hoping it *is* the john...

Blanche Devereaux: [a young man comes to the door asking for Blanche's husband] My husband passed away a few years ago.

David: Oh, I see.

Blanche Devereaux: What did you want George for?

David: I'm sellin' encyclopedias, and his name was at the top of my list of leads. I hope I haven't bothered you, and I'm truly sorry about your husband.

[he leaves]

Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Oh, now that is really odd. I mean, if he's selling encyclopedias, why didn't he try to sell us a set?

Rose Nylund: And you know what else is so strange about it. He didn't bring them in.

Blanche Devereaux: Rose, no encyclopedia salesman lugs around 26 volumes door to door.

Rose Nylund: Are you kidding? In St Olaf, they carry 52.

Blanche Devereaux: Why?

Rose Nylund: Balance!

Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Rose, why don't they just carry thirteen in each hand?

Rose Nylund: [pauses to think it over] Excuse me, I have to make a phone call.

Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: I knew I never should have gotten involved in this mother-daughter pageant. I just wish I'd known how to say "No" to it.

Rose Nylund: I know what you mean. I should have said "No" to the Miss St Olaf beauty pageant. It was 1951. That was the first year they let humans enter, too.

Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: [Sophia and Dorothy come home after the Shady Pines mother-daughter beauty pageant] The big news is, we beat Gladys Goldfine, right, Ma?

Sophia Petrillo: Ahh, it was a hollow victory. Time has taken its toll on Gladys. She's not the fierce competitor she once was.

Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Y'know, for the talent section, she was supposed to do a medley from The Fantasticks. She started with "Try to Remember" and... she couldn't.
