Quotes

Violet: (on podcast) Hey, listeners. Welcome to my podcast, The Mother of All Problems. I'm your host, Violet.
Christy: Violet? My Violet?
Violet: The holidays are around the corner, so great time to dive into horror stories about growing up with a drunken stripper who I unfortunately had to call Mommy
Christy: Wait, I'm the Mother of All Problems?!


[After the girls listen to an episode of Violet's podcast]
Marjorie: Honey, I know this is hard. I remember how humiliating it was when my son brought a picture of me to school for show and tell.
Bonnie: What's wrong with that?
Marjorie: It was my mug shot.

Jill: The episodes have clever titles. Let's listen to "Jell-O Shots and the Truth About Santa."
Bonnie: That's enough. We're done listening
Jill: Ooh! There's one called "My Grandmother, the Life Preserver".
Bonnie: Well, maybe we have time for one more


[Listening to an episode of Violet's podcast]
Christy: Please don't tell the school bus story... (pauses to listen) Not true! Only one of my boobs popped out!
Bonnie: Still going, huh?
Christy: I can't stop. I keep thinking, "Maybe in the next episode she'll say something nice."
Bonnie: Quit torturing yourself.
Christy: Easy for you to say she calls you the Life Preserver
Bonnie: I know. It's so sweet. Adorable.
