Bill Fordham: You ready for this?
Barbara Weston: No. No way.
Mattie Fae Aiken: Look at your boobs! Last time I saw you, you looked like a little boy.
‘Little’ Charles Aiken: I missed Uncle Bev’s funeral!
Charles Aiken: That don’t mean anything compared to what you have in your heart.
Charles Aiken: Dear Lord, we ask that you watch over this family in this sad time. Oh, Lord, we’re truly blessed in our fellowship, our togetherness. We recognize now more than ever the power, the joy of family. Amen.
‘Little’ Charles Aiken: Amen.
Charles Aiken: Let’s eat.
Beverly Weston: She takes pills; Valium, Vicodin, Zanex.
Beverly Weston: “Life is very long”; T.S. Elliot. Not the first person to say it, certainly not the first person to think it. Absolutely Goddamn right.
Violet Weston: Bill, where you living now?
Bill Fordham: I beg your pardon?
Violet Weston: You and Barbara separated, right? Or are you divorced already? Is there a younger woman involved?
Barbara Weston: You’ve said enough on this topic.
Bill Fordham: Yes.
Violet Weston: Well, see. The odds are against you there, babe.
Ivy Weston: Mom, I believe women don’t grow more attractive with age.
Karen Weston: Well, I disagree.
Violet Weston: It’s not really a matter of opinion, Karen, dear. You’ve only just started to prove it yourself.
Charles Aiken: So, I’m curious. You don’t eat meat of any kind?
Jean Fordham: Right. When you eat meat, you ingest an animal’s fear.
Violet Weston: Ingest what? It’s fur?!
Jean Fordham: Fear!
Charles Aiken: You can’t eat fear!
Bill Fordham: Our kid is trying to deal with this mad house you dragged her into!
Barbara Weston: This isn’t a mad house, this is my home.
Bill Fordham: Yeah, think about that statement for a second.
Violet Weston: I have an Indian in my house.
Barbara Weston: They’re called Native Americans, Mom.
Violet Weston: They aren’t any more native than me.
Barbara Weston: In fact, they are.
Violet Weston: Let’s call the dinosaurs Native Americans while we’re at it.
Violet Weston: Soon you’ll be gone and never to return.
Barbara Weston: Don’t start with that.
Violet Weston: You’re father, you broke his heart when you moved away.
Barbara Weston: That is widely unfair.
Violet Weston: You were Beverly’s favorite, you know that?
Barbara Weston: I prefer to think my parents loved their children equally.
Violet Weston: I’m sure you prefer to think that Santa Clause brought you presents too.
Charles Aiken: You are in rare form today, Vi.
Violet Weston: I’m just truth telling. Some people are antagonized by the truth.
Violet Weston: In my day families stayed together.
Ivy Weston: You supposed to be smoking?
Violet Weston: Is anybody supposed to be smoke?!
Barbara Weston: Marriage is hard.
Karen Weston: That’s one thing about Mom and Dad, you gotta tip your hat to anybody who could stay married that long.
Ivy Weston: Karen, he killed himself.
Barbara Weston: Thank God we can’t tell the future, we’d never get out of bed.
Misery loves family.
