Edith: They've known each other for two months and already engaged?
Louise: Yes. I blame it on daylight savings time.
Edith: There is one other place Archie is tickleish but I did not find that out until after we were married. The soles of his feet!
Louise: I am inviting you to Lionel's engagement party. You, Michael, and Gloria.
Louise: No "ands" Edith.
Louise: We'll be doing Archie a favor by not inviting him.
Edith: I guess that is very thoughtful of you.
Mother Olivia: George, you are just like your daddy. He couldn't finish his drinks either so I had to finish them all for him.
Archie: Hey there, Jefferson. That formal invitation you sent by your wife was very white of you.
Tom: So, what are you doing here, a white guy?
Archie: I'm the family's white friend.
George: Next thing I'll know he'll be calling us niggers!
Archie: Listen to that language. I haven't used that word in three years.
Archie: You might want to head for the door because there looks like there is fixing to be a race riot.
