Nina Quote #77

[on Mary's film:]
Mrs. Dubcek: The Solomons are lovely people. Very nice. They're clean. They never complain, and, as for the noise, well, I think they've gotten used to it.
Mary: [v.o.] How do you think they function without a traditional mother figure?
Mrs. Dubcek: You said you were going to let me tap dance. When do I get to tap dance?

Quote from Red, White & Dick
Mary: I'm sorry. I get a little passionate about this. You know, my family came over on the Mayflower.
Dick: The Mayflower?
Nina: Oh, boy.
Mary: That's right. Neddy Albright was one of the first settlers to come to America on the Mayflower.
Dick: Nina, was your family on the Mayflower?
Nina: No, we came over on a different boat. But I'm sure we hooked up with the Albrights soon after we arrived.
