Aunt Sarah Quote #52
Gabriel: Um... [notices Mary's book] Ah! Emily Bronte. Wow, what a genius.
Aunt Sarah: We'll have to take your word for it, Gabriel, for we don't know her.
Quote from Orla
Erin: That Eileen Rafferty story did not add up, girls.
Michelle: Do you think your ma's getting plumbed by the plumber?
Orla: Well, I never trusted her, not since the day I met her.
Erin: She's your auntie, Orla. The day you met her you were a new-born baby.
Quote from Orla
Erin: How's it going? [Clare gives a "so-so" hand gesture] You're really not gonna talk for 24 hours?
Orla: Yeah, that's tough. You're better off not breathing.
Erin: Would she be, Orla? Or... would she be dead?
Orla: It's not doing me any harm.
Orla: I'm not breathing for Children in Need.
Erin: That's happening now, is it, you're currently not breathing?
Quote from Aunt Sarah
Aunt Sarah: Shauna Sharkey's niece works for the company, you see.
Ma Mary: Right.
Aunt Sarah: Every voucher entitles you to a free item of make-up, a lip liner, a mascara...
Ma Mary: Shite!
Aunt Sarah: ..an eyebrow pencil or what have you. I nearly took her hand off, Mary.
Ma Mary: This is all I need. Gerry!
Aunt Sarah: But there's a catch.
Ma Mary: I thought there might be.
Aunt Sarah: The retailer will accept one voucher per customer only. Now, what that means, Mary...
Ma Mary: I know what it means, Sarah. Gerry!
Aunt Sarah: It means I can't hand over 22 vouchers and say, "Give us items."
Ma Mary: No? Gerry!
Aunt Sarah: But if we were to head up to town with a bag of disguises.
Ma Mary: Bag of disguises?
Aunt Sarah: Couple of quick changes in the Richmond Centre toilets.
Ma Mary: No chance!
Quote from Episode One
Sarah: Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm not enjoying this bomb.
Sarah: Disgusting and disgraceful. I have an appointment in Tropicana at 12:00. 15 minutes in the stand up. But sure, I'll not get over the bridge at this rate. It's going to play havoc with my build-up. This is what they want. They want ordinary people to suffer. This is what it's all about.
Erin: I'm pretty sure interfering with your sunbed sessions isn't very high up on anyone's political agenda, Aunt Sarah.
Sarah: I wouldn't be so sure.
Quote from The Concert
News Presenter: [on TV] SDLP leader John Hume has again called for cross party peace talks...

Mary: Aye, I sort of hope it works out for all of us, Sarah.
Quote from The Agreement
News Anchor: [on TV] Some of the proposed reforms have proved extremely controversial, particularly the early release of paramilitary prisoners. And now, with only days until the referendum takes place, voters across the country must get to grips with this booklet, a 30-page document laying out the Good Friday Agreement in simple terms...
Granda Joe: Simple terms! Simple terms my arse. I've read through thon introduction 30 bloody times. I'm still none the wiser.
Ma Mary: [opens microwave] Wow.
Aunt Sarah: Well, according to Shauna Sharkey, if you vote yes, you're allowed to swing both ways.
Da Gerry: What's that now?
Aunt Sarah: Well, you can be Irish, you can be British, or you can be bi.
Da Gerry: OK, I don't think "bi" is the correct term.
Granda Joe: Says here you can hold both passports.
Ma Mary: Two passports? That'd come in handy. I'm forever losing mine. I think I wouldn't mind being bi, you know.
