Lois Quote #22

Quote from Lois in Call Me Mom

Marie: Well, pardon me for saying it, but isn't that a little hypocritical? I mean, here I am, ready to embrace this.
Lois: I know, and pardon me for saying this, but maybe in this case it really isn't up to you. I mean, well, heaven forbid you don't get your way for once. [laughs]
Marie: [faint chuckle] May I just ask, what the hell is that supposed to mean?
Lois: I'm just going by what I see around here.
Marie: At least I'm always here, not like some mothers.
Lois: Well, some mothers might say that you're here a little too much.


 ‘Call Me Mom’ Quotes

Quote from Debra

Ray: What's going on? What happened?
Debra: She rejected me.
Ray: What are you talking about?
Debra: Your mother. I went over there and I called her "Mom," and she turned me down.
Ray: Really?
Debra: I told her that I wanted to call her "Mom," and she just went, "That's all right."
Ray: Huh.
Debra: [hitting Ray with a pillow] Why did you make me do that?!
Ray: I didn't- I didn't make you do it! I was just trying to win an argument. I didn't think you would actually try it.
Debra: [resumes hitting Ray] I cannot believe her! She's unbelievable! Your mother is unbelievable!

Quote from Frank

Ray: Come on, Deb, huh? Don't feel sad.
Debra: Thanks for telling me how to feel, Ray. I've got a headache. I'm gonna go lie down. [goes upstairs]
Ray: What should I do? Should I go up there?
Robert: What would you say to her?
Ray: I don't know. What do you think?
Frank: That you should never go up there.
Ray: Should I talk to Mom?
Frank: [chuckles]
Robert: What are you gonna say to her?
Frank: Listen to me. This is about feelings. You know anything about feelings? Of course you don't. None of us do. So just sit down, shut up, loosen your pants. What more can we do?

Quote from Robert

Debra: Oh, good. You guys were there. Was that the most humiliating thing you have ever seen?
Robert: Brutal, Raymond.
Frank: I felt bad for you, sweetheart. Had trouble finishing my lunch.
Ray: What happened? After she said no, what did you do?
Debra: Just sat there like an idiot.
Robert: Us, too.
Debra: Marie just went about her business as if nothing had happened.
Robert: I know how you feel, Deb. That's just how she is. Only certain people are allowed in the pantheon of affection: the Pope, Frank Sinatra, Placido Domingo, and Raymond. You just gotta let it go. That's all. You gotta let it go!
Ray: Yeah. Like he did.
Robert: I know what. Maybe I'll start calling her "Marie." Bet she wouldn't even notice. "Hello, Marie." "Hello, Robbie. Have you seen Placido Domingo? Or Raymond?"
