Beverly Quote #971
Essie Karp: I mean, I knew Babs had range, but watching her play a young male farmer? I mean, transcendent.
Beverly: Oh, well, speaking of cookbooks-
Virginia Kremp: Uh, no one's speaking of cookbooks, Beverly. We were actually just talking about "Yentl."
Beverly: Yeah, well, now speaking of cookbooks. Um, did I mention I'm writing a cookbook?
Essie Karp: You mean the cookbook you've somehow managed to work into every conversation in the last month?
Beverly: That's probably the one, yes.
Quote from Murray
Virginia Kremp: Ladies, it seems we have a visitor.
Murray: This will only take a second. Uh, Marcie, Shelly, Tabitha. Um, I'm sorry, I forgot your name.
Essie Karp: You've actually forgotten all our names. And if Beverly sent you, you can tell her-
Murray: Ho, ho, ho, ho! She did not send me. I came on my own to let you guys know what a great friend she is.
Linda Schwartz: Who only wants to talk about herself.
Murray: Yes. But to me, she only talks about you guys.
Virginia Kremp: Murray, it's sweet you're here and honestly surprising to see you out of your chair, but we know it's not true.
Murray: Oh, but it is true. She was so jazzed when Jimothy won that Flower Grower of the Year Award.
Virginia Kremp: It's Charles, and, um, when I mentioned it to her, she didn't seem to care.
Murray: But she does care. And you, uh, Cindy? Your place in Florida? She's doing everything she can to get me down there.
Essie Karp: It's Essie. And really?
Murray: And you, Patty, she cannot stop talking about your son Stevie and how he can go to any Ivy League School that he wants.
Linda Schwartz: It's Geoff. But that's sweet.
Murray: Look, I know she talks a lot about her family. But to her, you're family.
Quote from Beverly
Essie Karp: I'll tell ya what. If you can go ten minutes without making a single reference to yourself.
Linda Schwartz: Your kids.
Virginia Kremp: Your opinions.
Essie Karp: Your sweaters.
Virginia Kremp: Your couponing expertise.
Essie Karp: How Farrah Fawcett stole your look.
Linda Schwartz: Your matchmaking.
Virginia Kremp: Let's not forget about the cookbook.
Essie Karp: Then you'll have proven us wrong.
Beverly: And what happens when I immediately prove you all wrong?
Virginia Kremp: Well, then, we will admit you're right, and then for the next ten brunches, all we'll do is talk about you.
Beverly: That's my dream. Challenge accepted, suckas.
Quote from The Darryl Dawkins Dance
Beverly: [beep] me sideways. I have raised some thoughtful children.
