Day 5-Favorite Quote

Here is another tough one.  We toss quotes around here all the time.  As a matter of fact, a few years ago, we had to make a rule that movie quotes did not constitute dinner conversation.  When that didn't improve the dinner conversation, we started charging a nickle to the vacation jar each time someone quoted a movie.

I am going to let you guess where these quotes originated.

One you might hear often around here is:

 "Did I ask to be awakened 3 and a half hours before breakfast?"

Anytime there is an emergency or disaster in our house, such as yesterday when my in-laws showed up unexpectedly and we were all cleaning in our pajamas,

"That is why you always want to have a fire extinguisher right next to the stove."
And one of my all time favorites:

"If you drink coffee when you are young, your children will be born naked and illiterate."
And one of many that I love about family:

"The family.  We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. "
And an oldie but goodie


"But Mortimar, you're going to love me for my mind, too."
