  • Bernadette: [to Felicia] That's just what this country needs: a cock in a frock on a rock.

  • Bernadette: [to Shirley] Now listen here, you mullet. Why don't you just light your tampon, and blow your box apart? Because it's the only bang you're ever gonna get, sweetheart!

    Bernadette: There, now you're fucked!

  • Bernadette: No, I'll join this conversation on the proviso that we stop bitching about people, talking about wigs, dresses, bust sizes, penises, drugs, night clubs, and bloody Abba!

  • Bernadette: [to Felicia] I've said it before, and I'll say it again: "No more fucking ABBA!"

  • Bernadette: [to Tick] Don't "Darling", me, Darling. Look at you. You've got a face like a cat's arse.

    Bob: Herpes. If she's good, she'll heal.

    Bernadette: You stuff 'em back in and ask for a refund.

I don't know if that ugly wall of suburbia's been put there to stop them getting in, or us getting out. Come on. Don't let it drag you down. Let it toughen you up. I can only fight because I've learnt to. Being a man one day and a woman the next isn't an easy thing to do.

  • Bernadette: [to Bob] Believe me, Bob, these days gentlemen are an endangered species. Unlike bloody drag queens who just keep breeding like rabbits.

  • Bernadette: [to Tick about Felicia] One more push, I'm gonna to smack his face so hard he'll have to stick his toothbrush up his arse to clean his teeth!

  • Bernadette: We've only recently discovered that young Anthony here, bats for both teams.

    Mitzi: I do not!

    Felicia: Oh, so we're straight?

    Mitzi: No.

    Felicia: Oh, we're not. So we're a donut puncher, after all?

    Mitzi: No.

    Felicia: Then what the hell are we?

    Mitzi: I don't fuckin' know.

  • Mitzi: [about Trumpet] , You know, I never heard him play.

    Bernadette: Play? He didn't *play*, dear. Trumpet didn't have a single musical bone in his body. No, Trumpet had an unusually large foreskin. So large, in fact, that he could wrap the entire thing around a Monte Carlo biscuit.

  • Felicia: Oh, you can't do that with a ping-pong ball!

    Bernadette: Do you wanna bet?

    Mitzi: [to Bernadette, who has started walking off] Where are *you* going?

    Felicia: No, wait. Stop! Shit!.

  • Felicia: How long have we been on the road?

    Bernadette: Four and a half hours.

  • Bernadette: How long is the run?

    Tick: Four weeks. Equity minimum, two shows a night, accommodation included.

  • Bernadette: [to Felicia] At least the bump on your head is bigger than your prick!

  • Felicia: Well, girls, what can I say? Here's to a secret very well kept.

    Bernadette: Shame it's not gonna stay that way, isn't it?

  • Bernadette: [to the Bartender] Hello. Could I please have a Stoli and tonic, a Bloody Mary and a lime daiquiri, please?

    Shirley: Well! Look what the cat dragged in! What have we got here, eh? A couple of showgirls, have we? Where did you ladies come in from? Uranus?

    Bernadette: [to the Bartender] Could I please have a Stoli...

    Shirley: No! Ya can't have! Ya can't have nothing! We've got nothing here for people like you! Nothin'!

  • Bernadette: [to Tick] Oh, that's a novel idea. Let's stuff ourselves to death. Imagine the headlines: "Whales Beach Themselves In The Outback". "Mystery Bum Sticks Dead In Drag".

  • Bernadette: [to Felicia and Tick] Ladies, start your engines!

  • Bernadette: [to Felicia] Do tell us your hilarious joke.

  • Bernadette: [to Tick] Take the shortcut.

  • Bernadette: [to Tick] You've got to be fucking joking!

  • Peyton Nichols: So how does the world look through cracked glasses?

    Bernadette: Cracked.

  • Bernadette: The world is so full of pervs. That guy at table 10 is the worst. Every week, a new bimbo. I swear, he leers at my tits, one more time, he's gonna regret it.

  • Madeleine: Did they sign a contract?

    Bernadette: It wasn't clear; all I know is they were obviously influenced by someone's, you know, high-falutin' talkin'.

  • Bernadette: [from jail cell above the street] You know why I'm in here, boy?

    Tommy Warshaw: No.

    Bernadette: I murdered my husband, in his sleep, with my bare hands. I'm a murderer! I *hate* men! And if they let me out this bitch, I'll kill again! I mean, if you get in my way, I might even kill you!

    Tommy Warshaw: I don't care.

  • Bernadette: [from her apartment window] Tommy.

    Bernadette: It's alright. She understands. Your poor mama. She understands a boy have to go away before he come back. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

    Tom Warshaw: [breaks down in tears]

    Bernadette: Run, Tommy.

    Tom Warshaw: I don't have to run anymore. Lady, I can walk now.

    Bernadette: I know you can walk. And I know you can dance. But I'm sayin' this is a bad neighborhood for a lone white boy. Now, run.

    [mocks running with her arms]

    Bernadette: Run! Run! Run, Tommy!

    Tom Warshaw: [turns and goes]

  • Prudie Drummond: I'm in love with one of my students. I mean, nothing's happened, much. It could if I let it... I fantasize about him constantly.

    Prudie Drummond: He looks at me like he's the spoon, and I'm this dish of ice cream.

  • Bernadette: How's Sylvia doing without Daniel?

    Allegra: She's still stuck in the wounded stage. When she's ready for anger, I'm so there.

  • Jocelyn: I'm warning you, if Grigg starts making little remarks, I'm gonna walk out.

    Bernadette: You two just keep it together for one more book.

  • Jocelyn: Sex is messy. Maybe Mrs. Dashwood prefers a more well-ordered life.

    Grigg Harris: Maybe that's why she's such a minor character.

    Jocelyn: I think if you read Austen's novels...

    Grigg Harris: Oh, I have. You wanted me to, and I did.

    Katy: No, no! That's not true! That's not true?

  • Bernadette: You can shove your friendly face up your not so friendly arse.

  • Margaret: Crispina, why did you want to kill yourself?

    Bernadette: Jesus, that's a stupid thing to ask, Elizabeth!

    Margaret: I'm just trying to stop her from killing herself.

    Bernadette: I know what you're trying to do. I just don't know why you're doing it.

  • [last lines]
