Jane Read: "Oh, Grandma Thora, please, just try to calm down, and tell us what happened."
Grandma Thora: "Well, you know my dog."
Jane Read: "Yes? the 1 you renamed Mr. Smutty?"
Grandma Thora: "Yeah, well this time he's really gone and done it."
Grandma Thora: "I took the turkey outta the oven, and he's lookin' at it like a pointer, and I thought 'That's kinda cute', when all of a sudden, he lunged, attacked, ran out the back door with it and tore it to shreds, and now, I don't have a turkey."
Fern: "Mr. Smutty is a bad dog............."
Grandma Thora: "From now on, his new name is Mr. Get the Heck Outta Here."
Grandma Thora: "Oh, what am I gonna do? my niece and her husband are coming for dinner."
Jane Read: "You know something?"
Grandma Thora: "What?"
Jane Read: "There's a place in downtown Elwood City that has pre cooked turkeys, and I'm sure they're open for at least another half an hour."
Grandma Thora: "Oh, I can't make it to downtown Elwood City."
Mr. Ratburn: "Well you could if I took you there."
Grandma Thora: "You'd do that for me?"
Mr. Ratburn: "Sure....."
Grandma Thora: "Oh, come on, let's go, time's a wastin'."
