- Frank: [narrating] It was a typical wedding: enemies of the bride on the right, enemies of the groom on the left.
- Jean: You mean he doesn't know about us?
- Helen: Well. Of course he does, Darling!
- Jean: All of us?
- Colleen: Oh, Mother. That's so romantic! You lied to him!
- Helen: I did not lie to him! I just didn't have the nerve to tell him the whole truth!
- Colleen: Mmm, I understand! No man wants a liaison with a woman with eight children!
- Janette: What's a liaison?
- Colleen: An affair.
- Janette: That's what I thought.
- Jean: Me too.
- Phillip: I'm legal!
- Mary: I got there as fast as I could, Sister Mary. What is it this time?
- Mary: Why don't you ask Phillip?
- Helen: Phillip?
[Phillip turns around, revealing a black eye]
- Helen: Darling! What happened?
- Phillip: Nothing.
- Helen: Who did that to you?
- Phillip: One of the kids.
[points at Sister Mary]
- Phillip: *She* started it. She says I'm not legal.
- Helen: What?
- Phillip: And Mike isn't my brother.
- Helen: Of course he's your brother.
- Phillip: Then my name's Phillip Beardsley.
- Mary: Phillip North.
- Phillip: There she goes again.
- Mary: Sister, couldn't you - couldn't you just call him Phillip Beardsley?
- Mary: I'm sorry, but the school requires that we use their legal names.
- Phillip: Let's go to another school.
- Helen: Sister, I, uh... I understand your legal problem, but you must try to understand mine. You see, I'm trying to bring two families together, and this is the first sign that I may be succeeding. So, I really would appreciate it if you'd let Phillip sign his name Beardsley.
- Mary: But legally, it's North.
- Mary: But it's more important that emotionally, it's Beardsley.
- Mary: North.
- Helen: Beardsley.
- Mary: North!
- Helen: Beardsley, Beardsley, Beardsley!
- Phillip: Watch out, Mom. You might get a black eye.
