Eugene Morris Jerome...It is the second worst name ever given to a male child. The first worst is Haskell Fleischmann...
If only I was born Italian...All the best Yankees are Italian...My mother makes spaghetti with ketchup, what chance do I have?
I felt her chest! When she grabbed me, I felt my first chest!
Attention, ladies and gentlemen! Today's game will be delayed because of my aunt Blanche's headache...
I love tense moments! Especially when I'm not the one they're all tense about.
If I had a choice between a tryout with the Yankees and actually seeing her [Nora's] bare breasts for two and a half seconds, I would have some serious thinking to do...
(On his father) "He was born at the age of forty-two...
It started out like a murder mystery in Blenheim castle. No one said a word, but everyone looked suspicious...It was so quiet, you could hear Laurie's soup going down her esophagus.
The tension in the air was so thick, you could cut it with a knife. Which is more than I could say for the liver."
It's amazing how quickly you recover from misery when someone offers you ice cream.
How am I going to become a writer if I don't know how to suffer? Actually, I'd give up writing if I could see a naked girl while I was eating ice cream.

Your father will give you plenty of stuff when he gets home!
Stay on your own side of the street. That's what they have gutters for.
From your lips to the Irish sweepstakes...
I never voted before in my life, why should I start with my own family?
STOP THAT YELLING! I HAVE A CAKE IN THE OVEN!
This is a family. The world doesn't survive without families...
You know me. I'm not happy unless I can worry. My family were worriers. Worriers generally marry fainters.
Pearls are like people. They like to go out and be seen once in a while.
Do you think you're the only one in this world who has troubles? We all have troubles. We all get our equal share.
How many beatings from Momma did I get from things that you did? How many dresses did I go without so that you could look like someone when you went out? I was the workhorse and you were the pretty one. You have no right to talk to me like that. No right.
To me good friends are strangers. But sisters are sisters.
