Repairman: All those kids yours, mister. Or is this a picnic?
Frank: They're all mine and believe me, it's no picnic!

Man on street: Hey, Noah. What are you doing with that Ark?
Frank: Collecting animals like the good Lord told me brother. All we need now is a jackass. Hop in!

Mailman: All those kids yours?
Frank: Oh, these aren't so many. You ought to see the ones we left behind.
Mailman: How you ever feed them?
Frank: Oh, they come cheaper by the dozen.

Frank: [escorting Anne out of the house on her first date] I know it's not your fault, Lillie, but things would have been a whole lot easier if you'd taken my advice and had all boys.
Lillian: I'm sorry, dear. I'll try to be more careful with the next dozen.
