Yours, Mine and Ours is a 1968 film, directed by Melville Shavelson and starring Lucille Ball, Henry Fonda and Van Johnson. Before its release, it had three other working titles: The Beardsley Story, Full House, and His, Hers, and Theirs.

The film was remade in 2005 with Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo as Frank and Helen Beardsley.


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] Darling! What happened?
Phillip: Nothing.
Helen: Who did that to you?
Phillip: One of the kids. [points at Sister Mary] *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.
