I haven't seen this movie in over 25 years, but it made me laugh so hard. I loved when Karen Valentine's character goes undercover in the bar and her fiance and future mother-in-law show up.


"He's just a guy. He bought me a drink. Is that a crime?"

"Is that what they call it these days?"

Or "I never could stand that show" after Cloris Leachman destroys her CB with the tire iron :)

"...If it's old sourpuss Fulton that you're worried about, well, he wouldn't know a good minister if God put his arm around him and said, 'That's my boy!'..."

"Are you a minister or Batman?"

That is my absolute favorite line and I use it alot, even though no ones knows what movie I am referencing.

Not a line but my favorite moment is when Cloris Leachman holds up her broken nails during the car chase. She is priceless.

Ruth Buzzi identifying herself as the "Ecumetical Enchantress". I don't know why, but that's always stuck in my head.

Ruth Buzzi's line about "I haven't has so much fun since I got snowed in at an Elk's convention" is a sly wink to adult audiences at the time who knew her as the continual old maid character on the Dean Martin celebrity roasts.

Also the scene where the ladies decide if they're going to join the action:

(Cleo Jackson/Clunker)-I'm in. They got their hooks into my brother-in-law. He can't get out and can't get even. You *bet* I'm in.

(Rose Delany/Blarney Stone)-If it keeps me from cleanin' the oven, I'm game!

(Jane/June Bride)-I could change my tennis to Tuesday and my macramé to Thursday.

(Vickie/Kiddy Car)-I'm proud to do my part to help the government...tell me, do you have babysitting?

(FBI Agent Marv) BABYSITTING? Lady this is, this is...(turns to his partner), this is *Tom's* department! Tom will answer all your questions.

Men, if you're willing to fight for our people, I want you!
