The Cat Why?
Maggie:  “Who are you?  I am Maggie the Cat.” Buster:  “What’s Uncle Brick doing on the floor?”
Jealous Stealin' Chickens
Dixie:  “You’re just jealous because you can’t have babies!” Mae:  “Gooper!  What all have the kiddies been shot fo’?”  Gooper:  “Everything but stealin’ chickens, I guess!”
Lap Cake
Big Mama:  “Hey, folks!  Ever see a preacher in a lady’s lap?” Big Mama:  “Here comes Big Daddy’s birthday!
Skinamarinka Blow
No-Neck Monsters:  “Skinamarinka—do. We love you.” Big Daddy:  “Take a deep breath an’ blow out th’ goddam candles on th’ cake!”
Big Daddy:  “You want liquor that bad?” Big Daddy:  “You’re my son, an’ I'm goin’' to straighten you out, now that I’m straightened out, I’m goin’ to straighten you out!”
Buck Passing Bang!
Big Daddy:  “You been passing the buck.  This disgust with mendacity is disgust with yourself.” No-Neck Monsters:  “Bang!  Bang!  Bang!”
Surroundin’ Malignant
Big Mama:  “Why’re you all surroundin’ me?—like this?  Why’re you all starin’ at me like this an’ makin’ signs at each other?” Doc Baugh:  “We had this bit of tissue run through the laboratory an’ I’m sorry t’ say the test was positive on it.  It’s malignant.”
First Born A Plan
Maggie overhears from the gallery.  Mae:  “Gooper's your son, Mama, he's your first born!” Gooper:  “Now this is not—not final, or anything like it, this is just a preliminary outline.  But it does provide a—basis—a design—a—possible, feasible—plan.”
Time Announcement
Big Mama:  “Time goes by so fast.  Nothin’ can outrun it.  Death commences too early—almost before you’re half-acquainted with the other.” Maggie:  “Announcement of life beginning!  A child is coming, sired by Brick, and out of Maggie the Cat!”
Life How Do You Know?
Big Daddy:  “Uh-huh, this girl has life in her body, that’s no lie! Brick:  “Mae, Sister Woman, how d’ you know that I don’t sleep with Maggie?”
