Margie: Sister, did you know that June is aquarium month? Let's buy us an aquarium. I love to watch fish shows on TV so it'd be nice to have our own. I don't want any big-mouthed fish because your big mouth is more than enough for me.
Edna: Tell me this, sister. Who's going to clean out that aquarium when it gets dirty? This isn't some Disney movie where the fish can take care of themselves.
Margie: Edna, you're just being silly. Nobody cleans the oceans or rivers so it's obvious that the fish clean up their own living area. Unlike you.
Edna: I'm going to call the pet store and tell them not to let you in. With an attitude like that, we'll have an expensive tank filled with dead fish inside of a week. Besides, how were you planning on paying for this aquarium? Maybe Mary Bailey will let you wait tables for tip money.
Margie: Edna, you are a true idjit. You'll be responsible for cleaning the aquarium since you'll be the one buying it! I just want to watch your pretty fish.
Edna: Margie, it never ceases to amaze me how you can flap your gums sixty ways to Sunday and yet you never say anything intelligent. Truly, it's one of the wonders of the world--or, at least, of Jericho.
