Loretta Haggers: [Referring to the Lombardi family] Someone just shot 'em.
Mary Hartman: Oh my God. The whole family?
Loretta Haggers: All five of them, plus two goats and eight chickens.

Mary Hartman: Where's Grandpa?
Martha Shumway: Watching Years of Our Days to Live. It's his favorite.
Mary Hartman: Oh, I don't like that one.
Martha Shumway: No?
Mary Hartman: No, all the girls look alike, and they're all divorced, and all the husbands fool around with someone at work. I like a more realistic program where everybody's happy.
Mary Hartman: Oh, poor Davey.

Sgt. Foley: No, he's not hurt. And I'm afraid what happened to him was not an accident.
Mary Hartman: I don't know what you mean.

Mary Hartman: [puzzled] Indecent exposure?
Sgt. Foley: That's right. I'm afraid, Miss Hartman, that your grandfather is the Fernwood Flasher.
Mary Hartman: [to Sergeant Foley, stunned] Listen. Uh, um...I can't talk now. I'm on the phone.
