She's makin' a pecan pie... for me!
That figures.
(Woman) Who is it, Jessie?
- Hello, Mama.
- Well, I just swan. Marnie!

If you're not the very limit.
I can't take in the way you jump
all over the place like you do.

(Mama) Boston, Massachusetts.
Elizabeth, New Jersey.

I brought you
some chrysanthemums.

Those gladiolas are brand fresh.
Miss Cotton brought 'em last night.

I never could stand gladiolas.
I ' ll get rid of these.

For land's sake - Marnie,
now watch the dripping.

Here, Jessica, why don't you
take these home to your mother?

She don't get home from work till 6::00.
I'm supposed to stay here till 6::00.
Take them to the kitchen then.
Just get rid of them.

Take 'em to the kitchen
before they drip all over.

We could stand gladiolas!
I send you plenty of money.
You don't have to be a baby-sitter.

Whoever said I did have to?
It's my pleasure.

That smart little ol' Jessie.
Marnie, if you could just hear
some of the things that she says.

Oh, but I do.
Seems I get a report
in exhaustive detail

on all the bright sayings
of ol' Jessie Cotton.

What's more, every time I come home,
she's roosting here.

I see that you've lighted up
your hair, Marnie.

- A little. Why? Don't you like it?
- No.

Too-blonde hair always looks like a
woman's tryin' to attract the man.

Men and a good name
don't go together.

I brought you something, Mama.
Now what have you thrown
good money away on?

Oh, Marnie.
