- Repairman: All those kids yours, mister. Or is this a picnic?
- Frank: They're all mine and believe me, it's no picnic!
- Man on street: Hey, Noah. What are you doing with that Ark?
- Frank: Collecting animals like the good Lord told me brother. All we need now is a jackass. Hop in!
- Mailman: All those kids yours?
- Frank: Oh, these aren't so many. You ought to see the ones we left behind.
- Mailman: How you ever feed them?
- Frank: Oh, they come cheaper by the dozen.
- Frank: No person with inner dignity is ever embarrassed.
- Frank: Darling, you know I am happy with our little brood, but you should have had more boys!
- Lillian: I'm sorry, dear. I'll try to be more careful with the next dozen.
