A comic exchange (adult humor):
Martin: I was just admiring your picture of Jayne Mansfield there.
Nun: No, that's Jane Russell. Jayne Mansfield was the blonde one.
Martin: Yes, of course, yes. But they were both very big ... I mean the two of them ... they were huge ... Their careers.
Many more from IMDb:
Martin: The end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
Philomena: That's lovely, Martin. Did you just think of that?
Martin: No, it's T.S. Eliot
"You said you wanted to visit the Lincoln Memorial." "We could go and see Mr. Lincoln or we could watch on television 'Big Momma's House'. It's about a little black man pretending to be a fat black lady. They just showed some of it on the television and they're all chasing after him. It looked hilarious, Martin!"
SummaryAdd a Summary
The DVD was much better than the book. I usually don't say that! Interesting period of history about unwed moms sent to Catholic nuns. Punished for sins. Hard work for 3 years with children than children taken away and adopted against mothers wishes. Big money conflict in Ireland between govt. and church. Psalm 103 He knew me in my mother's womb.
