I'll never get drunk anymore.

[learning that the family must move to New York] It'll take me at least a week to dig up all my dolls in the cemetery.

[to Esther] Did he [Santa Claus] come yet? I've been waiting such a long time. And I haven't seen a thing. How will he know how to find us next year? He's so used to coming here.

[smashing her snowmen] Nobody's going to have them. Not everybody's going to New York. I'd rather kill them if we can't take them with us.

Poor Margaretta!
