In honor of Mother’s day… This is a list of my top 5 favorite tv moms.
Starting at #5….
Harriette Winslow from Family Matters
Harriet was a no nonsense kinda lady who made the best “uhidontTHINKso” faces. I wish I could just give a look like that and have every one just know.
Harriette: “For my birthday, you bought me an exercise trampoline?”
Carl: “Yes and that’s not all!!
Harriette: “Lose weight, feel great at chicago’s premiere health spa, Hip whippers? You think I’m fat?”
Carl: “No No Harriette you’re the one who said you’re fat. You’ve been saying it for weeks.”
Harriette: “and you agree with me?”
Carl: “no no you know Harriette, it’s the thought that counts.”
Harriette: “and you think I’m FAT?”
Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development
It’s amazing how awful this woman is.
Lucille: “Get me a vodka rocks.”
Michael: “Mom, it’s breakfast.”
Lucille: “and a piece of toast.”
Roseanne Conner from Roseanne
As annoying as Roseanne can really be… she’s relatable. The meals they eat, the money, the house, the jobs, the weight. It’s like annoying real life.
Roseanne: “ohh, but honey, you just fixed dinner three years ago!”
Frankie Heck from The Middle
I loved this season when she tried to make Mike friends with the neighbor… or this last episode where they bought her yellow pants for mother’s day when she told all four of them exactly what she wanted. My favorite ever was when she ate the toe nails in the bag of chips and then ran away because it was just..too..much!!
Frankie Heck: “I’m serious, if this was ‘Supernanny’ and we saw this morning on hidden home cameras, Jo would crucify us!”
ANNDDD #1!!!! ….
Virginia Chance from Raising Hope
I love so much about Virginia. I love that she was a young mom and still Burt after all these years. I love that she cleans houses and hoards other people’s stuff that she’s given. I love that she uses coupons and that she miss uses words a lot annndd I do that a lot too… the other day I asked, “Do you know where the needlesporin is??” appartently they did not, but they did know where the neosporin was.
Virginia: “A baby will dramastically change your life!”
Virginia: “If you want to be pigheaded, that’s your preroxative!”
Virginia: “Stop procrasturbating!”
Virginia: “How’s your philostrophical journey for the meaning of life going?”
Virginia: “Some of that evilness has to be hermeditary!”
Virginia: “Congo line!”
