She was to play Melanie Griffith’s mother. It turned into a catfight. Melanie wore it to Stormi’s to try and get the attention of this guy she thought was cute. However, a lady robbed the place and injured someone. She was bleeding a lot, and the cute guy helped as he’s a doctor. He needed something compressive for to stop the bleeding and she offered her Spanx. Elka cracked up at all three stories. Melanie’s doctor returned her wallet to her and asked her out on a date.

He hit three home runs in one game wearing them. Elka, “I Spanxed him.”

Favorite Quotes:

* Joy: Where do I begin? My business is in shambles. I’m about to be deported. My fake fiancé dumped me, so I can’t even keep a phony relationship going. Oh, and yesterday, I lost a tooth. No warning. Just sneezed. My upper-right molar flew out, Landed in my purse.

* Joy: Spanx? I’m confused, not to mention offended.
Vadoma: These not ordinary spanx. Magic spanx. They shape and control the future.
Joy: Right. Magic spanx. Do you validate parking? Because I’d like to get something out of this.

* Melanie: Listen. I know it’s not a great time to be a fan, but come on. You are a grady’s lady. And win or lose, grady sizemore is still one of the best-looking players around, right?
Elka: He did help me learn how to use Google images.

* Elka: So what are you three bats doing flapping around the fireplace?

* Joy: We were about to set these ablaze.
Elka: You’re burning a girdle?
Joy: It’s not a girdle.
Elka: Well, it looks like a girdle.
Victoria: No, it’s spanx. It’s a shaper.
Elka: So it’s a girdle.
Melanie: It’s a compression garment that makes a smooth line under your clothes.
Elka: Oh. Oh, I have a compression garment like that. It’s called a girdle.

* Oliver: I am so sorry. You know, I didn’t remember the baby-sitter having an English accent, but then I thought, “great. She sounds just like Mary poppins.”
Joy: Yes, well, it’s gonna take more than a spoonful of sugar to make this one go down.

* Oliver: Hey, Jacob, come on out and meet your baby-sitter.
Jacob: What happened to pretty Cindy?
Oliver: Oh, sorry, kid.
Joy: Yes, tonight, you’re stuck with “why did I buy a new dress” Joy.

* Melanie Griffith: You know, my own mother is only a few years older than you.
Victoria: You take that back. Nobody knows how old I am. I am an evergreen.
Melanie Griffith: Well, maybe we should just cut you in half and count the rings.

* Victoria: You know, it is just so crazy to think that anyone with eyes could believe that I bore you.
Melanie Griffith: Actually, you do bore me.
Victoria: How dare you? You busty, bleached-blonde bombshell.
Melanie Griffith: Hey, I am a natural blonde. But while we’re on the subject, you might want to rethink those gray hairs that you’re passing off as highlights.

* Robber Lady: Oh, no. I’m way too shy. Which is why I wrote him this note. Maybe you could give it to him for me? I mean, kind of romantic, right?
Melanie: Oh, yeah. Sure. In a third grade sort of way.

* Aaron: You must have dropped it when you were trying to give me your girdle.
Melanie: Spanx.
Aaron: You’re welcome. Anyway, your license had your address

* Victoria: Oh, Elka. Dear, sweet, shar-pei in a sweatshirt Elka.

* Victoria: And I just got a job. The videotape of my tussle with Melanie Griffith made the rounds of a few prominent casting directors and I have been offered a star turn On All My Children opposite Susan Lucci.
Elka: Will you be playing her mother too?
Victoria: No. I am going to chew her up and spit her out and hope there’s a mouthwash strong enough to get the taste of bitch out of my mouth. I’m back!

* Victoria: You know, they say the urge to mother is purely chemical. Your body tells you it’s ready, so you get knocked up and then you spit one out. I mean, that’s how it happened both times for me.
Melanie: Victoria, you have three children.

* Elka: My turn.
Melanie: Wait a minute. I thought you didn’t believe in magic.
Elka: Desperate times call for desperate measures.

* TV Announcer: Bam! Wow! Grady sizemore is having some kind of game. That’s three home runs today. And is it just me or does grady’s uniform look a little smoother than usual? I mean, I cannot see a line.
Elka: That’s right. I spanx’d him.


Transcript:

Joy: Where do I begin? My business is in shambles. I’m about to be deported. My fake fiancé dumped me, so I can’t even keep a phony relationship going. Oh, and yesterday, I lost a tooth. No warning. Just sneezed. My upper-right molar flew out, Landed in my purse. So be honest. Do you think I’m projecting feelings of insecurity because I’m clinically codependent?
Vadoma: I think this works better if you come closer to the crystal ball.
Joy: No offense, but I can’t stare at that ridiculous ball.
Vadoma: No problem. We go off the ball. Now, I give you something to help, but you have to keep open mind. They are spanx.
Joy: Spanx? I’m confused, not to mention offended.
Vadoma: These not ordinary spanx. Magic spanx. They shape and control the future.
Joy: Right. Magic spanx. Do you validate parking? Because I’d like to get something out of this.
(cell phone ringing)
Joy: “cute Oliver.” “cute Oliver”? Oh, my God. Cute Oliver. The guy I met at the market a few months ago.
Vadoma: Spanx is working.
Joy: Hello. Yes, this is Joy. Of course I remember you. Tall, Brown eyes, wobbly wheel on your cart. Oh. Saturday night. Brilliant. I will see you then. Bye.
Vadoma: $300.
Joy: $300 for a pair of spanx?
Vadoma: I’ll save them for the next customer.
Joy: Do psychics take credit cards?
Vadoma: Anything but discover.

Joy: These things have brought us nothing but misery. I say we burn them.
Melanie: Ooh, I don’t know. Do you think it’s legal? You can’t burn leaves anymore.
Victoria: Oh, please. You can burn anything. I once set fire to Ryan O’Neal’s Porsche. Well, he wasn’t in it.
Elka: Cincinnati blows!
Melanie: Oh, Indians lose again?
Elka: Ugh. We got swept by the Reds. Stupid inter league play.
Melanie: Bet all the ladies from the senior center were pretty bummed on the bus ride home, huh?
Elka: There were more balled-up tissues on that floor than in a teenage boy’s bedroom.
Melanie: Elka!
Elka: What? Teenagers cry a lot. ‘Cause they want it so bad and they’re just not getting any.
Melanie: Listen. I know it’s not a great time to be a fan, but come on. You are a Grady’s lady. And win or lose, Grady Sizemore is still one of the best-looking players around, right?
Elka: He did help me learn how to use Google images. So what are you three bats doing flapping around the fireplace?
Joy: We were about to set these ablaze.
Elka: You’re burning a girdle?
Joy: It’s not a girdle.
Elka: Well, it looks like a girdle.
Victoria: No, it’s spanx. It’s a shaper.
Elka: So it’s a girdle.
Melanie: It’s a compression garment that makes a smooth line under your clothes.
Elka: Oh. Oh, I have a compression garment like that. It’s called a girdle. So why do you have to burn the spanx?
Joy: I was so desperate for advice, I went to a psychic, and she swore these would bring me luck, but they didn’t.
Victoria: Well, obviously, the only authentic psychics are in L.A.
Joy: I know it’s silly, but the moment I touched these, this guy I’d been dying to hear from suddenly called. We made a date, I slipped on the magic spanx, and I truly believed things were finally Going to turn around for me.
Elka: I like where this is heading.

Oliver: Joy?
Joy: Oliver. Wow. A tux. And I was worried I was overdressed.
Oliver: No, you look great. Um, please come in.
Joy: I’m so glad this finally happened.
Oliver: Joy, this is awkward. I think on the day we met at the market, I met another lady, a young lady. Not that you’re not young. But I’m looking for a baby-sitter for my three-year-old son, and I think I wrote down her number next to yours. So when I called you –
Joy: You were looking for a baby-sitter.
Oliver: I am so sorry. You know, I didn’t remember the baby-sitter having an English accent, but then I thought, “great. She sounds just like Mary Poppins.”
Joy: Yes, well, it’s gonna take more than a spoonful of sugar to make this one go down.
Oliver: I am so sorry and I I know this is out of line, but would you consider staying anyway? I wouldn’t ask, but I’m in a bind. Tonight’s a really big night for me. I’m proposing to my girlfriend.
Joy: Could this possibly get any worse?
Oliver: Oh, you’re right. You’re right. This isn’t fair. I shouldn’t ask you to stay. I’m just gonna call the restaurant. Probably can’t stop the fireworks, but, uh –
Joy: Oh, all right. I’m here. I might as well stay.
Oliver: Oh, thank you. Thank you. I’m just so nervous about the proposal. I’ve been practicing all day. And, uh, would you mind if I run it by you?
Joy: (laughs hysterically) You’re not joking. Okay, fine.
Oliver: My darling, Angelique.
Joy: “Angelique.”
Oliver: Before I ever laid eyes on you, my life was filled with love, laughter, and song.
Joy; Well, that’s pretty.
Oliver: And then I saw your face and I knew I’d never heard music, never laughed, never truly loved until that moment.
Joy: I like that bit as well.
Oliver: My darling, darling –
Joy: Joy.
Oliver: Angelique will you marry me?
Joy: I will. I do. I shall.
Oliver: Okay! I’m feeling much more confident now. All right, so listen. Jacob’s pull-ups are in the bathroom cabinet. He’s pretty much potty trained now, but he still like to wear one on his head.
Joy: Ha. Who doesn’t?
Oliver: Hey, Jacob, come on out and meet your baby-sitter.
Jacob: What happened to pretty Cindy?
Oliver: Oh, sorry, kid.
Joy: Yes, tonight, you’re stuck with “why did I buy a new dress” Joy.

Elka: Oh, how humiliating. Tell it again. Oh, okay, fine. So what did the spanx do to you?
Victoria: Well, not to belittle your experience, Joy, but your experience is so much smaller than mine was. So it was still a few days before Joy needed the spanx, so I thought, “well, I’m poor and out of work. That’s he perfect time to believe in magic.” Within an hour of putting them on, my agent called me with an audition in New York for a major motion picture.

Victoria: Oh, Amanda. Of course I’ll forgive you. No matter what you do, you’ll always be my little girl.
(knocking on door)
Melanie Griffith: Hello?
Director: Oh, hi. Perfect timing. Melanie, this is Victoria Chase. Victoria, you must know Melanie Griffith.
Victoria: Of course. Melanie, we’ve never met, but I love your work.
Melanie Griffith: I love your work.
Victoria: And I love your shoes.
Melanie Griffith: And I love your shoes.
Director: And I love my shoes. Why don’t I start to tape rolling, so you two can read together?
Melanie Griffith: Okay.
Victoria: Read together?
Melanie Griffith: Yeah, I’m Amanda. I’ll be playing your daughter in the movie.
Victoria: You’re playing my dau You’re playing my daughter? Obviously, there has been some sort of mistake.
Melanie Griffith: What kind of mistake?
Victoria: I mean, Melanie, you’re a beautiful, talented woman, but I am not sure that an audience would buy you as my daughter. I mean, come on. Look at us. We’re virtually the same age. Okay, good. Fine. Wonderful. Let’s just jump right in.
Melanie Griffith: Okay.
Victoria: Oh, Amanda. Of course I’ll forgive you. No matter what you do, you’ll always be my little my little gi- You caught me. You see, I didn’t actually read the script. Um, is this some sort of avatar, cgi thing? Perhaps we’re both green with tails.
Melanie Griffith: No.
Victoria: I see. Then am I getting punked? Should I act surprised?
Melanie Griffith: No.
Victoria: C’est une comedie grotesque?
Melanie Griffith: You mean the French conceit where the roles of the play are cast with the most unsuitable actors possible? No.
Director: Let’s just run the scene and try to have fun with it, okay? Melanie, why don’t you start?
Melanie Griffith: All right. Mother, there’s nothing left for me in gators burg, but if I leave, will you ever be able to forgive me?
Victoria: Oh, Amanda of course I’ll forgive you. Why no matter what you do –
Director: Victoria, just read it normally.
Victoria: Normally? Whatever do you mean?
Melanie Griffith: He means just use your regular voice. You know, my own mother is only a few years older than you.
Victoria: You take that back. Nobody knows how old I am. I am an evergreen.
Melanie Griffith: Well, maybe we should just cut you in half and count the rings.
Victoria: You know, it is just so crazy to think that anyone with eyes could believe that I bore you.
Melanie Griffith: Actually, you do bore me.
Victoria: How dare you? You busty, bleached-blonde bombshell.
Melanie Griffith: Hey, I am a natural blonde. But while we’re on the subject, you might want to rethink those gray hairs that you’re passing off as highlights.
Victoria: I bet the only magazine you ever read is highlights.
Melanie Griffith: Ooh. Nice comeback Mommy.
Victoria: Don’t you walk away from me.
(Victoria grabs Melanie Griffiths hair and Melanie Griffiths flips her)
Melanie Griffith: Ah-ya! You forget that I did all my own stunts in Crazy in Alabama.
Victoria: And you forget a little Lifetime Original movie called Soccer Mom Ninja. Ye-ah!!

Victoria: So clearly, I have been cursed by these stupid spanx. Now all over show business, Victoria chase Is known as a “difficult actress.”
Elka: To watch?
Victoria: Oh, Elka. Dear, sweet, shar-pei in a sweatshirt Elka.
Elka: So what do you blame the girdle for?
Melanie: Oh, well, in my case, I just wanted to look better in the dress I was wearing. See, I’ve had my eye on this cute guy for a few weeks and he goes into Stormi’s every saturday, so I thought I would take the spanx out for a stroll.

Robber Lady: Hi. Is this seat taken?
Melanie: Uh, no. Although I keep putting my coat on it and taking my coat back off and putting it back on again. I’m sort of saving it for this cute guy over there who doesn’t even know I exist. And why am I still talking? You just want to sit. I’m sorry. Sit, please.
Robber Lady: Thanks. You know, I’m kind of here for the same reason. There’s this really cute guy I’ve been watching.
Melanie: Oh, no. Does he look like rob lowe, Only blonder and, ironically, smarter? Is he playing darts over there? Please tell me he’s not playing darts.
Robber Lady: No, it’s the bartender.
Melanie: Ben! Oh, we always thought he was gay. But you just go for it. Would you like me to introduce you, Because we’re sort of friends.
Robber Lady: Oh, no. I’m way too shy. Which is why I wrote him this note. Maybe you could give it to him for me? I mean, kind of romantic, right?
Melanie: Oh, yeah. Sure. In a third grade sort of way. Ben, if I had a note from somebody who liked you, would you be hoping it was from a girl or a guy?
Ben: That depends on what it says.
Melanie: Here. What? What are you doing? Ben? “empty the cash register. I have a gun”? That’s not very romantic. Oh! Ooh.
Robber lady: Thanks. And good luck with your guy.
Melanie: Oh, thank –
Aaron: Let me through! I’m a doctor!
Melanie: A doctor? I mean, help her! Somebody call an ambulance! Stat!
Aaron: Thanks. I need more than these napkins to make a tourniquet. I need something with compression. Does anybody here have anything that’s strong and stretchy? It’s a matter of life or death!
Melanie: I have something that can help. But you have to turn away. I said turn away.

Melanie: You know, these spanx really look great while you’re wearing ’em, but they are not pretty to take off. I mean, as soon as you roll down the waistband, this creates this totally unnatural spillage, right? It’s like your stomach is a volcano and layers of molten lava and it’s just, like, lapping over the top.
Elka: Okay, I’ve heard enough. Stop blaming an innocent girdle. You’re desperate. You’re vain. And you’re gullible.
Victoria:: I say we burn her too. Oh, right after I speak to my Agent. Here.
(doorbell rings)
Melanie: Oh, I’ll get it. Oh, hi. It’s you. Dr. “I’m a doctor.” Yeah, I’m sorry. Actually, I don’t know your name.
Aaron: I’m Aaron.
Melanie: I’m –
Aaron: Melanie Hope Moretti. I have your wallet.
Melanie: Oh.
Aaron: You must have dropped it when you were trying to give me your girdle.
Melanie: Spanx.
Aaron: You’re welcome. Anyway, your license had your address –
Melanie: Oh! You saw my license? I mean, yeah, sure, the address is correct, But, you know, the weight and the age, it’s totally typos. And that picture.
Aaron: That picture’s adorable.
Melanie: Oh, stop it. You’re just saying that. Say it again.
Aaron: Okay, how about over dinner this week?
Melanie: Well, that would be perfect, because I’m gonna be hungry this week.
Aaron: I’ll call you tomorrow.
Melanie: I’ll answer tomorrow. And I’ll stop doing that. Don’t burn the spanx. I just got a date with the dreamy doctor.
Victoria: And I just got a job. The videotape of my tussle with Melanie Griffith made the rounds of a few prominent casting directors and I have been offered a star turn On All My Children opposite Susan Lucci.
Elka: Will you be playing her mother too?
Victoria: No. I am going to chew her up and spit her out and hope there’s a mouthwash strong enough to get the taste of bitch out of my mouth. I’m back!
Joy: Congrats. Let’s celebrate this with a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire of spanx.
Melanie: No! I need those for my date.
Joy: I’ll buy you a new pair with my baby-sitting money. Where are my matches? Aww. Jacob.
Melanie: What is it?
Joy: The little boy I baby-sat for drew this picture of me.
Melanie: Oh, it’s a smiley face.
Elka: He got the stick figure part right.
Victoria: That’s not very good.
Joy: He’s just three.
Melanie: So how come you’re smiling in that picture if you had such a terrible time?
Joy: It wasn’t terrible. To be honest, Jacob and I had a wonderful evening together.

Joy: “sweet dreams, Mr. Moon. “sweet dreams, Mr. Star. “sweet dreams, Mr. Comet, wherever you are. “sweet dreams, little truck. Sweet dreams, little duck.” Good God, this book is tedious. Don’t you think, Jacob? And perhaps that’s the point.

Joy: This is silly. I took care of a little boy. It was fine. Now it’s over.
Melanie: Are you sure?
Joy: No. I’m not.
Victoria: You know, they say the urge to mother is purely chemical. Your body tells you it’s ready, so you get knocked up and then you spit one out. I mean, that’s how it happened both times for me.
Melanie: Victoria, you have three children.
Joy: Look, I know I have a grown son out there somewhere, but I didn’t raise him. And before it’s too late, I’d like to raise a child of my own. I think I might be good at it.
Elka: I bet you would be good at it.
Joy: And?
Elka: No “and.” Just take the compliment.
Melanie: Elka’s right. You would make a great mom. You’re responsible. You’re fun. You’re caring.
Elka: So how long we gonna yank her chain? You’re too old.
Joy: Well, it’s not impossible. The Scroggs women are famous for having babies later in life and there’s always adoption.
Victoria: Yeah, you gave one away. You deserve one back. You know, it’s like the give-a-penny, take-a-penny tray at the gas station.
Joy: I know the timing couldn’t be worse for me to come to this epiphany, but the thought of it makes me happy. Maybe these turned out to be lucky for me too.
Elka: My turn.
Melanie: Wait a minute. I thought you didn’t believe in magic.
Elka: Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Joy: It says here that it takes an average of 22 months for a woman over 40 to get pregnant.
Elka: Is that counting the 18 months it’ll take you to find somebody willing to go there? Oh, look. Here we go. Grady’s up to bat.
TV Announcer: Bam! Wow! Grady Sizemore is having some kind of game. That’s three home runs today. And is it just me or does Grady’s uniform look a little smoother than usual? I mean, I cannot see a line.
Elka: That’s right. I spanx’d him.
