Sister Margaretta (about Maria): "After all, the wool from the black sheep is just as warm."
Maria: "Gretl, what happened to your finger?" Gretl: "It got caught." Maria: "Caught in what?" Gretl: "Friedrich's teeth."
Louisa: "I'm Brigitta." Maria: "You didn't tell me how old you are... Louisa." Brigitta: "I'M Brigitta, she's Louisa. She's thirteen years old, and you're smart! I'm ten, and I think your dress is the ugliest one I ever saw!" Kurt: "Brigitta, you shouldn't say that!" Brigitta: "Why not? Don't you think it's ugly?" Kurt: "Of course, but Fraulein Helga's was ugliest."
