Crossing Delancey (1988) Poster

Reizl Bozyk: Bubbie Kantor



  • Bubbie Kantor : [Izzy is cutting string from a package with a chef's knife]  Bubbie: Gimme that, gimme that. You don't know how to open up a package. It's, it's good string you're wasting. Such, such nice, heavy paper. Something to save, Miss Fancy.

  • Isabelle 'Izzy' Grossman : [after opening Sam's package that includes pickles and a new hat]  Bubbie, I'm being wooed.

    Bubbie Kantor : [in Yiddish]  Vood? Vas is vood?

  • Isabelle 'Izzy' Grossman : [Objecting to a surprise appointment with a matchmaker]  Excuse me, but I don't know what you think you're doing.

    Bubbie Kantor : First you'll listen, then you'll talk.

    Hannah Mandelbaum : Very nice, very nice girl. She lives by her parents?

    Bubbie Kantor : Naaaah, they live in Florida with Red Buttons. All the social security checks under one roof - you can have it.

    Hannah Mandelbaum : So, Isabella, you got your own apartment?

    Bubbie Kantor : Naaaaah, she lives alone in a room, like a dog. A dog should live alone, not people... a dog.

    Isabelle 'Izzy' Grossman : It is not a room, it's an apartment, a very nice apartment. You know, you've been there, there's a bedroom, a bathroom...

    Bubbie Kantor : Sure, with bars on the windows like a prison. Someone should crawl in at night I'm always thinking.

    Isabelle 'Izzy' Grossman : Stop thinking.

  • [last lines] 

    Bubbie Kantor : Take my arm, Sam. It's OK, you can touch me. A hundred and twenty pounds of pure gold, that's me. Come children, come, let's put the bubbie to bed.

  • Isabelle 'Izzy' Grossman : [ending a tirade about her Bubbie's constant efforts to fix her up with a man]  It's not as if I'm discounting the possibility, but Bubbie, listen to me. I am not, repeat NOT holding my breath!

    Bubbie Kantor : A professor once told me, a college professor "No matter how happy you are, if you're alone, you're sick!"

    Isabelle 'Izzy' Grossman : [groaning in exasperation]  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
