Ruthie Camden: It's old news, really. Very old news. I mean, it probably doesn't even matter anymore. Remember when Matt took Sarah on their first date, and they stayed out all night, and came home with that lame cover story about how they stayed up all night talking and decided to get married?

Ruthie Camden: Please don't let them put Mary in jail again.
Simon Camden: You say to let Mary handle it, but she's not. We're the ones getting the calls, and sooner or later Mom and Dad are gonna find out. And deadbeat or not, she's still our sister.
05x05 - Blind Season 5 / Episode 5: - Blind

Simon Camden: [about his earring] But if I take it out, the hole will close up!
Reverend Eric Camden: Exactly!
Simon Camden: That's not fair. Why can't I keep the earring?
Ruthie Camden: Because you look like a girl!
Annie Jackson-Camden: You went out of the house tonight without our permission. You went to the house of someone we don't know and have never met. At that house you allowed that someone we don't know to pierce your ear.
Reverend Eric Camden: Be grateful that the only thing we're doing is making you take out your earring out.
Simon Camden: Fine!
05x03 - Losers Season 5 / Episode 3: - Losers

Annie Camden: [to Ruthie after she saw Annie and Eric having sex] Ruthie, it really isn't funny.
Ruthie Camden: Oh, it's plenty funny! I always thought it was so serious, because you always have this serious face when you talk about sex, but trust me, it was funny!
Annie Camden: It's also very... private, and very intimate, and even though it's perfectly natural for a man and a woman - a married man and a married: woman - to... make love, it's not something that's meant for anyone else to watch.
Ruthie Camden: I didn't mean to, and believe me, I'm going to do everything I can to make sure I never see anything like that again!

Rev. Eric Camden: [to Ruthie] Actually, your principal called this morning, and you're not in any trouble. He thinks he may have found a way to get you out of Miss Riddle's class.
Ruthie Camden: Thank God!
Rev. Eric Camden: What did you say?
Ruthie Camden: Thank God. You should thank God. I talked to God and told him how unhappy I was at school, and asked Him to help.
Rev. Eric Camden: You prayed to get out of Miss Riddle's class?
Ruthie Camden: If you don't ask, you don't get. I just thought you and Mom could use some help.
05x02 - Help Season 5 / Episode 2: - Help

Ruthie Camden: [to her parents as they are visiting Eleanor Roosevelt School] They have horses! Horses!
Mrs. Carmen Mackoul: [to Eric and Annie] The school offers both English and western style instruction.2
Ruthie Camden: And there's no homework!
Mrs. Carmen Mackoul: We feel the children work hard during the day. At night, they should be free to relax and be kids. After all, we do have them seven hours a day. Of course, if Ruthie would like to spend time at home studying any subject beyond the core curriculum, we'll set up an individual program for her.
Ruthie Camden: I may want to do that, considering I don't have to be at school until ten!
Mrs. Carmen Mackoul: [laughs] We have a flexible schedule. Students can start as late as ten, but then they go until five. Not every student does his or her best work early in the morning. Plus, we have a 14 to 1 student ratio and a whole list of after-school trips and projects. Last year, we took a group of students to the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. and met the President. I think that Ruthie would make a wonderful addition to our school. If you have any questions, please call.
Rev. Eric Camden, Annie Camden: Thank you. [shakes her hand]
Mrs. Carmen Mackoul: Bye, Ruthie. [leaves]
Ruthie Camden: Boy, when God answers a prayer, he answers a prayer!
Rev. Eric Camden: Does that mean you want to go to school here?
Annie Camden: Oh, yeah!
05x02 - Help Season 5 / Episode 2: - Help

Ruthie Camden: [to Eric] So did you get me transferred out of Miss Riddle's class?
Rev. Eric Camden: Yeah. I think I did.
Ruthie Camden: You and God make a great team!
05x02 - Help Season 5 / Episode 2: - Help

Lucy Camden: [to Ruthie] If you got into that school, you should be honored. You should go.
Ruthie Camden: No, I will not go! You cannot make me! I'm just going to run away.
Lucy Camden: If you run away, you'll still have to make all new friends.
Ruthie Camden: No, I won't. My friend Sarah will come with me and we'll join the circus, and when we're old enough we'll marry clowns!
Lucy Camden: You have put way too much thought into this whole thing.
Ruthie Camden: Why has God forsaken me? Why?
05x01 - Here We Go Again Season 5 / Episode 1: - Here We Go Again

Ruthie Camden: So, what kind of fun stuff do we have planned for tomorrow?
Annie Camden: [to Eric] Teacher Work Day. No school for Ruthie.
Ruthie Camden: Yes!
Annie Camden: Okay, let's see. Tomorrow, you can help me clean the bathrooms, do the laundry, repair the kitchen sink, iron the socks, reorganize the linen closet, and go shopping.
Ruthie Camden: Toy shopping?
Annie Camden: Food shopping.
Ruthie Camden: Man, this is gonna be worse than school!
04x05 - With Honors Season 4 / Episode 5: - With Honors

Ruthie Camden: Mom, can I have $29.99? I just have to have these walkie talkies I saw on TV! Then I can call all my friends, and they can call me back, and it only costs $29.99!
Annie Camden: But if you use the phone to call your friends and pretend the phone is a walkie-talkie, it'll cost less.
Ruthie Camden: [rolls eyes] Parents!
04x05 - With Honors Season 4 / Episode 5: - With Honors

Rev. Eric Camden: [to Ruthie] So have you reconsidered my offer? 'cause if you really those walky talkies getting an allowance is the only way to go.
Ruthie Camden: No, thank you. I don't need an allowance. I have a plan. And it's a lot easier than taking out the trash for the rest of my life.
Annie Camden: She has a plan, should we be concerned?
Rev. Eric Camden: Not concerned, afraid. Very afraid.
03x08 - No Sex, Some Drugs and a Little Rock 'n' Roll Season 3 / Episode 8: - No Sex, Some Drugs and a Little Rock 'n' Roll

Ruthie Camden: If that were really true, I'd bring you in to Show 'N' Tell.
03x07 - Johnny Get Your Gun Season 3 / Episode 7: - Johnny Get Your Gun

Lucy Camden Kinkirk: [after Eric is shot] I just wish somebody would have told me what was going on.
Simon Camden: Mom and Dad were hoping they wouldn't have to scare the rest of the family. Besides, what would you have done anyway?
Ruthie Camden: Well, for one thing, I wouldn't have been running around yelling "Ba-Boom!"
03x07 - Johnny Get Your Gun Season 3 / Episode 7: - Johnny Get Your Gun

Annie Jackson-Camden: [in response to Ruthie playing a game where people step on land mines] Ruthie, did you know that there are real people who step on real land mines? They lose arms and legs... and some even die.
Ruthie Camden: Yeah, but this isn't real life. It's just a game. A video game.
03x07 - Johnny Get Your Gun Season 3 / Episode 7: - Johnny Get Your Gun

Reverend Eric Camden: [to Ruthie] Let me try to explain to you why your mom and I are so upset by this whole "Ba-Boom!" thing.
Ruthie Camden: After that, then can I get the video game?
Reverend Eric Camden: Listen... when you first see someone shot or blown up on TV, it has to be at least a little scary. But then if you keep watching it day after day, week after week, year after year, it starts to grow less scary, less a big deal, and even gets to seem like... nothing. But it is something. It's the biggest something. It's someone taking someone else's life.

Ruthie Camden: Yeah, we're fat and we're sick.
Annie Camden: And tired you know I'm really, really tired. It's not like having a baby at twenty or thirty, I'm...
Ruthie Camden: Old.
Annie Camden: And I've got six months to go. Six more months. Six months of tryinig to wear clothes that make me look...
Rev. Eric Camden: Like you're having a baby. Our baby.
Ruthie Camden: Yeah, our big fat baby.
Annie Camden: Yeah, she's right. You know that I was seven months pregnant with Matt before I was in maternity clothes. And now, at three months look at me, I'm fat. I'm old. I'm tired. And I'm fat.
Ruthie Camden: Yeah, I can't get in nothing of mine, neither.

Ruthie Camden: Yeah. If you ask me, the only thing you daddies have to do to make a baby is the fun part.
