A mother gives you a life, a mother-in-law gives you her life.
Just got back from a pleasure trip: I took my mother-in-law to the airport.
I cook mostly vegetarian vegetable and bean stews. Quinoa salads. I make my mother-in-law's recipe for chicken and barley stew all the time.
Be kind to your mother-in-law, but pay for her board at some good hotel.
My mother-in-law had a pain beneath her left breast. Turned out to be a trick knee.
I took my mother-in-law to Madame Tussaud's Chamber of Horrors, and one of the attendants said: 'Keep her moving sir; we're stock-taking.'
A mother-in-law is better than a single and childless political persona, though.
I went from resenting my mother-in-law to accepting her, finally to appreciating her. What appeared to be her diffidence when I was first married, I now value as serenity.
But there, everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.
Someday I will get married, and I should be able to watch my films with my children, mother-in-law, and father-in-law.
Conscience is a mother-in-law whose visit never ends.
Behind every successful man stands a surprised mother-in-law.
Behind every successful man is a proud wife and a surprised mother-in-law.
I saw six men kicking and punching the mother-in-law. My neighbour said 'Are you going to help?' I said 'No, six should be enough.'
My mother-in-law has so many wrinkles, when she smiles she looks like a Venetian blind.
The mother-in-law had an accident at work. A hot rivet dropped down her drawers and she fell off the oil rig.
My mother-in-law's from Norway, and she's always liked old-school remedies.
When I hit the scene, there was Billy Connolly and Max Boyce. It was all mother-in-law and Irish jokes, and we broke the mould. Now there are thousands of comedians out there, and I don't think I can be above it all.
Personally, I wear a lot of my mother-in-law's chiffons and my mother's silk. But when I buy saris for myself, then they have to be understated.
