Bob Quimby: Ramona, your sister has a report card. Doesn't that mean you should have one too?
Ramona Quimby: Uh... No.
Beezus: Who could ever love someone named Beezus?
Ramona Quimby: Jesus?
Ramona Quimby: [Watching a commercial, reciting the slogan] "Royal Peanut Butter: There's a bit of magic in every jar"!
Bob Quimby: Is that one of your favorites? That's the rack we gotta get you into, 'cause those TV kids make millions.
Ramona Quimby: Beezus, do you think I could be in a commercial like that?
Beezus: [Fixing Ramona's hair with a curling iron] Sure, you'd make a great frog.
Ramona Quimby: Hey!
Beezus: Hold still. I'm almost done.
Ramona Quimby: It's picture-perfect, right?
Beezus: Let's be realistic, Ramona. This is a curling iron, not a magic wand.

Dorothy Quimby: Well, there is that dance coming up. Maybe he wants to ask you to it.
Bob Quimby: Well, if he's gonna ask my daughter to dance, he better have some moves. Can the old dirt-eater do this?
[Mr. Quimby starts dancing very badly. Ramona and Mrs. Quimby laugh]
Beezus: [Embarrassed. Playfully throws a towel at Mr. Quimby] Oh, I hope not! Stop! Mom!

SummaryAdd a Summary
"Beatrice Quimby's biggest problem was her little sister Ramona." Beatrice, called Beezus for short, is a serious, responsible girl who wants to be good big sister. But sometimes it's just too hard. Four-year-old Ramona can be very exasperating. Sometimes she does silly things that embarrass Beezus, like walking to the library wearing Easter bunny ears and hopping like a rabbit—in September. Or getting their friend Henry Huggins' dog locked inside their bathroom when he comes over to play chequers with Beezus.
