Frank, feisty, constantly doting on her kids — and constantly embarrassing them too: that’s Jenny Law (Fiona Choi) in a nutshell. We all fell in love with Jenny on The Family Law, watching her face the daily chaos of raising five kids, while dispensing wisdom in the most inappropriate of ways.

Filled with malapropisms and often revealing too much, here’s ten of her most memorable pearlers.

On childbirth

“Can you imagine squeezing a lemon out of your penis hole?”

“The poor turkey, so spread open. If anyone knows what it feels like…”


On sex

“Asian vaginas are smaller. Fun for them, pain for you!”



On raising teenage boys

“Tell your brother no more dirty sperm sheets — it’s like poaching eggs in the washing machine.”


On her love for her family

“I’m the mummy wallaby, and you can all be my baby wallabies because you come from my big, furry…. pouch.”


“They’re not mistakes — well, except for Michelle. I should’ve had my tubes tied earlier.”


On watching her kids grow up

“He treats me like I pooed my pants in front of his friends. What will happen when I’m 90 and I actually poo my pants?”


On technology

“Why put it on the internet for every hairy dick and fanny to see?”


On finding inspiration

“I just closed my eyes and let them all come on me.”


On new beginnings

“It’s time to spread my flaps.”


All three seasons of The Family Law are streaming now via SBS On Demand (also available with Simplified Chinese subtitles):
