Quote of the Day

Quote from Rose in Brotherly Love

Rose: Four nights in a row and I still can't sleep.
Sophia: Please, I haven't had a decent nights sleep since I was 70.
Rose: You're right, I shouldn't complain. I mean, four nights is nothing compared to Elsa Yuderruden back in St.
Olaf. She stayed awake for 17 straight days in a rocking chair marathon. Of course, she couldn't have done it without moral support of her children and her husband. And his cattle prod.

Quote from Sophia in The Engagement

Rose: I don't drink before bedtime. I stop all liquids at noon and I still wake up.

Quote from Blanche in Take Him, He's Mine

Dorothy: And I was feeling jealous and Ionely and... God knows what else.
Blanche: Magenta.
Dorothy: Excuse me?
Blanche: Magenta. That's what I call it when I get that way. All kinds of feelings tumbling all over themselves. Well, you know, you're not quite blue because you're not really sad and although you're a little jealous, you wouldn't say you're green with envy, and every now and then you realize you're kinda scared but you'd hardly call yourself yellow. I hate that feeling. I just hate it. And I hate the color magenta. That's why I named it that. Magenta. No way to really explain it but, fortunately, between friends, you don't have to.
