120. Adult Education

Aired February 22, 1986

Blanche is the victim of sexual harassment when her psychology professor asks for sex in return for improving her grades.

Quote from Sophia

Rose: What are you doing?
Sophia: It's Tuesday night. I'm cleaning out my purse.
Rose: Did all that stuff come out of your purse?
Sophia: No, I was also cleaning out my ears. That's where the Feenamint and the rain bonnet came from.
Rose: Sophia, why are you in such a bad mood?
Sophia: Forgive me, Rose, but I haven't had sex in 15 years and it's starting to get on my nerves.

Quote from Rose

Rose: Nils Felander attempted to harass me repeatedly.
Blanche: What do you mean, he attempted to?
Rose: He worked at Lars Erikson's Drugstore and Tackle Shop. He was a soda jerk. Now that I think about it, he was the town jerk. Every Saturday afternoon, I'd go in and have a sundae. Well, Nils would arrange the ice cream scoops in an obscene way. I could never prove it, because by the time I would take it home to show my father... the evidence had-
Rose, Dorothy & Blanche: [in unison] melted.
Rose: To this day, every time I pass an ice cream parlor or a tackle shop, I blush.

Quote from Sophia

Rose: Here we are, Sophia. The perfect after-dinner treat. A nice dish of Jell-O.
Sophia: I hate Jell-O. If God wanted peaches suspended in midair, he would have filled them with helium.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Let's go, Dorothy, I don't want to miss my appointment at the beauty parlor.
Rose: In a minute, Sophia. Dorothy's been trying to get through to the box office for 20 minutes.
Sophia: I can't be late. The last time I was late, Ronald gave me the broken hair dryer. I came out looking like Don King.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: Ma, please. All my life I've wanted to see Frank Sinatra in concert. I'm not getting off this phone until I get tickets.
Sophia: What are you talking about? I took you and Gloria to see him at the Paramount Theatre. I'll never forget it. From the second he stepped out on the stage, I don't know, something happened.
Dorothy: You fainted. That's what happened. I spent the rest of the evening in the ladies' room, trying to revive you. Wasn't until a couple of years later that I got another chance to see Sinatra. Stan bought tickets for my birthday. But two weeks before the concert, he asked me for a divorce. I got the house and the kids. He got the tickets. Don't think I didn't put up a fight!

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Honey, calm down. You're gonna pass the course. You're gonna have to buckle down and study a little harder.
Rose: At least you're doing well in your other two courses.
Blanche: But those are art courses. They come easier to me. I've always had a great appreciation for the arts and artists.
Sophia: And carpenters and mechanics and delivery boys.

Quote from Rose

Rose: I just remembered, I know somebody in show business who can help us. My best friend in St. Olaf has a nephew who's a page at NBC in Hollywood. I'll write to her and ask her to write to him.
Blanche: Honey, won't that take an awful long time?
Rose: Oh, I don't mind. I'm a very patient person. I once waited two whole weeks for a sty to go away. Every night, I'd close my eyes and I'd picture it getting smaller and smaller. And one morning, I woke up and it was gone.
Dorothy: Ma, you OK?
Sophia: I'm fine. I'm just trying to make Rose go away.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: I know exactly how she feels. I used to be scared of my teachers, too.
Blanche: Get out of here.
Dorothy: No, it's true, it's true. Elementary school was a nightmare. I was afraid to talk in class.
Rose: Why?
Dorothy: Well, I had a slight speech impediment. Well, it's different for kids these days, you know. They have Barbara Walters to look up to. Yeah, but in those days, it really stood out, you know.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: So, big shot, did you get the tickets?
Dorothy: Can't you say hello first?
Sophia: Hello, big shot. Did you get the tickets?
Dorothy: Look, Ma, don't start with me. I've had a very rough day. The only scalper I could find had funny things moving in his hair, and he wanted to bargain in a dark alley.
Sophia: So what seats did you get?
Dorothy: I didn't get any tickets. I didn't think it was exactly safe.
Sophia: I can't believe you were such a baby. In Sicily, we did all our bargaining in dark alleys. How do you think I ended up with your father?

Quote from Rose

Rose: Look, if the tickets are that hard to get, maybe we just weren't meant to go.
Dorothy: Maybe you weren't, Rose, but two weeks from now, I intend to be sitting in front of Old Blue Eyes himself, live, in-person, middle-aged spread and all.
Rose: Dorothy, you can take off a few pounds by then if you put your mind to it.
