109. Blanche and the Younger Man

Aired November 16, 1985

Blanche starts a relationship with her young jazzercise instructor. Meanwhile, Rose's mother comes to town and feels smothered by her daughter's overprotective attitude towards her.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Ma, where are you going with all that food?
Sophia: I'm stashing it away from Rose's mother. She's on a special diet. I hate those people. You turn your back for a second, boom boom, your food is gone. Anything on your plate is suddenly on their diet.
Dorothy: Oh, come on, Ma. You haven't even met Rose's mother.
Sophia: I know a lot of old people. They're all the same. They're cranky, they're demanding, they repeat themselves. They're cranky, they're demanding...

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: I am talking about what's happening between Dirk and me. It's something really special, something fragile and rare. I've only felt this once before. It was during my 17th summer and I was working behind the cosmetics counter at the Rexall drugstore. I was stocking the Maybelline display when I heard this booming voice say, "Excuse me, ma'am. Where are the cuticle scissors?" I turned around and there he was. Our eyes locked, and for one brief moment, there was nobody else on earth but the two of us.
Dorothy: Please, Blanche. Sidney Sheldon tells shorter stories!
Blanche: I know in my heart, if I'd just followed my feelings that day at the Rexall drugstore, today I would be Mrs. Andy Griffith! I tell you what, I'm not gonna make the same mistake with Dirk that I made with Andy.
Dorothy: Didn't she tell us that story before?
Sophia: Yes, but the last time it was Woolworth's, a toenail clipper, and John Cameron Swayze.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: You know, I think I can handle this relationship with Dirk. I'm going out with him Saturday night.
Dorothy: Was there ever any doubt?
Blanche: Momentarily. This is strictly off the record, but Dirk's nearly five years younger than I am.
Dorothy: In what, Blanche, dog years?

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: I'm just a little depressed. For the first time in my life, I feel over 40.
Dorothy: You know why that is, honey?
Blanche: Why?
Dorothy: Because you're over 50.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: What are you doing home?
Rose: I came home early to be with Mother.
Dorothy: No, my mother took her to the track.
Rose: You let her out of the house?
Dorothy: No, she dug a tunnel out of her bedroom with a dessert spoon.

Quote from Rose

Rose: Mother, am I really making you miserable?
Mrs. Lindstrom: Yes, you are. I know you don't mean to, but you are.
Rose: Oh, I'm sorry. I- Won't you stay and give me another chance?
Mrs. Lindstrom: I don't know, Rosie.
Rose: I know I drive you crazy, but it's just because I love you so much. You know, after Daddy died, I just thought I'd never get over it. And Charlie, well, there's not a day goes by that I don't think about him. And now that you're getting older, I'm afraid I'm gonna lose you, too. That's why I fuss over you so much.
Mrs. Lindstrom: I understand, Rosie, but stopping me from living isn't going to stop me from dying.
Rose: Oh, I can't stand to think about it!
Mrs. Lindstrom: Well, then, don't. Let's just enjoy what we have.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: Ma, what makes you think she's old? She's the same age as you.
Sophia: So how come she ordered her a wheelchair at the airport, a special meal on the plane, and put an oxygen tank in the garage?
Dorothy: Maybe she's a disabled welder on a special diet.

Quote from Sophia

Rose: Well, maybe tomorrow. Why don't you take a little nap while I fix you something to eat.
Mrs. Lindstrom: Rosie! I'm not a child. I don't need a nap!
Rose: Oh, there's nothing wrong with taking a nap. Bob Hope takes naps.
Sophia: Unless he's in the bedroom now, taking one, I think she'd rather stay here with us.

Quote from Blanche

Dorothy: The only time I get in that position is when I give birth.
Blanche: Oh! Aah, my back!
Dorothy: Are you all right?
Blanche: No, but it's worth it. No pain, no gain. Gotta look good for Dirk. A man his age is used to a trim body with good tone.
Dorothy: Then buy him a Princess phone. What are you doing now?
Blanche: I'm taking my bee pollen and my sheep's liver extract, and my fish oil protein. I'm getting younger with each passing day!
Dorothy: Great. Great. When they defrost Walt Disney, he'll have someone to go out with.

Quote from Dorothy

Rose: Oh, my Lord! She's out on the street and it's almost dark!
Dorothy: Honey, she's fine. She's with my mother.
Rose: Oh, Sophia's different, Dorothy. She's- She's- She's your mother. My mother's led a very quiet life. All this is gonna be too much for her.
Dorothy: Come on, honey. She's out betting on the horses, not rounding them up.
