Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Dear God, I know it's been an awful long time since I've done this, and I'm sorry. You have given me a lot to be thankful for. My wonderful children, my health, a beautiful body, legs to die for. A face that is stunningly sexy and yet has the innocence of a child, with luscious lips that just invite-
Dorothy: He knows what you look like, Blanche.
Blanche: Yes, you know what I look like and I just wanted to say good job. Oh, but, dear God, I do have a favor to ask. Could you please spare my friend Rose? Now, I know I haven't been perfect, but if you can just let her live, I promise I'll try to be a better person. And if, in your infinite wisdom, you decide to start the aging process on me, I will understand. [Dorothy covers Sophia's mouth] And I promise I will not have sex with anyone unless they really, really need it. Amen.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Well, I thought maybe the three of us could go to church together just like good people.
Janet: Oh, you know how I feel about organized religion. It makes me crazy. And I do not want Sarah's head filled with stories about a God who may or may not exist.
Blanche: Well, honey, of course He exists. Just look at the beautiful sky, the majestic trees. God created man and gave him a heart and a mind and thighs that could crack walnuts.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Look at this. Vaseline. BENGAY. Ooh, wow, look at this wonderful thermometer! Ouch! Stop me, I'm like a kid in a candy store.
Dorothy: Ma, don't take that stuff.
Sophia: Come on, pussycat. They expect us to take it. It's like hotel soap.

Quote from Rose

Rose: I am so mad. I just got a letter from back home all about my high school reunion. I didn't know I was gonna miss such a good time. Listen to this, "Dear Rose, you sure did miss a good time. The precision drill team wasn't the same without you. We could only spell out St. Oaf."

Quote from Rose

Dorothy: You know, Rose, you didn't get to go to your high school reunion because you weren't feeling well. Maybe if you'd been to see a doctor, you could've gone.
Rose: You don't understand. I'm from St. Olaf. St. Olaf is farm country. We're rough and rugged. We never see doctors. Never. In fact, my great-grandfather once removed his neighbor's appendix and he wasn't even sick.
Dorothy: Why would he do that?
Rose: Let's just say they were playing poker and the stakes got a little high.

Quote from Rose

Blanche: You're gonna come with us, but you have to be prepared. Now, I'm gonna go by the school library and pick up some old yearbooks. We have to know all the basics. You know, like, oh, senior class president, quarterback of the football team, class slut.
Dorothy: Blanche, how do you tell a slut from a yearbook?
Rose: Oh. How do you tell a slut from a yearbook? Um... You don't have to buy a yearbook dinner.
Blanche: Rose.
Rose: You can take a yearbook home to your parents.
Blanche: Rose.
Rose: There's nothing wrong with having a yearbook on the coffee table.
Dorothy: Rose, this isn't a riddle!
Rose: Well, make it one. I had three good answers.

Quote from Rose

Rose: I think this whole thing is wrong. I mean, we're going to this reunion and deceiving people and changing our past histories. To me, that's almost like lying. And that's against everything I am.
Dorothy: Rose, what's the natural color of your hair?
Rose: I'll get the car.

Quote from Sophia

Blanche: Where have you been?
Rose: When no one was looking, I went by the "no show" table and I got four nametags for us. Blanche, you'll be Susan Armstrong. And, Dorothy, you'll be Cindy Lou Peeples. And, Sophia, you're Myron Zucker.
Sophia: Rose, you idiot. There's no way I'm ever gonna pass for a man. Dorothy, trade with me?
Dorothy: Go to hell, Myron.

Quote from Rose

Dorothy: Rose, I don't want to wear this.
Rose: Oh, come on. I looked in the yearbook and you're a dead ringer for Cindy Lou Peeples.
Dorothy: I don't know.
Rose: Trust me. It'll work or my name isn't Kim Fung-Toi.

Quote from Rose

Guy: Cindy Lou Peeples? You look incredible.
Dorothy: Well, thank you. You remember our Korean exchange student, Kim Fung-Toi?
Guy: Oh, sure. You look different.
Rose: Different on outside. Same on inside.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: Oh, my God, Dorothy, I just had another horrible thought.What if Rose h ad a major stroke? What if she is left completely unable to care for herself? What would we do?
Dorothy: We would bring her home. That's what we would do. If she had a stroke, we'd take care of her. She's family.
Sophia: [clears throat]
Dorothy: Right. And then we'd send her to Shady Pines.
Sophia: Thank you.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: All I know is Rose is gonna be okay. And I am gonna stick by my promise. Boy, from now on, you're gonna see a new, improved Blanche.
Doctor: I've just talked to the nurse. Mrs. Nylund is in her room and she wants to see you.
Blanche: Oh, thank you, Doctor.
Doctor: Room 114. By the way, I don't think I caught your name.
Blanche: I'm Blanche.
Doctor: Well, Blanche, I hope I can see you outside the hospital. Maybe we can have dinner some night?
Blanche: Oh, well, do you... Do you really need to? I mean, do you really, really need to?
Doctor: Well, I don't really need to.
Blanche: Then I'm sorry, but I can't. [to the heavens] Oh, you are a vengeful God.

Quote from Dorothy

Rose: You know, I've never been afraid of dying. That's 'cause I'm not gonna stay dead. I'm gonna get frozen. I read a magazine article on cryogenics. I mean, they freeze you, and then when they find a cure for what you've got, they bring you back to life.
Dorothy: Oh, Rose, there is no proof of that working.
Rose: Oh, they've had great success with the Arctic beetle.
Blanche: You have nothin' in common with the Arctic beetle.
Dorothy: Think that one through.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Oh, I'm sorry. I came to religion late.
Janet: I'd say.
Blanche: But it's never too late. And it is my fervent hope that the three of us, you and I and dear little Sarah, may walk the path of righteousness together. And now, if you will excuse me, I have Gideon Bibles for everyone.
Sarah: I miss sexy Grandma.
Janet: I'm sure a lot of people do, darlin'. I'm sure a lot of people do.
