Quote from Sophia

Blanche: Hi, Sophia. Ooh, what you making?
Sophia: Lasagna al forno.
Rose: Smells delicious.
Sophia: Yeah. My great Aunt Nicolinda used to say, "Making lasagna al forno is like crossing a river. If you roll up your pants, don't be surprised if you find clams nipping at your heels."
Rose: What'd she mean by that?
Sophia: How should I know? She was a hopeless alcoholic.

Quote from Blanche

Rose: We're doing Sound of Music, and Blanche didn't get the lead.
Dorothy: Oh, I can't believe you weren't cast in the lead role. You've gotten it the past five years in a row.
Blanche: Well, they hired a new director, and he has no taste.
Rose: Blanche used to sleep with the old one. The new director's gay.
Blanche: A gay theater director. Did you ever hear of such a thing?
Dorothy: It's absolutely shocking. Next thing you know they'll have black basketball players in the NBA.

Quote from Dorothy

Sophia: I love your toupee, Stanley. Is it new?
Stan: Yeah. The guy at the shop calls it the Dan Rather model. You think it makes me look more intellectual?
Dorothy: Oh, absolutely. By the way, Stanley, your fly is open.
Stan: I'm so embarrassed.
Dorothy: Don't worry about it. I hear that Dan Rather has the same problem. That's why he sits behind a desk.

Quote from Dorothy

Angelo: Dorothy!
Dorothy: Uncle Angelo, it is so good to see you.
Angelo: Dorothy, you know something? You look more beautiful now than you did on your wedding day.
Stan: You just used up all 50 Hail Marys on that one.
Angelo: Stanley, you're still a funny guy. You got a sense of humor still, huh? He still make you laugh like he used to?
Dorothy: Well, not really. But then again, I haven't seen him naked lately.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: I wish I'd taken my raincoat.
Dorothy: Why are you two dressed like that?
Blanche: Well, these are our costumes for the play, Dorothy. We were in the middle of dress rehearsal when they told us all to go home right away.
Rose: There's a hurricane heading for Miami.
Angelo: You know, I think I will take a slice of cake. Hello.
Dorothy: Uncle Angelo, I'd, uh, like you to meet, uh uh...
Rose: I'm Sister Rose.
Angelo: How do you do? Nice to meet you.
Blanche: I'm Sister Blanche.
Angelo: Glad to meet you.
Blanche: We're here, uh, collecting lingerie for needy sexy people.

Quote from Blanche

Stan: I just heard on TV the airports are closed. There's a hurricane headed this way. They want everyone to stay where they are.
Dorothy: That means we could be trapped together for days.
Blanche: Oh, Jesus! Please protect us and watch over us in this our hour of need.
Dorothy: Amen.

Quote from Blanche

Rose: I've never been through a hurricane before.
Blanche: Oh, there's nothing to be afraid of. I've been through a couple of hurricanes. Actually, they could be kind of fun. I remember one when I was married...
Angelo: Married?
Blanche: Mary. When I was Mary in the Christmas pageant at the convent. Remember that, Sister Rose?
Rose: Oh, my, yes. Sister Blanche is quite an actress.
Stan: Yeah, she'd have to be to make anyone believe she was a virgin.

Quote from Sophia

Stan: Here goes. [singing] Embrace me My sweet embraceable you Embrace me You irreplaceable you
Sophia: Dorothy! Dorothy, I just had a terrible nightmare.
Dorothy: Ma, what was it?
Sophia: This. Break it up. Stanley, think of me as the Berlin Wall. Try to climb over me, and you'll know what barb wire between your legs feels like. Gotcha. Dorothy, how did this start? Cole Porter?
Dorothy: Gershwin.
Sophia: Thank God I came in time.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: I'll get it. [answering phone] Hello. Hi, Walter. How are you? Now, I feel like a caged animal in heat, too. Oh! Walter, you naughty boy. Keep on talking. What am I wearing? Well, to be perfectly honest, a nun's outfit. Oh! That sounds good to me. Uh-huh. I'll be over there just as soon as this storm lets up. Uh-huh. [to Angelo] He's a leper. I'm the only one who'll touch him.

Quote from Rose

Blanche: Look, everybody. The storm's letting up. I'm gonna run right over to Walter's.
Rose: Aren't you gonna change?
Blanche: No.
Rose: You know, it's still pretty windy out there. I'm gonna go outside and see if I can get airborne.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Dorothy, it's only for one afternoon. It'll break your uncle's heart if he finds out you're divorced.
Dorothy: Ma, forget it. We're divorced because Stanley cheated on me. He is a loathsome, repulsive creature. And even the thought of pretending to be married makes me physically ill.
Stan: Fine, but I'm still staying for dinner.
Sophia: Dorothy, if you don't do this, I'll never speak to you again.
Dorothy: I don't care.
Sophia: I'll cut you out of the will.
Dorothy: I don't care.
Sophia: I'll invite Stan to eat over every night for the rest of your life.
Dorothy: How bad can it be? It's just for the day.

Quote from Dorothy

Angelo: I cannot go on with this deception any longer. I can't marry you. I'm not a priest. I never was.
Dorothy: Uncle Angelo, what are you talking about?
Sophia: I gotta sit down.
Angelo: Let me tell you a story. Picture it: Sicily, 1914. I promised our dear sainted mother on her deathbed I'm-a gonna join the priesthood. On my way to the seminary in Palermo, I stop off in a local trattoria for a glass of Chianti. The waitress bring drink to the table is a vision. Luscious lips, full bosom and a behind so round, so firm, you got to fall down on your knees and cry put at its magnificent regal beauty. I'm a butt man. Anyway, my devotion to God doesn't waver. But suddenly, the idea of living with a bunch of guys in itchy robes doesn't seem quite as appealing as that tuckus. So I tear up my priest application, ask Philomena to marry me, and we lived the next 72 years in wedded bliss.

Quote from Dorothy

Stan: Hello, Mama Bear. Papa Bear's back in the cave.
Dorothy: I could vomit just looking at you.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Ma, you are making lasagna al forno. What is the occasion?
Sophia: There's no occasion. I just know it's your favorite. [doorbell] I'll get it.
Dorothy: This takes 12 hours to make. What do you want?
Sophia: Nothing. And it takes 16.
Dorothy: Ma, the only time you make lasagna al forno is for funerals and favors. You're not wearing black, so what do you want?
Sophia: Nothing. Dorothy, you're a sick, suspicious, paranoid person. [opens door] Stan, my favorite ex-son-in-law.
