The Golden Girls Quote of the Day

Dorothy: Do you believe her? She doesn't stop for a minute.
Blanche: I don't agree with it, but I do understand the thinking behind it. My granddaddy was the same way. He always said, "Idle hands are the devil's workshop." Course he also said, "Sitting on cold concrete will cause hemorrhoids." So we just sort of learned when to ignore him.

Rose: You know, people in St. Olaf are lucky. We all had the same family tree. You can trace each of us back to the same brother and sister.
Dorothy: Well, I think that completes the puzzle.

George: Oh, honey, you don't have to ask my forgiveness for anything. I love you. Good God, you're as pretty now as the day we met. You remember that first day we met?
Blanche: The University Club Cotillion. Our eyes met and I knew you were the only man for me. So when it was ladies' choice, I sent my fiance off for some punch, and I strutted up to you and I said, "May I have this dance?"
George: And I said, "The pleasure would be all mine."
Blanche: And I said, "I know it." Oh, those damn eyes. I still haven't seen in anyone else's what I see in yours.
[Blanche wakes up in bed, she looks and places her hand on the vacant pillow next to her]
Blanche: Oh! Oh. [chuckles]

Sophia: Just calm down. I'll show you an old Sicilian trick. This is how I grew up poor and managed to eat in the best restaurants in all of Italy. Watch. [adds salt to her champagne] Look. Learn. [spits out] It's awful! Swill!
Waiter: Is there a problem?
Sophia: You're supposed to take off your socks before you step on the grapes. Taste this.
Waiter: Oh, dear. Ladies, I'm terribly sorry. I'll get you a new bottle.
Sophia: No, no. It lingers on the palate. We won't be able to drink champagne for weeks.
Waiter: Well, at least let us pay for your meal.
Sophia: If you insist.
Waiter: Thank you.
Sophia: Now it's a celebration!

Dorothy: Look, race is not even an issue. Your daughter is twice my son's age. What can a women in her 40s possibly have in common with a boy in his 20s?
Blanche: Sex. At 20, a man is at his peak, and a woman in her 40s is also at her peak. So when the two come together, hot damn!

Blanche: Oh, girls, I'm so sorry to be late. I ran out of gas on the way home. It was just horrible. Nobody would stop to help me. This could never have happened in the Old South. What has become of chivalry, when men used to open doors for you, pull out your chair, tip their hat, kiss your hand, help you down out of your carriage, leave calling cards on little silver salvers?
Dorothy: So how far back do you want to go, Blanche? Do you still want to be able to vote?

Dorothy: Now listen, honey, while I'm gone, I'm putting you in charge of Ma.
Blanche: Me? Why Why me and not Rose?
Dorothy: Well, Rose couldn't keep our rock garden alive. What, I'm gonna give her my mother? Now look, as for instructions, Ma is to be fed twice a day. Walk her after her second meal. And don't give her anything liquid after 10:00.
