Quote from Dorothy in Second Motherhood

Plumber: I wouldn't bother getting another estimate. For that bathroom repair, that's the lowest you'll see.
Dorothy: Are you kidding? This is the highest I've seen.
Rose: $3,000!

Dorothy: Crooked plumbers.

 ‘Second Motherhood’ Quotes

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: Well, I just hate myself for feeling this way, but I don't want to be a mother again. I mean, it was a wonderful experience at the time, but I always thought this part of my life was supposed to be for me.
Dorothy: Honey, I understand exactly how you feel. I feel the same way. You know, at our age we should be grandmothers, not mothers. Once a week, the grandchildren come over for a visit. You cook them dinner, they spill it on the furniture. They hide under your bed. You hurt yourself looking for them. They ask you what those spots on your hands are. They tell you they love you and then just before total exhaustion sets in, they go home and become their mother's problems.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: I've had a lot of experience. After all, I was married to one for 38 years.
