Quote from Sophia in Second Motherhood

Rose: Sophia, look! Isn't it wonderful? What do you think?
Sophia: Looks like a bathroom.
Dorothy: A bathroom that works! And you were so sure that we couldn't do it ourselves. Watch. Girls, come on. One, two, three! [Dorothy turns on a tap, the shower runs]
Sophia: Knock it off. It's water, not oil.


 ‘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

Rose: You're a wonderful plumber's assistant, Dorothy. Boy, you sure know your way around a snake.
Dorothy: I've had a lot of experience. After all, I was married to one for 38 years.
