Sophia Quote #991
Dorothy: Who's the letter from, Ma?
Sophia: Joanne Pescatore. She's coming to Miami for a visit.
Dorothy: Joanne Pescatore? Didn't she own that little candy store down the street from us in Brooklyn?
Sophia: That was Jeanette Passadano.
Dorothy: Oh. Then who was Joanne Pescatore?
Sophia: How the hell should I know? This letter's for Rose.
Dorothy: Ma, why are you reading Rose's mail?
Sophia: Because all you got were bills. Listen to this at the end. Tell me if you think Joanne's a lesbian.
Quote from Sophia
Sophia: Boy, we had some great times at the home, didn't we, Ida?
Ida: We sure did.
Sophia: Dorothy, Ida was the best bar none at faking an angina attack at dinner so we could swap our nonfat yogurt for real sour cream. There wasn't a patient at Shady Pines that didn't bless Ida every time we sat down to eat a baked potato.
Quote from Sophia
Blanche: How does this go again? To win something, you have to get three to match?
Rose: Right. If you get three coconuts, you win $100.
Dorothy: What if you get three palm trees?
Sophia: You don't have three palm trees. That means you win $10,000.
Dorothy: Ma, I know what a palm tree looks like.
Sophia: You also know what a handsome doctor looks like. It doesn't mean you've got one.
Quote from The Flu
Blanche: You don't have to worry about me. I never get sick. I take very good care of myself. I treat my body like a temple.
Sophia: Yeah, open to everyone, day or night.
Quote from The Engagement
Rose: I don't drink before bedtime. I stop all liquids at noon and I still wake up.
Sophia: I never have that problem. Never. I sleep like a log. I never get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. I go in the morning. Every morning like clockwork, at 7 am I pee. Unfortunately, I don't wake up till 8.
