Quote from Sophia in You Gotta Have Hope

Sophia: Dorothy, I've got some good news. I've had a change of heart. I'll let the triplets be in your show for free.
Blanche: Why, Sophia, that's w- You don't know how much good this does us.
Dorothy: Wait just a minute. What's the catch?
Sophia: That is so typical of you. Why do you automatically assume because I'm trying to do something nice there's a catch?
Dorothy: So there isn't a catch.
Sophia: I didn't say that. It just ticks me off that you automatically assume there's one.


 ‘You Gotta Have Hope’ Quotes

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: This Rose/Bob Hope thing reminds me of a similar situation back in my village. Florence Pontevecchio used to fantasize that Alberto Bolognese was her brother.
Blanche: Who was Alberto Bolognese?
Sophia: He was the boot maker in the village.
Dorothy: What's so special about that?
Sophia: Did I say it was special? I said it was similar. I'm having a cup of tea, talking. The two of you have a look on your face like you paid for Phantom of the Opera tickets. Excuse me for not being Somerset Maugham. Better I should say nothing from now on and sit here like a pincushion!

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: I still can't believe that Rose caused all this trouble.
Dorothy: Unbelievable.
Blanche: This whole fantasy about Bob Hope is sick.
Dorothy: Sick.
Blanche: I mean, if she's gonna have fantasies, they ought to be the normal, healthy kind, like sweaty Argentinean cowboys whipping things while they ride naked on the back of Brahma bulls.
Dorothy: I have to remember to stop using your towels.

Quote from Rose

Dorothy: Oh, this is terrible. The Ladies Auxiliary puts me in charge of the variety show, and we can't come up with one decent act.
Rose: I was just thinking, it's too bad we're not back in St. Olaf.
Blanche: Why? They have a lot of talent back in St. Olaf?
Rose: No. It's lunchtime there. I could really go for a smoked kipper hero.
