Sophia Quote #1285
Dorothy: Ma, did you have a good time?
Sophia: Great. I even made a few bucks.
Blanche: How did you do that, Sophia?
Sophia: The place was packed with old geezers ripe for the picking. I charged them ten cents a dance.
Dorothy: Ma, you didn't!
Sophia: Please. I worked hard for that money. Half the time they'd fall asleep in the middle of a song. How would you like to hold Mr. Morelli up for two choruses of "Jeepers Creepers"?
Dorothy: Ma, you did all that for 10 cents?
Sophia: I know. It's worth a buck. But all these guys lived through the Depression. For a buck they expect a good time, a shoe shine and a full tank of gas.
Quote from Rose
Rose: [sighs] As they say in St. Olaf, helderbargenberg gefloefen wurterberg.
Dorothy: You wanna help us out here, Rose?
Rose: Well, there's really no English word for gefloefen. Loosely translated, it means, "I hope you have a license to carry that gefloefen."
Quote from Sophia
Miles: Dinner was delicious, Rose. What was it?
Rose: It's a Scandinavian specialty - kuldomar.
Miles: I've never heard of that before, but it's marvelous.
Rose: Oh, you just throw together some ground pork and cabbage.
Sophia: Cabbage, she serves me. In ten minutes I could be sky-writing.
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.
