Sophia Quote #80
Augustine: My condolences on your husband's passing.
Sophia: Thank you. I've been in mourning 22 years.
Augustine: My wife's been dead 31 years. Philomena Del Nero, she was from our village.
Sophia: Is she the one whose father used to stand outside of town, drink Chianti, and play with a top all day?
Augustine: Yes. He lived with us for two years after we get married. Thank God he drank himself to death.
Quote from Blanche
Dorothy: So who did you sign me up to bowl with?
Rose: Oh, I wanted to talk to you about that.
Blanche: [entering] Well, I am stunned! Just stunned! Stunned is the only way to describe how stunned I am!
Dorothy: Just a minute, just a minute, Blanche. Are you trying to tell us that you are stunned?
Quote from Rose
Rose: Oh, look, I know you're both still angry with me and you have every right to be, but I hope you can forgive me for the way I acted. Winning doesn't mean anything if it means losing your two best friends. Besides, we all bowled well this year. That's why I had all our names engraved on this trophy. In my opinion, we're all winners.
Blanche: Well, Rose. What a sweet thing to do.
Dorothy: Oh, Rose, can I ask you a question?
Dorothy: Why is your name three times larger than ours?
Rose: Because I'm the one who actually won it. If you ever want to look at it, it'll be in my bedroom.
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.
