Quote from Sophia
Dorothy: I cannot believe how excited I am! I mean, he's practically a stranger, and I am crazy about him! I haven't felt this way about a man ever before.
Blanche: Oh, honey, you've been hit by the thunderbolt! Love at first sight! It happened to me once.
Sophia: Once? You've been hit by more lightning than the World Trade Center!
Rose: I was hit by the thunderbolt once.
Sophia: Probably a direct hit to the forehead.
Quote from Rose
Rose: It was the first time I saw my Charlie. I was seven and he was eight. It was a hot Minnesota summer and he had put up one of those little stands on the sidewalk.
Blanche: Selling lemonade.
Rose: Insurance. And I bought a nickel policy on my red wagon. And right after that, my wagon was destroyed.
Rose: Some hogs trampled it. I was hauling home a smoked ham for Mama and I think it set them off. Anyway, that's when I fell in love with Charlie. He paid for a new wagon, even though my policy didn't cover acts of swine.
Dorothy: ... "Acts of swine."
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.
