Quote from Sophia in The President's Coming! The President's Coming!

Sophia: President Bush is coming to dedicate the new senior citizen center down the street. The motorcade goes right by here.
Dorothy: So?
Sophia: So all the neighbors on the block will be out on their lawns. It'll be a hundred degrees out there, and they will need protection. They can pay me or fry in the sun.
Dorothy: Oh, Ma, that is a terrible thing to do to your neighbors.
Sophia: I'll cut you in for half.
Dorothy: We should also sell visors.

Quote from Rose

Blanche: What's your gripe with the President, anyway?
Dorothy: He calls himself the "education president," but our education system has some serious problems. I see the illiteracy, I see dropouts, I see kids who can't even find India on a map.
Rose: Well, to be fair, Dorothy, that stumped Columbus too.

Quote from Rose

Sophia: Pussycat, are you doing the grocery shopping today?
Dorothy: Yeah. Something you want?
Sophia: Uh, pick up a couple of chicken breasts, and why don't we say 40 - better make that 45 - tubes of sunscreen.
Rose: Oh, Sophia, I've made that mistake before. The best thing to do is just turn the oven down if you don't want the chicken to burn.
Dorothy: Rose, honey, I don't think my mother was planning on using the suntan lotion on the chicken. What do you mean, you've made that mistake before?

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.
