Sophia Quote #1764
Dorothy: Ma, I think this will be good for you. Mr. Porter seems like a nice man. I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun there.
Sophia: And don't forget the money. I haven't had a paycheck since 1942, and then I blew it all on war bonds.
Dorothy: Well, at least you got it back.
Sophia: No, Italian war bonds. I fell for their slick advertising campaign. "Buy Italian war bonds - the quickest, surest, fascist way to double your money."
Quote from Rose
Rose: Well, it wasn't unnatural in St. Olaf. We not only took care of our old people, we revered them, honored them, put them on a pedestal. 'Course, that's how we got to be the broken hip capital of the Midwest.
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.
