Quote from Blanche

Blanche: And Grammy's wind chimes. Oh, she loved wind chimes. Had them in every room. And my balcony.
Oh, I remember as a girl of 10, I used to wander out here, and all the little boys from all around would come and serenade me. [singing] I see London, I see France I see Blanche's underpants.

Quote from Blanche

Dorothy: Fine. How long do you think you can stay handcuffed?
Blanche: My personal best is 32 hours. But of course, then I had somebody to play with.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: How dare you mock my Grammy?
Dorothy: Oh, Blanche, honey, you've lost the battle, but at least you can still come here and visit the grounds.
Blanche: It won't be the same. Dorothy, they're gonna build a cheap motel here.
Dorothy: You'll be back.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: Well, I do not believe it. I simply do not believe it.
Dorothy: What, Blanche?
Blanche: Oh, Dorothy, I just talked to somebody back home, and they are doin' the most horrible thing. They are tearin' down the most important building in Blanche Devereaux's family history.
Dorothy: Oh, my God, they're tearing down Mattress World.
Blanche: Even worse than that. They are tearin' down the place where I spent my happiest moments as a child.
Dorothy: Oh, I'm sorry, Blanche. They're tearing down Boys Town.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Dorothy, they are tearin' down Grammy Hollingsworth's plantation. That beautiful old place is gonna be gone forever. I used to spend my summers there, and Christmas vacations. And whenever there was a fight in the house between Big Daddy and Big Mommy-
Dorothy: Big Mommy. Gee, I don't think I ever knew her name before.
Blanche: Dorothy, I just don't believe you. When you were a child, didn't you have some beautiful, fantastic place where you'd go, and it would seem just like a fairyland? Oh, that's right. You grew up in Brooklyn.

Quote from Sophia

Sal: Sweetheart, how do you feel?
Sophia: How do I feel? I feel great. Hey, this is wonderful. My bunions don't hurt, my arthritis is gone, and my teeth... Are teeth!
Sal: Here, all the parts work.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Ma, you were driving? What is wrong with you? What, do you have some sort of a death wish?
Sophia: No, I have a life wish. I've seen the white light. Now that I know there's a place for me on the other side, I'm not gonna live in fear anymore. Pussycat, what's that on your blouse? [Sophia flicks Dorothy's face as she looks down] See? I laugh in the face of death. [laughing exaggeratedly]

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Ma, stop it. I don't want to hear about this dream that is making you act reckless. The doctor says it was a lack of oxygen that made you hallucinate.
Sophia: All right, I won't tell you what your father said. I won't say another word. [Dorothy opens the refrigerator] The light! The light! I'm coming to you, Salie!

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Ma, I still cannot believe what you were doing on the interstate.
Sophia: I was living for the day, pussycat.
Dorothy: You were mooning a chain gang!
Sophia: And did you see the smiles on their faces? They probably hadn't seen a woman in years.
Dorothy: I guess not. No, they kept up with us through four warning shots.

Quote from Rose

Dorothy: Oh, Blanche, come on. You only think she's here. You and Grammy spent a lot of time here, and the memories are so alive. Of course you can... You can almost feel her here. Right, Rose?
Rose: Well, she's not under the bed.

Quote from Rose

Dorothy: Oh, now, come on. Blanche, this is ridiculous. You can't stay here all night. You're gonna have to eat sometime.
Blanche: Oh, this is where you don't know me, Dorothy. I can go for days without food, if that's what it takes.
Rose: Oh, come on, Blanche. You've been known to debone a chicken from across the room.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: You know, Blanche, when my father died, I heard his voice, too, or what I thought was his voice. Honey, it happens to everybody. It's wishful thinking. We want to hear them, so we do.
Blanche: You don't believe that Grammy's here, that she talks to me.
Dorothy: Of course I do, sweetheart. [in a Southern accent] Blanche, this is your Grammy. Y'all get yourself out of here, you dumb peckerwood.
Rose: Oh, I heard it that time, too. Feets, don't fail me now! [runs out]

Quote from Sophia

Blanche: Sophia, I just wonder if maybe Dorothy's right. Could this whole Grammy thing be somethin' I just talked myself into believing? Some kind of childhood nonsense?
Sophia: Dorothy doesn't understand about these things. You know, her father sent her a very special message, and she doesn't even want me to tell her about it.
Blanche: You can tell me about it, Sophia.
Sophia: Really?
Blanche: Oh, yes, I'd love to hear it.
Sophia: Picture it. Heaven. Two days ago. I'm holding onto Sal, telling him I'll never let go, when who shows up...

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: Well, whatever happened up in that room sure did her a world of good.
Sophia: Excuse me?
Dorothy: Well, it's just that I've I've never seen her like this. She must have had a really great experience.
Sophia: Oh, Blanche has a great experience, but your mother is a nut.
Dorothy: Ma, I never said that.
Sophia: Then why won't you talk to me about the white light?
Dorothy: It scares me, all right? It makes me feel like you're embracing death, and I don't want to see that. I want you to rail against it, Ma.
