521. Sisters and Other Strangers

Aired March 3, 1990

Blanche is angered when her sister Charmaine releases a book which seems to be based on her life. Meanwhile, Dorothy plays host to Stan's Czechoslovakian sister, Magda, who still supports Communism.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: I don't see Blanche.
Rose: Oh, she said she'd be over right after her hair appointment. She wanted to look her best for Charmaine's big day.
Dorothy: Well, Blanche is handling this a lot better than I would. I would kill Gloria if she ever wrote about my sexual escapades.
Sophia: You'd kill your sister over a pamphlet?

Quote from Rose

Rose: There was a time in my life when I wanted to leave St. Olaf. I just didn't feel it was big enough for me. I had my eye on the Great White Way. So I went to St. Gustav, the city that never naps. That first night I walked around in amazement. They had their own Fotomat! Of course, it wasn't as large as the Fotomats you see today. Now, here's the scary part. Suddenly, I realized I was this frightened little girl alone in the big city.
Dorothy: Accident, my foot!
Rose: It started to rain, and I stood there in the middle of the town square and cried.
Sophia: Gloria was the one who had to get the rabies shot.
Dorothy: I was a biter.
Rose: There I was, drenched, and someone yelled out: "Hey! Don't you have enough sense to come in out of the rain?" Well, then it hit me. And when I went home to St. Olaf, I passed on this bit of street-smart savvy. The next thing you know, in St. Olaf the in thing was coming in out of the rain. I was the town celebrity. Until the phrase "Watch out for that tractor" caught on.
Blanche: What in hell does this have to do with sisters?
Rose: Didn't I mention? St. Olaf and St. Gustav were sister cities.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: And you remember that time Big Daddy caught us skinny-dipping with those boys?
Charmaine: And you told him it was our Bible study group "just practicing baptizing."
Blanche: Oh, it would've worked, too, if you hadn't come up screaming: "Hey, y'all, things look bigger underwater!"

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: I don't believe this. I just don't believe it.
Dorothy: Blanche, what's the matter?
Blanche: Listen to this. "Vixen stared at herself in the mirror, her pouty lips, her flaxen hair, her flawless alabaster skin. Her proud breasts seemed to be saying, 'Is it just me or is it cold in here?'"
Dorothy: So?
Blanche: Pouty, flaxen, proud? What do you need? A photograph? This book is about me!

Quote from Sophia

Charmaine: That watch is a family heirloom.
Blanche: As far as I'm concerned you're no longer family.
Charmaine: I believe you said it was in your room. Which room is that?
Sophia: Turnstile at the end of the hall.

Quote from Sophia

Magda: Ladies, ladies, I have very bad news. I must shorten my stay, Dorothy. In fact, I'm leaving tomorrow.
Sophia: Dorothy, move the coffee table. I wanna do a cartwheel.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Oh, Ma, come here. I want you to taste this. ... Well?
Sophia: Wouldn't it be easier to put a pillow over my face while I sleep?
Dorothy: Just set the table. I'm expecting Stan and his cousin any minute.
Sophia: Oh, then this sauce is perfect. Well, maybe just a drop more disinfectant.

Quote from Rose

Blanche: You are not gonna believe this. My sister Charmaine just called me.
Dorothy: I didn't think the two of you were speaking.
Blanche: Well, we're not.
Rose: Then how did you know it was her on the other end of the line?
Dorothy: Rose, you're bringing down the curve for the whole country.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: Dorothy, what am I gonna do about my sister coming? By the time she leaves Miami, she'll be more famous here than I am.
Dorothy: Honey, only if they close the Sheraton.

Quote from Blanche

Rose: Did Charmaine leave already?
Blanche: Oh, Rose, honey, what am I gonna do? After all these years of jealousy and malice we finally have a chance to be friends. But now I've got to read her book. Why, if it's a piece of junk I'll have to tell her, and that'll just kill her.
Rose: Well, look on the bright side. It could be good.
Blanche: I was looking on the bright side.
