Quote from Sophia

Blanche: You know, Sophia, this birthday thing kinda has me depressed as well. You think you could help me, too?
Sophia: Sure. No matter how bad things get, remember these sage words - you're old, you sag, get over it.
Blanche: Sophia!
Sophia: So what if you knew Jesus personally? Wake up and smell the coffee, you fossil.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Ma, I just want to give him a call.
Sophia: Pussycat, you're out of your league. There are some people you just can't help. It's like the Good Lord said - "You gotta know when to hold 'em. Know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away."
Dorothy: Ma, that's not the Good Lord, that's Kenny Rogers.
Sophia: God, Kenny Rogers. Tomato, tomah-to.

Quote from Rose

Rose: Don't worry, Dorothy. Maybe Jimmy'll come around.
Dorothy: Oh, I wish I could believe you, but, Rose, I have been there. I mean, after a while you feel you're just in this gigantic black hole.
Rose: We had a gigantic black hole back in St. Olaf.
Sophia: Oh, God.
Rose: On Main Street, right in front of the courthouse where Charlie and I got our marriage license and our permit to have kids. Oh, it was a lovely hole. Everybody in town would stand around and look in it.
Dorothy: And they say Hollywood is the entertainment capital of the world.
Rose: Well, we didn't just look in it. Sometimes we'd point, too. Or spit and time it. Then there was always that wise guy who'd have a couple of drinks and unzip himself and-
Dorothy: It's official. I hate her.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: You know, I can see why your friend got disillusioned, but I don't see why he withdrew for 22 years.
Dorothy: Oh, I can. It happened to me. When Stanley walked out, I was so devastated, I locked myself in my bedroom. It was the one place that didn't remind me of Stan. And I just never wanted to come out. Fortunately, someone was there to get me out of that room. Thanks, Ma.
Sophia: Sure, Pussycat.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: My mistake. I thought since you looked like Yoda, you were also wise.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: My heart! My heart! Everything has gone black. I'm coming to you, Sallie.
Dorothy: Ma! Oh, God! Oh, God. Oh, God! Hang on, Ma! Oh, please, please, hang on!
Sophia: [normally] All right, but you have to do me a favor.
Dorothy: To the moon, Ma. If you wanted a favor, you could just ask.
Sophia: There are only two things I look forward to each day, and both of them involve yankin' a chain.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: How pathetic a person could live their life totally alone, devoid of companionship or love. I wish I could do something.
Sophia: Start a club.

Quote from Dorothy

Blanche: Dorothy, how'd things go tonight?
Dorothy: I am so happy that I volunteered for Meals on Wheels, and I think I'm really making progress with Jimmy. Although I could make more if Ma would stop yelling "Boo!"

Quote from Rose

Rose: Everybody wants a party, no matter what they say. But if you think we don't need to know Blanche's real age, maybe we should-
Dorothy: Open the damn envelope.
Rose: I can't believe it. After all these years, we're finally gonna know. We're gonna know the true age of Blanche Devereaux. "Deleted by authority of the governor." Oh, they- These are all like that.
Dorothy: Rose, you know what this means?
Rose: Yeah. She must have really jumped on this guy's bandwagon.
Dorothy: You almost got it, Rose.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: You know, Rose, you were right. What's in a number? Why, I still have my health, I have my challenging career at the museum. Most of all, I have you all - my family. All that birthday nonsense was just an exercise in vanity. And so today, for the very first time, Blanche Devereaux is gonna reveal her true and accurate age. Right after you tell me your weight.
Rose: 119.
Blanche: 42.
Rose: Coffee?
Blanche: Please.

Quote from Blanche

Rose: Has anybody seen Blanche? She had a date last night, and this morning her bed's all made and she's not even there.
Sophia: Wait a minute. Here's our walking playground now. Boy, it must be true love. This guy is slowing down to 5 miles an hour.
Blanche: Mornin', everybody.
Dorothy: Blanche, what is going on? That guy's a little young, even for you.
Blanche: What are you talkin' about? He's a mature young man with his own business. Now, who wants to help me pick out five magazines?

Quote from Blanche

Dorothy: You haven't drowned yourself in young men since this time last year, when you brought those twins home from the Jimmy Smits look-alike contest.
Blanche: Oh, yeah, Jorge and Esteban. Romantic, passionate and virtually interchangeable.

Quote from Blanche

Dorothy: You know, Rose is right. Every year at this time you start robbing the cra- Hey, wait a minute, wait a minute. By any chance, does somebody have a birthday coming up?
Blanche: All right, yes, damn it. It's almost my birthday. And I intend to forget all about it. And if you are indeed my friends, you will forget about it, too, and never bring the sordid subject up again.

Quote from Dorothy

Sophia: I need your help tonight for a charity.
Dorothy: I'm sorry, honey. I have a date.
Sophia: You call that a date? Thyroid Freddie? His eyes bug right out of his head. He looks like he's being choked.
Dorothy: Now stop it. Freddie is a fine man. You know, When he was younger, he could've been an astronaut, except for, well, you know, that eye thing.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: I've been working for this Meals on Wheels program, and I need a driver. Please?
Dorothy: Oh, all right, Ma. I'll cancel Banjo Eyes.
Sophia: Don't worry. There'll be other dates, Gloria.
Dorothy: Ma, Gloria is my sister. I'm Dorothy.
Sophia: I know. There'll be other dates for Gloria.
