The Golden Girls: That's for Me to Know

704. That's for Me to Know

Aired October 12, 1991

After Rose calls the building inspector, Blanche learns she can only have two tenants and must evict someone. Meanwhile, Dorothy wants to know more about her family history, but Sophia is keeping a secret.

Quote from Rose

Rose: You know, people in St. Olaf are lucky. We all had the same family tree. You can trace each of us back to the same brother and sister.
Dorothy: Well, I think that completes the puzzle.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Rose, if I use this permit, any kind of scum could walk through the door. Thieves, murderers, men who haven't seen a woman for 10 years, who've been doin' nothin' but liftin' weights and countin' the days. Dorothy, remind me again why this was a bad idea.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Nice try, Ma. Let's talk about 1920.
Sophia: Bad year. Now, 1918...
Dorothy: I said 1920.
Sophia: Okay, 1920 it is. The year I sailed for America. Ah, America. The land of opportunity, where the streets were paved with gold, and a young man named Irving Berlin was writing songs like this. Hit it. Dorothy, where's our piano player?

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Morning, Rose, Dorothy. What a night. Did you hear that racket out front? I didn't sleep at all. I think Dreyfuss has the hots for our lawn flamingo.
Dorothy: Ma, we don't have a lawn flamingo.
Sophia: In that case, we'd better tip the paperboy.

Quote from Dorothy

Sophia: What's with the photo albums?
Dorothy: Oh, I'm doing a family history. And I'm gonna need your help. You know, I think it's important to tell the grandchildren about their ancestors. Give them a sense of pride in those who came before them.
Sophia: Even Uncle Nunzio?
Dorothy: Even Uncle Nunzio, but we call the goat a pet.

Quote from Rose

Blanche: Hey, I'll tell you one thing, the damn government isn't gonna see one red cent of my money.
Rose: But, Blanche, the city requires a permit on any new home construction built within five feet of a standing structure used as a primary dwelling.
Dorothy: Rose, all this technical information, it doesn't sound like you.
Rose: And if Blanche doesn't get that permit, I think they could make her live in a shoe.
Dorothy: Welcome back, sweetheart.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: May I remind you, the purpose of these stories is to give the kids family pride.
Sophia: Hey, I'll have you know it was my father who single-handedly invented the ransom note.

Quote from Rose

Blanche: Rose, you're off the hook. Don just made a quick, five-minute inspection and guess what? The permit's only $40. You were right about tellin' the truth.
Rose: Oh, well, if there's one thing I'm good at, it's citizenship. That and guessing the weight of brood sows.
Blanche: Shut up.
Rose: 135.

Quote from Rose

Rose: I know what you're gonna say, Dorothy, you can't stand to see me go. But I've made up my mind.
Dorothy: Rose, listen-
Rose: Now you're going to tell me, "I'll miss you. God, how I'll miss you."
Dorothy: Rose, you have to listen to me.
Rose: "You know, Rosie," you're thinking. "I sure could use one last St. Olaf story before you leave." And then I'd ask, "Shall I tell you about how the St. Olafians were one of the original lost tribes of Israel?"
Dorothy: Taxi!
Rose: I knew you were gonna say that.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Land. I'm a landowner. I've made it. And it only took 80 years. Finally, property. I'll be planting soon.
Dorothy: Ma.
Rose: Oh, Blanche, this was so generous of you. I'm so touched.
Blanche: Well, you know, I just got to thinkin'. Yeah, this house was the home of my family. But you're right, you're family now. So, now it's our home.
Sophia: Rabbits. Gonna raise me some rabbits as big as your head.

Quote from Blanche

Don: Hi, I'm Don Benson. I'm here about the hot tub.
Blanche: Oh, my goodness, word does travel fast. It's not in yet, Don.
Don: Oh, no, I'm not here to soak in it. I'm a city inspector.
Blanche: [closing door] You can't come in here. This house has been quarantined. We all have, uh... Quick, Rose, give me a deadly disease.
Rose: Oh, I'm sorry, Blanche. I don't have a deadly disease.
Blanche: Well, get one.
