Quote from Sophia

Ham: Blanche!
Blanche: Well, Ham Lushbough, you sex-hungry devil! Now, I told you, no more. Go home and take a cold shower.
Ham: No. Not until you know the reason why I keep telling you I can't sleep with you.
Dorothy: Look, Ma, listen, maybe watching some TV in another room might be a good idea.
Sophia: Fine, Dorothy, but keep the volume down.
Dorothy: Ma!


Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Oh, I wonder what would happen if somebody called my sister Virginia and told her this terribly embarrassing story. I guess there's only one way to find out.

Quote from Rose

Dorothy: Rose, there's something we have to talk about. There was an article in today's paper.
Rose: The one about the UFO being a secret bomber?
Dorothy: I'm sorry, Rose.
Rose: Sorry for what? Just because that one bomber wasn't a UFO doesn't mean we should stop watching for others. Does it? Oh. I guess there isn't much point in sitting out here anymore, is there?
Dorothy: Oh, I don't know, Rose. It's such a nice night. Let's stay awhile.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Look! Mr. Feinbaum's totally naked in his bedroom window!
Dorothy: That is the third time we caught you cheating. Ma, you're out of the game.
Sophia: Hey, gimme a break! When you're 80, you're allowed to cheat, just like you're allowed to take money out of your daughter's purse. Oops! Uh... Was that the phone? Don't trouble yourselves. I'll get it.
