Aired October 19, 1985

Blanche is unsure what to do after Dorothy's new boyfriend makes a pass at her.

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Oh, hello there. I don't believe we've been introduced. My name is Blanche Deveraux. That's French for "Blanche Deveraux."

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: The last time a friend's sweetheart made a pass at me, I lost my friend and her beau.
Rose: And her beau?
Blanche: That's right. Anderbeau Johnson. Clyde Whitehead, Anderbeau's beau, decided he wanted to see my cheerleader's sweater from the inside. So when I told Anderbeau, she blamed the whole thing on me, and then Clyde would never speak to me again for telling! I lost Anderbeau and her beau! Now you understand why I can't tell Dorothy?
Rose: I don't even understand who Anderbobo is.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Let me tell you a story. Sicily, 1912. Picture this: Two young girls, best friends, who shared three things: a pizza recipe, some dough, and a dream. Everything is going great until one day, a fast-talking pepperoni salesman gallops into town. Of course, both girls are impressed. He dates one one night, the other, the next night. Pretty soon, he drives a wedge between them. Before you know it, the pizza suffers, the business suffers, the friendship suffers. The girls part company and head for America, never to see one another again. Rose, one of those girls was me. The other one you probably know as Mama Celeste.
Rose: Sophia, what's the point?
Sophia: The point is, I lost a fortune!

Quote from Blanche

Dorothy: I guess when it came down to it, I didn't believe you because I didn't want to.
Blanche: Nobody ever believes me when I'm telling the truth. I guess it's the curse of being a devastatingly beautiful woman.
Dorothy: Oh, please!
Blanche: The only other woman who could possibly understand is Priscilla Presley and Susan Anton. No, not Susan Anton. Even my husband didn't believe me on our wedding night when I told him he was the first.
Dorothy: But George wasn't your first.
Blanche: Well, he didn't know that! The point is, he didn't believe me.

Quote from Rose

Dorothy: You know something? We're really lucky we found a doctor who makes house calls.
Rose: I know. When I was growing up in Minnesota, the doctor made house calls all the time for us and the livestock.
Dorothy: You and the animals had the same doctor?
Rose: Sure. Worked out fine until the doctor started drinking hog liniment and tried to neuter the Swensen brothers.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: And this is Sophia.
Dr. Clayton: What seems to be her problem?
Dorothy: Her blood pressure is up and she's a little pale and a little tired.
Dr. Clayton: Is she presently on any medication?
Dorothy: Yes, to control blood pressure.
Dr. Clayton: How long's she been on that medication?
Sophia: What am I, two years old? I don't know my own symptoms? I've lived in this body since I was born. If something goes wrong, I'm the first one to hear about it!
Dr. Clayton: I'm sorry, Sophia. What seems to be the problem?
Sophia: What am I, a doctor?

Quote from Blanche

Dr. Clayton: I'm pleased to meet you.
Blanche: Forgive me for staring, but I do declare, you're just about the most attractive man I've seen in Florida since Mr. John Forsythe performed Hamlet at the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre.

Quote from Rose

Rose: All I know is that Dorothy should find out what kind of a man Elliot really is. Now, if you're her friend, you'll tell her.
Blanche: But honey, she'd be devastated! What kind of a friend would I be to hurt her?
Rose: Well, what kind of a friend would you be if you let Elliot ruin her life? She could marry that man! They could have a child! ... They could adopt a child! And then one night at the country club, possibly during little Mei-Ling's coming-out party Dorothy's having the time of her life when she goes to the powder room and she overhears the towel lady telling Mrs. Steinbeck that Dorothy's husband, Dr. Elliot Clayton, has bonged every female member of the country club. Can you let that happen to Dorothy? Can you let that happen to little Mei-Ling? Hasn't she suffered enough?
Blanche: Not as much as I have listening to that story.

Quote from Blanche

Dorothy: You're used to getting all the attention, and someone comes along and wants me and not you and it is eating your guts out.
Blanche: Eating my guts out?
Dorothy: You know something? You could never be a real friend to another woman, and you know why?
Blanche: Why?
Dorothy: Because you're a slut!
Blanche: A slut?!
Dorothy: Don't repeat everything I say.
Blanche: Don't repeat everything you say? I'm not!
Dorothy: You just did.
Blanche: Nothing you say's worth repeatin'.
Dorothy: You, Blanche, are an amoral, backstabbing, self-centered Jezebel, and I am very glad that this happened because now I know really what kind of person you are.
Blanche: The hell with you and your oversexed boyfriend, Dorothy Zbornak! I'm just glad that little Mei-Ling's coming-out party was ruined.
Dorothy: Who?
Blanche: And I'm glad that Elliot is bonging every woman at your country club!
Dorothy: What the hell are you talking about?
Blanche: Ask the towel lady!

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: If that's the doctor, tell him I have no insurance and no money! If he still wants to come in, he just wants to see me naked.

Quote from Dorothy

Rose: Morning, Dorothy. Blanche and I were just having some coffee. Would you care to join us?
Dorothy: Frankly, Rose, I would rather use Willie Nelson's hairbrush.
Blanche: Must you attack everything Southern?

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Wait a minute! Now just where do you think you're going?
Sophia: Over to Mildred's to watch the adult movie channel. She has a wide-screen TV.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: You are not going anywhere. Dr. Clayton is coming.
Sophia: Dr. Silvano is my doctor!
Dorothy: Dr. Silvano is dead.
Sophia: Trust me, I'm in better shape than he is. Goodbye.
Dorothy: Ma, you have to have an examination. Your blood pressure is up, you're tired, you have absolutely no color.
Sophia: I'm an old white woman. I'm not supposed to have color. You want color? Talk to Lena Horne.

Quote from Sophia

Rose: Here we are, Sophia. Homemade chicken soup. I used to make it for my husband when he wasn't feeling well.
Sophia: Did you make it for him the last time he wasn't feeling well?

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: I just happened upon the most divine dress sale. I would'have called you girls, but all they had left were petites.

Quote from Rose

Rose: Oh, Miami's a beautiful city. I'm sure you'll enjoy living here.
Dorothy: Yes, and I'm sure your wife, Mrs. Clayton, will enjoy it, too.
Dr. Clayton: Mrs. Clayton and I are no longer together.
Dorothy: Oh, I'm so sorry. So, tell me, have you had a chance to see much of the city?
Dr. Clayton: No, not really.
Dorothy: Perhaps I could show you some of the highlights sometime.
Dr. Clayton: That sounds great. I'd love it!
Rose: I'd love to go, too. [Dorothy stomps on Rose's foot] Except I have to wash my hair every day for the rest of my life. It's very oily.

Quote from Rose

Dr. Clayton: Hello, Rose. My, what is that marvelous scent you're wearing?
Rose: Fancy albacore tuna. I made a casserole for dinner.
Dr. Clayton: Well, you certainly wear it well.
Rose: I think it's the pimento that really sets it off.

Quote from Sophia

Rose: I know it doesn't feel like it right now, but you did the right thing by telling Dorothy about Elliot.
Sophia: What about Elliot?
Blanche: He made a pass at me.
Sophia: While he's seeing my Dorothy?
Rose: Yes.
Sophia: I can't believe it! My daughter is finally dating a doctor he turns out to be a scuzz bucket! Why does everything happen to me?

Quote from Sophia

Rose: What's the matter, Sophia? You couldn't sleep, either?
Sophia: No, I was sleeping great, Rose. I just wanted to show off my pajamas.

Quote from Rose

Rose: [seductively] Has anyone ever told you you look exactly like Jerry Vale?
Dr. Clayton: No.
Rose: They should. [gyrating] He's the only man in the world that can make the hair on my arms stand up. Can I fix you a drink?
Dr. Clayton: No, thanks. Is something wrong with your leg?
Rose: Nothing you can't fix, doctor man.
Dr. Clayton: I beg your pardon?
Rose: I know I look square, but I'm like my father's tractor. I take awhile to warm up, but once I get going, I can turn your topsoil 'til the cows come home.
Dr. Clayton: Rose, please.
Rose: Wanna see some Polaroids of me in my tennis skirt?

Quote from Rose

Rose: Oh, Blanche, Dorothy! Oh, I'm so glad you made up. I knew you couldn't stay mad for long.
Blanche: Of course we couldn't.
Rose: Oh, it takes a big woman to forgive somebody calling her a slut!

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Fight over? Good. Here, taste these. I'm conducting a pizza challenge. One of these is mine, one is Mama you-know-who's. Taste them and tell me which you like better. If I'm right, this could be worth millions. My face could be in every freezer in America.
Blanche: Mmm. A, definitely.
Rose: Mmm. Yep, A.
Dorothy: Yeah, A. A, without a doubt.
Sophia: You can't pick men and you can't pick pizza!
