‘We're Outta Here’ Quotes

The Golden Girls: We're Outta Here

425. We're Outta Here

Aired May 13, 1989

After a wealthy Japanese businessman makes an offer for the house, the girls reminisce about some of the memories they've made there. [CLIP SHOW]

Quote from Rose

Rose: Back in St. Olaf, when I couldn't sleep, I'd get into my pajamas and have a nice glass of warm milk and slip under the covers and count cows jumping over my bed. It'd usually work like a charm, except every once in a while there'd be a cow with a particularly low udder and it would brush across my forehead and wake me up.

Quote from Blanche

Rose: This was a lovely afternoon.
Blanche: Oh, I'll say. I just love the legitimate theater. You know, I missed Mr. Lee J. Cobb in Death of a Salesman.
I missed Mr. Marlon Brando in Streetcar Named Desire. Well, I was damned if I was gonna miss Mr. Dick Butkus in Pal Joey.

Quote from Rose

Rose: Oh, yeah? Well, it just so happens that there are a lot of things I can do better than you guys.
Blanche: Name one.
Rose: Can you tighten a horn on a helmet? Smoke a herring in a pine log? Check a bull for a hernia?
Dorothy: I guess the really rough part is getting him to turn his head and cough.

Quote from Sophia

Dorothy: Ma, it's 2am. Where have you been?
Sophia: I stuffed pillows under the sheets so I could fool you during bed check. What is this, Stalag 17? I went for a walk. I couldn't sleep. I had a nightmare.

Quote from Rose

Rose: Tell me about it, Sophia. Sometimes I can interpret dreams.
Sophia: Blanche sold the house and I wound up back at Shady Pines.
Rose: Hmm. This is a tough one.

Quote from Sophia

Blanche: I just don't know what I'm gonna do. I'm just torn and confused. Guess I'll have to think about it all tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.
Dorothy: Calm down, Scarlett. There's no need to be so dramatic.
Sophia: Please. She can't help it. Everyone around here acts like a ham. There's been more bad acting, bad dancing and bad singing under this roof than a Suzanne Somers Special.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Look, you're all confused and upset about this house business. There's only one thing you can do.
Blanche: What is that, Sophia?
Sophia: Take the advice of a wise old Sicilian.
Rose: You, Sophia?
Sophia: No. Charlie Callas. Many years ago, my father had a similar problem when he was selling real estate.
Dorothy: I didn't know that Grandpa ever owned any real estate.
Sophia: He didn't. That was the problem. You see, it turned out he really didn't own the Vatican. Although he did have a very close friend who swore he was there the night Pop won the deed in a card game from Pope Ronnie the Magnificent.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: And there's a brand-new water heater in the garage and wall-to-wall carpeting in all the bedrooms.
Dorothy: Ma, what the hell are you doing?
Sophia: Selling the house. And that's a working fireplace, and with these cathedral ceilings, you could stack 50 VCRs if you wanted to. So, you think it over, and if you're interested, give us a call.
Mr. Yakamora: I make offer now. If you like, you call me. [bows]
Blanche: Sophia, honey, you can't just sell my house. Is this in dollars?
Sophia: No, it's in cucumber rolls. Of course it's in dollars.

Quote from Sophia

Rose: It just doesn't seem possible that five years has gone by since we moved in together.
Dorothy: It's gonna be rough if we have to go our separate ways. We've all learned to depend on each other so much.
Blanche: Especially Rose.
Rose: What's that supposed to mean?
Blanche: Oh, honey, it just means that sometimes you tend to be a bit naive, simple, childlike.
Sophia: She's calling you a moron. You don't want to live with a woman like that. Tell her to sell the house.

Quote from Sophia

Blanche: Girls, I'm really worried. Usually, by the time I've finished a cheesecake, I can solve any problem I'm trying to beat. This time I'm coming up empty.
Sophia: Then why is the top button on your skirt open?

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Listen, let's make a pact. If we decide to keep this house, we're gonna limit the number of relatives that get to come to visit.

Quote from Dorothy

Rose: [knock on door] I wonder who that could be.
Dorothy: I'm sure it's no one.
Stan: Hi, it's me, Stan.
Dorothy: See? What did I tell you?

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: Stanley, what do you want?
Stan: I need to borrow a car.
Dorothy: No.
Stan: Doesn't anybody want to know why I need to borrow a car?
All: No.

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: All right, Stanley. Why do you want to borrow the car?
Stan: Ah! I am involved in a new business venture, Stan's Pizzas. The gimmick is I can deliver a pizza faster to your house than Domino's. There's only one problem.
Rose: What?
Stan: It's impossible. I cracked up my car trying.
Rose: So the reason you want to use our car is so you can deliver pizzas?
Stan: No. Actually, what I would really like for you girls to do is be my drivers. I belong in the front office - supervising, franchising, teasing the high-school girls that work for me. I sense I may have just lost you. Ah, what the hell. I'm out of the pizza business. Is there anything else to eat?

Quote from Dorothy

Dorothy: Stanley, why do you always end up here when you have a problem?
Stan: You're my best friends.
Blanche: But we don't like you.
Stan: I know, but you're still my best friends.
Rose: Well, you can't depend on coming around here forever. Blanche is thinking about selling the house.
Stan: Selling our house? You can't be serious. We've had great times here.
Dorothy: We have had great times here. You've just had free food.
Stan: That is not true. We've had a million laughs under this roof.

Quote from Dorothy

Stan: We've certainly had some good times, haven't we, girls?
Dorothy: Yes, we have, and we'd like to have more, so would you please leave, Stanley?

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: Girls, I've made a decision.
Rose: What is it, Blanche? [phone rings]
Blanche: There are just too many precious memories in this house. I'm not about to trade them in for a few lousy dollars.
Sophia: It's Yakamora. He's doubled his offer.
Blanche: Tell him we'll be out by the first of the month.

Quote from Dorothy

Rose: Couldn't sleep either, Dorothy?
Dorothy: No, Rose.
Rose: Are you upset because Blanche is gonna sell the house and we can't live together?
Dorothy: No, I'm upset because Joe Piscopo didn't get the lead role in Rain Man. Oh, of course I'm upset about the house.

Quote from Sophia

Sophia: Dorothy, please don't send me back.
Dorothy: Ma, I am not sending you back to Shady Pines.
Sophia: Oh, my God! She found a cheaper home. Blanche, please, please don't sell the house. What the hell is that holding up your stockings?

Quote from Blanche

Rose: Well, it's too late to do anything until morning. We might as well get some sleep.
Blanche: I can't sleep. I'm wound up tighter than the girdle on a Baptist minister's wife at an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast.
Dorothy: Wow, that's tight.

Quote from Sophia

Blanche: Sophia, you're not making any sense.
Sophia: Excuse me, Mrs. Kierkegaard, it's 4am.
Dorothy: Ma, is there a point to this?
Sophia: And if there wasn't, what are you gonna do? Put decorative bars on my window? Yes, there is a point. If you're gonna sell real estate, make sure you own it.
Blanche: Sophia, I do own this house.
Sophia: Oh. Is anybody else hungry?

Quote from Blanche

Blanche: I cannot talk about this anymore. I'm just gonna call Yakamora and give him my decision.
Dorothy: Go ahead. Make your call.
Rose: We'll give you some privacy. We'll go in the other room.
Dorothy: Come on, Ma. Let's go.
Rose: What do you think she's gonna do?
Dorothy: I think she's gonna sell. It's just too much money.
Rose: Oh, no. Blanche is too sentimental. I think she's gonna stay.
Dorothy: What do you think, Ma? Ma!
Sophia: Quiet. [on the phone] Oh, this is just the operator. Your phone is working fine.
Dorothy: Ma, what did you hear? You're never gonna believe what happened.
Blanche: You are never gonna believe what happened. Yakamora decided not to buy the house.
Rose: What happened?
Blanche: Well, he went on a shopping spree and he spent all his money. He bought a department store in Fort Lauderdale and a condominium in Orlando, a baseball team in Tampa, and I think one of the Landers sisters.

Quote from Blanche

Rose: But what were you gonna tell him? What if he hadn't backed out?
Blanche: What difference does that make now? The important thing is we're staying together.
Dorothy: You were gonna sell, weren't you?
Blanche: Damn straight. But I was not gonna let it break us up. We are staying together. I don't care what happens. We are family. We are a team.
Rose: Come on, everybody, group hug.
