"A man has so much more to offer, Dorothy, ya know what I mean?"

"Yeah, I found that out in the third grade when Mark Perper was running for class president."

"What does that have to do with it?"

"Blanche, please! I am in no mood to hear about the endless parade of sexual encounters you have had up and down the Florida coastline, with nothing but this towel between your hot flesh and the cold, wet sand!"


This reminds me of:


Dorothy: "Okay, Blanche, but remember, I’m very vulnerable now, and in no mood to hear a story about you and some yahoo cracker with four first names pawing at each other under a magnolia tree!"


Blanche: "Well, sorry, Dorothy. We can’t all come from places as socially acceptable as Brooklyn."

Loved the way Rue/Blanche delivered her lines. Especially when Blanche got all hot and bothered over something.

Rose: Oh, there's nothing like Christmas in Minnesota.

Dorothy: Unless it's Christmas in New York. A light snow falling over Fifth Avenue...ice skaters at Rockefeller Center...Santas on every street corner...

Blanche w/eyes bugging out: Really?

"Afternoon, Dorothy. My, don't you look lovely today."


"Why, thank you. Oh, and don't you look beautiful, vivacious, exquisite, and, uh...let's see...breathtaking?"


"Dorothy, at some point I'm going to have to start questioning your sincerity. When we get to that point, I'll let you know."

“Well, sometimes you get yourself a really good looking salesman and you try to pretend you don’t notice his hands caressing your calf as he tries to keep his mind on shoes but all the time he’s thinking ‘Dare I peek?  Dare I look more?  Dare I look where no eyes have looked before?’ Then as he kneels there before you, little beads of perspiration breaking out on his forehead, his breath coming shorter and quicker he ever so gently slips the supple leather . . . on your quivering foot . . . and you achieve a perfect fit.  COME ON OLD WOMAN, WE NEED SHOES NOW!!!”

Dorothy: Wooooooooo!



I always did love the way Bea said this.


One of my all-time favorite quotes from this show:


"Rose, it doesn't matter what you do, you're never gonna please your parents. They're just gonna nag you and nag you and nag you until you wanna choke them, but you don't because you're in a hospital with resuscitating equipment!"

Reference to Bea's wonderful way of saying things and a quote containing "it doesn't matter" took me immediately to this:


"And, he's still interested."

"In what?"

"Rose, if you have to ask, it does not matter anymore."

Dorothy: I'm so glad my date with Barry is tomorrow. The fat won't have time to show. It always takes a few days.

Rose: Where does it go in the meantime?

Dorothy: To Connecticut! How should I know where it goes?

Dorothy: Rose, I am not in denial.


Rose: Yes, you are. You're just denying you're in denial.


Dorothy: Rose, honey, I am not denying I'm in denial.


Rose: If you're not denying you're in denial, then you're in denial.


Dorothy: Look, fluffhead. Why should I deny being in denial? I never said I was in denial, YOU are the one who said I was in denial, and don't you deny it.

Blanche: "Good luck and try not to overdo it."

Dorothy: "Blanche, what is that suppose to mean?"
Blanche: "Oh nothing, it's just that these things can be a little strenuous for a woman of your years."

Dorothy: "Who am I, Mamie Eisenhower? I can last just as long as you."

Blanche: "Dorothy please, I think I have a little more endurance than you."

Dorothy: "Blanche, we're not dancing on our backs."

Blanche: "You take that back."

Dorothy: "I will not! You just implied I was an old lady."

Blanche: "Well honey I didn't mean to imply, I meant to say it flat out."


Dorothy: "Listen, Daisy. I don't like being intimidated, I don't like being threatened, and frankly, kid, I don't like you! I'm not going to buy you anything, and I'm going to call your folks and let them know what you're doing. Then I'm going to call the School for Bad Girls, and they will come and pick you up, and put you in a sack, and take you away, and you will never eat ice cream or play jump rope again!"

Daisy: "Get real grandma!"


Daisy: "You see this water pistol, it's loaded with red ink!"


Rose: "I can't believe we're going to know the true age of Blanche Deveraux." [looks at document] "Deleted by authority of the governor."


Dorothy: "Marguerite we have to tell you something."

Blanche: "But before we do I just like to let you know that Tootie was my favorite on The Facts of Life."


Blanche: "Rose, what was your first impression of me?"

Rose: "I thought you wore too much makeup and were a slut. [Gets her things] "But I was wrong you don't wear too much makeup."


Blanche: "It's when you use a phrase to mean something else. Like when I say men are blinded by my beauty, they're not really blinded. They get their sight back in a day or two."


Blanche: "Barbara, I picked up your first novel the other day."

Barbara: "Ah yes, 'So Dark the Waves on Biscayne Bay'. I've grown so much as a writer since then."

Blanche: "I should hope so."

Dorothy: "Blanche."

Barbara: "No it's alright. Did you have a problem with my book dear?"

Blanche: "Yes, as a matter of fact I did, all those waves. Big waves, little waves, rolling in, page after page. I had to take a dramamine to get through chapter three."


Dorothy to Barbara: "Let me spell it out for you. Go to Hell."


Blanche: "He told me his wife died years ago."

Woman: "Oh he did." [talks to her husband behind hospital curtain] "You louse! You crumb! This is who you're cheating with now?! A woman in her sixties!"


Dorothy: "Rose, what about that guy you dated last Summer? The one who played Goofy at Disney World."

Rose: "I remember the passion, yes."

Dorothy: "Do you know why it didn't work out?"

Rose: "It just didn't."

Dorothy: "Yea, but do you remember why?"

Rose: "I don't wanna talk about it."

Blanche: "Rose, we're all adults, there's nothing to be ashamed of."

Rose: "He took off the Goofy head."

Dorothy: "He took off the Goofy head. See, that's not so bad." [Dorothy looks at Blanche and crosses her eyes]


Madam Zelda: "Move in this house and you'll die an agonizing death."


Blanche & Rose want to see the dress Dorothy purchased.

Dorothy: "Okay, but I'll warn you it's very simple. [Dorothy shows them the dress] "What do you think?"

Blanche: "I think I'm your best friend, so let's change the subject."

Rose: "It's perfect, it's exactly what I would have brought."

Dorothy: "That settles it, it goes back tomorrow."


Rose: "Cooking?"

Dorothy: "No Rose, I'm developing pictures from the Magellan Space Program."
