Blanche: Well, I should've known I couldn't trust you, that all that "Let's be sisters" stuff was just a bunch of bull! You had no right to use my life for your book, to twist facts so that beautiful, sacred love became so much tawdry trash! I earned that "A" in History! For the first time in my life, I am ashamed to be a Hollingsworth. Vixen: Story of a Woman is nothing but a vulgar collection of perverse sexual acts that are sheer and utter FILTH!


*Everyone in the store rushes the table and begins grabbing copies of the book. Magda and Sophia have a mini-wrestling match until Sophia yanks it away, and Magda swats her arm with her purse as she retreats*

Dorothy: What are you doing shooting - are you crazy?!
Rose: I heard a noise, I thought it was robbers.
Sophia: I lived eighty, eighty-one years; I survived two world wars, pneumonia, a stroke and two operations. One night I'll belch, and Stable Mabel here will blow my head off!


Rose: They were probably looking for drugs.

Dorothy: We have Maalox and estrogen. Now how many junkies have gas and hot flashes?

Dorothy: "Should I? Oh what the hell, Rose what is Gowhackanoggin?" 

Rose: "It's a lot like baseball. Except, instead of hitting a ball, you whack yourself in the head"


It wasn't until I read this that I realized that Rose was saying "go whack a noggin."


I assumed it was just supposed to be an amusing collection of Scandinavian-esque sounds, like vertubenfluben.

Rose has a towel over her face and Blanche is ready to show Rose how "Blanche's beauty treatment" is gonna make her feel like a new woman. Dorothy comes in the kitchen and stands behind Rose. Rose takes the towel off and Blanche holds up a mirror.

Rose: Oh my god, I look horrible! Oh Dorothy it's you.

...This is my absolute favorite...and something I quote myself with my compact mirror and whoever's behind me all the time...lol.

Dorothy: "I understand, wait a couple of years and Medicare will pay for it."

Sophia: "Why wait, have it now and The Enquirer will pay for it."

Rose That's the way it was with thor. Our pet lamb. From when he was first separated from his mother, he wouldn't eat, sleep, or frolic with the other sheep.
Dorothy You're slipping into verse, rose. Keep it simple.
Rose Daddy got the idea of taking this old inner tube, wrapping it in wool, and putting it next to thor's bed. We named it brunhilda, and it did the trick. Thor thought it was his mother. He began eating, ..
Dorothy Frolicking.
Blanche Frolicking.
Rose Yes. Then one day, thor got a little playful and accidentally bit brunhilda.The poor little guy stood there watching his mother deflate before his very eyes. He was never the same. Sure, once in a while he'd baa at the back tires of a parked car. For the most part, he kept to himself.
Dorothy I see your point.
Rose You do?
Blanche Who cares?
Dorothy You want to hear the sequel?

Guy: "Okay everybody, please take a seat. There's not much to explain, the questions we selected will test your general knowledge. It's not an easy exam, history tells us that only ten percent of you will score high enough to be asked back."

Blanche: "Wow ten percent, only one out of five."


Blanche: "Dorothy, where are the Ural Mountains?"

You know, it didn't occur to me until now that they actually did have some pretty substantial opiate painkillers. (What with this episode coming before the one where Rose's substance abuse issues are revealed.)

Blanche: [having kicked Dorothy out of the Elvis club] Well I... I hope you're not too upset over this, Dorothy.

Dorothy: ...I've just been thrown out of an unauthorized Elvis-fan-club... I'll try to pick up the pieces and go on with my life... I mean there must be a support group for people like me.
