    • Blanche: Y' know, being at her funeral today made me start thinking about how quiclky life can pass you by. Maybe I oughta do something more adventurous in my life. Dorothy: More adventurous! The Kama Sutra had to publish a supplement because of you!

    • Stationmaster: Y'all may think this sounds kinda silly, but we actually printed "Our trains leave early" right on the town seal. Rose: You have a town seal? Can he play a song on those little horns? Stationmaster: No, but he can balance a ball on his nose if you throw him a catfish first! Blanche: This is like the Twilight Zone. Somehow we got on a train that ended up inside Rose's mind.

    • Rose: Don't you want to try some of my chipped beef? Blanche: Oh...well...I was in the mood for something hot. Rose: Mine's hot! Blanche: I was in the mood for something spicy. Rose: Oh, mine's spicy! Sophia: She's looking for something that won't test her gag reflexes!

    • Rose: (in bed) Oh, darn, I forgot something! Blanche: Go in your pajamas!

    • Rose: (in bed with the three girls) There, now. That's not so bad. Blanche: Get your bunny nose out of my butt!

    Trivia (3)

    • We notice that in the flashback where the girls all get into Sophia's bed because it's so cold, they get into bed in the same order that they eventually pass away.

    • In one flashback scene the ladies are coming back from Edna McCarthy's funeral. Blanche said earlier in the season in "It's a Miserable Life" that she's only been to three funerals. This has to be one of them. Another being George, and one unknown. However, in Season Five when she gets her pacemaker, Blanche says she has never been to a funeral, and never intends to go to one.

    • When Blanche enters Sophia's room and asks if she can sleep with them because her bed has never been so cold, she mentions that it is a Saturday night. However, after all four are in bed together, Dorothy tells them to quiet down because she has to go to work early in the morning. As a teacher, school's are closed on Sunday, and there is no mention of her holding any other part-time job.
