    Sophia teaches the girl's to respect life, no matter how wretched it was

    By damanray, Apr 08, 2010

    When Rose loses her temper at mean old lady claxton she tells her to drop dead, which unfortunately for Rose, she does and then rose gets even more upset when its revealed claxton isn't going to have a funeral as she had no friends or family. What i enjoyed about this episode is its originality. The p fipher was such brillant writing that still has me laughing



    Blanche's story about faking her own death so that the town would pay for 'valuing my personality over my perfect body' is hilarious character development.



    What i like about the girls is that God isn't forgotten. He is discussed and affects the girls' decisions.



    I like the ending, that even though it seemed that claxton had no meaning in her life, Rose found a meaning and i was glad for hermoreless

    This episode reuses the same two rooms for upcoming episodes.

    By mastercherub, Nov 16, 2008

    Golden Girls is a very popular show. Many things do get revealed over time. I find it interesting how some of the places they go to, are reused in upcoming episodes. I am not talking, revisiting in the same episode, unless it is a 2-parter or it is an episode realating to another later in the series. I'm sure you know what I mean. The funeral home, where the girls pick out Mrs. Claxton's cascet is the same building where Michael and Lorraine have their wedding in the next season. Plus, the room where Mrs. Claxton's funeral is held is the same room for Fidel's funeral in season four. I find it interesting that they reuse the same buildings in future episodes.moreless

    Hey Puh-feiffer, how would you like a punch in your puh-face? (This episode rocks!)

    This episode is one of the best in the series. Frieda Claxton is hysterically funny even though she doesn't appear on screen very much. ("How can you hate a living thing?....I hate you!") I love the scene at the funeral home with Mr. Pffiefer... Sophia is so funny here! The best part of the episode is at the end when you think for a few moments that it's going to end with Frieda Claxton ending up having been a good person, and then you find out that her one "friend" was actually talking about someone else. I love the way that Dorothy says "WHO???" It cracks me up every single time. It's cool how Rose manages to bring 'meaning' to Frieda's life after all, although kind of in a pathetic way. Anyway it works. Love love love this episode.moreless
