  • Quotes (8)

    • Dorothy: (to Sophia, Blanche and Rose) Your friendship is something I never expected at this point in my life...and I couldn't have asked for a better surprise.

    • Stan: You're getting married, and you couldn't give an invitation to Stanley Zbornak, the man who gave you his name? Dorothy: I'm sorry, Stan, the list was alphabetical. The Zionists aren't speaking to me either.

    • Blanche: What makes you think the newlyweds will welcome you? Sophia: Say, there's a fly in the metamucil.

    • Sophia: (about Lucas) You know, I think he's just nuts enough to show up at the wedding tomorrow. Dorothy: You're a furry little gnome and we feed you too much.

    • Sophia: (walking down the aisle, thinking to herself) I can't believe it. My Dorothy's getting married. I think I'm gonna cry. (sneezes) Whoa! Misjudged that one! (a few minutes later in the pew, thinking to herself) Oh, great. Of all the times to feel a sneeze coming on. (starts crying) I'll be damned.

    Trivia (7)

    • All four cast members have appeared in every episode. The only other show to do this is Friends.

    • Dorothy says the final line of the series. She says "You will always be my sisters. Always."

    • At series end, Beatrice Arthur and Betty White are the only cast members who never had their title card changed in the opening credits. Rue's was updated in season's three which featured a scene from "Take Him, He's Mine, and five with a scene from "Sophia's Choice." Estelle's was updated in season five as well, with a shot from "Fiddler on the Ropes."

    • At the end Rose asks what they can say about seven years of fights, laughter and cheesecake. However, in Season Three's Three on a Couch, Dorothy tells the therapist they have been together five years, meaning Dorothy, Blanche and Rose lived together for 2 years before the series started. That would mean, by this episode, with the exception of Sophia, the girls have been together for nine years.

    • Dorothy gets married to Lucas in a church. This is actually forbidden in Roman Catholicism, since Dorothy and Stan got a divorce.
