  • Quotes (7)

    • Blanche: Rose? Rose! I just got a pledge for 50 dollars if you will stop singin'. Sophia: (on telephone) That's right, 50 bucks if she stops singing, and I'll throw in another 50 if you slam the piano lid on her fingers.

    • Blanche: Well, let me tell you something, mister. It doesn't matter how many of our acts have shown up. It doesn't matter how many hours of air time we have to fill. There is only one thing that matters here. The indomitable devotion that Rose and I have in our hearts for that windmill! It's a devotion for that windmill, it's a love for that windmill, and as God is our witness, we are going to save that windmill! Rose: It's a lighthouse, Blanche.

    • Sophia: I'm sorry about the stick. Doorthy: What stick? Sophia: The stick, the one with a sock on it with buttons for the eyes. Dorothy: You mean Scout? You know where Scout is?

    • Angelo: You offer Stan to Gloria, but Stan is not a stick, he's not a rubber ball, he's not a Betsy Wetsy, he's a man.

    • Sophia: Whenever Dorothy got tired of one of her toys and Gloria took it, Dorothy would get interested in it again and want it back. I can still remember her screaming, "Gloria took my stick! Gloria took my stick!" Angelo: Boy, we come from a poor family!

    • This episode originally aired in a one-hour block with its second part but is seen syndicated in two separate blocks.

    • This episode is the last time we ever see Dorothy's sister, Gloria Petrillo.

    Trivia (2)

    • Blanche reveals her phone number is 555-E-A-S-Y. That would make her phone number 555-3279.

    • This is the second time Gloria visits Dorothy and Sophia. She was played by a different actress, Doris Belack. In her first appearance, The Custody Battle, she was quite a refined woman. The Gloria here is quite different (even if she is "flat broke" now).
