    • (Blanche shows of Diamond necklace of hers.)
      Blanche: This necklace is a priceless heirloom. It belonged to my grammy. I've only worn it three times in my whole life, and each occasion marked the beginning of a passionate romance. And tonight I've decided to wear it with clothes.

    • Blanche: All your dreams can come true Dorothy, if you just believe!
      Dorothy: (clapping hands excitedly) Oh, I do believe! I do believe in sluts!

    • Rose: Dorothy, you're my best friend. Would you be my maid of honor?
      Dorothy: Wait, I won't have to wear horns and one of those metal brassieres will I?
      Rose: Oh, no Dorothy! I'm the one who's getting married.

    • Blanche: Derek, before we go any further, I need to know something. Are the British as bad in bed as they say?

    • Sophia: Leap year...full moon...the curse!
