Rose: (about her mother) How could she talk to me like that? I'm only trying to help her!
Dorothy: Rose, can I talk to you from one daughter to another? When we were teenagers, do you remember what we wanted most from our mothers?
Rose: A training bra?
Dorothy: No. What we wanted most was to be treated like adults--then, as we get older, we turn around and treat our mothers like little girls. Honey, all your mother wants is to be treated like a woman. Is that asking too much?
