    This was great since the beginning, when Sophia asks Dorothy how long ago the last time she had sex was. Sophia called Dorothy "Queen." Haha, I love her. She's such a funny 80-something year old. I can't believe Rose actually had sex a couple of weeks ago. But I guess she is only in her fifties, so it's OK. Blanche's outfit was unbelievable. Blanche's comment about not taking her breasts out in public... A lot... was hilarious. Blanche's acting is pretty bad, but Rue McClanahan is amazing. Blanche was pretty selfish for passing her granddaughter Aurora as her daughter, just to get a guy, but I still love her. Dorothy having the highest IQ in Brooklyn at 173 was pretty funny, as well as Rose's IQ of a burro.moreless

    • Rose: (responding to Sophia's decision to pass along the sacred family recipe to her) I'm the queen? I'm the queen!
      Dorothy: You're also the fool, so we're saving a lot on payroll.

    • Blanche: You know I'd love to spend the day with Oreo but...
      Rebecca: Aurora, Mama, Aurora.
      Blanche: Aurora, I have such a block against that name.

    • Sophia: Dorothy, you'll have to do the Dance of the Virgins by yourself.
      Dorothy: Oh come on, Ma.
      Sophia: You remember, it's just like the bunny hop except you have your legs crossed.
      Dorothy: Ma you're making that up!
      Sophia: I'm adding to it. Once a year the women of my village gathered for this festival, they danced, they laughed, they ate, it was a chance for mothers and daughters to be together. (to Rebecca) Don't do this to your mother, Rebecca, don't let your daughter grow up never knowing her grandma. I'm 85 and I'm still thankful for all the memories I have of my grandchildren.

    • Jason: (acting for Taming of the Shrew) Come, sit on me!
      Blanche: (breaking part) Ooh! (resumes part) Asses were made for that and so were you.
      Jason: Women were made for childbearing and so were you.

    • Sophia: When was the last time you had sex?
      Dorothy: Ma, that's a very personal question!
      Sophia: That long, eh?

    • Blanche: Aurora, I just hate that name, why couldn't you have named her something more colorful, more southern, more classy?
      Rebecca: Sorry, Blanche. I know you don't like the name and I know you think I'm bringing her up wrong.
      Blanche: It's not that, I just wish you wouldn't feed her when you come see me at the museum, do you see me taking my breast out in public...a lot?

    • Rebecca: (seeing Blanche's costume for The Taming of the Shrew) Look at you, and you used to yell at me for wearing halter tops.

    • Dorothy: And how is little Aurora this morning?
      Rebecca: She was a very good girl this morning, just smiling and smiling and smiling. I know that sometimes it's just gas, but she looks so cute.
      (Sophia pulls on Dorothy's shirt, Dorothy turns around, Sophia grins)
      Dorothy: It's not cute once you hit 80, Ma.

    • Jason: (to Blanche while holding her grandaughter) Isn't she the most beautiful mother you ever seen?
      Sophia: Grand, just grand.

    • Director: NEXT!
      Blanche: Please...I've waited my whole life for this part.
      Director: Long wait.
