    Dorothy: The Great Herring War? Rose: Between the Lindstroms and the Johannsens. Dorothy: Oh, THAT Great Herring War. Rose: Well, I'm here if you want to pick my brain. Dorothy: Thank you Rose, but maybe we should let it heal first

    Rose: You... you... you rude person. Dorothy: Go easy on him, Rose.
    Sophia: And what will I do when every other old lady on the block is watching The Cosby Show? Dorothy: Well, ma, I guess you can sit on the new driveway and hope an amusing black family comes along.

    hi everyone. I'm desperately searching for a quote. I'm not quite sure, but I think Dorothy says "What is this, Blanche? The Oprah Winfrey show?"
    Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere. Maybe you know it and can tell me from which episode it is. Thanks a lot.

    Dorothy is my favorite.

    Rose: Can i ask a dumb question?
    Dorothy: Like no one else.

    Blanche: Since when do you care how you look?
    Dorothy: I think it started when i came down from the bell tower and had my hump fixed!

    Dorothy: Get back here, you deceitful little Sicilian gecko!
    Sophia: I wuv you.
    Dorothy: Too wittle, too wate!

    My favorite's are the Shady Pines ones. I love them.

    Blanch says something(I cant remember) So Dorthy holds out a pice of bread shoves it in Sophia's mouth and says "Bread Mom" Then Blanch says something else and Dorthy grabs Sophia's mouth and says "Chew it carefully Mom, Like they taught you to a Shady Pines"

    "Shady pines Ma"

    Of the insults between Dorothy and Sophia, I'm particularly fond of 'Swamp Insect!'

    Leonard (their neighbor): Listen, ladies, if there's anything that I can do for you to improve our relationship, I'd be happy to oblige.

    Dorothy: There is one small thing. In the morning, when you go out in your robe to pick up the newspaper... wear your shorts.

    You have more wrinkles, I have more wrinkles, so has Blanche.
    (Blanche gasps insulted)
    And so you're a little thicker around the middle -- so is Blanche.
    (Blanche is mortified)

    I have two. The first one is when Stan is staying with them due to an injury or something... and then he makes this huge speech about how he doesn't want to go home cos he is scared and such, to which Dorothy replies:

    "Stanley, that is the first time you have opened up to me like that... and poured out such crap!"

    The second is when Dorothy and Rose are making a song about Miami. Rose is at the piano and begins to sing, "Miami is nice, so I'll say it twice, Miami is nice, Miami is nice". Dorothy then points out that "Miami is nice" is said 3 times. The following conversation ensues.

    Rose: Well how about this: "Miami is nice, so I'll say it thrice"
    Dorothy: Thrice, Rose?!
    Rose: It's a word!
    Dorothy: So is intra-uterine, but it doesn't belong in a song.

    My two faves (in order):
    1.  When Dorothy's friend Jean (who is a lesbian) visits and Dorothy and Sophia tell Blanche.
    Blanche:  But isn't Danny Thomas one?Dorothy:  Not Lebaneze, Blanche, lesbian.Blanche:  Lesbian, lesbian, (gasp) LEZZBIEN....
    2.  When the girls are attempting to buy condoms at the store and Rose can't get the point.
    Dorothy (loudly):  Condoms, Rose; Condoms, Condoms, Condoms!!

    Delivery Man: Flowers for Blanche Devereaux? (pronounces it Deveruckks)

    Dorothy: Devereaux, it's only pronounced "Deverucks" in limericks.

    This is following on from blizair09's one.

    (They're making up a song about Miami)

    Dorothy: Who the hell says thrice, Rose?
    Rose: It's a word!
    Dorothy: So is intrauterine... but it doesn't belong in a song.


    LOL I love that line! It is the one I'll remember to the grave.

    You guys are killin' me here!

    Some great quotes in this thread! Here's mine...

    (talking about Sophia)

    Blanche: She walked in on me and William last night. I could have fallen off my headboard and chipped a tooth. Rose: You think that's bad? She came into my room while Albert and I were reenacting the plank-walking scene from "Peter Pan".Dorothy: What the hell goes on in this house at night?

    Rose: Oh, come on, Dorothy, that balloon man couldn't have been that terrible.
    Dorothy: I got the feeling I was the man's first date that wasn't inflatable.

    Dorothy: When a 22-year-old girl marries a man who's 80, chances are she is not after his body.

    Dorothy: It's wonderful dating in Miami. Every single man under eighty sells cocaine.

    Hee hee!

    When Dorothy is told she can no longer be part of the Elvis Fan Club for making fun of the King:

    Dorothy (feigning sadness): I've just been kicked out of an unauthorized Elvis fan club. I'll try to pick up the pieces and move on. I mean, there must be a support group out there somewhere for people like me.

    I think that all of Dorothy's comebacks are hilarious. Especially the ones that are bashing Rose's stupidity.
