  • Season 7, Episode 19.

    Decent episode. The women are enjoyable. Blanche is funny! She says that if people will dance with a corpse than they will dance with Dorothy. Haha! Bea Arthur isn't really such a bad singer. Neither is Rue McClanahan. Blanche is such a tramp, though. Very cool. "Is that a gun or are you just happy to see me?" The man pulled out a gun. LMAO! Blanche wanted to sing on Sundays because of the way the men at the bar act. Hehe. Not one of the best episodes of the season, but it was nonetheless very, very enjoyable! Not surprising from The Golden Girls...moreless
  • Tired of watching Dorothy waste her time, Blanche takes her to the local bar. But it is Blanche who is in for a surprise when Dorothy becomes very popular with the men.moreless

    Good episode which contains a very funny scene with Blanche trying to take the spotlight away from Dorothy, but fails miserably. As Dorothy becomes more popular with the men, Blanche becomes more frustrated. In the end, Blanche admits her insecurities and that she is indeed jealous of Dorothy. Dorothy overcomes her insecurities as well, as we watch her become more self-confident. The two eventually agree to visit the bar on separate nights and to end that night singing a duet. However, Blanche still enjoys the spotlight because she picks a song that Dorothy says she does not know the words to.moreless
