  • Rose goes through a roller coaster of emotions

    The reason i loved this episode is because it flowed magnificently. Every scene works really well and thats why the golden girls is such a good show

    My favourite scene is the second scene were rose tells the story about uncle Sam

    Rose: I haven't felt this bad since i was rejected by uncle sam

    Blanche: Well honey if he was your uncle it wasn't mean to be..... Its not like he was your cousin were the relationship might have had a future

    Definitely one of rue mclanahan's best performances'

    Blanche's character was written at its best during Season 2 which is probably why she won the emmy

    Issac Newton... classic

    and the newton guy was like the binary opposite of the great man

    Another great season 2 installmentmoreless
  • Rose wants to meet Mr. Right.

    The guy Rose meets was pretty funny, however, I don't think that Blanche should have interfered. I didn't like the whole part of Rose locking herself in the bathroom, because even though Blanche and Dorothy were wrong she still should've understood that they did it because they cared. All in all, not a bad episode.
  • See how one fake love letter from an secret admeir can cause disaster.

    Rose decided to put her ad in the personal ad.In hopes that she would get an date.Of course finding out that she couldn't.Until she receives an mysterous letter from an guy called "Isacc Newton" which made her very happy.Dorthy was happy for her as well too.When she was gone.Blanche begin to confess that she was that wrote the letter.Which got Dorthy upset at her.Telling Blanche that it was wrong and what if Rose wants to go out with him stuff liked that.When Blanche mention that she will say that Isacc is off somewhere.Little did they know that Isacc Newton is really in the phone book.But Blanche and Dorthy relized that they hurt Rose's feeling.Even though they didn't mean it.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This seems to go against Rose's character. In season one Rose doesn't want to buy Blanche's car because it says "available", and it doesn't seem like Rose would place an ad like this, because essentially, putting an ad in a personal's column is basically telling guys you are available.

    • Rose references a cousin Arnold in this episode who evidently lives locally in Miami, but who is never seen nor heard from in any other epsiodes.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Blanche: Okay, let's get back to our dates! I want Howard to get me tipsy and take advantage of me!
      Dorothy: Blanche?
      Blanche: Huh?
      Dorothy: Howard is my date!

    • Rose: Is this your idea of some horrible joke?
      Isaac: No, I swear to you...I have no sense of humor.

    • Dorothy: Well we certainly can't let Rose go out with a guy who said yes to a date with a woman who just picked his name out of a phone book
      Blanche: You say that like nobody ever does it!

    • Rose: The worst thing about it was thinking someone really cared. Someone was actually interested in hearing about why I sometimes hate my job or why I like to eat my lunch in the park. It felt so nice to have someone.
      Dorothy: You do, Rose! You have us!
      Blanche: We're the ones who wrote those letters. And honey, we meant every word.

    • Isaac: What's this letter you keep talking about?
      Rose: I'm not talking about one letter, I'm talking about all the letters.
      Isaac: Of the alphabet?

    • Dorothy: (about the unreliable mailman) Next time you might try something a little more forceful than inviting him in for a Cafe Vienna and a warm bath.
      Blanche: The man was recovering from a hernia operation and was having trouble carrying his sack!

    • Blanche: (to Rose about dating) Have you given any thought to advertising?
      Rose: Oh, Blanche, I could never dress the way you do. Besides, I have to wear undies, not all my wool skirts are lined.
