Martha: I'm going to have the shrimp cocktail, cream of mushroom soup, asparagus in hollandaise sauce, and the filet mignon.
Sophia: I like cholesterol as much as the next guy, but you're never going to get blood to your feet again.
Dorothy: Blanche, the only thing here that's forty-ish is your hairdo.
Dorothy: What's his temperature, Blanche?
Blanche: I can't tell, I think my eyes are tired.
Dorothy: Your eyes are old. When are you going to admit that you need glasses?
Blanche: I don't need glasses, my mama didn't need glasses till the day she died, then it seemed silly.
Dorothy: WHAT is his temperature, Blanche?
Blanche: I can't tell, even with perfectly good eyes nobody can ever read these things.
Rose: (halfway across the room) Oh my God it's 103.
Martha: I'm not like you. You live with friends and family, holidays and warmth. I hear the silence. Sophia: We'll talk. We'll talk all the time. You can come over Thanksgiving, Christmas, every Friday night. I might not be there, but you could always talk to Rose.
Martha: I don't know what to do.
Sophia: That's the point, if you're not sure, you can't change your mind tomorrow. You wanted me to be here for your death, how about letting me be here for your life?
Martha: Like a friend?
Sophia: Like a best friend.
(Sophia and Martha enter the kitchen in black dresses)
Dorothy: Hi, Ma. Hi, Martha. Where've you been?
Sophia: I'll give you a hint. The guest of honor had lipstick on her teeth and didn't give a damn.
Sophia: Martha wants to commit suicide and she wants me to be there with her.
Blanche: And what did you say?
Sophia: I said I'd think about it. You can't say no to someone who pops for a $75 dinner...tell them Blanche.
Dorothy: You see that Ma? You kill someone, you become a Rose story. Is this what you want?
Sophia: I'll think about me later. I've got to do this. Goodnight Pussycat.
(after seeing the girls dance and sing "Mr. Sandman" to put the baby to sleep)
Sophia: Boy, you guys really stink.
