  • What is "hilarious?"

    Though it would be difficult to choose a favorite episode of The Golden Girls, this one definitely stands out as one of the top for its hilarity. One of the funniest scenes is the one in which Dorothy falls asleep and dreams she is at the Jeopardy studio competing against Rose, along with a dumb jock. The categories are all related to farming and babes. Dorothy finds that she is losing to her dim-witted best friend and a guy who doesn't read. In exasperation she exclaims about Rose, "This woman is an Idiot!" To which the moderator responds, "Oh, really? SHE didn't get knocked up in high school." Simply riotous. The dream then ends with Dorothy losing to Rose in Final Jeopardy. Rose's response to the question, "Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?" is "Cary Grant" and they accept her answer over Dorothy's (Ulysses S. Grant). Dorothy's overzealous nature costs her a spot on the game show, as the recruiter explains that Americans "wouldn't route for" her. Sophia reminds her of a similar situation when Dorothy was little and beat the kids so badly at the Spelling Bee that no one invited her to their parties.
