  • I like this episode because...

    It's just fantastic. Dorothy is feeling tired all of the time and doesn't know why. She visits many different doctors and they all tell her the same thing. That there is nothing wrong with her and it is all in her head. She knows that isn't true and continues to visit more and more specialists. Blanche, on the other hand , has decided she is going to write a novl. That ends with hilarious results. This has to be one of my favorite episodes.
  • Poor Dorothy

    Damn doctor didn't believe what Dorothy told them. Those damn doctors are just so stupid.
  • Dorothy is sure about there being something physically wrong with her. She is tired and sick all of the time; Blanche decides to let her creative juices flow and begins to write a romance novel.

    This to me is the funniest episode ever done by the Golden Girls. Well, these two episodes. There is a continuance of the first episode. In this one, Blanche comes up with the great idea to write a romance novel. Who would have more and better experience than her, right? Well, she might have a lot of experience but it doesn't pay off in these episodes. As much as she tries she can't come up with anything. Meanwhile, Dorothy is feeling rundown and sick all the time, and dispite all many doctors as she goes to, she cannot find a single reason or diagnosis for her problems. She decides to go to New York to see a special doctor, and invites Rose, of all the people in the world, to go with her. Absolutely hilarious episode, especially the next one.
