    • Susan Dodd: So good to see you again, Blanche! (to Clayton) And who have we here? Hello, I'm Susan Dodd.
      Clayton: I'm Clayton. Blanche's brother. And this is Doug. He's my-

    • Clayton: I wanted you to meet Doug for a very important reason.
      Blanche: Why?
      Clayton: Blanche, we're getting married.
      Rose: Well, that's impossible, Clayton! Brother's can't marry sisters! Oh, that's right. You're from the south.
      Dorothy: Blanche and Clayton aren't getting married, you airhead! Clayton and Doug are.
      Rose: Oh. (realizes) Oh! (confused) Oh?!

    • Rose: Oh!... Well, what's a policeman doing bringing fares from the airport? I know! I bet you do undercover work!
      Sophia: And I'll bet he does it damn well.
      Dorothy: Heh, heh, heh. You'll have to excuse my mother. She, uh, survived a slight stroke which left her, if I can be frank, a complete burden.

    • Sophia: Why did you marry George?
      Blanche: We loved each other, we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together, we wanted everybody to know.
      Sophia: That's what Clayton and Doug want too, everybody wants someone to grow old with, and shouldn't everyone have that chance?
      Blanche: I think I get what you're saying, Sophia.
      Sophia: I don't think you do, Blanche, will you marry me?

    • Clayton: I'd do anything for Doug...and he'd bend over backwards for me.

    • Doug: And he snores.
      Blanche: That'll just be our little secret.
      (as the three embrace in a hug, we; fade out, end of show).

    • Blanche: I don't mind Clayton being homosexual, I just don't like him dating men!
      Dorothy: You haven't quite grasped the concept of this gay thing, have you?
      Blanche: Well there must be homosexuals that date women.
      Sophia: Yeah, they're called lesbians.

    • Sophia: So Butch, Sundance, who gets to throw the bouquet?

    • Blanche: What will the neighbors think if they see two men in my bedroom?
      Sophia: They'll think it's Tuesday.
