Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • In season three Sophia also mentions another friend, Gladys Weinstock. It's hard to believe she has two friends, both named Weinstock.

    • Sophia mentions that she and Esther Weinstock grew up together. Sophia grew up in Sicily. It's hard to believe that they came to America together.

    • Quentin Tarantino, then unknown, makes an appearance on The Golden Girls as an Elvis impersonator in the first half of this two part episode.

    • Max claims that after he took the blame for gambling all the money away, that Sal felt so guilty he never gambled again. But in "All Bets are Off", Sophia claims he was a gambler until the end, in fact she said his last words were "Ten bucks says I don't need this oxygen tank."

    • Rose asked Dorothy how does it feel when you faint she never did it before that's not true because in the second season episode, "End of the Curse" she fainted when she thought Blanche was pregant

  • QUOTES (8)

    • (after seeing all the Elvis impersonators at the wedding)
      Rose: Either I mixed the Elvis list with the wedding list or everyone in Max's family appeared on the Ed Sullivan show.

    • Rose: And Sophia, I wanna offer you a traditional Scandinavian wedding blessing. Gerflecterflaffen, fleffenflerven, ferfectaflingen, verflaffen!
      Sophia: I'm really touched. I'm also soaking wet.

    • Dorothy: (feigning sadness after Blanche tells her she's out of their fan club for insulting The King) I've just been kicked out of an unauthorized Elvis fan club. I'll try to pick up the pieces and move on. I mean, there must be a support group out there somewhere for people like me.

    • Dorothy: ...And if you see Max, I don't want you making another scene - like you did at the funeral!
      Sophia: Scene? What scene? It's not my fault the klutz tripped over my foot and nearly fell into an open grave!
      Dorothy: You didn't have to yell 'start shovelling boys!' as he tried to get up.

    • Blanche: But before we adjourn our secretary has a real special surprise. A Genuine Elvis artifact.
      Rose: It's a partially eaten pork chop.
      Dorothy: This has to be a fake, I mean, Elvis would never have left this much meat on a pork chop.

    • Dorothy: Ma, what is going on here?
      Sophia: Afterglow.

    • Blanche: Do you know what I hate doing most after a party?
      Rose: Trying to find your underwear in the big pile?
      Blanche: NO, you twit! Cleaning up the dirty dishes!

    • Dorothy: Ma, You can't put a Sicilian curse on your eldest daughter if the mother of the man you are marrying is under 5'7. You're not the only one with Aunt Regina's phone number!
      Sophia: Damn MCI!
