      Dorothy: I swear he must have slipped me something.

      Sophia: Apparently!

    • Blanche: What does one wear to a sperm bank?
      Dorothy: Something attractive and rubber.

    • Rose: You know, I've read that you can even buy the sperm of Nobel Prize winners. Or is it, Star Search winners?
      Blanche: Buy? Well, sperm used to be free, it was all over the place!

    • Rebecca: Well, Mama, I'm gonna do this whether you like it or not.
      Blanche: Oh... oh, I see, missy, so this is the thanks I get for all those cold nights when you were a baby crying, and I'd have to get up out of bed and grope around in the dark for my slippers and robe, and make my way all the way downstairs, and... scream for the governess?

    • Dorothy: What do you want me to do, take you to court, have you declared incompetent?
      Sophia: I'm not incompetent, once when I laughed too hard, I had a little accident.

    • Blanche: At least what we all did was natural.
      Sophia: Well, not all of it...there is some other stuff, but I probably shouldn't tell you till you're 70.

    • Blanche: My daughter is going to have a baby by artificial insemination.
      (The girls stare at her)

      (The girls continue to stare)
      Blanche: I'm just being silly aren't I?
      (The girls continue to stare)
      Blanche: Well for God's sake, somebody say something.
      Rose: Ewwwwwww.
      Dorothy: Big help.
