  • blanche gets engaged and sophia moves in

    i loved this episode
    its so funny
    the comic relief dorothy and rose added just killed me.
    'it was her first flight, they said on arrival give the passengers a lei, she got confused'
    I don't think that there ever was a funnier line in the show
    Sophia moves in and that scene is fantastic. Estelle played sophia perfectly. So many one liners. 'Do you know what that does to hearts that only beat a few times a week'
    Sussan harris created 4 characters that just worked. They clicked. There really has never been a show were the lead characters have all exelled in the way they did. Never did you get the feel one outshone the other
