    Dorothy and Blanche competing over Rose's birthday presents was pretty hilarious. Dorothy's present was so sweet! Blanche gives Rose a detective for her birthday! To spy on Miles! Sophia sells Dorothy's ticket for the Papal Mass... Haha! She is doing a great thing, trying to get the Pope to bless her friend in the hospital. Blanche paid the detective with nature's credit card! Dorothy said she never leaves home without it! Sophia wants to get into the Bible! Dorothy said, "Ma, the Bible is a done deal!" Miles is having surgery, which Rose thinks is serious. Sophia loses the Pope's ring! Haha, great episode!moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The ring Sophia has that she got from the pope has a large red jem in the middle.

    • When Miles asks Rose if she's ever made love outdoors, Rose says "just once" and proceeds to tell a story about Mt. Pushover in St. Olaf, which was a make-out point. However, in another episode Rose tells of dressing up as a sandwich in a St. Olaf parade with Charlie, forgetting to put the meat in between them, and then conceiving Kirsten.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Dorothy: (to Blanche, after finding out Blanche hired a detective for Rose) A detective? You're giving the gift of suspicion?

    • Blanche: Rose, has Miles started wearing bikini underwear?
      Rose: Actually, Miles did buy some bikinis - but just the bottoms.

    • (Sophia comes through the door just as Miles is walking out)
      Sophia: Miles, I'm glad you're here, I need to talk to you.
      Miles: Later.
      (Rose walks through the house and out the door)
      Sophia: Rose, this is really important.
      Rose: Maybe later, Sophia.
      (Dorothy comes out of the kitchen and starts to go in the hall)
      Sophia: Dorothy, I can't breathe!
      Dorothy: Not now, Ma! (pauses) Alright, but this better be important.
      Sophia: It depends. How important is ... the Pope's ring?
      Dorothy: (looking at ring) Alright, Ma, squirt me in the face and get it over with.

    • Dorothy: Ma, you stole the Pope's ring?
      Sophia: It slipped off. For God's representative on earth, he sure has sweaty palms.

    • Blanche: I paid with nature's credit card.
      Dorothy: You never leave home without it.

    • Sophia: This may be my shot at getting into the Bible!
      Dorothy: The Bible's a done deal.

    • Rose: I was an experiment at a college once, they tripled my IQ. For three days I was another Einstein, then they pulled the IV.
      Miles: Rose what was in that IV?
      Rose: Smart juice I guess.

    • (Sophia is in bathroom, Rose knocks)
      Rose: Sophia, guess who's here, the Pope, the Pope is here.
      Sophia: Oh, I've been waiting for this moment, my whole life!
      Rose: Oh, okay, I won't disturb you.

    • Sophia: (to Dorothy) That's the difference between you and me, Pussycat. I believe in miracles.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • When Sophia has the Pope's ring, and waves her arm over a glass of water, saying "Wine!", this is a subtle allusion to the first miracle of Jesus Christ. Jesus' first miracle was turning water into wine.
