  • Quotes

    • Dorothy: (to Blanche) Everybody who's come has been too young, too pretty, too thin, it's like you want to be surrounded by women who have absolutely no sex appeal.
      Rose: You think we're dogs, don't you?
      (the bark bell sounds)
      Blanche: Now that's scary.

    • Dorothy: I was just wondering the other day 'why doesn't our doorbell bark?'
      Rose: Probably because we didn't have a bark bell.
      Dorothy: You really expect this to scare Myra away?
      Rose: Oh sure, look at the box, see the burglar running from the house?
      Dorothy: And he's saying 'YIKES!'
      (bell rings again, the dogs bark, Sophia runs out of the kitchen)
      Sophia: The dogs are on my trail again, through the river, run through the river.
      Dorothy: Ma, that's an alarm Rose put up to scare people away.
      Sophia: It'll never work.

    • Dorothy: You'll need 2 new roommates, Ma will be moving in with us.
      Sophia: No I won't.
      Dorothy: You can't afford to stay here alone.
      Sophia: Blanche is letting me keep my room and I have an interview at McDonald's today, if I can see over the counter, I'm their new fry girl.

    • Sophia: (to Stanley) If you hurt her again I'll make you miserable for the rest of my life, and if I lay off meat and dairy that could be as much as five years!

    • Rose: I had an outdoor wedding, February 12th I'll never forget...I had the most beautiful white flannel wedding dress, it even had feet sewn in.

    • Dorothy: (after the wedding falls apart) Oh this has always been one of my worst fears.
      Trudy: Having a wedding fall a part at the last minute
      Dorothy: No, going on my honeymoon with my mother.

    • Rose: The brain is a very powerful thing.
      Dorothy: Think of the 99% you don't use.

    • Sophia: I believe Rose has the capacity to kill.

    • Stanley: Dorothy, I vow to you that my love is pure.
      Dorothy: I do vow too.
      Stanley: I vow that my love is strong.
      Dorothy: I do vow too.
      Stanley: I vow that I will love no other.
      Dorothy: I do god Stanley, I feel like one of the Shirelles!

    • Rose: If you hold a bird gently, it'll stay. But if you squeeze the bird, its eyes will bug out.

    • Blanche: Okay honey, pencils down.
      Rose: I could've used a pencil?!
