  • Rose's response ro the English Hirn...........

    Rose's funniest line of the whole series was when, she asked Mile's daughter, Caroline, what instrument she played ??the English horn.... Rose's response was the best audience
  • I hate Miles's daughter

    What a fucking bitch. That stupid slut Caroline is getting on my last nerve. Ugly ***.
  • 'You can tell a lot about a man just by the way they drive' 'You know thats true. Sometimes stan couldn't even get the key into the ignition'

    This episode was wonderful because it had three plots going on simultaneously, sometimes that doesn't happen often in the show. They skipped from Blanche, to Rose, to Dorothy and Sophia. Something i liked.

    Blanche is so funny in this episode. She places an ad in the paper that she has a car for sale (which she doesn't) to attract men. The only problem for her is that men actually want to by it, something she didn't expect to happen. Classic

    Rose meets Miles' daughter who tells Rose to stay away from Miles because it had only been a year since his wife died. The social security made a mistake and sophia had been receiving thousand's of dollars from the US government. Something that dorothy is very shocked about when she finds out. A wonderful episode. Sophia 'The car is haunted. I Should know i rode in it. 'You look fine'

    Sophia ' I'm 27 years old'moreless

    This was an interesting episode.However for this episode it left me an lot of questioned.How did Miles daughter knew that he was in Miami.Cause in the witness protection.You can't tell anyone else where you are atmoreless
  • Rose prepares for meeting Miles\\\' daughter for the first time, but she suggests that Rose stay away from him. Meanwhile, Blanche pretends to be selling a car in hopes of attracting men, but the men are more interested in the car than Blanche.moreless

    Triple Play is another good episode of the series. Miles proves his dedication to Rose by telling his daughter she was wrong. Blanche says she\\\'ll fix the problem with Miles only if Dorothy can get rid of the men wanting the car. All but one of the men leave, and interestingly, the remaining man would rather date Dorothy. Blanche, in a move that was very much true to character, tells Dorothy to take the mercedes and then calls the police to report it stolen. This is where the episode ends. It is never said what happens to Dorothy, but the audience can definitely assume that she got her due.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Not only are we led to believe that Arnie (Season 1) and Miles (subsequent seasons) are different people, but Caroline says that it has only been a year since her mother died.  So when Rose went away on a cruise with "Arnie" in Season 1, his wife would have still been alive (4 seasons of the show had passed) so Rose would have been the other woman at that point.

    • How is it that Miles' daughter can visit and talk about her late mother when in a later episode it's revealed that Miles is in the witness protection program, and is supposed to cut off contact with his family?
