It's National Cheesecake Day, which of course, reminds me of Golden Girls.
Some people are obsessed with Star Wars or they can't resist puppies or babies or Beanie Babies.
I'm obsessed with old people.
Some people seek wisdom from Yoda.
I seek it from Dorothy, Sophia, that lovable tramp Blanche and, of course, Rose.
I can't help myself. They're so cute and lovable and they say the darndest things.
1/ On courting -
Blanche: I can't believe you said that! Oh if I weren't a lady I'd deck you.
Dorothy: You try and I'll have you on your back so fast you'll think you're out on a date.
2/ On marriage -
Dorothy: When a 22-year-old girl marries a man who's 80, chances are she is not after his body.
3/ On weird relatives -
Rose: Now, I know no one wants to hear any of my stories right now...
Dorothy: That's always a safe bet, Rose.
Rose: ...but you need to hear about my cousin Ingmar. He was different. He used to do bird imitations.
Blanche: Well, what's wrong with that?
Rose: Well, let's just say you wouldn't want to park your car under their oak tree.
4/ On childhood -
Rose: Back where I come from, most people won't eat store-bought cake.
Dorothy: Rose, back where you come from, people live in windmills and make love to polka music.
Rose: Stop it, Dorothy. You're making me homesick!
5/ On Blanche's mind -
Contractor: Do you want it fast or do you want it good?
Sophia: Before you answer that, Blanche, the man's talking about a guest room.
6/ On fashion -
Blanche: Sophia, by placing this pearl necklace between my bosoms, does it make me look like I'm a sex-starved slut who is in need of a man to bed?
Blanche: Good, then pearl necklace it is.
7/ On future reality TV -
Blanche: Is that all you Italians know how to do? Scream and hit?
