The Golden Girls: That Old Feeling

Jamie Devereaux, the younger brother of Blanche's late husband George, comes to visit her in Miami after his and George's mother passes away. Blanche cannot get over how much Jamie looks like George, to the extent that she ends up falling for him, with hopes of marriage.

Meanwhile, Dorothy keeps catching Sophia sneaking out of the house and driving on her own, using one of the girls' cars and using a phonebook to see over the steering wheel.

Episode Quotes
(To Blanche)
Dorothy: So how far do you want to go back, Blanche? Do you still want to be able to vote?

Blanche: I have some wonderful news! My mother in law died!

Blanche: I just hope the old witch went slow.
Dorothy: I sense the period of mourning is over.

Dorothy: Jamie may not see this as a happy ruinion, I mean, he just lost his mother.
Blanche: And I just ran out of gas. Life still goes on!

Blanche: I always take a deep breath before I meet somebody, it lunges my breasts forward.
Jaime: Honey you always did look pretty when you held your breath.

(To Jaime)
Dorothy: You'll have to excuse Rose. Everytime a man talks Southern at her she gets all stupid.

Jaime: I had to go over her will and when we got to your name she kept saying I want her to have it in this week little voice "I want her to have it, I want her to have it."
Blanche: Well how nice.
Jaime: She was talking about her disease.

Sophia: You know how embarassing it is to drive a car that has a bumper sticker saying "so many men, so little time."

Dorothy: If they want to make spies talk, they should make them read junior high English papers. Take a look at this "the characters in the Grapes of Wrath were so real, they're interesting."
Rose: Weren't they?

(To Blanche)
Jaime: Oh Blanche, it's never fooling to hold on to a memory. Sometimes a memory is all we are left with.
