Sophia: Alright fine! I'll eat a bowl of Chili then we'll talk in your room later.
Dorothy: Coming Mother.

Sophia: Don't you think I know what your brother Phil was doing in the bathroom when he said "I'm oiling my baseball glove."

Blanche: I've just been humiliated and disgraced!
Sophia: Many times, you're just now figuring that out?

Blanche: Put your clothes back on! That's the first time anybody ever said that to me...well without shining a flashlight in my face.

Sophia: I can't even see my hand.
Blanche: That's my hand Sophia.
Sophia: Thank God, I saw so many liver spots I thought I was being attacked by a dalmation.

Sophia: I have no daughter. I know no Dorothy
Rose: Yes you do Sophia, she's your daughter.
Sophia: I'm being dramatic you moron!

Blanche: I'm not old, Sophia.
