The Golden Girls: Ro$e Love$ Mile$

Fed up with Miles and his frugality, Rose decides to act on the advice of Blanche and cheats on him, going out on a double date with her and some big spenders. Trouble soon arises, however, when Miles spots her on their date.

Meanwhile, Dorothy goes on a cruise, leaving Blanche in charge of Sophia, who sneaks out behind Blanche's back and travels to Sicily to make amends with Guido Spirelli, the man whom she stood up at the alter several years prior.

Episode Quotes
Blanche: I have been giving it some serious thought, and I finally have come up with the perfect solution for your very sensitive problem with Miles.
Rose: What?
Blanche: Cheat on him.
Rose: I can't cheat on Miles!
Blanche: Well, maybe "cheat" isn't quite the right word. Just think of it as one night out with my rich friends from Texas.
Rose: Well, why isn't that cheating?
Blanche: Because you're not gonna get caught. Come on, Rose, just think about it. A delicious dinner at an elegant restaurant, at night...
Rose: mean no coupons, Blanche?
Blanche: No coupons, Rose.
Rose: Chefs who don't wear pirate hats?
Blanche: I don't think so.
Rose: And he'll pay for everything, I don't have to leave the tip?
Blanche: That's right.
Rose: (pauses, thinking; then, in a singsong voice:) ...I'm gonna cheat on Mi-iles, I'm gonna cheat on Mi-iles!

Episode Goofs
Near the end of the episode, when Rose and Miles are on their date at the restaurant, look closely at Rose's handbag. The strap alternates between being off and on her shoulder in between shots.
