The Golden Girls is based on the lives and interactions of four older women whom have all been divorced/widowed, and are now roommates. Dorothy's main goal during the series is to find a companion she can relate to while her mother Sophia adds her comical outlook and frequents "Picture This" stories. Rose's St. Olaf-ness makes her a little corny but lovable. One thing that changes nearly every episode is whom Blanche is courting. Written by

In the first season exteriors of the house were shot from a real house in California. For later seasons exterior shots were filmed at Walt Disney World's MGM Studios (now "Disney's Hollywood Studios"). They built an exact replica of the house in Orlando. This replica was demolished in 2003. See more »

I'll give you anything. I'll give you one of my sons.
Dorothy, I've given this a lot of thought. I've had 4 kids, I've never had a Mercedes. So, which one do you want? Biff, Doug, Skippy? No, don't take Skippy, he's got asthma.

I loved this show the minute I saw it as a teen. I saw it once or twice as a kid, but never got the jokes. Now that I'm a bit more grown-up, I've seen every epi at least 10 times and watch it whenever it comes on. They were the precursor to every show about 4 women talking about everything under the sun. The similarity to Sex and the City is very striking and many other shows like that. Blanche and Dorothy were my favorite. But, of course, each one represents the different sides of women. Like that episode with the Hungarian sculpturer who said the stature was all 3 of them because together, they make the perfect woman. I love this show to death and don't mind watching it over and over. It broke a lot of barriers and is just plain funny. They were so good at their characters that to see them doing something outside of it in real life is a shock, lol. Golden Girls Forever!
