Blanche's father reveals that he is getting married. Meanwhile, Dorothy and Rose enter a songwriting contest.
Did You Know?
Rose defends her suggestion to use "thrice" in their song about Miami by assuring Dorothy, "It's a word". Dorothy counters with, "So is inter-uterine. It doesn't belong in a song". In doing so, she makes a common mistake -- which an internet search reveals even can be seen in some hospital documentation on how to use IUDs. The correct word is "intra-uterine", "intra" being the prefix meaning "Inside" or "within". The prefix "inter" means "between", which creates an interesting, perhaps even uncomfortable, meaning when paired with "uterine". Rose continues the mistake as she tries to rhyme "inter-uterine" with "cuter than". It doesn't matter. It's all very, very funny. See more
Well, now I don't want you to get too excited, but Margaret and I are planning on walking down the aisle together.
Is she happy or sad?
I'm not sure, I've never heard her make that sound before.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak
No, I once heard her make that sound, and I assure you, she was happy.
