lesbian friend comes to visit the girls
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...One of the funniest episodes of -any- comedy ever! I hate to be clichéd, but I laughed till I cried. "Sophia" has some of the best lines ever. Lois Nettleton guests as Rose's lesbian friend. She plays the part perfectly with humor and a gentle vulnerability. I can't imagine why this episode would be rated under an 8 or 9. The writers deal with a potential 'senior' bias against homosexuality with a deft mix of humor and personalizing the issue by making the gay person a dear friend. It's neither preachy nor didactic. In fact, I haven't even seen the episode since it first aired(!) but I still remember some of the jokes. If you don't like Golden Girls, that's one thing. But if you're a fan, this episode is everything the show is supposed to be: hilarious and finally touching.
