When Dorothy goes with Blanche to The Rusty Anchor, she feels out of place. With everyone crowding around Blanche, Dorothy sits down alone near the piano player, who is noodling 'I Wanna Be Loved By You' (the song that Blanche sings later in the show). Dorothy begins to hum along, and the piano player senses a singer. "You sing, don't you?", he says to Dorothy. "How about some Irving Berlin? 'Blue Skies' . . . 'Always'" She politely declines, until he suggests 'What'll I Do'. "D-flat is good for me", she confidently says. They proceed to perform the song masterfully - and actually in the key of D-flat.

Blanche Devereaux: You idiot, everybody thinks she's dead now! Well, we're gonna have to tell them the truth before she comes out.
Sophia Petrillo: [walking in] Hey, everyone!
[the guests gasp]
Sophia Petrillo: Thanks for coming to my wake! What do you think of the dress?
[Sophia slowly spins; guests shriek and gasp; a woman faints]
Sophia Petrillo: Well, excuse me for buying off the rack!

Journey to the Center of Attention (#7.18)
25 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Blanche takes Dorothy with her to a bar she often goes to.Dorothy sings a song and gets the attention of all the guys. Now when she comes she is always the centre of attention instead of Blanche and it drives Blanche mad. But her performance isn't as successful. And Sophia has a wake for herself while still being alive.

Well it was a good episode because of the charming old school bar place. It was nice to see Dorothy sing, she really did very well. And Blanche's performance was especially fun.

And we had another comedic story of Rose forgetting to tell everyone that Sophia is still alive at her wake.
