Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: [coming onto the lanai carrying a small painted rock] Girls, look what I found under my bed.
Rose Nylund: Gee, that's the most colorful dustball I've ever seen.
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: This is no dustball, Rose. I think it may be some kind of charm.
Marguerite Brown: [overhearing] It is! I learned it from my grandmother. You put a specially painted rock beneath a person's bed to bring them a restful sleep.

The Housekeeper (#3.4)
18 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The girls are hiring a housekeeper. It is hard to find a good one, but finally they get somebody who seems to be perfect. She also seems to have some magic powers helping Blanche to get more men and Dorothy to sleep better. But she doesn't do her job well. But when they hire her she says they will regret it. And suddenly everything starts going bad! A very funny episode. Paula Kelly is a good choice for the role and she is doing it in a very funny way.

I love it when they show all the bad things happening such as Rose falling, fun comedy. And it even makes Dorothy believe it. The tiara Rose got for the housekeeper was a fun moment as well.

The ending was great. Pretty much laughing until the end.
