The Golden Girls is based on the lives and interactions of four older women who 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 many episodes, the girls have money struggles and concerns not enough to fix the roof, not enough to buy a new TV, etc.
In other episodes, they can afford to hire a housekeeper (like they need one), buy designer dresses, and travel anywhere at the drop of a hat. See more »
[after being treated like a lady by one of her dates]
I feel like I did when I was a virgin!
You mean the feeling isn't going to last long?
Are you implying I lost my virginity at an early age?
I'm just saying you're lucky Jack-&-Jill magazine didn't have a gossip column.
I'm not going to stand for this! Not in my own house...
Take it Dorothy!
I bet you'll lay down for it!

The Golden Girls is a wonderfully written, extremely funny show that will always be one of the greatest comedy efforts of all time. The show has laughter everyone can enjoy, and it explores topics that few shows dare to address. All four women won Emmy Awards for their roles, and the show enjoyed extraordinary ratings and acclaim. Every aspect of the show provides for pure comedic entertainment that transcends the art itself. The show provides a look into how friends from very different backgrounds compliment each other and become the best of friends. Each character brings a unique dynamic to the plot, and any viewer can learn from, identify with, and, of course, laugh at their adventures. Simply a show for the ages.
