Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak : [singing] "Miami is nice, so I'll say it twice. Miami is nice, Miami is nice. Miami is..." Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You put in an extra "Miami is nice".
Rose Nylund : I had to. It hurts the music if you don't put it in.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak : Yeah, but the lyrics don't make any sense. I mean, it goes, "Miami is nice, so I'll say it twice."
Rose Nylund : Oh, I see your point. Well, what about this: "Miami is nice, so I'll say it thrice."
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak : Thrice! Who the hell says "thrice"?
Rose Nylund : It's a word.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak : So is intrauterine. It does not belong in a song.
Rose Nylund : [singing] "Miami, you're cuter than... an intrauterine".
Big Daddy : Well, now I don't want you to get too excited, but Margaret and I are planning on walking down the aisle together.
Blanche Devereaux : OHHHHHHH!
Big Daddy : Is she happy or sad?
Rose Nylund : 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.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak : [Rose and Dorothy are discussing whether they should enter a Miami song writing competition] You know, Rose, I have to confess, I dabbled a little in poetry writing in High School.
Rose Nylund : Oh, well, that's nothing to be ashamed of. A lot of tall girls who wouldn't get dates wrote poetry in High School.
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak : I meant that for ten thousand dollars, I might try my hand at lyric writing. I mean, maybe we could, you know, team up.
Rose Nylund : You mean music by Rose Nylund, lyrics by Dorothy Zbornak?
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak : Well, why not? I mean, we could be the next Rodgers and Hammerstein, the next Simon and Garfunkel, the next...
Rose Nylund : [excited] Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop!
Dorothy Petrillo Zbornak : I don't know if I could get my hand that far up your dress... But I'll tell you, for ten thousand dollars, I'd be willing to give it a try.
