"The Golden Girls" Big Daddy's Little Lady (TV Episode 1986) Poster

Bea Arthur: Dorothy Zbornak


  • 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.
