Quotes

Blanche: Hi, Dorothy. Rose and I are thinking about going to the movies; you want to go?
Dorothy: Oh, I can't tonight. No, Barbara is taking me to the experimental theatre downtown.
Blanche: Somebody dragged me to a show there one time. Three men paraded around the stage for five hours talkin' about God eatin' graham crackers. They wore masks to cover their faces, but other than that they were totally naked.
Rose Nylund: And you stayed through the whole evening?
Blanche: Well, I would have left, but one of the actors looked so familiar to me.

a great episode
27 December 2015 | by den-86397See all my reviews

A great episode, with emphasis on an important subject - and I was thrown by how much the guest star reminds me of Lauren Lane, from the Nanny - though it turns out not to be - another great written show - with great performances by all -

As always, funny lines, thought provoking subjects, and great sets. This has to be one of the classic TV series of all times.

This is one of the series that would be great to have the whole set on DVD, you can watch these episodes over and over and see new things each time that you didn't notice before.

It is hard to be able to envision anyone else doing these rolls as well as the 4 stars, plus the guest stars seem to give impeccable performances.
