Scene excerpts Edit

  • Dorothy: Rose, honey... have you been washing the fruit off before you eat it?
  • Sophia: You know, I've just realised the best reason of all to enter this walkathon.
  • Dorothy:What's that Ma?
  • Sophia:[referring to Rose] I get away from this ditz for a whole day.
  • Dorothy: Ma, are you sure about this? 
  • Sophia: I'm not even sure I have these pants on right.

  • Bob Henderson: Here's a list of Norman's likes and dislikes.

(He hands the list to Rose, who looks it over.)

  • Rose: These are only dislikes.
  • Bob Henderson: Yeah, that's my Norman. And fortunately, for today, he's your Norman.

  • Blanche: (about the marathon) That doesn't sound like a bad idea. Maybe we should volunteer.
  • Rose: We already did.
  • Dorothy: What did you say?
  • Rose: (recoils) ...I said we already did...
  • Dorothy: Rose, I work all week. The last thing I want to do is walk 15 miles on a Saturday.

  • Sophia: We know, it's your second-favorite position.
