Quotes from script
  • Exterminator: You have silverfish and waterbugs in the drainage areas, and under the baseboards structure, you have blateria andropoulous.

  • Exterminator: Blateria andropoulous is a cockroach.
  • Rose: Maybe he'll be voted out next election.

(Dorothy, Rose and Blanche have just been chatted up by two men who have mistaken them for prostitutes.)

  • Dorothy: 'Girls who will take their money?' Do you know what he thinks we are?
  • Rose: Waitresses?
  • Dorothy: No, Rose! Hookers!

  • Rose: It's always a man with you, isn't it Blanche? Men and sex, sex and men!
  • Prostitute: Hey! There's nothing wrong with being career-oriented!
  • Rose: (to Blanche) It's your overactive sex drive that got us into this mess! Who picks a hotel because of all the men in the lobby?

(The prostitutes all raise their hands.)

  • Dorothy: Listen, you punk! You wanna fight with someone, you're gonna have to fight with me, but I warn you, I did time in Attica.
  • Prostitute in Jail: Attica's a *men's* prison!
  • Dorothy: I know. I was there a year before they found out.
  • Prostitute in Jail: [backing down] Sorry, chief. I didn't mean to ruffle your feathers.
  • Blanche: Oh, Dorothy, that was magnificent. How did you ever pull that off?
  • Dorothy: I work in the public school system. It's not that different from this.

  • Dorothy: (after Sophia arrives at the jail) Ma, thank God you're here!
  • Sophia: Arrested for prostitution, I can't believe it!
  • Blanche: Sophia, we're innocent!
  • Sophia: I know that! I can't believe these dumb cops would think anybody would pay money to sleep with you!

  • Blanche: My God, you're Mr. Burt Reynolds!
  • Burt Reynolds: I hope so, otherwise I got the wrong underwear on. (to Sophia) These the roommates you told me about?
  • Sophia: Yeah.
  • Burt Reynolds: Which one's the slut?
  • Dorothy/Blanche/Rose: I AM!
