The Stan Who Came to Dinner was the 13th episode of Season 2 of The Golden Girls, also the 38th overall episode. Directed by Terry Hughes, and written by Kathy Speer and Terry Grossman, it premiered on NBC-TV on January 10, 1987.


Dorothy's ex-husband Stan turns up at the front door with some bad news; he needs major heart surgery and the girls agree to let him stay with them during his recovery. However, he quickly overstays his welcome.


Rose: (to Stan) We just wanted to stop by and wish you luck in case we don't see you again.

Stan looks at her in alarm.

Rose: Before you leave ... for the hospital. Not another world.

Blance: Lets not bother him anymore. Let Stan rest in peace.

She quickly realizes what she's just said then laughs.

Blanche: Sorry.
