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.
