It's Up To Blanche and Rose to Hold Down The Fort Now

We lost another one today, folks.

Bea Arthur passed away today. Bad enough we lost Estelle Getty not so long ago and now this! My fellow Golden Girls fans join me in lamenting this great loss. Rest in Peace, Bea!! You will be greatly missed.

And now, some Dorothy Zbornak quotes to soothe us in our dark hour.

"I could have been living in a swinging condo instead of with...I better not say anything till I've had my coffee...a slut and a moron! I'm sorry, it must be decaf."

Blanche: ''Flirting is in my heritage.''
Rose: What does that mean?
Dorothy: ''Her mother was a slut too.''

"So you're five years older. So am I, so is Blanche. Alright, so you have a few more wrinkles. So do I, so does Blanche. OK, so you're a little thicker around the middle. So is Blanche!"

"I look like the mother of a Solid Gold dancer."

Blanche: Well, I have heard enough! No Devereaux has ever had to go to a bank for sperm. I certainly haven't!
Dorothy: She's always relied on the kindness of strangers.

Oh, back off, Blanche! Not all of us are classified by the Navy as a friendly port!"

Rose: You've become in the news business, what we call a 'hot story!'
Dorothy: You've become in the revenge business, what they call 'next.'

Blanche: Well, I certainly didn't wait for my wedding night, honey. I couldn't - I had these urges. You know, in the South, we mature faster. I think it's the heat.
Dorothy: I think it's the gin.

Blanche. We can't fire her. She's making me a love potion!
Dorothy: Use vodka and black underwear like everyone else!

Blanche: You're jealous of me. Admit it.
Dorothy: Blanche, there is a man leaving in ten minutes. Be under him.

I read this in the new earlier and it makes me really sad. I hope the 2 that are left live for many more years!

May Bea Arthur rest in peace. We will miss you!

I knew you would have a post on this. When I saw the headline and story on the BBC website, I immediately thought of you.

I adored this show and hearing this makes me so sad.

I need me some GG reruns ASAP.

And after we were singing along to the theme song on Friday night! So sad! Did I ever tell you that my friend Maureen once hung out in a hotel bar drinking cocktails with her in London?? She said she was a great lady!

Strange how a tv show seems like it can become a part of your life. Each quote brought back warm memories. Thanks for your tribute!
