As you are well aware by now, our beloved Rue McLanahan passed away yesterday.
She was most famous for playing my favorite Golden Girl, Blanche Devereaux (pronounced Deverux in limericks). Though I would also draw attention to her roles in the TV Movies, Children of the Bride, Baby of the Bride and of course Mother of the Bride...all fine films as well.
In any case as with the passing with each beloved Golden Girl - let us have a tribute of quotes today and raise our glasses of Sloe Gin Fizz to toast Rue/Blanche Devereaux.
Dorothy: You know what's young to me now? Forty. Suddenly forty is young.
Blanche: Oooh... Aren't you sweet.
Rose: Tell me, is it possible to love two men at the same time?
Blanche: Set the scene, have we been drinking?
Blanche: You know how fragile men's egos are: one little mistake like screaming out the wrong name and they go all to pieces.
Blanche: Do you know what I hate doing most after a party?
Rose: Trying to find your undies in the big pile?
Rose: There's a strange man on our front lawn.
Blanche: Get the net!
Blanche: I feel like I'm in a bad dream. But I know I'm not dreaming, because there are no boy dancers.
Blanche: You're jealous of me. Admit it.
Dorothy: Blanche, there is a man leaving in ten minutes. Be under him.
Blanche: There is a fine line between having a good time and being a wanton slut. I know. My toe has been on that line.
Blanche : The doctor said he wants to put a pacemaker in me.
Sophia: Everybody's got a nickname for it!
Blanche: I do love the rain so. It reminds me of my first kiss.
Dorothy: Ah, your first kiss was in the rain?
Blanche: No, it was in the shower.
