Rose: Well, let's just say you wouldn't want to park your car under their oak tree.

Rose: Huh?
Dorothy: Fine. Play it cagey.

Dorothy: You try and I'll have you on your back so fast you'll think you're out on a date.

Dorothy: Oh c'mon, Blanche. Age is just a state of mind.

Trivia: Although she appeared to be an 80 year old on the show, the late Estelle Getty (born 7/25/23) was younger than her costars Betty White (born 1/17/22) and Bea Arthur (born 5/14/22); and Rue was the youngest of the four (2/21/34). Estelle at first was turned down for the role of Sophia (because she was too young). It was only after she came back dressed in a gray wig, thrift store dress, and heavily made-up, that she got the part.

Question: How exactly did the girls' (sans Dorothy) husbands die?

The Impossible Dream

Chosen answer: Rose's husband Charlie died making love to her. There are at least 3 different ways Blanche's husband George is said to have died: 1. Blanche was getting a pedicure when he was killed. 2. He had a car accident and died. 3. He had been in a coma and died. In theory they could all be combined (he had a car accident, fell into a coma, then died while she was having a pedicure), but that's conjecture. I'm not sure how Sophia's husband Sal died.
