Gals, you know how much I adore me some Golden Girls. I was deeply deva to learn of Bea Arthur‘s passing on Saturday and felt that I just had to share some of my favorite Dorothy Zbornak quotes on BBJ. A bit late, but warranted, n’est–ce pas?
Slip on a gauzy caftan a la Dorothy, raise an eyebrow, maybe even bite your fist in aggravation and let’s take a trip down memory lane.
Dorothy: You’ll have to excuse my mother. She suffered a slight stroke a few years ago which rendered her totally annoying.
[Dorothy is solving a murder mystery–FROM MY FAVORITE EPISODE!!]
Dorothy: I think I see now how it happened – last evening, at dinner, when Miss McGlen saw Blanche give Kendall Nesbitt her key, she was furious. She dropped a steak knife into her purse…
Sophia: Big deal. I took a whole place setting.
Dorothy: NOT NOW, MA!
[Rose is up late, baking]
Rose: I couldn’t sleep, so I whipped up a batch of Sverhoeven Crispies. It’s a traditional midnight snack from St. Olaf dating back to Viking times.
Dorothy: Well, I guess after a hard night of pillaging and raping, a Viking would want a little something to go with his cocoa.
Be sure to check out my Golden Girls inspired post about Blanche’s vegetation themed bedroom from my 80s Ladies Week series. Anyone else craving a mint julep on the lanai?
