A favorite relaxing weekend activity for my roommates and I in college was as much Designing Women and Golden Girls as the Lifetime channel would give us. Those were the days.

I know this one was mentioned several years ago, but here it is agiain anyway in all its glory:

Julia: Excuse me, aren't you Marjorie Leigh Winnick, the current Miss Georgia World?
Marjorie: Why, yes I am.
Julia: I'm Julia Sugarbaker, Suzanne Sugarbaker's sister. I couldn't help over hearing part of your conversation.
Marjorie: Well, I'm sorry. I didn't know anyone was here.
Julia: Yes, and I gather from your comments there are a couple of other things you don't know, Marjorie. For example, you probably didn't know that Suzanne was the only contestant in Georgia pageant history to sweep every category except congeniality, and that is not something the women in my family aspire to anyway. Or that when she walked down the runway in her swimsuit, five contestants quit on the spot. Or that when she emerged from the isolation booth to answer the question, "What would you do to prevent war?" she spoke so eloquently of patriotism, battlefields and diamond tiaras, grown men wept. And you probably didn't know, Marjorie, that Suzanne was not just any Miss Georgia, she was THE Miss Georgia. She didn't twirl just a baton, that baton was on fire. And when she threw that baton into the air, it flew higher, further, faster than any baton has ever flown before, hitting a transformer and showering the darkened arena with sparks! And when it finally did come down, Marjorie, my sister caught that baton, and 12,000 people jumped to their feet for sixteen and one-half minutes of uninterrupted thunderous ovation, as flames illuminated her tear-stained face! And that, Marjorie — just so you will know — and your children will someday know ---is the night the lights went out in Georgia!

And this as well:
"For example, you probably didn't know that Suzanne was the only contestant in Georgia pageant history to sweep every category except congeniality, and that is not something the women in my family aspire to anyway. "

Dear Little One,
I wish two things;
To give you roots.
To give you wings.

The First Day of the Last Decade of the Entire Twentieth Century

The ladies and Anthony have been mesmerized by the tales at Miss Minnie's bedside as she starts to speak passionately and emotionally.
MISS MINNIE BELL WARD: ....I thought as I got older, the bold outline of truth would be revealed to me, but it hasn't happened. When I was young, I was in such a hurry. And now, I've been here a hundred years. It seems like only yesterday I held my babies in my arms. I'm glad to be going home. It's been a long time since I've seen my family. And I wish for all of you, all the love and happiness I had in my life -- and I hope the world keeps going toward freedom. And I hope that people everywhere can learn to live together in peace. As my pappa used to say......we ain't what we should be, we ain't what we're gonna be, but at least we ain't what we were..... (and Miss Minnie slowly lays back as she gasps her final breath and passes on.)

Not a quote, but....

The exteriors for Julia's and Suzanne's homes were shot in Little Rock, AR.

Julia's home (Sugarbaker's) is Villa Marre

while Suzanne's home is the Arkansas Governor's Mansion.

No one has mentioned the episode "Miss Trial"?

Julia: "I'd like to thank you again, Charlene, for turning me in to the judge. Now the entire jury is sequestered and I am stuck sharing a room with a woman with no lips."

Later...

Suzanne to Charlene: "I think you and your baby oughta get a couple of black wigs and get the hell out of town."

Customer at Burger Guy: Is it fresh?

Julia, working the counter: Let me put it this way—it's compressed fish, breaded and deep-fried, it costs 89 cents. What do you think?

Customer: I dunno.

Julia: Yes, it's fresh.

My mom watched DW religiously and sometimes I'd watch it with her.

Two episodes come to mind:

1) The episode where they all go to New Orleans and get hammered, then the next day while trying to fix the microphone Annie Potts' character announces that she's having an affair with a married man and the microphone turns back on when she says it.

2) The episode where Bernice has her own TV show and interviews Julia and someone else (Charlene??), and she starts asking Julia questions with sexual inuendos.

I don't remember much about the episode except that Mary Jo's daughter Claudia had a serious boyfriend, and she was still in High School. And Mary Jo was talking to Claudia about how if she had *questions*, she would be happy to answer them. And she slipped in very quickly at the end of her conversation, "Don't have sex." Like a subliminal message. That one got plenty of use with my mother, sister and me.

"Tonight we're talking about a problem that preys on the mind of every senior citizen: sex for sale."
