About This Quiz

"The Golden Girls" are one of the most iconic groups of friends ever on television. Part of what makes Rose, Dorothy, Blanche and Sophia so memorable is their quotable banter. So we're going to bring back this fantastic series with a fun quiz. Who wouldn't want to travel down the road again with these pals and confidants? We want to see how well you were paying attention and if you can tell us who said which famous line. 

The show followed four women who all lived together in Miami. These friends navigated through life's many twists and turns. They shared laughs, tears and cheesecake. We'll always remember these ladies for giving us tales of Sicily and St. Olaf, along with advice about love and life. We know that Sophia was feisty, Dorothy was sarcastic, Blanche was a bit naughty and Rose was a tad clueless. But can you use their personalities to tell us who said what? Let's find out now. 

“Flirting is part of my heritage.”

This quote was said by Blanche Devereaux, the golden girl who was known for sharing the details of her romantic escapades with her friends — even though they often didn't want to hear about them.


"Picture it, Sicily ..."

Sophia Petrillo said this quote more than once. She often told fantastical stories about her days in Sicily.


"Christmas without fruitcake is like St. Sigmund's Day without the headless boy."

This quote was said by Rose Nylund. We're sure you remember how much she loved to tell stories about growing up in St. Olaf.


"Isn't it amazing how I can feel so bad, and still look so good?"

This quote​ was said by Blanche. Throughout the series, she never revealed her precise age and took great pride in her looks.


“No, I will not have a nice day.”

Dorothy Zbornak said this quote while trying to buy tickets for a Sinatra concert. After being kept on hold, she found out that it was sold out.


"I swear with God as my witness, I will never pick up another man! In a library ... on a Saturday ... unless he's cute ... and drives a nice car ... Amen."

This quote was said by none other than Blanche. As we know, the southern belle was a natural flirt.


"I’m not one to blow my own vertubenflugen.”

Of course, it's Rose who said this quote. Her anecdotes and odd sayings are unforgettable.


"No matter how bad things get, remember these sage words: You're old, you sag, get over it."

This quote was said by Sophia. When Blanche is feeling down, Sophia tells her to get over it.


"Well, nobody ever believes me when I'm telling the truth. I guess it's the curse of every devastatingly beautiful woman."

The always confident Blanche Devereaux said this quote. Try to remember it the next time you need an excuse!


"Go hug a landmine.”

This quote was said by Dorothy. You might not think this nickname fits her personality, but she's often called "Pussycat" by Sophia, her mother and roommate.


“You know, in the south, we mature faster. I think it’s the heat.”

The quote was said by Blanche, a woman who was extremely proud of being from the south.


"I'm jumpier than a virgin at a prison rodeo."

Naturally, it's Blanche who said this line. She believed herself to be the most desirable woman in their group of friends.


“You know what they say: You can lead a herring to water, but you’ll have to walk really fast or he’ll die!”

Oh, Rose! The loveable ditz said this memorable line.


"Go to sleep, sweetheart. Pray for brains."

This line was said by Dorothy. Bea Arthur played Dorothy perfectly. Bonus round: Who did she tell it to? Rose!


"Oh, I do love the rain so. It reminds me of my first kiss."

Blanche said this line, which understandably made Dorothy think that Blanche had her first kiss in the rain. "No, it was in the shower," Blanche corrected her.


"You drink out of a brown paper bag and suddenly everybody’s your friend."

Sophia said this one-liner when she explained to Rose why she was knitting a cover for the sherry she takes to the park.


"I've been having a good time, and there wasn't even a man in the room."

Oh, Blanche. She does love men, doesn't she?


“It wasn’t my fault. My cousins have been marrying each other for generations.”

This quote was said by the golden girl who was voted "most likely to get stuck in a tuba" — Rose Nylund.


“I could vomit just looking at you.”

This quote was said by Dorothy. We love her tough, dry nature.


"Grandma Hollingsworth always said I was a little flighty … or was it a little floozy?"

Blanche Devereaux, the daughter of Curtis "Big Daddy" Hollingsworth, said this line.


"It's like life is a giant weenie roast, and I'm the biggest weenie!"

Rose, who was played by Betty White, said this quote. Along with Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty, she also appeared on the spin-off show, "The Golden Palace."


"I know I look square, but I'm like my father's tractor. I take a while to warm up, but once I get going, I can turn your topsoil till the cows come home."

This quote was said by Rose, the innocent but not-so-bright golden girl. She was an optimistic woman who always spoke about life in St. Olaf, where she grew up.


"He was looking for a mother, not a lover. It was humiliating. “

Blanche, the southern belle who was known for saying what was on her mind, said this line.


"May you put your dentures in upside down and chew your head off."

Sophia said this line. She had some great one-liners when Angela, her sister, came to visit.


“Jealousy is a very ugly thing … and so are you in anything backless.”

Sophia said this memorable dig to Dorothy, her daughter.


“If I had that money I could have moved into a swinging condo instead of living with — I better not say anything until I’ve had my coffee ..."

Dorothy said this quote before she took a sip of coffee and continued, "A slut and a moron." Although she gives her friends a hard time, she genuinely cares about them.


"People waste their time pondering whether a glass is half empty or half full. Me, I just drink whatever's in the glass."

Sophia said this line. We've heard worse life mottos!


“It’s like you people don’t pay any attention to me whatsoever.”

This quote was said by Rose when she was frustrated that no one listened to her.


“I haven’t been this depressed since I was rejected by Uncle Sam.”

Rose said this line to Blanche and Dorothy. Blanche noted that if he had been her cousin, there might have been a future. This prompted a great line from Dorothy — "Tell me, Blanche, have any of your relatives appeared in 'Deliverance'?"


"Your heart's in the right place, but I don't know where the hell your brain is."

Who needs "bless your heart" when you can use this Sophia quote? We see where Dorothy got her quick wit.


“Sometimes life just isn’t fair, kiddo.”

It might surprise you that it's Rose who said this. She told it to a little girl who Blanche had given Rose's teddy bear to. Rose got it back!


“Get it while you’re young, baby.”

Sophia gave this nugget of advice.


"Everyone wants someone to grow old with and shouldn’t everyone have that chance?”

Sophia said this line. We can't disagree with the sentiment!

This line was said by Sophia. She had no time for fools or nonsense.
