15 Times The Golden Girls Were Said Exactly What You Were Thinking, In Gifs

by Katherine Barner


Sophia, Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose have the incredible ability to tell it exactly how it is. They are blunt, they don’t sugarcoat, and frankly don’t often give a fuck what other people think. Their level of no-fucks-given is something we have all felt at one time or another. Here are a few times my favorite seniors have been completely relatable:

When Someone Is Really, Really Creepy


Sophia: There’s just something I don’t like about him. I can’t put my finger on it, but if I did, I’d have to wash it.

When You’re Playing Innocent

Dorothy: You know what your trouble is?
Blanche: Of course not.

When You Need A Really Good Distraction

Sophia: When I feel bad, I have to take my mind off it. There’s only one thing that does that to me.
Dorothy: Cooking a big meal…
Sophia: No, making love in a closet.

When You Need A Little More To A Story

Rose: Tell me, is it possible to love two men at the same time?
Blanche: Set the scene, have we been drinking?

When You Try To Give Up Something You Love

Blanche: I tried giving up sex.
Dorothy: I guess you fell off the wagon.
Sophia: And on to a naval base!

When You’re Calling Someone’s Bullshit

Sophia [who is in a grocery store at the fruit counter]: Haven’t you got any decent nectarines?
Clerk: You’re crazy! This nectarine is beautiful! I’ve never seen a more perfect piece of fruit!
Sophia: Oh yeah? Then try kissing my behind — it’s a real peach!

When Someone Talks To You Before Coffee

Rose: Hi, Blanche!
Blanche: Must you always be so cheerful, you empty-headed Mary Poppins knockoff?

When Adulting Is Really Hard

Blanche: Dorothy, they’re adults, adults can do whatever they want to.
Rose: Not necessarily, adults are not allowed to ride the little horsey in front of the A&P.

When You Just Can’t Seem To Find Your Chill

Dorothy: Rose, what are you listening to?
Rose: A relaxation tape. The rain is supposed to relax me.
Dorothy: Is it working?
Rose: Not really. I keep worrying that I left my car windows down.

When You’re On A Crappy Date

Stan: Hello, mama bear. Papa bear’s back in the cave.
Dorothy: I could vomit just looking at you.

When You’re Not Quick On Your Toes

Rose: You… you… you rude person!
Dorothy: Go easy on him, Rose.

When You Just Want A Little Flattery

Blanche: How do I look, girls?
Rose: Great!
Blanche: How about sexy?
Rose: Oh yes!
Blanche: And sensual?
Dorothy: Let me handle this, Rose… Blanche, no woman has ever 
looked better than you do right now and no one ever will!
Blanche [smiling]: Why thank you, Dorothy!… My goodness, Rose, I swear sometimes it’s like pulling teeth to get a little compliment out of you.

When You Never Want To Move Ever

[A plumber delivered a toilet and  put it near the front door]
Sophia: Dorothy, you’re a genius!
Dorothy: What do you mean, Ma?
Sophia: I walk into the living room and there is a toilet right in front of
the television set… It’s an old ladies’ dream!

When Your Friends Try To Set You Up With Someone

Blanche: Dorothy Zbornak, have I got the man for you!
Dorothy: No thanks. Had one.

When Someone Says “No Offense” After Saying Something Clearly Offensive

Sophia: No offense, pussycat.
Dorothy: None TAKEN, you cankerous little prune!
