Watching that show has become a family joke in my house....my husband stares at me in wonderment when I begin laughing hysterically at that show. I haven't watched it in a while (I watched it so much that I was seeing the same show about 4 times each), but I will try to pick up a show now and then. Sophia just kills me...esp when she sings this to "Thanks for the Memories.'
"Thanks for the Medicare...
For Blue Cross and Blue Shield,
For a hip that finally healed.
Don't forget prescriptions,
generics are a steal.
We thank you, so much...'
Love that show!
Gee Jkaee, I thought I was the only one who could sing that one off the top of my head! LOL
Anyway, I LOVE that show...I watched it when it was originally on and I've watched it for years on Lifetime! I don't think there's any episode that I haven't seen and I know most by heart practically. (I don't know if I'm proud or ashamed of that!) :chuckle
Not to get too serious here, but it was REALLY a groundbreaking show! They talked about a lot of things that were still taboo back in the 80s, i.e. homosexuality, HIV/AIDS, mixed race relationships, etc! Not only did they talk about it, but they did it in a way that made the viewers comfortable with it.
So, to all my fellow "Golden Girls junkies", I say....."Picture it....Scicily, 1920"! LOL
Oh, and I'm also addicted to MASH....anyone else???
