For seven seasons, The Golden Girls made us laugh, cry, and feel every emotion in between. It's hard to believe it's been 26 years since Dorothy left the house she shared with Rose, Blanche, and Sophia to marry Blanche's uncle. (Who among us didn't shed a tear during Dorothy's conversation with her ex-husband, Stan, in the limo before her wedding during The Golden Girls finale?)
For those who aren't familiar with the show or who need a bit of a refresher, The Golden Girls was about four older women living as roommates in Miami. There's Blanche, the man-hungry Southern belle; Dorothy, the sarcastic and cynical substitute teacher; Rose, the not-so-bright one with hilarious stories about her hometown, St. Olaf; and Sophia, Dorothy's mom, who comes to live with the trio when her nursing home burns down. Together, the foursome get up to some side-splitting antics — and eat a lot of cheesecake.
It's nearly impossible to pick a favorite moment because the TV show gifted us with so many quotable scenes — not to mention The Golden Girls theme song, which is incredibly catchy. Even though most of The Golden Girls cast is no longer with us, we still have nearly 200 episodes and the most hilarious and poignant Golden Girls quotes to console us when we feel lonely.
