** And then later, when Blanche realizes part of his problem is that his parents (her daughter and her "Yankee" husband) are always arguing, she calls them and tells them in a half-bluff/half-truth that she's keeping him. When her daughter argues this, Blanche says "All right, but if you don't start giving that boy the love and attention he deserves [[MamaBear I will kick your uppity butt 'til Hell won't have it again!"]]

** Earlier in the same episode, the ladies are listening to a security system salesman give them a sales pitch designed to terrify them: "One in every four people will be a victim... ''[pauses for emphasis]'' of a violent crime." Dorothy, realizing the salesman is taking advantage of their fright (especially Rose's), finally has enough.

* Rose has another one in "It's a Miserable Life". She petitions to save an old tree in their neighborhood when their grouchy neighbor Frieda Claxton, whose property the tree resides on, wants it chopped down. At the public hearing, Rose has just about enough and [[https://youtu.be/SQ0VDQQkhIs gives the old bat a piece of her mind]].

** In the same episode, Blanche makes some unsavory comments about the prostitutes while she's in the cell. One particularly tough woman takes offense and stands up to challenge Blanche to a fight--and that's when Dorothy steps in and delivers a BadassBoast like no other. And it works!
---> '''Dorothy''': Listen, you punk. You wanna fight, you'll have to fight me. But I warn you, I did time in Attica.
--->'''Prostitute''': Attica's a ''men's'' prison.
--->'''Dorothy''': I know. [[LadyLooksLikeADude I was there a year before they found out.]]

-->'''Rose''': I ''know,'' Dorothy.
-->''(beat)''
-->'''Rose''': But I was hoping you'd have a hard time taking advantage of [[TrueCompanions somebody who cares about you as much as I do.]]
*** In the same episode, Sophia earns a Moment of Awesome when she won't get off Dorothy's back about the gambling problem. She admits that she feels guilty for letting Sal's life be ruined by betting, and absolutely refuses to let Dorothy run that risk for a second time (during her past gambling addiction, Dorothy almost lost her house). It's that non-stop barrage, combined with Rose's gentle nature, that finally gets through to Dorothy.

** Guilting Dorothy into admitting she has a gambling problem.

--->'''Rose''': I know, Dorothy.



* In ''Older and Wiser'' Sophia is caught having a late-night party with the residents at the senior center, and the director tries to break it up and send the residents back to bed. The wheelchair bound Mr. Louis reveals he can still speak, saying that it was the first time in twenty-five years he danced with anyone. When asked why he never spoke before, he replies that nobody was listening to him until Sophia came.

* In ''Older and Wiser'' Sophia is caught having a late-night party with the residents at the senior center, nursing home where she's been working, and the director tries to break it up and send the residents back to bed. The wheelchair bound wheelchair-bound Mr. Louis reveals he can still speak, saying that it was the first time in twenty-five years he danced with anyone. When asked why he never spoke before, he replies that nobody was listening to him until Sophia came. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny when the nursing home director (who's been a {{Jerkass}} throughout the episode) protests that he would have listened; Mr. Lewis shuts him down with a blunt "I don't like ''you.''"
** The whole episode counts as one for Sophia: she's given the title of "Activities Director" at the nursing home, which is full of lethargic elderly people who don't do anything but watch TV in silence all day. She brings joy and life back to the place, but the director gets angry--it turns out Dorothy got Sophia her (phony) job so she would have someone to look after her during the day. After a brief HeroicBSOD that makes her just as listless as the other seniors, Sophia pulls herself up and goes back to the center anyway to throw the party. Her outright refusal to let both her daughter and her old age dictate what she can and can't do is awe-inspiring.



* Blanche's (gay)brother Clayton gets one for calling Blanche out on her homophobia when he announced he was getting married to a man he'd been seeing.

Added DiffLines:

* In "All Bets Are Off," Dorothy's gambling addiction rears its head again, and she soon finds herself both losing out on a vice-principal position and in deep debt. Rose enters the kitchen, and Dorothy, desperate to pay off her bookie, asks if she can borrow money. Rose happily hands her ATM card over to Dorothy, blithely chattering about how much she trusts her. Dorothy protests Rose's naivety, but she won't let up, telling Dorothy that she considers her a sister. Eventually, Dorothy outright ''yells'' that she's stealing money from Rose...and Rose quietly agrees. She saw through Dorothy's lies and hoped that abusing the trust of someone who genuinely loved her would make her conscience kick in. It works, and Dorothy goes back to Gamblers' Anonymous to get her life back.
