Added DiffLines:

* BuxomIsBetter: Her ample bustline has been mentioned a couple of times, one time to psych Blanche out by pointing out that her shirt (a copy of Blanche's) only looks different on a busty woman.
** DCupDistress: A few episodes have pointed out that Rose gets negative male attention to his area (the dentist episode was an example) and that she merely was teased for her growing bustline as a girl, when she tells Blanche that she never needed a large bust to attract men the way she always had.

a trait she inherited form her Mother and often uses it, especially on [[TheDitz Rose]].

* BewareTheNiceOnes: She can be a pretty big bitch if she wants.

to:

* BerserkButton: Losing during sporting competitions, messing with her beloved teddy bear, and mocking her husband.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She can be a pretty big bitch if she wants. On the flip side, she can also be a force to be reckoned with if people are trying to exploit her or the girls.



* CompanionCube: She's very attached to a stuffed bear she calls Fernando. In one episode, Blanche accidentally gave it away to a young girl who then proceeded to hold it for ransom. When Rose found out about, she dropped her usual demeanor and order Blanche to get Fernando back.
-->'''Rose''': Blanche just cut the crap and get back the damn bear!



* SpiritedCompetitor: Any kind of competition is SeriousBusiness to her and serves as her BerserkButton.

!! Sophia Petrillo (Creator/EstelleGetty)(Estelle Getty)


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: Unfortunately, there were a few times where Sophia's crusty attitude shifted into full fledged meanness without any comedic elements towards it, and her actions have been legitimately hurtful towards others. She ostracized her son Phil and had a nasty relationship with his wife because of Phil's crossdressing, which not only hurt Phil but alienated Sophia from their kids and [[spoiler: it's only after Phil dies that Sophia is finally able to realize Phil's desire to wear feminine clothes did not make him less of a good person.]] There were also the times when she set up Gloria and Stan regardless of Dorothy's feelings, and the time she almost destroyed Rose's relationship with Miles by mocking Rose's dead husband.


Added DiffLines:

* MayDecemberRomance: She's been able to court guys who're much younger than she is, sometimes only by a few years, sometimes by a few decades.


Added DiffLines:

* PapaWolf: For all his faults he was a legitimately good father and just as protective of their kids as Dorothy is.
