Rose claimed that she was the daughter of Bob Hope in order to get him to perform for a benefit. Luckily for her, he turned out to be the old vaudeville partner of Sophia's boyfriend and showed up anyway.anyway.
** Blanche also liked to engage in this frequently. Probably her biggest case of this is when she claimed to have slept with Music/ElvisPresley in order to convince Rose to elect her president of their newly-established Elvis fan club.

** Rose yet again, whenever there was any type of game or competition that she'd really get into. She admitted to being very competitive, and would sometimes get bitchy and downright mean.

** Rose yet again, whenever there was any type of game or competition that she'd really get into. She admitted to being very competitive, and would sometimes get bitchy and downright mean. For example, in the episode "Sister of the Bride", Rose is happy that her competition for a volunteering award is dead so that she can finally win.

** In another episode, Blanche is trying to install a hot tub, and runs into some problems with the zoning code. When she addresses them, Rose inadvertently blurts out that there are three non-family members living in the house, which is another violation costing thousands of dollars. Dorothy eventually realizes that while it's against the law for strangers to live together, it would be perfectly legal if they all served as co-owners rather than renters. Blanche is initially reluctant, but eventually agrees, signing paperwork to give the girls equal claim to the house's title and changing the rent payments to mortgage payments.



* TransEqualsGay: Very refreshingly averted with Phil, Sophia's cross-dressing son. He was happily married to a woman for years, and had many children with her--he just happened to like dressing up in women's clothing (something his wife supported, as it made him happy). It's [[DiscussedTrope discussed]] in the episode where Phil dies; Sophia suggests that Phil might have been "queer," and Blanche corrects her, pointing out that the [[HaveAGayOldTime correct term is now "gay."]] Sophia counters this by pointing out that Phil was "a six-foot-three, two hundred pound man with kids."

* TrueCompanions: All four of the main group. They may all be markedly different and bicker constantly, but they are closer than family, to the point that they all have a pact to take care of one another if something ever happens to one of them. Blanche even says that she would go to the point of selling her home to get money for Rose if she (Rose) needs rehab after a major heart surgery.

** In "Home Again, Rose,"
Rose if she (Rose) suffers a severe heart attack and needs rehab after a major heart quadruple bypass surgery. When her daughter expresses concern that they won't be able to pay for the rehab, Blanche ''immediately'' remarks that the girls will help, commenting "That's why houses have mortgages." In other words, she was willing to take out another loan on her property if it meant helping Rose.
** Earlier in the series, Blanche actually makes the women co-owners of the house rather than renters, something she was initially reluctant to do.
