--> '''Rose''': Maybe we should sign Mary up for some natural childbirth lessons.
--> '''Dorothy''': You know, that's not a bad idea! I wish I'd known about them when I was pregnant. I didn't know what to do, except scream at Stan never to touch me again, and call him every name in the book.
--> '''Rose''': Rough labor?
--> '''Dorothy''': Rough ''conception''.

** Blanche, Rose, and Sophia's poor treatment of Dorothy starts losing its humor as the jabs move from snarky to outright cruel, leading up to the episode where Dorothy is put on trial with Stan for running a slum they inherited from a deceased relative, that Dorothy wanted no part of. Rose (who works at a consumer advocacy group) runs an exposé on the apartment, and when she finds out that Dorothy is one of the landlords, she only considers how she could have punched the story up to make herself look better. Blanche is easily fooled by the prosecutor into claiming that Dorothy is callous, and Sophia testifies that Dorothy put her in a home (this is treated by the court as a horrific crime). Keep in mind Dorothy could have gone to ''jail'' over this. At no point in the episode do Blanche, Rose, or Sophia say anything genuinely helpful or reassuring to Dorothy.

** In one episode, Blanche's younger brother Clayton comes out as gay and leaves to let her take the surprising news in. Blanche initially has a hard time believing it, but comes around to embrace it when she goes to meet Clayton in what she incorrectly assumes to be a gay bar. Although it's PlayedForLaughs and may be considered a case of InnocentlyInsensitive, Blanche proclaims she'd be proud to have any one of them date her brother only to have one of them say he'd rather date her, to which she exclaims "I ''converted'' one!" Given all the controversy to come out about the psychologically harmful effects of gay conversion therapy, this line may be a tad contentious for some.

* BrokenBase: Are Sophia's jibes funny? Or is she just too mean-spirited to be enjoyable? A lot of people get annoyed pretty quickly at her shabby treatment of her roommates, especially her daughter, while using ScrewPolitenessI'mASenior as a perpetual excuse.
