22 Times Insults Flung on ‘The Golden Girls’ Were Totally Savage

Ah… The world of The Golden Girls.

If you’re one of the unlucky few who haven’t seen this series, allow me to enlighten you. The show is an award winning, critically acclaimed sitcom starring Beatrice Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty. It was aired from 1985 to 1992. It revolves around four elderly women living in one house, three of whom are widows, and one is divorced.

But that’s not the fun part.

The fun part are the iconic, timeless one-liners that are still as funny now as they were back then. Enjoy the read, and make sure you’re not drinking anything!

There are so many more lines, more than this list can encompass, such as Rose and Dorothy’s exchange over people of colour.

Rose: “What color is black people’s dandruff?”
Dorothy: “Rose, black people don’t have dandruff. God figures they’ve been through enough already.”

Just.. It’s a great show. Go to the nearest video store, and find this glorious set. If you can’t, thank the lord for the internet.
