Picture it: Virginia, 2018. Kerri Carpenter is watching one of her all-time favorite sitcoms, The Golden Girls. She’s struck with an episode where the girls crash a high school reunion. She decides to “borrow” this idea and create an entire book around it. Yada, yada, yada, Her Super-Secret Rebound Boyfriend is born.
But I have to give credit where credit is due. Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia had it going on!
Here is a list of my top five favorite Golden Girls quotes. Don’t question it. Just enjoy!
Favorite Dorothy Quote:
This quote sums up so many internal monologues I have throughout the day.
I could vomit just looking at you.
Favorite Rose Quote:
We were all lucky to learn so many wise sayings from Rose’s hometown of St. Olaf.
As they say in St. Olaf…
Favorite Blanche Quote:
Because, let’s be honest, we have all thought this at some point in our lives.
I am upset because I was not the center of attention and nobody said I was the prettiest.
Favorite Sophia Quote:
Yet another quote that runs through my mind almost daily.
Have I given you any indication at all that I care?
All-time favorite quote:
It’s random. It’s funny. It gets extra points for the use of “lanai.”
Sonny Bono, get off my lanai!
Tell me in the comments if you enjoyed The Golden Girls as much as me? If not, tell me your favorite sitcom from the 80s.
It wasn’t shy librarian Lola McBride’s idea to crash someone else’s high school reunion. Her best friend made her do it, insisting that having a little fun with a super-hot rebound would make her forget about her recent breakup. That’s when she meets the hottest guy she’s ever seen.
Architect Luke Erickson had no idea attending his ten-year reunion would turn out to be so fun. He catches the sexy librarian in a lie, and he counters with a proposal—he’ll keep her secret if she’ll help him play a little game with his family.
From one reunion to another, Lola and Luke are suddenly spending a lot of time together. But one misstep and their little game could have serious consequences.
Kerri Carpenter began writing in her grandmother’s kitchen at the age of seven in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA. A life-long fan of reading, she got lost in the worlds of The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. She also assumed that everyone had characters and plots forming in their heads at all times. Once she turned to romance novels, she couldn’t get enough of books with happy endings, so she started writing her own. Now, Kerri writes contemporary romances, usually set in small towns. She enjoys reading, cooking, watching movies, taking Zumba classes, rooting for Pittsburgh sports teams, and anything sparkly. Kerri lives in Northern Virginia with her adorable (and mischievous) poodle mix, Harry.
