    Maude :: line from show :: Husband says "We are sick of all these homosexuals moving into the neighborhood, we are starting a group today 'Fathers Against Gays' :: Maude says " So your a bunch of F.A.G.s" - its when I knew I liked being gay

    Sadness. RIP. :(



  71. 71

    God Pervez, You can't even be bothered to mention she was a TONY winner for MAME? She pioneered a lot of tough women roles at a time where it was difficult to be tough and funny at the same time. As the butt of many jokes, she has taken a lot of flack for her looks and height over the years. However, she had the last laugh for being successful and strong. She was a role model for many strong women to come out of the 70's and 80's. Thank you, darling girl! For being YOU.



  72. 72

    I LOved this woman! She was so cool!
    lol

    used to go to the local gay bar to watch golden girls way way back when

    rest in peace you gorgeous wonderful woman



  97. 97

    This really, really upsets me! She was such a star and really a true beauty. Anyone who can make that many people laugh for as long as she did is a beautiful person, as the gift of laughter is one of the greatest gifts of all. May she rest in peace. Sophia and Dorothy are together again. *sniffle*



  98. 98

    :(



  99. 99

    Sad news. I loved her. Golden Girls was the best show ever. And I just recently started watched season 1 of maude on DVD. I hope somewhere Dorothy and Ma are having a piece of cheescake together.
