Four previously married women live together in Miami, sharing their various experiences together and enjoying themselves despite hard times.
In 1992, when Bea Arthur left the show, it was retooled by Susan Harris and became The Golden Palace (1992).
I think I see now how it happened - last evening, at dinner, when Miss McGlen saw Blanche give Kendall Nesbitt her key, she was furious. She dropped a steak knife into her purse...
Sophia: Big deal. I took a whole place sitting.
Dorothy: NOT NOW, MA!
In many episodes it is said that Dorothy married Stanley because she was pregnant and that they were married for 38 years at the time of the divorce. The odd thing is that neither of Dorothy's children are even close to being 38 years old.
Season 1 (1985-1986) had a slightly different opening sequence consisting of a different shot of the city behind the show's title, one different clip in-between the credits for 'Beatrice Arthur' and Betty White, and a different clip behind the credit for Rue McClanahan. This open was replaced with the 1986 opening for syndication. The original opening has been restored to the season 1 DVD release.
