R.I.P. Sophia Petrillo

It's a sad day for Golden Girls fans. Estelle Getty, who played wisecracking Sophia, has died at age 84.

Golden Girls was groundbreaking ensemble comedy — four strong, older female leads for whom sex, fun and cheesecake weren't distant memories.

Here are a few great lines from the show:

Blanche: I treat my body like a temple.

Sophia: Yeah, open to everyone, day or night.

Dorothy: Well Blanche is certainly taking her sister's novel better than I would. I would kill my sister Gloria if she ever wrote about my sex life.

Sophia: You would kill your sister over a pamphlet?

Blanche: Are you implying I lost my virginity at an early age?

Sophia: I'm just saying you're lucky Jack-&-Jill magazine didn't have a gossip column.

Blanche: [Sophia slapped Blanche's grandson for mouthing off] Is that all you Italians know how to do? Scream and hit?

Sophia: No, we also know how to make love and sing opera!

Blanche: [referring to her brother and his lover visiting] My goodness, what would the neighbors think if they saw two men lying in my bed?

Sophia: They'd think it's Tuesday!
