10. When Dorothy's ex-husband, Stan, and his charming brother came to visit, and he expected a similar, happy greeting from Dorothy:

NBC

Season 3, Episode 8, "Brotherly Love"

11. And she had no problem telling her ex how she really felt when he came around:

NBC

Season 3, Episode 17, "My Brother, My Father"

12. Even when he was seeking compassion, she always made sure she got a few punches in:

13. When it came to passive-aggressive insults, Dorothy had no problem delivering a sarcastic comeback:

14. And the majority of insults were based on her taller, broader figure:

15. However whenever the girls found themselves in a tight spot, Dorothy felt no shame in utilizing her stronger physique to save them from trouble:

Season 2, Episode 2, "Ladies of the Evening"

16. But honestly, no part of her body was ever shown mercy:

18. And of course, when their house was broken into and Dorothy was in no mood to deal with Rose's imagination:

Season 1, Episode 8, "The Break-In"
NBC

Season 1, Episode 8, "The Break-In"

19. But let's not deny that all Dorothy really needed to do was give a "look" that said more than any comeback could to convey her impatience:

NBC

20. Or her frustration:

NBC

21. Or just how absolutely done she was with the idiocy:

NBC

22. But at the end of the day, the girls just wouldn't be the same without each other, and in this case, Dorothy's level-headed personality hilariously conveyed to balance out the group.

NBC

23. What else can we say except, "Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a friend."
