Season two of The Golden Girls gets under way as an apprehensive Blanche (Rue McClanahan) takes a pregnancy test which comes up positive. Can it be that our fiftysomething heroine is going to have a baby? No, it so happens that Blanche is in the first stages of menopause -- and she's mighty miserable when she finds out. Meanwhile, Dorothy (Bea Arthur), Rose (Betty White), and Sophia (Estelle Getty) try to raise extra cash by breeding minks; unfortunately, the little devils steadfastly refuse to procreate. Amazingly, it turns out that the episode's two subplots have a great deal in common!
