While a rose by any other name would technically smell as sweet, there's something about the incredible character of Moira Rose on Schitt's Creekthat can only be embodied by Catherine O'Hara. Every person on the CBC series is a gold mine for priceless one-liners, but no one delivers them better than the family matriarch herself. Moira's best lines in Schitt's Creek are hilarious, yes, but they also pair perfectly with her ridiculous wigs, over-the-top outfits, and unplaceable accent.
While Moira is thoroughly self-absorbed with an outrageous wardrobe to match, she's become a surprisingly sympathetic character as the seasons have worn on. She may not have attended David's (Dan Levy) high school graduation or know her daughter's middle name, but she and Johnny (Eugene Levy) have a genuine connection, and she's fiercely loyal to her family. What's more, her relationship with Jocelyn has grown into a sincere friendship (at least, deep down) and she's even learned to do some good on the town council. So even though Mrs. Rose is always vying for the Jazzagals spotlight, she's certainly made life in Schitt's Creek entertaining. And now that the Moira's Rose's Garden is a neighborhood fixture, her legacy has been permanently secured. Here are some of the endlessly quotable Moira lines that makes this Canadian series so compelling.
