Mama's Family picture

What a Dump - S5-E11

Character mistake: When it is announced that Mama's block has been chosen for the new city dump, Iola states that she would have to move too. Being that Iola lives across the street she does not live on the same block as Mama and therefore would not be affected.

Suggested correction: "Block" in this case is just a synonym for "neighborhood." Just like how, at the beginning of the episode, Mama was throwing a "block party"-ie, a neighborhood get-together. Therefore, the entire neighborhood, including Iola, would be affected.
