Good Times

Willona, the Fuzz - S5-E6

Other mistake: JJ says that everybody else in the office just has to look at their watch when the boss asks them the time but he has to go outside down the block because he can't afford a watch. Throughout the whole scene, you can see a wristwatch on his right wrist. He even raises his arm where his sleeve moves to his elbow to show it. It looks like a pretty expensive watch too. (00:05:00)

A Stormy Relationship - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: 1/3 through the program, Michael is given his father's tool belt by his mom and he puts the strap on his shoulder. The next shot and for a few after, the strap is gone. Then it comes back again.

J.J.'s Fiancee: Part 2 - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, JJ's girlfriend is wearing a shawl and the buttons are miss-buttoned by one button. In the next scene, the shawl is buttoned correctly.

Show generally

Question: Is Florida a widow?

Chosen answer: Florida's husband, James Evans, Sr., appeared in a total of 61 episodes during Seasons 1-3 of the series. After creative differences with the show's creator, Norman Lear, mainly over the increasingly buffoonish characterization of oldest son, James "J.J." Evans, Jr., actor John Amos did not have his contract renewed. His character was killed off in an automobile accident in his home state of Mississippi while he was securing steady work in the hope of relocating his family there. Florida learned of his death via a phone call at the family's going away party. We don't know if her second husband, Carl, died or just stayed in Arizona, and it's debateable whether someone who remarries is still called a widow.

The Gang: Part 1 - S2-E9

Question: Neck Bone and Sweet Pea are referred to by Florida as their real names, Tyrone and Sylvester. Do we know which name goes to which guy? (I've always wondered this).

The Gang: Part 1 - S2-E9

Question: According to the credits, the smallest of the three Satan Knights that come over to get JJ is nicknamed "Sweet Pea." However this name is never mentioned by anyone in this episode. The other two are mentioned (Mad Dog and Neck Bone). Why would the credits use a name not used?
