Fran's Dress - S1-E10

Corrected entry: In this episode when talking to Fran, Mama states, "I used to iron with my right hand, mash potatoes with my left, with four screaming kids under me." However, Mama only had three kids on the show: Vint, Unice, and Ellen. Where did the fourth kid come from?

Correction: It's an exaggeration implying that she worked herself to the bone taking care of them as kids. (Research "Uphill Both Ways In The Snow To School" for a classic example).

It could have been Iola because she hung out at their house when she was a little girl.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the first two seasons, there are 3 bedrooms upstairs: Mama's, Fran's, and Sonja's. But after Buzz and Sonja move out and Aunt Fran dies, Bubba moves in and takes Aunt Fran's room. Vinton and Naomi are still in the basement complaining that they wanted Fran's room. However, originally there was another room upstairs, Sonja's room, that disappeared.

Thelma 'Mama' Harper: From now on if we have any backstabbing to do were going to do it the way we have always done it face to face.
