Rashomama - S2-E5

Corrected entry: During Naomi's flashback, Thelma says "Betty, get me that stew pot up there, will you?" Speaking to Ellen, played by Betty White.

Correction: Thelma says baby not Betty. Which leads to the altercation between Fran and Ellen.

No Room at the Inn - S2-E15

Corrected entry: In her answering machine message, Aunt Effie refers to Thelma as her cousin. If Effie is Thelma's cousin, then she is a cousin once removed to Vint, Eunice, and Ellen, and a cousin twice removed to Buzz and Sonya - not their aunt.

Correction: It's very common for people to call someone their aunt or uncle, even if they're not really related to them in this way. It's used as a term of respect and affection.

Flaming Forties - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When Thelma, Fran, and Naomi get up on stage and lip-sync to "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," they do a coordinated dance. In the real world (i.e., not a musical), three people can't decide to do a dance together on the spur of the moment, and somehow spontaneously know all the steps to a three minute dance.

Correction: It's a TV and movie convention, you just have to suspend disbelief otherwise 99% of the dance numbers in TV shows and movies would never exist.

It's a convention of musicals, where singing and dancing are fanciful or are depicted as performed by characters who are actors that have rehearsed a performance. It doesn't apply to this scene of a non-musical sitcom where the characters are aware that they are singing and dancing on the spur of the moment, and have not prepared for it in advance.
