Baby Talk - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When Iola's quilt shrinks in the dryer at the end of the episode, the individual squares do not shrink. Instead, there are simply fewer of them in each direction.

Ladies Choice - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Iola is walking across the stage to her podium for the debate, from her perspective you can see the edge of the set and some lights.

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.

April Fools - S5-E18

Plot hole: As Mama tells Iola about the April Fools' jokes the family has played on her over the years, Iola expresses surprise. Considering Iola has been Mama's friend for years and is constantly at the Harper house, it seems impossible that Iola had never heard of any of the April Fools' pranks.

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.
