A Piece of Cake - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, when Sofia's cake is done, she takes it out of the hot oven using potholders. Less than a minute later, when the men start to conga, you can see her discard the potholders and pick it up with her bare hands. It is a glass pan and still would have been much too hot to hold.

In a Bed of Rose's - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Blanche was talking about how she learned of her late husband, George's, death. She said she got the phone call late at night and the officer on the phone (chewing potato chips), told her that her husband was killed instantly in a accident. But in another episode, Sophia made a comment about how Blanche was getting a pedicure while her husband was dying in the hospital. Blanche admitted to this, so it was not one of Sophia's smart remarks.

Bringing Up Baby - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: In this episode Blanche says she has had 4 children, but she has never owned a Mercedes.
