Corrected entry: When the women are talking about Becky's visit, Sophia refers to Dorothy as "The president of knocked up and single." Other episodes established that Dorothy became pregnant when dating her ex-husband, Stan, in high school. She had all of her children with Stan, so she has never been a single pregnant woman.
Corrected entry: Blanche's nanny remembers seeing Blanche in a white dress at her wedding. But in a different episode, Blanche celebrates her anniversary by trying on her RED wedding dress. She explains that even she couldn't keep a straight face in a white dress.
Corrected entry: In this episode Rose is telling the others that she was left on the doorstep of the Nylunds when she was a baby and adopted. However we know her married name not her maiden was Nylund and her maiden name was Lindstrom. She also says in this episode she was adopted as a baby but in the episode where she meets her father she says she was in an orphanage until she was 8.
Corrected entry: Many times Sophia makes references to her past in Sicily. Some of these references are real stories, others are historical references. She talks about Mussolini and Hitler with WWII several times. During the forties, Sophia was in the United States, raising her children (Dorothy was born in the late twenties to late thirties), as stated in previous episodes, she left Sicily for America in 1922.
Corrected entry: This episode is a series of flashbacks. The flashback of Blanche grabbing her towel from Dorothy when the roof leaks, Dorothy says, "I am in no mood to hear about the endless sexual escapades that have occurred up and down the Florida coastline, with only this towel between your flesh and the cold wet sand." Blanche replies with, "I brought my son Skippy home from the hospital in this towel." In the original episode, Blanche replies with, "It wasn't ALL up and down the Florida coastline."
Corrected entry: Dorothy is always talking about as being a substitute teacher. Even in the episode where she meets up with a former student, he states that he met her when "they brought in Attila the Sub." In spite of all of the reminiscing that happens in the show, there's never any mention of Dorothy ever being a full time teacher. There is, however, mention of Dorothy going to school to become a teacher. I've never known of anyone becoming a certified teacher, and then spending their entire career as a substitute teacher. Every substitute teacher I ever had was either a volunteer from the community or a retired teacher.
Corrected entry: Dorothy's friend Trudy comes to Miami for their high school reunion when there is no possible way for Dorothy to have gone to high school in Miami. It would have been in Brooklyn. In so many flashbacks she is way older than a college student, and they still live in NY.
Corrected entry: In one episode, Sophia finds an old list of things that she wanted to accomplish in her life, one of these things being to lose 200 pounds.

Corrected entry: Blanche's story about when her husband died changes through out the series. At one point, she said he was in a coma and she was getting a pedicure when he was died.

Corrected entry: Sophia decides to move in with her son Phil and his wife, but later decides not to and she feels bad for Phil's wife. But in the episode "Ebbtide's Revenge" we learn that Sophia hates Phil's widow Angela and hasn't been to see him for 20 years.
