The Golden Girls

And Then There Was One - S2-E16

Other mistake: When the father arrives to pick up baby Emily he states his wife was having triplets the night before. Yet baby Emily in the stroller is under 6 months old. How is her mom having triplets already?

End of the Curse - S2-E1

Other mistake: Dorothy said she's never had a mink, but her mink stole was stolen in the Break-In episode. It was also in the pilot episode when Blanch asked Dorthy if she could borrow her mink stole.

Family Affair - S2-E7

Other mistake: A major plot point is Blanche having hurt her back in her gym class, and it is established that she is having a hard time moving. Indeed when Dorothy rushes to find Rose after hearing her scream, Blanche gets up to follow her but due to her injury she moves quite slowly. However, when Dorothy reaches the door, Blanche is right behind her, even though Dorothy did not help her and Blanche cannot move as fast as Dorothy.

My Brother, My Father - S3-E17

Other mistake: It's raining outside. Dorothy comes in the house and says "it's really coming down", then shakes her coat off although it's not wet. Then Stan shows up with an umbrella that's not wet. Then Sophia's brother Angelo shows up and isn't wet either. (03:20:50 - 03:22:45)

Old Friends - S3-E1

Other mistake: Blanche asks Daisy to go to Rose's room to get the things she set out for the rummage sale. Daisy goes into the first room on the right and gets the items, including Rose's teddy bear. Blanche gives it to her for helping out. Rose comes home, goes to her room and comes back asking where her bear is. Problem is, Rose's room is at the end of the hall on the left.

Ebb Tide - S5-E11

Other mistake: When Blanche gets her citrus plate in the mail, she receives it in a box. She takes it from the mailman and it shows a normally taped up package, yet she just lifts open the flaps like they aren't even sealed.

Show generally

Other mistake: In the opening scene showing the outside of the house, the garage and driveway are on the left side of the house. In "End of the Curse," the girls raise minks in the garage, which is accessed from the back corner of the kitchen, thus the garage is actually on the opposite side of the house. Furthermore there are four large bedrooms and at least one large bathroom down the hallway. The hallway shoots off the living room at an angle. There is not enough room to fit all those rooms between the supposed garage and the kitchen and the lanai; all of the rooms would overlap one another. Lastly, the lanai seems to be surrounded on three sides by the house (as is typical of a lanai) but the hallway leading to the lanai, and the way the girls enter from the left, would put it on the very front corner, and surrounded by nothing.

Love Me Tender - S4-E14

Other mistake: The first time they are in the house, Blanche says she is going to show them make up tricks in her bed room and the two girls go to her bedroom without asking where it is or which one it was while Blanche was still talking.

The Audit - S3-E10

Other mistake: Towards the end of the episode, Stan gives Dorothy a box with the ring in it she pawned earlier. But she says "my ring!" before even opening it - she had no clue it was that same ring rather than a different one.

One For the Money - S3-E2

Other mistake: In the 1954 flashback scene, it is Dorothy's 10-year anniversary, so she got married in 1944. In another episode, Dorothy said Stan impregnated her in the back seat of a car by saying he's going to the Korean War, which began in 1950. Also, viewers know that Dorothy went to college. A pregnant newlywed in 1944 with a husband off to war would not have gone to college but stayed home awaiting the birth of her child. And in 1945, after the war, she would have been a housewife, not a college student.

Suggested correction: First off, I don't remember the show every showing or saying Stan did serve in the military. Dorothy said the only reason she went out with him was because he claimed he was being shipped off to Korea and would probably die. Stan was shown not to be faithful and probably not very trustworthy. But there's no reason an intelligent woman with a child could go to college even if her husband was in the military.

Whose Face is This, Anyway? - S2-E20

Other mistake: In Season 2 Episode 8: Vacation, Dorothy let it slip that Rose had a nose job and never mentioned her own plastic surgery. However, here Rose says that she hates plastic surgery and Dorothy admits that she got her eyes done. (00:14:35 - 00:15:04)

Old Boyfriends - S7-E14

Other mistake: Rose and Blanche are having dinner out on the patio with Rose's ex Thor. He says he has to use the restroom - the bathroom is on the other side of the house down the hall, but he's back in 20 seconds.

Feelings - S6-E6

Other mistake: Rose tells a story about her mother having undergone plastic surgery to look like Raymond Massey back when she still lived in St. Olaf. However, we see her mother in an earlier episode and she looked nothing like him.

Fiddler on the Ropes - S4-E18

Other mistake: There's a lot of talk about Pepe hurting his hands during his last boxing match. Unless there's something I'm missing, boxing gloves should provide adequate protection.

Miles to Go - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: In this episode Rose's boyfriend Miles is revealed to be in the witness protection program and has not had any contact with people from his past including family. However, in season 5, episode 15 his daughter visited and didn't approve of Rose.

Suggested correction: Actually, Bea Arthur carving the exclamation point is quite obviously not true. In most episodes you can see identical exclamation points on the wood panelling around the back of the living room. It's just a notch in manufacturing.

More trivia for The Golden Girls

Chosen answer: Rose's husband Charlie died making love to her. There are at least 3 different ways Blanche's husband George is said to have died: 1. Blanche was getting a pedicure when he was killed. 2. He had a car accident and died. 3. He had been in a coma and died. In theory they could all be combined (he had a car accident, fell into a coma, then died while she was having a pedicure), but that's conjecture. I'm not sure how Sophia's husband Sal died.

The episode where Blanche said her husband was in a car accident, she said she was on the phone with an officer (who was eating potato chips, crunch) who was at the scene of the accident, and the officer said George was hit head on and died.

Answer: According to one episode when Dorothy was sick on the couch and Blanche was trying to get her up, Sophia brings Dorothy a hot toddy to which Dorothy says 'that's an awful lot of whisky.' Sophia says she ran out of whisky awhile ago and this one was vodka and amaretto. She said 'that should kill everything. It killed your father.'
