The Golden Girls

Rose's Big Adventure - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: In this episode Dorothy and Blanche are awakened by a stench coming from the kitchen. After they go to inspect, we see that Rose is making some sort of Krispies treat. As you see her carry the plate to offer Dorothy and Blanch one, you can see that the plate is empty. And once they all start to eat them you can easily see that none of them are actually picking anything up and putting in their mouths.

One For the Money - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: In the dance off scene when Rose is doing cartwheels, you can see it's Betty White's stunt double.

Room 7 - S7-E11

Revealing mistake: When Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia are driving on the interstate, Rose is singing. Dorothy slams on the brakes, stops, and says, "Get out, Rose." But the car that has passed the camera's view only has the driver in it.

Break-In - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: Dorothy is putting wet washcloths on Blanche's forehead. But if you look in the bowl on the table, there is no water in it at all. And when Dorothy wrings out the washcloth, only a tiny bit of water comes out. (03:05:00)

The Housekeeper - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: Dorothy is cooking on the grill in the backyard. Problem is the grill isn't really "cooking" the food. No smoke, no sizzling. And the food is hard like it's frozen solid.

Bringing Up Baby - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: When Dorothy and Blanche are in Rose's room, look at Baby. Its very obvious its just a stuffed toy pig. You can tell by the fluffy skin, the unnatural ear movement, and the covers would be moving up and down as its breathing. You can really tell its fake when Rose gets up off her bed. (01:08:45 - 01:10:25)

Home Again, Rose (2) - S7-E24

Revealing mistake: In the scene with Rose, Dorothy and Blanche, their "heads" are on the table with ice around them. You can see it's just clear jello. Another clue being it doesn't melt at all. (02:17:05)

And Then There Was One - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: When Rose and Dorothy unpack the groceries, Dorothy starts to open the egg carton. It tilts backwards revealing an empty carton. You can also tell it's empty when she carries it to the fridge.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Throughout the entire series every time someone is cooking on the stove there's never any steam coming from the cookware. Also looking at the burners, it's an electric oven yet the burners are never orange indicating they never really "cook" food at all.

A Piece of Cake - S2-E25

Suggested correction: In the context of the story, he may have simply decided to use good manners and wait until the conversation was finished. Some parents actually teach their kids not to interrupt when adults are talking. Maybe not as much today, but at the time this was filmed it was still pretty common.

Vacation - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: The "sand" on the beach of the supposedly lonely island Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and the three men stranded on is one solid cloth made of a rubber-like material. It wobbles and bends whenever a character's feet are on-screen.

Dorothy's New Friend - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: Dorothy brings out a pot of coffee and pours it into cups. When her friend Barbara is leaving, Dorothy is holding on to the "hot" coffee pot like it's not even hot. (00:07:50)

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?

Rose: Like we say in St. Olaf, Christmas without fruitcake is like St. Sigmund's Day without the headless boy.
