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. And then she told a story about how she tripped over one of his shoes when she got the call that he was in a car accident and had been killed.mrsjaybubba
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.JazzSinger
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 Some of these references are real stories, others are historical references.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: 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. In another episode, Sophia was trying to gain 1 pound because she weighed 99 pounds instead of 100 pounds, and she had said that she always weighed 100 pounds, that her weight has never changed.
