High Anxiety - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: In this episode Rose says her cat Fluffy died (as a lie) and Dorothy says "Rose, you've never had a cat, you're allergic." When Blanche and Rose first meet she is holding a cat named Mr. Peepers, and looking for a place she and the cat can live. Another episode she says she had a cat named Lindstrom Lindstrom.

Suggested correction: After first meeting Blanche at the supermarket, Rose gave Mr. Peepers to a boy there. Dorothy could actually mean that Rose has never owned a cat for as long as Dorothy has known her. Regarding the allergies, people can be allergic to some cats, but not others. Or they will choose to live with a cat despite the allergies.

In another episode, Rose mentions her dog Rusty saved the family cat from a fire so she definitely lived with a cat for longer.

You Gotta Have Hope - S4-E17

Character mistake: In the scene in the kitchen in which Rose says that Bob Hope could be her father, she tells Dorothy and Blanche that Gunter and Alma Nylund are her adoptive parents. Nylund, however, was her husband Charlie's last name, making it Rose's married name and not her maiden name. Nylund was not her adoptive parents' name.

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.

Brother, Can You Spare That Jacket? - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, the girls regroup after looking for the winning scratch-off ticket and Blanche says she found it. At that moment, she is not holding her purse, however in the very next shot, after the priest enters the room, she's suddenly holding her purse again without the girls ever having moved from their spots.

Yes, We Have No Havanas - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At Fidel's funeral, Sophia talks about him awakening feelings that she had not felt in 35 years. But earlier in the episode, Dorothy said that her father/Sophia's husband has been dead for 27 years. Also earlier, Sophia claimed to have showered with a man 22 years ago.

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.

Rob245

Blanche: This is strictly off the record but Dirk is nearly five years younger than I am.
Dorothy: In what, Blanche, dog years?

Show generally

Question: The question "How do the girls' husbands, other than Dorothy's, die?" was answered that in theory, Blanche's husband could have had a car wreck, fallen into a coma, and died while she was getting a pedicure. This is not true. Blanche stated that when George came back to her in a dream, she remembered tripping over his shoe on her way to answer the phone, thus finding out that George had died in a car wreck. Doesn't this prove that the "he had a wreck, fell into a coma, and then died during Blanche's pedicure", theory is out?

Countryrunner

Chosen answer: Yes, you are correct, as stated, In one episode Blanche said he had been in a coma for days, in the episode where she's in her dream, she said "The day you died ... The police told me you had been in an accident." Thus the original answers theory is wrong. If he had been in the accident the day he died he could not have been in a coma for days.
