Clinton Avenue Memoirs - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: The front door of Sophia's former apartment is on the right wall, under the stairs. The fireplace is on the far back wall to the left, next to the foot of the stairs. But in the earlier episode, "A Piece of Cake", the front door is next to the stairs, there is no fireplace, and Sophia's bedroom door is where the front door is in "Clinton Avenue Memoirs".

All That Jazz - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Dorothy's son, Michael, is said to be thirty years old. When he married his wife in the season 3 episode "Mixed Blessings", he was said to be 23.

Ebb Tide - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: At Big Daddy's (Blanche's father) funeral/passing, Blanche shows Dorothy around her childhood home but it was revealed in season 1 episode 24 that Big Daddy had sold the property to pay for a music tour and to escape the constant reminder of his late wife, the house was named Twin oaks.

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.

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

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.'
