Bedtime Story - S2-E17

Character mistake: When all of the ladies are sharing Sophia's bed because there's been a cold snap and she has an electric blanket, Blanche mentions that her bed has never been so cold on a Saturday night. A few minutes later, Dorothy - upset that the other ladies are keeping her awake - states that she has to get up for work "very early in the morning." Dorothy is a substitute teacher, and would not have to be up for work early on a Sunday morning.

Suggested correction: Teachers often have to work the weekend to prepare for the school week.

Knowing Dorothy, she probably made the statement about having to work - to trick the others into being quiet. But, as the script goes.

Even as a long-term sub, she wouldn't have to be up early in the morning for work just because she might have papers to grade or a lesson to prepare.

Agreed. Not a mistake.

Goodbye, Mr. Gordon - S7-E15

Plot hole: At the end of this episode, the lady who was on the TV show with Blanche and Dorothy as "partners", shows up to ask Dorothy out because her and Blanche broke up. She says "I heard about you and Blanche". How could she have heard it? They just did it at the house.

New this week Suggested correction: We have no idea how long it was between their 'break up' and this scene. In fact, the scene where the woman asks Dorothy out occurs during the final credits. Maybe she saw Blanche out on her date with the guy that broke them up and asked her about it.

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)

New this week Suggested correction: This is a dream sequence while Rose is under anesthetic during heart surgery. While it doesn't look anything like ice, who's to say what should or shouldn't look real in a drug induced dream?

Blanche Delivers - S6-E1

Other mistake: When the women are talking about Becky's visit, Sophia refers to Dorothy as "The president of knocked up and single." Other episodes established that Dorothy became pregnant when dating her ex-husband, Stan, in high school. She had all of her children with Stan, so she has never been a single pregnant woman.

Suggested correction: Technically if you're not married, legally, you're single. She hadn't been dating Stan, just slept with him. In all the discussions about what happened, before her marrying Stan, she stated she went with him on a date, not that they were officially dating.

A Piece of Cake - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: When Mr Ha Ha is talking to Dorothy, the little boy is in the background waiting for his cue to smash the cake in Mr Ha Ha's face.

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.

Home Again, Rose (2) - S7-E24

Character mistake: In her first appearance, Kirsten liked Dorothy, Sophia and Blanche and said that after her visit she now understands why Rose loves living with them. In her second appearance, she heavily dislikes the three women and states that she never understood why Rose preferred living with them over moving in with her.

New this week Suggested correction: In her second appearance, Kirsten walks in while the women are laughing about something unrelated in the waiting room and her mother is in the hospital after a heart attack. Could it be possible that she's a bit upset, not thinking, and forgetting about what she said in her previous visit? In her first visit, she sees the positive, but subsequently she saw things she found questionable (she mentions things she sees like all of them getting into a car dressed strangely (it was for a play but she didn't know that)), and eventually her mother has a heart attack. She may have simply put two and two together and got five. It's a human characteristic, not a character mistake.

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?
