I'm afraid there's nothing listed for this season. Add something here!

Safety First - S2-E6

Factual error: When Helen tells Laura she's trying to quit all the pills that she takes to deal with Gordon, she starts listing them off. "The Valium, the Diazepam, the Librium..." Valium and Diazepam are the same thing. (Valium's the brand, Diazepam's the generic). (00:08:20)

Suggested correction: And Helen might not know that and think they are different pills.

Anyone on those pills knows exactly what they are.


Usually true in real life but this show exaggerates things for comedy. The writers probably genuinely made the mistake but it is still plausible that Helen is that messed up.

If you're on these meds, you know this stuff. Like how people on Percocet know that its generic is Oxycodone.
