    Notes (5)

    • On The Golden Girls, Blanche mentioned her many arrests in Chattanooga and how the sheriff from the city "still writes." Perhaps she was arrested when visiting her brother.

    • After almost eight years, this is the first mention of Blanche's brother Tad.

    • Ned Beatty, is better know for his reoccurring role as Dan's father from Roseanne.

    • This episode first aired on Lifetime on August 30, 2005.

    • After this episode, CBS canceled the show.

    Trivia (6)

    • The majority of the cast say "Chattanooga" the wrong way. The correct pronunciation for the town in "CHATTAnooga". The only one who says it correctly is Ned Beatty, who filmed Deliverance just miles from the town in Ocoee, Tennessee.

    • In this episode, Chuy reveals that he appeared in an X-rated film.

    • In this episode, Roland reveals that he's a huge fan of Helen Reddy's.

    • In this episode, Sophia reveals that her doctor expected her to deliver twins when she was pregnant with Dorothy.

    • In this episode, it's hinted at that Rose may really be from outer space... which could explain why she had the opportunity to see a UFO in an episode of "The Golden Girls."
