FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In all the previous episodes, when Whitley has complained about her mother's dog, Titi, she has said the dog was a Yorkshire Terrier, but in the scene where Mr. Gaines takes Whitley back to her past, the dog in the scene is a poodle, and Marion calls it Titi, so it's supposed to be the same dog, since the Marion in the present said the dog is now old and senile.
