Script inconsistency: After getting off the phone with J.J.'s doctor, Thelma says that if J.J. isn't careful, his stomach pain "could" become an ulcer. A moment later, Michael says, "I can't believe J.J. HAS a stomach ulcer." There is some obvious confusion on J.J.'s condition.
Willona: So, when are you gonna divorce your husband?
Barbara: That is none of your business.
Willona: You know, J.J. is practically a son to me. I love him very much. And when he's in pain, I make it my business.
Barbara: Hey, wait a minute. Time[out]. J.J. is a man now. And I think I know that better than you do!
Willona: You are right. You are absolutely, positively right. But he's a man for more reasons than you think.
