Sophia claims that Phil and his wife have 6 kids, but in "A Little Romance", it is mentioned that there are 10 kids.
In this episode, Sophia says that her daughter in law is named Sally. However; in the episode with his funeral, her name is Angela.
On the episode, "Ebbtide's Revenge", when Phil dies, Blanche asks about this and Sophia responds that she calls Angela, "Big Sally", because Sophia knows that Angela hates it!
Rose: See Sophia, we have great times together.
Blanche: And it just won't be the same without you. Sophia!
Sophia: Hey, this isn't easy for me either, but I have to do what I have to do....what is it I have to do?
Dorothy: Oh, do you know how many problems we have solved over a cheese cake at this kitchen table?
Rose: No Dorothy, exactly how many?
Dorothy: 147 Rose!
Dorothy: Oh Rose, have you been feeding those strays again?
Rose: I can't help it Dorothy. I heard them howling and moaning all night. How do you ignore something like that?
Dorothy: I'm getting used to it. You know, my room's next to Blanche's.

Dorothy: What smells so awful?
Rose: It's a new fragrance I'm wearing.
Dorothy: I'm almost sure that I don't have to ask this, but you are aware that toilet water comes in a bottle?
(Sophia is moving out to help her son Phil.)

Sophia: You've always been able to take care of yourself. You don't need me.
