The Golden Girls

NBC (ended 1992)




  • Season 1 Episode 25: The Way We Met

  • Sophia comes in and scares the dickens out of the girls by yielding a giant knife. How did she get this knife? The episode starts with Rose entering the dark kitchen and no one being awake. Did Sophia somehow anticipate they'd be up all night, run into the kitchen beforehand to grab a weapon and plan her surprise?

  • In this episode Rose is overly honest, and is proud of it, but in the season four premiere, Rose is excited about cheating a restaurant out of a cake.

  • The series flashbacks to when Dorothy came to look at the house with Sophia. However, Sophia looks nothing like she did in the Pilot.

  • We learn in this episode that Blanche had two roommates prior to Rose and Dorothy. Blanche's former roommates she described as two old ladies and "sticks-in-the-mud" whom she eventually kicked out.

  • When the girls are getting their groceries rang up at the market, the cashier rings up the same bottle of Windex twice before Rose tells her she put in the wrong price.

  • Season 1 Episode 24: Big Daddy

  • In this episode Big Daddy says life is too short not to forgive his favorite little girl.  However, in "Transplant", Blanche remembers how much her parents favored Virginia the most and how she was so very neglected.  Quite a change.

  • Blanche seems to love Big Daddy very much, while mourning how hard it was for him when they both lost her mother. However, in Season Four, Blanche holds nothing back, calling her family "trash."

  • Big Daddy sells the plantation (Hollingsworth Manor) in this episode, however, in the finale episode, One Flew Out of the Cuckoo's Nest part(1) & part 2, Blanche talks about Dorothy moving into Hollingsworth Manor when she marries Blanche's uncle, Lucas.

    Lucas could have bought the plantation from Big Daddy or after his death, or there could be 2 Hollingsworth Manor

  • Big Daddy and Blanche refer to their plantation as Twin Oaks in this episode; in later ones, it's always referred to as simply Hollingsworth Manor.

  • Season 1 Episode 23: Blind Ambitions

  • In the opening scene Rose mistakenly calls her home town St. Olafs (plural) instead of simply St. Olaf.

  • This is one of many errors the show makes. Rose tells the girls that she lived in an orphanage until she was 8, at which point she was adopted by the Lindstroms. Yet, in this episode, Lily reminds Rose of something that had occurred while Rose was 6.

  • Time Index 7:00 and during the entire scene. When Lily is cooking and it catches fire, you can clearly see there is no heat lighting the electric burners.

  • Polly Holliday is better known for her role as Flo on the 1970's sitcom Alice and its spin-off, Flo.

  • At the end of the episode in the airport, the flight attendant is thanking passengers for flying Air Florida. This isn't possible as Air Florida folded in 1984, almost 2 years before this episode was first aired.

  • In the beginning of the episode when Dorothy is grilling steaks, why is there not even a hint of smoke?

  • Season 1 Episode 22: Job Hunting

  • Continuity error: Dorothy reveals here that she first had sex with Stan after he claimed he was being shipped to Korea for the war. That war lasted 1950-1953, thus placing their first sexual encounter somewhere in that range. However, the series began in 1985 with Dorothy having been divorced for two years after 38 years of marriage. She married Stan after becoming pregnant. This means that she would have already had sex with Stan, become pregnant, and got married no later than 1945.

  • Blanche says she lost it with some guy whose name escapes her but apparently the name starts with a 'B,' and the night began under a dogwood tree. However, at some point in either season six or seven, Blanche says she lost it in a bayou.

  • By episode's end, Rose reveals she is now a waitress at the Fountain Rock Coffee Shop. However, the next time her job is brought to light, she is once again a grief counselor.

  • Rose states that her first night with Charlie was the first time she had ever "seen" a man. However, in season seven, when Blanche asks Rose how many men she'd brought to "climax" without having gone "all the way," Rose says that in one year she had fifty-six boyfriends.

  • This is one of the few episodes in which the kitchen table doesn't have a tablecloth draped on it.
