The Golden Girls

NBC (ended 1992)




  • Season 3 Episode 25: Mother's Day

  • Continuity:Blanche has always mentioned growing up in Georgia (near Atlanta), but in this episode, when she visits her mother in a flashback, she says "I was back in Virginia." Why would her mother be in Virginia, when she lived in GA, and was still married to Big Daddy (Blanche's father)?

  • Goof (Continuity): Blanche mentions that her daughter, Janet, has yet to call for Mother's Day. However, from previous episodes, we know that Janet is not her only child.

  • Sophia's mother is supposed to be from Sicily. Sophia is, and didn't leave until she was 20. Grandma even starts to tell a story about Sicily in 1881.Yet, there is no trace of an Italianaccent. With Sophia, there is a trace, but not with her own mother!

  • Big Daddy once said that he was married to Elizabeth Anne Bennett, but in this episode, and another where Blanche did her family tree, it's Margaret.

  • Throughout the season, Dorothy's son Michael is said to be 22 years old. However, he is a baby in the 1954 flashbacks. Making him in his 30's.

  • Grandmother Petrillo in other episodes was said to have died when Dorothy was 6, but she is alive in the flashback and seen with a fully grown Dorothy.

  • Season 3 Episode 24: Mister Terrific

  • GoofIn the part where the girls are in the kitchen talking about Blanche getting a new bed and Rose meeting Mr. Terrific, if you look behind Sophia you will see that somebody left a pink mug in the icemaker in the refrigerator. Later when they are in the kitchen again after Dorothy and Rose leave the studio, the pink mug is still there.

  • Mister Terrific says the show will have run 22 years in September, but when Fred mixes up his role as Mister Mailman instead of Mister Policeman, Mister Terrific says "16 years, Fred, get it right!" But Mister Terrific was absolutely against any changes ever being made to his show, so he had to have hired Fred when the show started.

  • Season 3 Episode 23: Mixed Blessing

  • In this episode, Blanche warns Dorothy not to interfere in her son's relationship, because Blanche herself almost lost her own daughter Becky when she butted in her personal life. Blanche is referring to the Season 3 episode Blanche's Little Girl, which aired shortly before this one. The thing is, it's odd that Blanche would regret having interfered in that particular situation, since it helped save Becky from marrying a jerk, and it actually brought Blanche even closer to her daughter.

    Correction: She was probably referring to the situation that took place four years before that episode, which was Rebecca dropping out of school to become a model. Blanche was against it and as a result, Rebecca did not speak to her until the events of "Blanche's Little Girl".

  • Michael was 29 in a episode in season 2 so how can he be 23 in season 3.

  • Stan and Dorothy were married for 38 years before getting divorced at least 3 years before this episode aired. Right now, though, their son Michael is apparently 23. Their first child was conceived out of wedlock, which would make that child at least 41. Even if their daughter Kate is the oldest, it's not possible for the two kids to be so far apart in age. This would mean that Stan and Dorothy had their second child once their oldest headed off to college, which seems incredibly far-fetched and was never indicated over the course of the series. Other episodes have led us to believe that Michael and Kate grew up together.

  • Season 3 Episode 22: Rose's Big Adventure

  • As the start of the episode the camera zooms in on the garage (in the front of the house), but in all episodes in which the garage is set, and whenever the girls enter in and out, it is located in the back of the house.

  • Vito Scotti plays Vincenzo in this episode of The Golden Girls, but returns to the show the next season to play another Italian- Dominic in the episode entitled "Foreign Exchange" (4-24). You may note that his name has changed and so there is no reference to the earlier episode or the girls having seen him once before. Many might recognize him from playing other Italians on other 80's sitcoms, Uncle Aldo Micelli on Who's the Boss?, and Dino Forenzi on Charles in Charge.

  • Season 3 Episode 21: Larceny and Old Lace

  • When Sophia says she has plenty of room to store Rocco's garbage in her bedroom, you see Sophia leading him all the way down the hall. Then later that night when Dorothy and the girls are in Sophia's room, they are in the room at the first door on the right.

  • When the girls were sharing romantic moment stories, Dorothy spoke of the night she and Stan got engaged when she downed a glass of champagne and swallowed her ring. She had to have gotten engaged at age 17. How could she be drinking champagne at a restaurant?

  • When Rocco comes in with his shopping cart full of his "life", Sophia and Rocco are shown going down the hallway as Rocco exclaims "Yes, Mrs. Cleaver!" to Dorothy.
    In the next shot, Rose goes over to pick up her diary off the coffee table, clearly showing a shot of the hallway! With a cart that big, how'd both Sophia and Rocco manage to disappear so fast?

  • Season 3 Episode 20: And Ma Makes Three

  • Sophia says she has no friends left except Lillian who thinks she's Pinky Lee. However, she's forgetting she supposedly has a friend Edith Flannary, who would die the following season, not to mention Esther Weinstock, who, while she does live in New York, is still a friend, who would also die in season four, and Sister Agnes, another character to face death in season six.

  • Season 3 Episode 18: Golden Moments (1)

  • 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!

  • Season 3 Episode 17: My Brother, My Father

  • Goof (Continuity): In this episode, it is mentioned that Dorothy and Stanley honeymooned in the Poconos, which are in Pennsylvania.  However, in Season 1's "The Return of Dorothy's Ex (a.k.a.) Stan's Return", it is said that they honeymooned in Miami; they even bought some property in Miami during said honeymoon.
