When Blanche tries to convince Dorothy to let her keep the car, she mentions she would give Dorothy one of her sons. She mentions, Biff, Doug and Skippy. Not only does she later mention a son Matthew, but the number of children she has is sometimes unknown. If this episode is believed as truth, that would mean Blanche six children. Biff, Doug, Skippy, Matthew, Janet and Rebecca.
When Sophia walks out the front door without her glasses, a car horn honks two seconds after she crosses the threshold, and she comes back inside claiming that she had an encounter with a Buick. However, it is evident from the opening shot of the girls' home that the front door is at least twenty yards from the street and it would have taken Sophia much longer than to get anywhere near street traffic.
In this episode, Sophia reveals the address of the girls' home as 6151 Richmond Street.
In this episode Blanche will do anything to keep the Mercedes! She says to Dorothy... I'll give you one of my sons... I have four children I've never had a Mercedes... which one do you want Biff, Doug, Skippy? If Blanche has four children how can she have 3 sons? We know she has 2 daughters which we've seen in other episodes... Rebecca and Janet.
Response: She said she has had four sons, not four children.
When the lawyer arrives with "Baby" he say that it is a him although when the pig is turned with its behind to the screen it is, in fact, a sow [female pig].
The ex-prisoner who interviewed for the housekeeping position right before Marguerite said that she had just been released from San Quentin State Prison in California. San Quentin has not had female inmates housed there since 1932, when the California Institution for Women was built.
The girls are often depicted as not having the most financial security in the world, but yet somehow they are able to afford a housekeeper.
Goof (Continuity): Rose claims that the oldest niece must give the speech at a relative's funeral and claims she is the oldest niece. But, in "Blind Ambitions", it seems as though her sister, Lily, is older than Rose. Lily reminds Rose of something that happened when she (Rose) was 6.
Sophia says in 1931 her and Sal were newlyweds and were married for 52 years. This would mean they were married until 1983. However, in several different stories he's been dead for over 20 years.
Not only does Rose say she graduated here, but attending the ceremony were several colorful characters. Fat Jerry. Old & Young Yohansen, but most notably, Big & Little Gustaf. In other episodes, Rose had an Uncle Gustaf. At one point he was a coal miner, and at another point he committed suicide by hanging in the barn.
In this episode Dorothy is afraid of flying while in another episode Blanche mentions that she is afraid of flying. Dorothy apparently got over her fear pretty easily when, just 3 months later, the girls flew across the country to LA to "Grab That Dough" and Dorothy apparently had no qualms about it.
Notice in this episode, Rose says she read a speech at her high school graduation, because she was validictorian. However, in the episode "Yes, We Have No Havanas", she has to take a history class taught by Dorothy, in order to recieve her high school diploma, because an illness made her miss her graduation.
Trivia: During Rose's dream, you can see her picture with two other people. These two other people are Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin (Karl Marx is known for creating Communism, while Lenin is known for bringing it to Russia/the USSR.).
Blanche is appalled that this man is not telling the truth because it paints her in a bad light. Well, Blanche is sometimes quite a stranger to the truth. She lies about her age, the amount of men she's been with, and she lies to the IRS about the fact that she houses the ladies and charges them rent. That makes Blanche quite the liar herself.
Goof: Rose mentions that in order to get her promotion, she has to become bilingual (speaking two languages), and begins taking Spanish classes. However, as we have seen from many other episodes, Rose is bilingual. She speaks English and Norwegian. If she also spoke Spanish, she would become trilingual, (three languages).
Dorothy says here she is, flat broke. If she's flat broke, a)how can she afford the rent Blanche charages? and b)how on earth can she afford the elegant gown she buys for the museum fundraiser in "Charlie's Buddy?"
Rose mentions here that she studied Latin, albeit it's Pig Latin, but we've been told several different times that Rose never graduated.
Continuity Error: Blanche's character in this episode is in direct conflict with her character in a first season episode, "Adult Education." In that episode, she was offended at her teacher's suggestion that she sleep with him in order to get an A in his class, even reporting him to the dean. In this episode, however, she promises to sleep with the teacher in order to get the answers to a test.
Dorothy says that the ladies have been living together for 5 years, which would mean, Dorothy, Rose and Blanche have been living together since 1983, and Sophia joined them two years later in the Pilot in 1985. Yet in a season five episode Dorothy tells Blanche that she's been putting up with her selfishness for five years. Another inconsistency.
