The Golden Girls

NBC (ended 1992)




  • Season 4 Episode 7: Sophia's Wedding (2)

  • When the fire alarm sounds in the beginning, Rose and Blanche run past the living room into the kitchen to call the fire department. However, it would have been quicker, easier, and smarter to use the phone in the living room.

  • As Dorothy is taking a shower, Sophia knocks on the bathroom door, steps in, and Dorothy lets her know that she'll be out in a minute. After about five seconds, Max walks into the bathroom thinking that Sophia is in the shower. When he realizes his mistake, he claims that he thought Sophia was in the shower. Wouldn't Max and Sophia have seen each other outside in the hall within such a short timespan?

  • When Dorothy answers the phone from the fire department letting her know that Max and Sophia's pizza/knish stand has burned down, the conversation lasts no more than five seconds! "Hello? What?! Oh, we'll be right there!" And that's it!

  • It is obvious that the scene where Dorothy and Max end up in the shower together is just the actors standing in a shower stall. First of all, there is no water running. And second when Dorothy leaves the shower after Max enters her hair is still perfectly coiffed and DRY.

  • Season 4 Episode 6: Sophia's Wedding (1)

  • In season three Sophia also mentions another friend, Gladys Weinstock. It's hard to believe she has two friends, both named Weinstock.

  • Sophia mentions that she and Esther Weinstock grew up together. Sophia grew up in Sicily. It's hard to believe that they came to America together.

  • Quentin Tarantino, then unknown, makes an appearance on The Golden Girls as an Elvis impersonator in the first half of this two part episode.

  • Max claims that after he took the blame for gambling all the money away, that Sal felt so guilty he never gambled again. But in "All Bets are Off", Sophia claims he was a gambler until the end, in fact she said his last words were "Ten bucks says I don't need this oxygen tank."

  • Rose asked Dorothy how does it feel when you faint she never did it before that's not true because in the second season episode, "End of the Curse" she fainted when she thought Blanche was pregant

  • Season 4 Episode 5: Bang the Drum, Stanley

  • In an earlier episode Sophia says lying is a sin and will send you straight to hell. Well, apparently she has her bags packed and ready to go, because what does she call what she's doing here?

  • Dorothy tells Stan it took 12 seconds and she wound up 3 months pregnant at her wedding. In "Job Hunting", Dorothy says it only took 3 seconds.

  • Season 4 Episode 4: Yokel Hero

  • The length of time it would take to get to "St. Olaf, MN" is very dramatically portrayed in this episode.  While on the plane, Rose says that there isn't any reason why they shouldn't be in St. Olaf in a couple of days (48 hours).  In reality, if one were to fly from Miami to Minnesota, you would most likely go to the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport.  From that point the farthest point to anywhere in Minnesota would only be about 4 hours by car.  So, the fact that Rose says it will take 2 days makes no geographical sense at all.

  • Rose says Woman of the Year is the town's highest honor. Yet in "Ladies of the Evening" Butter Queen is St. Olaf's highest honor. Apparently in St. Olaf you have to be honest and know how to churn butter equally.

  • In season three Dorothy is terrified and on the verge of a heart attack at the thought of flying on a big jetliner, but apparently that fear has vanished, and she has no trouble flying on a plane much less safe than that.

  • The girls are complaining about the horrible heat wave in this episode, and yet they're all wearing pants and long sleeves!

  • Rose's St. Olaf Woman of the Year trophy was a milk chocolate statue.

  • Season 4 Episode 3: The One That Got Away

  • After Dorothy comments that people can sometimes lose their looks, Sophia says except in Sicily because the whole town sees to it; and that's why the family was so glad when Dorothy was born because they didn't need all of those people bothering them all the time. However, Dorothy wasn't born in Sicily, she was born in Brooklyn.

  • In the final scene, Rose mentions that there are eight children in her familiy. However, the only ones ever mentioned are Lily, Holly, and in this episode, Michael.

  • Season 4 Episode 2: The Days and Nights of So...

  • In this episode, Blanche, Dorothy and Rose play a board game that seems to be similar to Trivial Pursuit.  However, the cards they read off of appear to be the yellow and orange cards of a Monopoly game while the board itself closely resembles that of the game Sorry.

  • Dorothy claims that Sophia's mother lived to be 94 years old, and that in 1952, she went into politics. Later, though, Dorothy says that Sophia's mother was 94 years old when Dorothy was six, implying that Dorothy was six years old when her grandmother died. Dorothy was born in 1929 (as stated in season 7), meaning her grandmother died in the mid-1930s, and therefore couldn't possibly have lived to see 1952. Also, a flashback in the earlier season three episode "Mother's Day" features Sophia's mother existing at the same time as a full-grown Dorothy.
