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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Rose asks Dorothy if they teach the "3R's", which she then rattles off as 'reading, (w)riting, and rooster insemination' (a play off the phrase 'reading, and (w)riting and (a)rithmetic').
However, Roosters are male and DO the inseminating, and thusly would NEVER be inseminated themselves.
Although this is television logic, Dorothy enters the classroom and immediately starts taking role. After coming to Rose's name and after the two exchange some dialogue, Dorothy, for some reason, forgets that there's about 4-5 other students, who just apparently don't need to be accounted for, and she begins to teach.
Not only does Rose say she never graduated here, and yet say she did in another episode, in season five she mentions that after graduation she went to St. Gustav.
Rose says that she didn't graduate high school, but in the episode Nothing to Fear, but Fear Itself, Rose remembers how she gave the validictorian speech at the graduation ceremony.
Dorothy says that her father has been dead for 22 years, but in later episodes, it's 15 years.
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)?
