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

  • 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.

  • Season 4 Episode 1: Yes, We Have No Havanas

  • Dorothy says she cannot believe her ears, Sophia responds with "I know. I should've taped them back when you were seven."  But, in Season 2's "The Sisters", Rose reveals a that Dorothy had her ears pinned back when she was in college.

  • GOOF:

    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.

  • 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.
