In this episode, Dorothy says that her college major was American History. When playing "The Golden Girls Trivia Game" on lifetimetv.com, the correct answer to the question "What was Dorothy's college major" is World History.
Rose's long-departed, yet beloved, dog was named Rusty. She is quite fond of telling the story of Rusty's heroic death after he saved her family from a fire.
Goof:Dorothy states that she was seventeen in the 11th grade, while her teacher, Mr. Gordon, was twenty-three. However, she also states that now Mr. Gordon is in his 70s and is ancient. Dorothy is not near her 70s in this episode, so her math may be a little off.
Sophia's calendar from 1984 marks the day she escaped from Shady Pines. However, Sophia escaped in 1985, after the home burned down.
James T Callahan plays Dorothy's high school teacher despite being younger than actress Beatrice Arthur.
James Callahan was a drama teacher at Beverly Hills High School prior to becoming an actor full time.
This is the second time Sophia was involved in a situation that was prompted by someone's impending death. (The other was the episode where Sophia's friend wanted her to assist with the friend's suicide.)
The ring Sophia has that she got from the pope has a large red jem in the middle.
When Miles asks Rose if she's ever made love outdoors, Rose says "just once" and proceeds to tell a story about Mt. Pushover in St. Olaf, which was a make-out point. However, in another episode Rose tells of dressing up as a sandwich in a St. Olaf parade with Charlie, forgetting to put the meat in between them, and then conceiving Kirsten.
Goof: Rose tells an eerie story about a cow that was awarded custody of the car because Charlie tried to be funny with his will, and how she enjoyed it when it was made into a steak. However, in Season Six's "Henny Penny, Straight -- No Chaser," Rose can't fathom an animal being harmed, let alone killed.
Goof:Sophia admits to having hoarded checks from Phil and Gloria all these years. However, in several episodes Sophia states that Phil lives in a trailer park and is not financially stable. Where would he find the money to send her these checks?
When Sophia supposedly "jumps" off the roof at Grammie's plantation, her stunt dummy looses its wig in the trees.
When Sophia passes out at the beginning of the episode, she is supposedly choking on something. When she wakes up, however, she starts coughing violently--but you can totally tell that there was nothing stuck in her throat, because nothing comes up.
On Sophia's list of things to do, her first thing is to lose 200 pounds. However, in "Rites of Spring" Sophia declares she has never been under 99 pounds. Also, if this episode were believed to be true, then it would totally discredit the episode in which Sophia states that her vanity of her beauty caused her to try and get the new beautiful girl in the village to move away so the men could continue fighting over her.
The man who plays Guido Spirelli (Phil Leeds) when Sophia is in Italy, also appeared as a waiter in the Second Season of Maude in the episode "Music Hath Charms." This is pretty rare that actors would reunite almost 20 years later (although Guido is never seen with Dorothy in this episode of The Golden Girls)
In this episode if you notice when Miles and Rose are in the restaurant as they flash back and forth to Rose, first her pocketbook strap is on her shoulder then it's off then it's on...
Blanche reveals her phone number is 555-E-A-S-Y. That would make her phone number 555-3279.
When Sophia has both Gloria and Dorothy by her side, she says something like "My two little girls...." and raises both of their arms. All three begin to sit on the couch when it cuts to a shot of Blanche. But when it cuts back to Sophia, Gloria, and Dorothy, they repeat the same action of beginning to sit on the couch.
In one of Sophia's flashbacks, she remembers how Dorothy tells her she was pregnant. However, in Season 3's "Brotherly Love", she claims that Dorothy didn't tell her until 4 days after she (Dorothy) and Stan were married.
