    This episode was the bomb! It rocked! Dorothy very happily tells Blanche that she is a "Yankee"... A "Yankee doodle!" Haha! Rose's dreams about Captain Kangaroo was pretty funny. I enjoyed this episode, especially when Rose gets mad at Barbara for lying to the Cheeseman. Haha, it was pretty funny. Sophia losing her glasses was pretty good. The sunglasses she wore were pretty cool... Considering she couldn't see in them. Rose's stupidity was hilarious, as always. Betty White is a very good actress and is excellent in fitting right into the role. Samuel Plankmaker is Miles' new Amish name. Haha, this is probably one of The Golden Girl's best seasons yet, especially when Blanche thinks Miles is a rabbi. He says he wanted to play a trick on them, and Sophia says, "Silly Rabbi, tricks are for kids."moreless
  • Miles turns out to be a completely different person.

    I don't like what the writers did with Miles. Not only did Harold Gould play a different character in Season One, and now after he comes back to play Miles we learn that he's someone completely different. It seems very confusing and it was such a mean thing to do to Rose. This was not a favorite of mine.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goof (Continuity):In this episode, Miles returns to Miami. Rose blows his Witness Protection cover by calling him Miles, but in "Miles to Go", she learns his real name is Nicholas Carbone and calls him "Nick".

    • Goof: When Dorothy and Blanche are going through her family trivia, it is revealed that Blanche's great-great-grandmother is not Southern. However, later in the episode, when Blanche is telling her family tree, she stops after her mother and father (meaning her grandparents), claiming she cannot go on, then states "I'm a Feldman". How could she forget that this part of the family tree doesn't come until later?

    • Goof (Continuity): Blanche says that she is the daughter of Samantha Roquet of Shreveport, but in the episode "Big Daddy", Big Daddy says that his wife's (and Blanche's mother) name was "Elizabeth Ann". How could her name have changed from Elizabeth Ann toSamantha?

    • It seems odd than only Sophia recognized the CheeseMan when all four women saw him on TV multiple times in the episode "Miles to Go"

    • When Sophia loses her glasses she starts wearing a prescription pair of Sal's sunglasses. In the flashbacks featuring her husband Salvadore, he never wore glasses.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Dorothy: Ma, put down the Binoculars.
      Sophia: No, I need them I lost my glasses, and i'm not supposed to drive without them.
      Dorothy: Let's analyze this for a moment. Your what now, about 200 years old?
      Sophia: About...
      Dorothy: You have no license, your not allowed to drive.
      Sophia: Curses!!

    • (Sophia comes into the Living room, she watches TV thru Binoculars then gets up to leave.)
      Sophia: Well i'm off.
      Dorothy: That would be my Diagnosis.

    • Miles: I was hoping to play a trick on you.
      Sophia: Silly Rabbi, Trix are for kids.

    • Blanche: I once had seven gentlemen callers in one evening.
      Dorothy: I'm just thinking out loud here but isn't the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta?
      Blanche: Coincidence.

    • Rose: (to Barbara, after she pulls a gun on Karl "the Cheeseman") You told us you didn't have a gun! You lied!
      Barbara: To a bad guy, Rose. It's okay to lie to a bad guy.
      Rose: (turning to Blanche and Dorothy) You see! There's so much that we as the public don't know!

    • Rose: I do have a dream that Karl and Miles are both in!
      Blanche: (waiting eagerly for the details) And?
      Rose: (giggling and blushing) Okay...and Captain Kangaroo!

  • NOTES (3)

    • Kristy McNichol and Rue McClanahan both starred together in the CBS TV-movie trilogy Children of the Bride, Baby of the Bride and Mother of the Bride.

    • Miles returns from the Witness Protection in this episode, this brings Miles back into the show but they completely changed history. In the episode "Miles to Go", Miles reveals to be Nicolas Carbone, an accountant hiding out. When the Cheeseman, his attacker, reveals to be alive Nicolas/Miles is sent away under yet another identity, Samuel Plankmaker. However, this episode writes out his real life as Nicolas and pretends he was born 'Miles Webber' and was forced to leave that life behind and is now returning to his true identity.

    • Kristy McNichol (Barbara Weston) crosses over from Empty Nest in this episode.
