    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Goof: Helen also says her sister has 2 kids but when Casey (the name of her sister when she becomes a regular in season 6) arrives, she never had any kids with her husband Stewart.

      • Commentary/Observation:The entire series is filled with contradictions regarding Fay and her husbands. In "Bye George" she says that one George is above ground in a vault. Perhaps we should just assume that Fay is getting a bit forgetful in her old age and is having a lot of trouble keeping the details straight.

      • Goof: The gang scatters the ashes of one of Fay's husbands, but in the pilot episode, Fay said that she buried all three of her husbands.

      • Goof: Helen refers to her only sibling as "Lorraine" in this episode, but in season 6, when her sister comes to live with her, her name is Casey, not Lorraine.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • At Fay's house, Joe mentions a commercial on the Japanese television station that "that lady" can't get up in Japan, either. This references the infamous MedicAlert bracelet commercial that was airing at the time, which featured the tag line, "I've fallen and I can't get up."
