The Crush - S3-E10

Plot hole: Janet and Chrissy accuse Jack of making the fake BBQ telegram. However, Jack was at The Apartment the whole time, never left once until after he found out Lori was the one who made the telegram. If it was Jack who made the fake telegram, he would have had to leave The Apartment to do that.

Suggested correction: True, there's no logical way that Jack could have sent the telegram. But Janet and Chrissy were upset about it - when someone's upset, they don't always think in a logical way.

A Man About the House - S1-E1

Question: I never understood the meaning of the dialogue in a scene with the Ropers in the first episode. Stanley says to Helen something like "Too bad you're not from India - you'd be sacred there." Helen then comes back by saying "and contented." What did both of these phrases mean?

Answer: Mr. Roper was basically comparing Mrs. Roper to a cow, which is a sacred and highly revered animal among Hindus; Mrs. Roper's retort meant that she wasn't happy with her marriage or current station in life, so she'd be happier as a cow in India.
