There Goes the Bride (1) - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: As the show begins, an outside shot of the house shows that it is night. Then it cuts to the scene of Blanche and Sophia playing Chess in the kitchen - when Blanche is complaining about Sophia's "do-overs" you can see outside the kitchen window and it is daytime.

Sisters of the Bride - S6-E14

Character mistake: Throughout much of the show, except for a few boyfriends Dorothy has had difficulties finding men to go out with her. Much of the show's humor is based around Dorothy looking unattractive and having no dates, and Sophia often desperately tried to arrange a rendezvous for her daughter. Nevertheless, in this episode, Sophia had no problem at all to find a whole bunch of men that are more than willing to go out with her, and according to the suggestive gestures Dorothy mentions, some of them apparently had a strong sexual interest in her after having seen her. They even offered their services to a cheaper price just to go out with her. Why is it so easy for Sophia to find that many men that eager to meet her daughter all of a sudden?

Feelings - S6-E6

Other mistake: Rose tells a story about her mother having undergone plastic surgery to look like Raymond Massey back when she still lived in St. Olaf. However, we see her mother in an earlier episode and she looked nothing like him.

Blanche Delivers - S6-E1

Factual error: At the end of the episode Rebecca has her baby. When the doctor cuts the cord he hands her to Rebecca all clean and spotless. Babies have a lot of blood on them when they are born.

Sophia: Rose, just remember, you're smarter than people say you are. You've got good sense, and you know what you're doing.
Rose: Oh, Sophia.
Sophia: Blanche, you're a slut.
Blanche: Oh, Sophia.

Chosen answer: Rose's husband Charlie died making love to her. There are at least 3 different ways Blanche's husband George is said to have died: 1. Blanche was getting a pedicure when he was killed. 2. He had a car accident and died. 3. He had been in a coma and died. In theory they could all be combined (he had a car accident, fell into a coma, then died while she was having a pedicure), but that's conjecture. I'm not sure how Sophia's husband Sal died.

The episode where Blanche said her husband was in a car accident, she said she was on the phone with an officer (who was eating potato chips, crunch) who was at the scene of the accident, and the officer said George was hit head on and died.

Answer: According to one episode when Dorothy was sick on the couch and Blanche was trying to get her up, Sophia brings Dorothy a hot toddy to which Dorothy says 'that's an awful lot of whisky.' Sophia says she ran out of whisky awhile ago and this one was vodka and amaretto. She said 'that should kill everything. It killed your father.'
