** This is probably an example of TruthInTelevision, though: a lot of people who recover from addictions go on to live fully functional, substance-free lives; Rose's line about it being a lifelong condition is largely because drug addicts never fully physically become independent of them, but can remain free using self-control techniques.

* KavorkaMan: He's middle-aged, bald, and more than a little sleazy, but he doesn't seem to have any problem attracting young co-eds.

* KavorkaMan: He's middle-aged, bald, and more than a little sleazy, but he doesn't seem to have any problem attracting young co-eds. Although, if Dorothy is to be believed, him being more than a little generous with his credit cards may have something to do with that...

** There were 2 episodes from the 1st season where she was a victim of sexual harassment. The 1st one was by a man Dorothy was dating who Blanche was attracted to begin with which nearly caused the end of Dorothy and Blanche's friendship. The 2nd one was by a college professor after Blanche asked for help because she was trying to pass a course so she could get a job at a museum.

** It should be mentioned however, that Sophia wasn't really as much ashamed of Phil wearing women's clothes as she was ashamed of herself for making him wear Dorothy's hand-me-downs (money was VERY tight) which started the whole thing. She blamed herself for the whole thing and thought she screwed him up.
* MamaBear: Age be damned, you'd better not threaten her kids, Biological or otherwise.

** During one episode, she also notes that she embellishes her conquests a great deal. When asked if that was true, however, she responded with "Maybe it is and maybe it isn't," rendering this ambiguous.

AlterKocker: Sophia Petrillo was supposed to be a Sicilian Catholic. Estelle Getty played her with many stereotypical Jewish New York traits. Her husband Salvatore was played the same way by Sid Melton, in a very BorschtBelt comedian style. This actually became a CastingGag as the series went on- Sophia's Italian acquaintances were mostly played by Jewish actors.

(In fact, Getty once went to the producers and asked them if they could just make Sophia Jewish, which would've made the character easier for her to play.)
