* BlatantLies: Many abound; to list two, Hitler never set foot in the United States despite what Rose claims and Minnesota has absolutely no volcanoes within its geography, of ''any'' type.

** Speaking of Sophia, there was also the matter of her siblings. In the first two seasons, she said that her only living relative was her sister Angela, who disappeared after two appearances. Later in the series, she was suddenly revealed to have a brother named Angelo.

She also apparently has a brother Vito who is the TheUnseen, and another unseen relative named Regina who might be Sophia's sister or might be Salvatore's sister.

* BedmateReveal: After hugging George in "Mrs. George Devereaux", we hardcut to Blanche smiling in bed, her eyes closed. She rolls over in bed... [[AllJustADream and we see she's alone]].

* SpotTheThread: It's relatively easy to tell that "Mrs. George Devereaux" was AllJustADream before the ending just by viewing Dorothy's subplot, where she gets into a love triangle with Lyle Waggoner and Sonny Bono.

* AndStarring: "And Estelle Getty."Getty" (though in a subversion of this trope, it wasn't done to signify that Getty was a big-name star--actually, she was the ''least'' known of the four actresses when the show began).

** It gets even worse--Blanche and Dorothy admonish Rose for bidding by waving her paddle...which they demonstrate. The auctioneer keeps upping their bids because of it (although since they're sitting in the front row and clearly together, he seems to be doing so deliberately at that point).


Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: A minor one in "The Artist." The girls discover that Jasper [=DeKimmel=], a {{Jerkass}} artist, is dying, and needs a donor with a rare blood type to save his life. Dorothy, Rose, and Blanche use the opportunity to buy one his paintings, as Blanche points out that an artist's work often appreciates by a huge amount after her or his death. At the end of the episode, they're successful and call Sophia to let her know. Sophia tells them that they've wasted their money, as a donor was found with [=DeKimmel's=] blood type. The camera then pulls back to reveal Sophia herself lying in a hospital bed as she complains that all she gets for saving a man's life is "juice and a cookie."


Added DiffLines:

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: An implied version in "The Artist." Sophia fully supports the girls' plan to purchase an original Jasper [=DeKimmel=] painting due to his imminent death (which only they know about, thanks to Sophia herself volunteering at the hospital where he's being treated), and even encourages them when they start to have doubts; she explains that since the doctors can't find anyone with [=DeKimmel's=] rare blood type, they might as well use the opportunity. However, once she learns (off-screen) that ''she'' is a match, she ultimately decides to make the donation, presumably deciding that as long as she was able to help, she had to do so.

The show ran on Creator/{{NBC}} for seven seasons (198592), hitting the Nielsen Top 10 in six of those seasons. After Bea Arthur (Dorothy) left, the three remaining women bought a hotel and continued on the Creator/{{CBS}} series ''Series/GoldenPalace'', which ran for one unspectacular season. It also [[SpinOff spun off]] the long-running sitcom, ''Series/EmptyNest''.
