* LaserGuidedKarma: In "Ebb Tide," Blanche's father Big Daddy dies, but she is too obsessed with a local social event to go to visit him in his last days. She receives an expensive ceremonial plate for her participation in the event. Later, when she and Dorothy travel to Atlanta for the funeral, Sophia turns the house into a temporary bed-and-breakfast in an attempt to raise cash for a big-screen TV. During the weekend, the plate ends up broken; Rose and Sophia manage to find a new one, but it ends up costing Sophia all of the money she's made. They have the new plate with them just as Dorothy and Blanche return, and the latter, having realized how selfish and inconsiderate she has been lately, proceeds to smash it on the floor. Sophia lampshades the situation:

* SweetTooth:
** Rose has a notorious sweet tooth. Once, when she can't sleep, she mentions how her nightly ritual involved eating a painful amount of sugar ("A handful of Sno-caps, a couple of Devil Dogs, some Oreos, and a Ho-Ho chopped up in a bowl of fruit cocktail with heavy syrup.") When Dorothy hears this, she snarks "Couldn't sleep? I'm surprised you didn't try to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twinkie_defense kill the mayor of San Francisco.]]"
** Several of Rose's St. Olaf recipes are examples of this. Either lampshaded or parodied with Rose's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ny-SlUiV2xE Maple Syrup Honey Brown Sugar Molasses Rice Krispies log.]] Literally just four layers of sugar stacked on top of each other.
-->'''Dorothy:''' Tell me, Rose, do any of your children still have their own teeth?

*** Also humorously averted with both Sophia and Blanche. Blanche recalls spending the evening with "the President" at the 1972 inaugural ball and awaking in his arms the next day. Dorothy, thinking Blanche meant RichardNixon, is shocked... but Blanche was referring to the president of the local chamber of commerce, and actually expresses disgust at the idea of sleeping with Nixon. In another episode, Sophia tells a story suggesting that she had an affair with Charles [=DeGaulle=] but then clarifies she was referring to a gangster named "Charles the Mole."
