** The woman who showed up at Frieda Claxton's funeral and gave a beautiful eulogy thinking it was for someone else, then kicking the coffin when she learned who it was really for.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossingTheLineTwice: ''Many'' of Sophia's jokes and other antics. For example:
-->'''Dorothy:''' ''(to Sophia, while they're visiting a hospital)'' Where were you?
-->'''Sophia:''' I got a little frisky, so I went up to Geriatrics and sang "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better".
-->'''Dorothy:''' ''(outraged)'' Oh Ma, you didn't?!
-->'''Sophia:''' I sure did, and some crowd they were; they threw Jell-O at me... [[UpToEleven if you can call that throwing!]]
** Blanche's sexual nature and self-delusion as well. Granted, this example was a product of {{Flanderization}}, but the "Beauty and the Beast" episode where her seven-year-old granddaughter is visiting, the nickname she had the girl calls her while she was parading around sailors was ''"Sis"''.

** In "One for the Money," the girls reminisce about [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4hNLNuysl4 participating in a dance marathon]]. Dorothy and Blanche do a solo dance with their partners, and Rose then steps up to do a few steps all by herself--namely, cartwheels and splits. However, despite the cameras pulling back and the choreography largely hiding the actress's face from view, the woman doing the dancing is ''clearly'' not Betty White: her legs are longer, the wig she's wearing is the wrong color (a fact that becomes obvious when the camera cuts back to White sitting on the floor), and the brief times we do see her face make it obvious that it's a young woman.

** Blanche, Rose, and Sophia's poor treatment of Dorothy starts losing its humor as the jabs move from snarky to outright cruel, leading up to the episode where Dorothy is put on trial with Stan for running a slum they inherited from a deceased relative, that Dorothy wanted no part of. Rose (who works at a consumer advocacy group) runs an exposé on the apartment, and when she finds out that Dorothy is one of the landlords, she only considers how she could have punched the story up to make herself look better. Blanche is easily fooled by the prosecutor into claiming that Dorothy is callous, and Sophia testifies that Dorothy put her in a home (this is treated by the court as a horrific crime). Keep in mind Dorothy could have gone to ''jail'' over this. At no point in the episode do Blanche, Rose, or Sophia say anything genuinely helpful or reassuring to Dorothy.
* CoveredUp: "Thank You For Being a Friend": More people think of the Golden Girls' theme version (sung by Cynthia Fee) than they do the original Andrew Gold version.

** Earlier, in the episode in which Dorothy's uncle Angelo moves into the slum apartment, Dorothy is incensed when she isn't invited to the housewarming party - to which even ''Stan'' was invited.

Added DiffLines:

* DeletedScene: The Season Five episode "Like the Beep Beep Beep of the Tom Tom" has one deleted scene that didn't even make it into the otherwise uncut DVD release of the series. The plot of the episode involves Blanche struggling with making adjustments in her life after she has a pacemaker implanted. In the deleted scene, Sophia is craving microwave popcorn but then sees the microwave oven is gone, and Dorothy and Rose mention they gave it away at doctor's orders out of concern for Blanche's safety. This scene (aired in 1990) was likely cut due to medical knowledge at the time that has been debunked since.
** This also helps explain the scene later in the episode in which Blanche says, "I don't care about anything anymore, life has no meaning," and Sophia responds, "Who wants popcorn?"

** In the episode "The Operation", Dorothy's doctor is played by [[StarTrekVoyager Robert Picardo.]] What's more, he's a replacement doctor.
