*** Alternatively, it wouldn't be seen as provocative. Rose was a teenager at the time, and the product of a much more conservative time. Today's generation that delights in finding new ways to draw dicks on the whiteboard at school is a lot less likely to be offended the same way, though that kid would catch a world of hell for pulling a stunt like that with an adult.

** The Mother's day story about Rose helping a pensioner sneak past the police to go see her dead daughter's grave in a town neighbouring St-Olaf might have seemed heartwarming back then and maybe to some people now, but Rose EFFECTIVELY kidnapped an old lady and lied to law enforcement who had come to bring her back to her care facility. (Clearly there's a reason she's living in a care facility.)

** After Dorothy makes a crack about Rose in "Dateline: Miami", Rose responds by saying "I've never liked her". It turns out Bea Arthur and Betty White were not friends in real life.

* 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?"



* RetroactiveRecognition: A very young Creator/GeorgeClooney had an appearance in the season two episode "To Catch a Neighbor." At the time, he was a up-and-coming actor.

** 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.

** Rose also 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.]]"

** One episode had Rose telling one of her St. Olaf stories about how some creepy soda jerk in her town used to arrange the scoops of her ice cream sundaes in a sexually suggestive manner. Even though her story took place in the 1940s and while she couldn't tell her father since by the time he got there the evidence would have melted (which begs the question of why not just tell the little bastard's boss), if he were to do that nowadays, he would have been fired and possibly arrested/fined for lewd behavior[[note]]as some jurisdictions consider something like that to be a form of indecent exposure[[/note]] or at the very least labeled a pervert and unlikely to find other employment due to his preceeding reputation.
