If her HistoricalRapSheet, NoodleIncidents, [[TheMafia Sicilian "connections"]], and [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome Offscreen Moments Of Awesome]] weren't enough to put her here to begin with, her constant (and frequently effective) [[TheChessmaster scheming]] and [[BatmanGambit manipulation of others]] would be.

** The show ''Series/HotInCleveland'' is essentially a SpiritualSuccessor[=/=]SettingUpdate of ''The Golden Girls''. Creator/BettyWhite plays a character who is basically [[{{Expy}} the Sophia of the group]], which is amusing to people who mostly [[JustForFun/RoleAssociation know her as Rose]].

** Blanche's initial rejection of her brother Clayton for being gay might seem explainable considering the era the show takes place in, her age and her southern protestant background. But the possible true reasons for her reaction become evident once you consider the Golden Palace episode "Tad". In this episode , it's found out that Blanche has another brother Tad, who's mentally handicapped. Blanche lets Rose know that her family and herself never spoke of Tad because he was considered an embarassment. With an upbringing such as this, is it any wonder that Blanche would be horrified at her seemingly "normal" brother suddenly coming out as gay after years of heterosexual marriage?

* 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.

* {{Anvilicious}}/SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Like a lot of shows of the era, it's given something of a pass for its occasional heavy-handedness; since it tackled such hot-button issues for the time, it didn't really have the luxury of being subtle.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome[=/=]EarWorm: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFl7r2dUmTA Thank you for bein' a friend!]]

** The first season episode "Break-In" features Rose predicting that one of the girls will get cancer, as she'd read somewhere that one out of every three people will get it. In real life, one of them ''did'' get cancer -- Bea Arthur, who passed from it in 2009.

* HilariousInHindsight: In a special two-part episode, Rose (Betty White) had a heart attack and had to stay in the hospital and was looped out ([[TheDitz moreso than usual]]) on prescription medication. In a scene with her daughter, Rose yells "[[SaturdayNightLive Live from New York, it's Saturday Night]]!" in her delirium. Fast forward to 2010, where, thanks to publicity from a Facebook petition, Betty White ''did'' get to host ''SNL'', becoming the show's oldest host (at age 88 and a half), the first ''SNL'' host to be picked via online petition[[note]]but not the first to be picked by viewers; that honor goes to Miskel Spillman, who won the "Anyone Can Host ''SNL''" contest -- ''and'' was considered the oldest host the show ever had until Creator/BettyWhite usurped the title -- back in 1977[[/note]], and the second cast member from ''The Golden Girls'' to host ''SNL''. (Bea Arthur was the first, hosting a season five episode in 1979, but this was before ''The Golden Girls'' was created.)
