** In "Room 7," Sophia [[ItMakesSenseInContext climbs to the roof of Blanche's grandmother's old home]] to jump into a haystack. The "Sophia" who leaps off the roof is plainly a dummy dressed in Estelle Getty's costume.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: As a sitcom largely based in reality, it didn't have many special effects moments, but occasionally, this shows up.
** 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.

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!]]
