YMMV: Hot In Cleveland
- Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Elka a Cool Old Lady, or is she needlessly cruel and malicious (especially towards Joy) For the Evulz?
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Betty. White. To the point where virtually everyone credits the show's high ratings to the decision by the producers to turn her one-shot appearance in the pilot into a regular role. To everyone's credit, Elka has not yet become a full-fledged Breakout Character, but seems to be following in the footsteps of, appropriately enough, Sophia from White's own The Golden Girls.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Compare White's role from Golden Girls and her role in this show.
- Hell, compare it to her role on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
- The Wesley: Elka can be quite the bitch. Whereas Sophia often insulted to put the stuck-up or stupid in their place, Elka tends to cut your throat for no reason in particular.
