The production team were so desperate for Bea Arthur to return for the second and third seasons, that they offered to cut down the episode number, and work around her schedule. Arthur declined the offer several times. Had Arthur returned, the second season would have seen the girls return to their Miami house, and The Golden Girls (1985) would have resumed. See more »

While many have probably never considered this obvious fact, it its impossible not to consider the parallels between Don Cheadle sheltering Tusti refugees in a hotel and Don Cheadle sheltering The Golden Girls in a hotel. In fact, the Oscar-nominated film is really little more than a pale remake of this inspirational series, with Nick Nolte taking the place of Betty White in strikingly similar roles. Some day perhaps this classic will be released on DVD, and we will see where the story truly began, but for now, those who watch "Hotel Rwanda" can merely view Cheadle's rescue of the refugees and gratefully think "Thank you for bein' a friend."
