Blanche says she can't go to the Sinatra concert because her final exam is that night. In the first classroom scene, the chalkboard says that the final exam is in four weeks. But before Blanche gets home and tells the girls that her teacher wants her to sleep with him, Dorothy says the concert is in two weeks. It is the same day, since Blanche is wearing the same outfit and she wouldn't wait two weeks to tell the girls about her teacher. See more »


Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: I am exhausted, I went to at least a dozen ticket brokers today. They all told me the only way I'm going to get tickets is to go to a scalper.
Rose Nylund: You can't buy from a scalper, that's a crime.
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: So is eating grapes at the supermarket but you do that all the time.
Rose Nylund: I have to test them.
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Rose, one is testing, fourteen is brunch.
Rose Nylund: Good Lord I'm a criminal!
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Fine, as long as you already have a record, I can count you in.

Adult Education (#1.20)
10 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Blanche needs to get a degree for a promotion in the museum, but she is having trouble in the psychology class. She asks her professor for help but he says he will give her an A if she sleeps with him. She goes to the Dean but he can't help her.And the rest of the girls want to go to a Sinatra concert but are having trouble finding the tickets.

In the Blanche's story I mainly liked the Dean. The character was pretty funny. "Why are you doing this to me!", a great line when somebody complains about sexual harassment!.

The tickets story was especially funny. The best was Sophia talking about her connections. And that poor Dorothy once again didn't make it to the concert.
