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 »


Rose Nylund: Here you go, Sophia, the perfect after dinner treat, a nice dish of Jello.

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.
