Did You Know?


In season 3, it is said that Sophia is grandmother of 6 grandchildren. This is untrue because according to season 1, Dorothy has 2 children (Michael and Kate), Gloria has at least 1, and Phil has 10 children. This makes the total 13 not 6. See more »


Sophia was being interviewed by the show host, she said that she was a grandmother of six. In another episode she said that her son Phil has six children that he couldn't take care of and Dorothy has two children of her own. That would make eight grandchildren. See more »

Grab That Dough (#3.16)
19 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia has a great news. She has tickets for them all to go to Hollywood to participate in Grab that Dough. Only the trip is bad. Their luggage gets lost, their reservations are given away and they have to sleep in the lobby. At the show Blanche and Dorothy decide to team up with other players to get more money. And Rose and Sophia aren't happy.

There are some things in the episode that make no sense. Like, how could the brothers be so bad if they kept on winning shows, how did Rose know those things, how did they allow Sophia and Dorothy to e on different teams because it was an obvious advantage, which also doesn't make sense why Rose and Sophia were mad. But this is a sitcom, and besides that the episode was pretty fun.
