Goofs

When Phyllis Hammerow walks on stage with a hand fan, she gives a quick flick of her wrist to open it, but the fan quite noticeably splits in half. She goes on ignoring it (although a couple of studio audience members laughed), and in the next shot the fan is opened and unbroken, which probably means that the break wasn't supposed to be a joke.

The Actor (#2.14)
15 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The girls' community theatre is having a play and they get a famous actor to be a lead role in it. He also ends up dating the three of them behind each other's back. And as they find out later he did the same with all the other women who participate in the production and call him out on stage.

It wasn't the funniest episode, but it had good moments. The best one is the calling him out on stage with "You slept with the sheriff?" and Blanche saying they need a rope to hang him.

I also liked Sophia in her pirate outfit. Her getting her sable out to fight Dorothy was a funny moment.
