Goofs

In one scene, Dorothy mentions that her grandmother was 94 when Dorothy was 6. Yet, two episodes previously, a flashback showed Dorothy as a grown woman wheeling her very alive grandmother around in a wheelchair. This means her grandmother would have had to be well into her hundreds at the time of her death. See more »
