Default The Golden Girls set was reused...

I didn't know this, but the set from The Golden Girls was a recycled set from a previous Susan Harris series from 1982 called "It Takes Two". It's kinda eerie seeing a different family (Patty Duke and Helen Hunt) living in the GG's home.

Check it out at 4:22:

Wow! Great find.

Anthony Edwards is barely recognizable with all that hair! Looks so different from his days on ER. Odd that I have no memory of "It Takes Two".

I always liked Patty Duke and Richard Crenna. And I really didn't remember Helen Hunt being on another sit-com before she did "Mad About You". Did you notice they had a white refrigerator in the kitchen back then? Wonder why they changed it? And it also looks like they used one of the GG bedrooms too. I think it was Blanche's bedroom where you could see the passageway to the bathroom, like we see in this video. But the whole thing is so old and blurry it's hard to be sure.

Definitely!

It was scheduled against Simon & Simon, and Cheers/Taxi.

Yeah, me neither! But according to IMDb, Helen Hunt was actually on everything before she did Mad About You. She played Murry's daughter on one episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, she did The Facts of Life, and she did Gimme a Break all before this.

I'm sure they tried to change as many things as possible between series: they changed the wallpaper, too.

I wasn't sure. But I noticed the kitchen right away. While I was watching that clip, I kept expecting Sophia to walk in with a wisecrack at any moment.

That's probably the best look we ever get into that room off the kitchen, which I always figured was the pantry between the kitchen and the hallway to the bedrooms. Of course, it also was used as a back door even though architecturally, that made no sense!

“It Takes Two” was a fun show - with a great cast - that should have lasted longer. Typical Witt/Thomas/Harris production - lots of good ones liners, but not afraid to tackle more serious issues. Shortly after it ended its brief run, it was offered in syndication as a “checkerboard” with some other short lived Witt/Thomas productions, such as “It’s a Living” and “I’m a Big Girl Now”. This enabled “It’s a Living” to return with new episodes.

Did this show take place in an upstairs apartment? It's really weird seeing the city out of the kitchen window instead of the palm trees, but cool. I immediately thought of Dorothy and Sophia taking all night to wash glasses when I saw Patty at the sink.

Niles: God is forgiving, Miss Fine. When I was a boy, I once took five shillings out of the collection plate at church for toffee.
Fran: And nothing happened to you, right?
Niles: That's right, absolutely nothing. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go wash other peoples' underwear.

Yes - it took place in a Chicago high rise apartment building.
