Actress Nan Martin played two roles. She played Frieda Claxton (the lady Rose killed) and Philomena (the lady from Sicily who may be Dorothy's real mother).

Actor George Grizzard played Jaime, the brother of Blanches late husband George. He also played George in Blanches dream that he staged his death.

The one that bothered me the most was Harould Gould playing Arnie and Miles. I was like "that doesn't make sense!"
Also, in one of my favorite episodes "Break In," Rose mentions she is from Little Falls. But in all the other episodes it is stated (quite clearly) that she is from St. Olaf.

Sorry, this is about the Golden Palace, but Miles gets married to this lady Fern. Miles is played by Harould Gould--Harould Gould played Rhoda Morgenstern's father on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda. Fern is played by Nanette Fabrey--Nanette Fabrey played Mary Richards mother in The MTM Show. Rhoda's father married Mary's mother??? I'm sorry but when acting role choices get to close to other shows it confuses me!!!

Agreed. This was probably the stupidest blooper the writer's did. I dont understand how they thought that the viewers wouldnt notice this?? The other actors that played two parts werent as noticable, but the Arnie/Myles character was just ridiculous.
Here's a list of actors that played more than one part in the show that Ive noticed:


Nan Martin: Freida Claxton & Philomena
Bill Dana: Uncle Angelo & Sophia's Father
Bea Arthur: Dorothy & Sophia's Mother
Chik Venera: Enrique Mass & Kid Pepe
Harold Gould: Arnie Petersen & Myles Webber(Nick Carbone)
George Grizzard: George Devereaux & Jamie Devereaux
Sid Melton: Sal Petrillo & Don the Fool
Flo Di Re: Gina & Young Sophia Petrillo
Paul Dooley: Issac Q. Newton & George Corliss
Lloyd Bochner: Patrick Vaughn & Edurado
Alan Blumenfield: Lou(Plumber) & Mr. HA HA
Nat Bernstein: Dr. Wallerstein & Emily's Father (baby they babysat)
Ralph Ahn: Jim Shu & Yakamora



Thats all of the ones at least that I have noticed.

There is also an episode where you can see equipment. I can't remember what episode it is right now, but I'll post again as soon as I see it (which shouldn't be long as I watch them every day). I remember that Rose is standing in the living room right outside the kitchen door facing into the living room. As she's talking, you can for a second see the bottom of a black microphone move drop down over the top of her head barely into the camera's view. It was really weird the first time I noticed it because it reminded me that the house was a set and not really a house. lol

Heres one thats really screwed up: I remember watching an episode of Empty Nest after the character of Sophia was added to the show. She had moved back to the Shady Pines rest home, and Sid Melton had the role of another resident, instead of Salvadore.

I believe that is the episode where Dorothy's daughter gets married. You can see the camera come into the shot out on the lanai. Also in the Operation, you can see the microphone come down when Sophia walks into the livingroom from the bedroom when Rose and Blanche are dancing.

well in all fairness, about the cat ones, I'm not saying that it wasn't a writing blooper as I'm sure it indeed was, however I am allergic to cats but I take allergy pills and I own two cats.

Two bloopers I cannot get over and never will (both age-related):
Dorothy said her grandmother died at the age of 94 when she was 6 ...the same grandmother Dorothy (Bea) played in a flashback in a wheel chair back in Brooklyn. The other is Michael. First he's 29, then a year or so later he's 23, then he's 30 (he was on three times).

We've agreed elsewhere that the girls' mistakes, and character flaws, are not bloopers - they're not perfect and that makes them human. But have you ever noticed how their advice to each other is often at odds with their own reactions in similar situations.

Sophia counsels Blanche to accept her brother Clayton falling in love with another man and holding a commitment ceremony - that it's no different than Blanche wanting to make a lifetime, public, commitment to George. But then Sophia is so embarrassed about Phil's cross-dressing. No, cross-dressing is not the same as being gay, but I guess I have a hard time with someone being so enlightened about one and so embarrassed about the other. And Sophia implied she wouldn't want Phil to be gay either, when she asks in the funeral episode, "was he queer?"

Blanche can see how cruel her daughter's boyfriend, Jeremy is, but can't see it when Rex Huntington treats her the same way.

Sophia also counsels Dorothy not to meddle between Kate and Dennis, even though Sophia never stopped trying to tell Dorothy what to do about Stan, or other men.

I can think of at least three times when Blanche counseled another woman not to be as, well, friendly, as Blanche always claimed SHE was:

"What men find you, is available, and that's no compliment...when I'm with a man it's because I like him, not because I want him to like me." - to her niece Lucy - I really couldn't see where Lucy's behavior was any different from Blanche's.

"Play hard to get, it drives a man crazy." To Sophia, in "Old Boyfriends." (Dorothy called Blanche on that one.)

"If you keep Miles at bay, wonderful things will happen..." to Rose, in "Girls Just Wanna..." And then later she said that she knew her men were superficial compared to Miles, but she doesn't seem to act on learning that lesson.

And Blanche advises Rose to be patient with her boyfriend Ernie's "problem." Wonder if Blanche really could be that patient?

Then, Dorothy is so amazed that her daughter Kate would take her husband back after the affair - even though Dorothy kept going back and forth with Stan.

Blanche dates older men but go so upset about her father's new wife.

Blanche and Dorothy get upset about their parents remarrying, but they stick up for Rose when Miles' daughter is opposed to the relationship. (Not that Rose didn't deserve the support, or that Caroline wasn't mean.)

This is probably a tiny one that just reveals my capacity for overanalyzing...but in the one where Miles has been living on an Amish farm and he says "it sucks." Somehow I felt like the writers forgot that Rose grew up on a farm. I would have expected her to disagree with him. She always stood up for St. Olaf when someone put it down.

Something else that has always bothered me about that whole storyline was the fact that in an earlier episode Rose invited Miles and his daughter over for lunch on his birthday. If he was in the witness protection program, he wouldn't have been allowed to make contact with his family.

I may be wrong, but I don't think that whole storyline with the witness protection program had come into play yet.
