Episode Goofs
Why is Patsy carrying around an IV Stand when she's got no tube hooked into her?

When Patsy is kicked out by Saffy, you can plainly see she's carrying a dummy.

The "Radical TV" logo is on Edina's computer screen. However Edina sold her tv company to Claudia Bing in "Menopause."

Max and Bettina refer to their daughter as "she" and say her name is Allegra, however in New Best Friend, they both refer to their baby as "he" and a blue packet of pampers is visible. So, which did they have?

Cultural References
Crystalline: If you encounter Shirley MacLaine, send her home to me, because she owes me money.
