The Golden Girls: Son-in-Law Dearest

Dorothy's daughter Kate arrives in Miami for a visit, bringing with her some special news. Dorothy assumes (and hopes) it's that she's pregnant, but the news, it turns out, is far from joyous. Meanwhile, Blanche and Rose tune in to an I Love Lucy marathon.

Episode Notes
This episode was taped on February 20, 1987.

These are the final appearances of Dorothy's daughter Kate and son-in-law Dennis. They are played by a different actor-actress duo than their prior appearance, however.

Dorothy and Stan talk to Dennis on the lanai in one scene. This is a call back to the season one episode "Guess Who's Coming to the Wedding?", in which Dorothy and Stan talk on the lanai. Incidentally, "Guess Who's Coming to the Wedding?" featured Dennis and Kate's introductions.

In one scene, Sophia talks with Dorothy about a dream she was having about being stranded on a desert islanad with Cesar Romero. Cesar Romero would appear as her boyfriend Tony in the season five episode "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun... Before They Die."

Blanche: You didn't!
Dorothy: I was teaching English Lit at the time. Symbolism was my life.



Episode Goofs
When Dorothy and Kate are in the kitchen talking about Kate taking Dennis back, Sophia is sitting at the table. Depending on the shot, a bowl of grapes may or may not be in front of her.
