WTB? Randomness

I was watching Sorority Sister the other day and there was a little tidbit about Mona that caught my attention. I didn't think it deserved it's own topic and I tried looking to see if it was aleady discussed but couldn't find anything. So I decided to start a Randomness topic about the little tidbits of the show that you catch or notice and want to mention but don't really need their own topic. For example:

The little thing I caught was the scene at the begining of Sorority Sister when Mona walking in to the house with a bicycle. I was telling my roommate "Mona would never ride a bike." and how it was out of character. I figured they were still "building" her character at that point. And her outfit was so un-like Mona. She looked older and out of style...not the Mona we know and love.

Feel free to add your own random WTB? comments!

Wasn't she pushing a bike in the flashback where she met Tony in her apartment building?

Yeah she did then too. I find it so odd. I just can't see Mona wanting to ride a bike.

I always thought that (the bike) was just the writers trying to show how unconventional Mona was - a free spirit who wouldn't be contained by age or expectations. It's funny, but thinking of "Downton Abbey" - they had Matthew riding a bike as well & I thought it was a bit odd - but again, just thought that the writers were trying to show unconventionality (is that a word?!) once again.

I agree that it was curious, but she was also a college student at that point in the series, so maybe it was an attempt to play on her youthful exuberance!

Well she didn't have a car. I think that's probably the only reason she had a bike. That and the youthful angle as well as still developing her character. Then when she moved into the apartment above the garage and finished college there was no reason for a bike anymore because she could just walk across the driveway to get to Angela's or to borrow Angela's Jag.

My question is, does anyone remember if she ever got a car? I remember her borrowing Angela's Jag a couple of times; was her car in the driveway when Angela couldn't pull Geoffrey's Porshe into the garage? Actually-- just as I'm typing this, I do remember a line where she said her car is down at Giorgio's getting the air in the tires changed. So I guess she did get one at some point. Any guesses on who bought it for her?

She had a car in Ms Mom because she wanted Angela to change the oil.

Semi-Private Lives (watching it now). The snow plow man was helping Mona with her car....

Hope everyone is having a good Monday!

I'm still trying to picture Mona riding a bike in a fancy outfit and stilettos!

I don't know why but every time I watch The Christmas Card I'm always afraid that Angela is going to drop her vase.
