What are some other entrances or exits that make no sense or other "accomodations" that just don't fit?
I was watching Tony and the Honeymooners the other day and the scene in the hallway with Tony and Angela and Sam and Hank talking about noise always did seem a little awkward to me, and it occurred to me why the other day. I think it's because Mona appears out of nowhere in that scene...she just sort of shows up...
The middle of the night part isn't that odd for Mona, but what was she doing in the main house in the middle of the night? And what would make her go upstairs? That always seemed like an odd entrance to me.

Okay here is what I think. Mona had just come home from her bad date (with the guy that we see at the end of the show)She goes to get something to eat then decides to see if anyone is still awake. She hears voices from upstairs and Mona being Mona decides she wants to know what all the hub bub is about and goes upstairs.

I agree with SherryLH. I always liked that when Mona came "home" she cruised through Angela's on her way to her apartment. To me that showed how close they really were.
I grew up in the same town as my grandfather and three aunts/uncles. We were always in and out of each others houses, no knocking, just walk in. It's the same today with the sisters & cousins that still live in the area.

The Jag changed colors a lot, it seems to me. It was tan (taupe, sandalwood, whatever), then red, then blue (in Carmella's Uncle), then tan again...did they have trouble finding Jags in California?

Listner that reminds me of one of the early episodes of Frasier when Roz visited Frasier's apartment for the first time. He said something like 'how do you like it, is it what you expected?' And she said something like 'well, I expected a lot of beige...and look! Beige.'

And then there was poor Wally, who came to the door and Tony said he looked "very beige."

When did beige/taupe/sandalwood get a bad wrap??

Everyone here seems to have such sharp eyes. Especially you Angie and Anneli.
I'm not really good in catching small details but I noticed that in "Tony Bags a Big One" Mr. Hamilton, Angela's client supposedly met Mona for the first time and they even had a fight that's why Tony intervened and accidentally shot him but later in "Tony, Can You Spare a Dime", Mr Hamilton appeared again and everyone acted as though they met Mr. Hamilton for the first time again. He even kissed Mona's hand and said it was a pleasure to meet her, but he already met her.

The only other things I also noticed were Oakey's inconsistent mailbox and T&A fan's observation about Angela's singing. In some episodes her character was off-tune like in "It Happened One Summer" when she tried singing 'Cumbaya" , in some she was great like in "Tony and the Dreamtones" and in "Fabulous Robinson Sisters"

Ha! Little do you know, for me, anyway, it took 20 years of viewing for me to notice stuff. So don't feel bad. And prettydynamic, you might enjoy the bloopers section if you haven't been there yet. There's lots of fun stuff listed there and it gives you something new to look for when you watch the episodes. It's at the very top of this page, third link from the left.

I don't think the Reed thing is a mystery as everyone seems to think it is. I just re watched the scene on youtube and Mona goes to answer the door. Reed smiles at her and says "Hello" to which Mona responds "Shut up and kiss me" which they then do until Angela pulls her off. Then Reed shakes both Angela and Tony's hands after he says their names and remarks how nice they are for having him to dinner (or something like that)


And if you remember at the end of Tony bags a big one it seemed like everything was okay. Angela comes out of the kitchen saying that the brunch was wonderful and then asked where Tony and Mr Hamilton were. Mona replied that they went for a walk in the park. Angela replied that that was nice and that Tony was trying so hard to make up for the accident.

So from my point of view everything was okay at the end of Tony Bags A Big One and I never got the feeling that they were all meeting for the 1st time in Tony Can You Spare A Dime.

There's a detail that always bothered me, I don't know if it has been mentioned before, it's Billy's bedroom. Where did that room come from? I don't remember seeing a room there before...
