Then in the last season, didn't they no longer have OoH? What happened to that space? I know they had a kitchen, but wasn't that always toward the back of the house? And it didn't look very big in the last season, so I don't think they expanded it into the retail area...
Where the hell did Andy and Pippa sleep?
I just finished watching the crappy last season (most painful and horrible finale EVER!) and I can answer:
I think we only saw the store once in the final season. Beverly Ann said the store wasn't making a profit and suggested they close it and remodel for rooms for Andy and Pippa. We never saw that area again. A few episodes later Andy came out from that direction with a blanket wrapped around him. Previously Andy was sleeping in the basement next to the boiler and Pippa was sleeping on the couch. By the horrendous series finale she had moved into the dorm.
I do think they had episodes during the later years where one or two of the girls would get sick of the arrangement, and move out, but they would always be back before the end of the episode.
Natalie and Tootie moved out at the end of Season 7 and came back. Jo said she was going to move out for more privacy in Season 8, but they remodeled the attic space into another room. At the end of Season 8 Jo got a job offer in CA and at the beginning of Season 9 it had fallen through, so she housesat for Richard Moll (Bull on Nightcourt) and then came back.
Natalie moved out without taking her stuff (she and Tootie were supposed to be visiting a friend and Natalie wanted to stay) in Season 9, then came back to tie up loose ends and moved out for good. We only saw her in a phone call saying she had met someone who was going to turn her into a writer. Tootie got accepted into an acting school. Jo got married and her husband had to leave for a month, but came back in the last episode. Blair bought the school, turned it coed and became the headmistress. Natalie wasn't even in the final picture at the end.
They should have ended on the last episode of Season 8. That would have made a much better finale.
