DECLINED: It's the whole gay thing, isn't it?

REF: New contribution: #200227-134112-816000

My contribution #200214-085820-216000 was declined, even though I provided a video link as proof, so I just resubmitted it. Because the word "gay" is all over my contribution, it's pending, and, suspecting it will be declined, again, I'm pasting it here to (hopefully) avoid that. 

I re-sub'd it and, since I couldn't re-sub the previous one, I changed it from Plot Hole to Character Error, thinking this might be easier to be approved, and it's both, I think. And I fine-tuned a sentence or two. 

A Fine Friendship (6 February 1995)
Series: The Nanny (1993-1999)


GOOF ADDITION: When the scene fades to black for commercial, Fran has just found out that Kurt, the male nanny, is not gay. She was then wearing a red dress with cutouts in her cleavage, stomach and inner elbow areas. Kurt had then started kissing her, and the camera faded to black upon her screaming: "Oh, my God! You're not gay?!". However, when the scene returns from commercial break, Fran is now in her bra and pantyhose. Since she found out he is a heterosexual before removing her clothes to try on the next dress for his fashion opinion, she then had no further reason to do so. No valid reason is given as to why the nanny got undressed in her room with this man, after finding out he's straight, since she is so upset by that fact, as they're not dating. As written, this made no sense. Character error

Have you read the guidelines? I would say this falls under the Unacceptable goof policy of "keep it short".

Yes, I'm a top contributor. I constantly submit longer than that and it gets published no problems. (Except for one). And exactly how would you shorten that? If I didn't explain what's up, it would incomprehensible. 

So go ahead and let's see how you shorten it and still make sense, I'd be curious to see that!

What is unacceptable to you, pray tell? Have you watched the video clip? ETA: and the reason for decline, again: "unable to verify". 

Reading helps.

It is Way Way over the 400 character limit. They wont "Verify" anything submitted that is incorrectly "Formatted"...Hence, "unable to verify!"
Read what Adrian say.
It was the correct reply.

You should see what I regularly get approved. I'm not exactly short-winded. But feel free to edit that if you can manage. Adrian failed.

Now for some reason, you have chosen to submit this as some sort of goof.
It is not.
When trying to shorten it, it became clear to me that you have no clue what the humor was that was being conveyed.
I'm not going to explain humor nor analyze it for you. Suffice it to say that this one has set sail, and flew right over your head.
You have not the imagination to grab the concept apparently.
And I will not reply to you, as you will have taken this reply as an affront to your intelligence.
This is the end of this chapter.
Go ahead and keep on resubmitting this if you will, just like a roomba stuck in a corner.

Yeah but did you see that cut to commercial and then they come back and she's in her underwear? That's what made no sense. She already had the shocker of finding out he was straight.

Or are you saying my writing made no sense to you? Cos yours just confused me! :P But yes, very funny. You'll probably see the quote I submitted which was ALSO declined 2 weeks ago for "unable to verify". I suspect it'll be making a post headline here soon...

I just now read your previous, which I'd missed when I replied above.

Why so insulting all of a sudden? Because P.S. YOU are wrong! I get the humor, you do not get the goof. 

1) She is having her gay pal give her his "queer eye" fashion advice.
2) She undresses in front of him cos he's gay.
3) She finds out he's straight WHILE WEARING THE RED DRESS. Pay attention now: She's embarassed because (drum roll!) she UNDRESSED IN FRONT OF HIM!

4) Cut to commercial.

5) Come back from commercial: she is now half naked again!

There. I spelled out what you missed because if you're gonna insult me, you're gonna get schooled by me. 

But nice try claiming all your garbage insults "I'm not going to explain humor nor analyze it for you. Suffice it to say that this one has set sail, and flew right over your head.You have not the imagination to grab the concept apparently. And I will not reply to you, as you will have taken this reply as an affront to your intelligence.

Yeah right. I SIDE WITH JIM HERE CALLING YOU A TROLL.. of the worst kind. Your brain cells are clearly defective, Ed! You got outed as a troll by Jim at different thread and now you're trying to pick a fight with me. 

Clearly, you are an agent provocateur with more than a handful of braincells missing. Why you're IMDb's favorite baffles the mind. 

Any questions? DIal 1-800-IMANIDIOT 8-)

This was made in 1993, "The Nanny" is now the hottest comedy in the CBS lineup. It has won its 8 P.M. time slot every week this season; last month, with about 13 million households watching, it hit its highest point, No.Dec 18, 1994Actor: Fran Drescher


Network: CBS


Genre: Comedy



8PM...Meant the "G" rating time slot. After 9 PM "PG" more or less.
So the censoring was more strict.

You had to fill in the gaps with your imagination on 8PM content. 9PM they could be more explicit in the removal of clothing.

Here's what you did not get because it was not laid out in front of you.

They had sex in the commercial break time period and got redressed! If you pay attention to the liners spoken after Fran's boss comes in and she says the line, "and he's not a bad kisser either" that tells you that more than kissing took place.

If you are going to submit things to IMDb such as these kinds of contributions, then your concept of comedy, and the context of its limitations for the time period and it's time slot in which it is presented, must be in your wheelhouse of understanding.

If your not a student of observation, then your observations will be lacking because of that lack of a complete knowledge of what you are trying to interpret.

Or quite simply, thinking that you know everything that a 4 year college course has to offer after dropping out at year 2 thinking that you have learned all that they can possibly teach you because your bored and they seem to be repeating the same concept. But they are in reality teaching you a variation on the same theme. Seems the same, but it's completely different.



EDITED:
Just posted this after your silly reply above.
God your clueless.
Read this and weep.
Bye

Considering your constant bad use of your own language (English) which you can't spell and, evidently, you fail to comprend, and it is my 4th language, you are in no position to insult me, troll! 

You're a classic case of losing face and then attacking others randomly. That's your M.O. on here. 

As Jim told you, GET A LIFE! Get a hobby, such as opening the dictionary and LEARNING ENGLISH, or at the very least spelling because you're hopeless when it comes to its basic comprehension. (Yes, it's "its", not "it's". Deal with it, I know your language better than you!)

OH! And don't come back. Ever.

It's is short for ...................It Is
As in
It is your lack of knowledge.
or
It's your lack of knowledge.

"Its" Or "It's"? | Lexico

The word it's is always short for 'it is' (as in it's raining), or in informal speech, for 'it has' (as in it's got six legs). The word its means 'belonging to it' (as in hold its head still while I jump on its back). It is a possessive pronoun like his.

Anything else you wish to know?
Please just ask.

Good. You were able to find a dictionary. Now stay there and keep studying. Join a forum for the illiterate, I see that you can finally make yourself useful there.

WRONG, Ed Jones! Obviously you did NOT watch the entire episode! They did NOT have sex. Your "saving face" answer makes no sense:

Not only because of what comes next, clearly shows they never were intimate. The Nanny wasn't that kind of show. It was a family show, there's no way they would imply a tryst in a closet. 

When TV shows do so, you see the character smoothing her hair and pulling her skirt down.

 Plus her door remained open, and Mr Sheffield promptly walks in when he hears her scream "you're not gay?" 

My goof submission stands. You, on the other end, need to be on your way out. You messed with one too many persons on here, and I was the wrong one to try and bully, troll!

Please do not make submissions until you are capable of this basic concept.
Just because you did not see a sex scene does not mean it was not "IMPLIED"

NVankerr: wow! So that's your reply?? You are a sock account of Ed Jones (XLIX) aren't you? I was reading about that recently. 

Otherwise, if you are a new troll, you think it's funny to insult people with mental illnesses such as autism and OCD?? 

Bigot much??

This is a website for posting Goofs and Trivia. NEWSFLASH: I even post some about movies that aired 80-100 years ago.

Problem?? Cancel your internet subscription and go shove your head under an ice bucket.

I have bipolar disorder, and have many friends with Autism and OCD.

We joke about it among ourselves.

It's like black people are allowed to call each other "my n*****" women are allowed to call each other "my bitch/slut" etc.

Funny thing, you think I am Ed's sock puppet and he thinks I am yours.

I'm adding paranoid to the list :)

A reminder.
You have been advised on the 400 character limit once already.

You have been advised about a lot of things.

FYI Nikolay, if there were such a thing as "400 character limit", my submissions would not go through. Because that's what computers do: they compute (characters) and a pop up would appear saying "submission too many characters". It does not, because I have several submissions much longer regularly approved, hence why this is a poor excuse to troll my question. 

Please consider carefully whose non-answers you are "liking", Nikolay. No need to feed this troll any further. I've tried being cordial the first time he trolled me (several months ago) but his inanity crossed the line. 

Nikolay: thanks for refraining yourself from deleting my valid replies to this clown and from "liking" his assinine replies, so as to make your buddy look good.

This thread is providing no useful information and was answered, though you don't like it, with my original answer. It could also be denied because if you have to write an essay of why it's a goof, it probably isn't and is just artistic license and maybe you missed the joke.

Instead of letting this flame war continue, I'm closing the thread. Please, do no create another as it will get deleted.
