How Long Oscar Has Been Divorced

In "The Odd Couples" (54) Felix mentions that Oscar has been divorced for 3 years, which would be 1969. In "The Ides of April" (63) Felix mentions that Oscar has been paying alimony for 8 years, which means that he was divorced around 1964 or 1965. In "Cleanliness is Next to Impossible" (85) Oscar says that he has been divorced for 8 years, which by that time would be 1966. In "The Bigger They are" (105) Oscar still says that he was divorced 8 years ago, which would be 1967. So, while the writers were consistent in saying that Oscar had been divorced for 8 years, they forgot that what was 8 years in 1972 was 10 years in 1974, and 11 years in 1975.
