This Is Why Grace And Frankie Should Be In Jail

In TV shows, characters are usually able to get away with things that would get most people in trouble in the real world. The characters in "The Office" would most likely be reprimanded for their workplace behavior, the "Victorious" gang probably would have gotten arrested for attempting to stay overnight at Wanko's, and Rory Gilmore may have gotten a harsher punishment for stealing that boat.

The same sentiment can be said about Netflix's "Grace and Frankie." The series features Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) after their husbands come out as gay and reveal they've been having an affair. The two women never really got along before, but the experience brings them closer together and the show follows their many antics together.

You'd think there can't be much that these two mature women can get up to, but after seven seasons, fans have learned Grace and Frankie can find themselves in many different situations. In fact, some of the shenanigans they have found themselves in have been borderline illegal. Here's why Grace and Frankie could have been in jail.

Grace and Frankie have stolen more than once

Over the course of the show, both Grace and Frankie have done things that could have resulted in being arrested or at least a citation. For example, Frankie drives without a license. However, what could have gotten the gal pals in trouble is the fact that they have stolen on more than one occasion.

In Season 1, to cope with the recent development of their husbands' affair, Grace and Frankie go out to buy cigarettes. While at the store, the clerk doesn't pay them much mind, so ultimately Frankie just straight-up steals a pack of smokes. Not too big of a deal, right? Well, it doesn't stop there.

Next in line, during Season 4, Grace and Frankie are tricked into moving into an assisted living home. After a while, the two become sick of staying there and decide they are going to escape and go back home. Their escape plan? Stealing a golf cart as the two ride off Bonnie-and-Clyde-style in the vehicle. It's a totally hilarious scene, but the golf cart is most likely the property of the home.

Lastly, in Season 6, after Nick (Peter Gallagher) is arrested for tax evasion, Grace and Frankie find some money he has stashed away in a couch. What do they do with the money? Keep, it of course. Whether or not this one counts as stealing is up for debate, but one thing's for sure, it was hysterical. All in all, "Grace and Frankie" is a lighthearted show, so it's no wonder why the characters don't go to jail for their petty crimes, but it is shocking to see just how many times the iconic duo has committed theft.
