Growing Pains picture

Weekend Fantasy - S1-E8

Other mistake: Having thought that the kids were in trouble, or away when Jason and Maggie go away for the weekend, they call the next door neighbor to check on them and have them call them back at the hotel that they are staying, but they did not give a phone number to be called. A few minutes later, they call the police as there was no answer - and Maggie says "Jason, you didn't even give them a number to call us back" - but they didn't give the number to the neighbor, and the police would more than likely have it for caller ID reasons.

The Waltons picture

The Conflict - S3-E1

Other mistake: While Martha Corinne is standing in front of the bathroom sink in the new house, we see her height compared to the mirrored medicine cabinet above the sink, and Martha Corinne is quite a bit shorter than the mirror's knob, even with her bonnet. When she reaches up to open the cabinet door, in the next closeup from behind her she is now taller than that knob. For this specific closeup The Actress was presumably standing on a stool, in order to have the perfect shot of her turning her head, then being surprised by her own reflection in the mirror. (00:54:00)
