Corrected entry: When Dr. Rumack says, "Everyone who has eaten fish for dinner, will become violently ill in the next two hours." Captain Oveur looks down at his food, you can see the filmer's legs, because Captain Oveur is wearing white pants, and it can't be an armrest thing because its wrinkled and it moves.

Corrected entry: During the disco dance scene, Ted hurls Elaine towards the ceiling and stands there looking up, waiting for her. But when she falls back into his arms, she jumped from somewhere in front of him. Realistically the trick would not have been possible, I admit that - but still a mistake.
Corrected entry: It is obvious that the two girl scouts who have the fight are stuntmen dressed as women.
Corrected entry: When Captain Oveur is summoned to the white courtesy phone, he picks up the red one at first and is told "No - the white phone." He replies "Oh." Just after his response and just before he hangs up the phone, a small higher-pitched sound is heard. According to Peter Graves in the commentary, that's the script supervisor stifling a laugh.

Corrected entry: When the passengers start getting sick, the pilot radios to Chicago and says, "We're in trouble." Then, they find out that the fish is causing the sickness and the pilot passes out. Elaine then radios Chicago and says "We're in terrible trouble." The man at Chicago then says "suspend all food service out of Los Angeles." No one told him that the fish was causing the problems.
