Show Biz - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Early is with the farmer with the unknown illness and talking to Dixie, there's a tall dark item sticking up on the left side of the farmer's buttoned shirt pocket, and then when Dr. Knott stops to ask him questions the item is sticking up on the right side of the buttoned pocket. It could not have simply shifted sides in the pocket, because the pocket flap is buttoned at the center.
