The Hostage - S9-E21

Continuity mistake: In this episode the hidden door to the secret recipe room is controlled by pressing the top right panel on the wall. But pressing that top panel should not open or close the door. In 9x12 "The Hot Rod," when they first discover the "ingenius" panel, it is only the panel second from the top that works, none of the other panels control the secret door when Ike and Miss Emily press them.
