Visible crew/equipment: After we hear General Clayton in the voiceover talking about how it sometimes seems like Henry is Radar's clerk, during this scene in Henry's office we can see the shadow of moving film equipment - likely the boom, at the top, left side of the screen.

Continuity mistake: The crew is getting the bad news in Henry's office when Radar reports more choppers. From behind, Henry starts to react, and when the angle changes he reacts again.

Continuity mistake: When the General comes up, Pierce and Trapper are walking away toward the camera's left. When Pierce calls for the General's attention he is shown gesturing to the open door. Problem is, that they should be looking over their left, not right, shoulders, and we should see the inside, not outside, of the door.

Continuity mistake: While talking to Hildebrandt, Henry smacks his hands together while saying "Gee, whiz!" When the angle changes, his hands are on the desk.

Audio problem: In Blake's office, he's talking to Hildebrandt about Klinger, and the camera does a close up on Blake. You hear him say "Of course", and his mouth is moving a little, but not forming the words.

Continuity mistake: Usually when you see Pierce, his hair is parted on the left side. When he is nibbling on the nurse's neck in the Swamp, his hair is parted on the right. Then the next time he's seen, it's parted on the left again.

That's Show Biz - S10-E1

Question: Talking with stripper Candy Doyle, Potter remarks that he still remembers how she used to spin her tassels and that he is reminded of this every time he sees a C 42 revving up. On the net I do find references to a C40A, a C47 and others, but no reference to an aircraft of the time called a C 42. What would he have been referring to?

Answer: The C-42 was a military variant of the Douglas DC-2. Very few C-42's were built, so it's questionable that Potter would specifically have seen that particular model, but, given his military background, it's not entirely unreasonable that he might use the military designation even when the aircraft in question is actually a civilian DC-2.
