The Hero - S1-E21

Visible crew/equipment: When the shelf falls in the store, you can see the rope attached to the top of the shelving unit being pulled from off-screen triggering the collapse of the shelving unit, it was not the girl's weight that made it tip.

The Hero - S1-E21

Other mistake: Carol grabs a pot holder with her right hand and removes a small cake from the oven. The cake pan is obviously not hot. It starts to tip and Carol steadies it by placing her bare left hand on the underside of the pan.

Jan Brady: Well, all day long at school I hear how great Marcia is at this or how wonderful Marcia did that! Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Question: Would someone please explain to me why Marcia did not just simply remove her dangly bracelet that endangered the girls standing in the house of cards competition after Carol said "Oh Marcia, Marcia, your bracelet"? It would have made it less stressful on her not to mention her team, and she wouldn't have had to restrain it with her other hand.

Answer: There were several episodes throughout the run of the show where Marcia was infatuated with a guy she went to school with. This bracelet could have been a gift from her then-boyfriend; as such, she would not want to take it off, as a sign of loyalty. A stupid thing to do, of course, but it's not a mistake for a character simply to be dumb.

Answer: The dangling bracelet was used for dramatic purposes - to keep the audience on edge.
