Partners in Crime - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Donna starts fiddling with the Adipose necklace she stole, this causes an Adipose to be created out of Stacey's fat cells. When this begins, Stacey is in the upstairs bathroom applying lip gloss, and she's holding the applicator wand when her stomach begins to move. When she pulls up her shirt to look at her distending stomach in the mirror, the lip gloss wand is gone. (00:07:15)

Suggested correction: Actually, it looks like she finished putting on lip gloss and put the lid with the applicator back on just before she starts feeling queasy from the impending Adipose birth.
