Continuity mistake: In the final scene, John Ross decides to drink some of the whiskey from the bottle that his father, J.R. Ewing, left for him. The bottle of whiskey is about half full, filled to just about the bottom of J.R. Ewing's signature on the bottle. As John Ross reaches for the bottle, it is now suddenly only about 1/6 full compared to the half full it was from the previous shot. The level continues to move up and down. (00:41:45)
