White Knights - S1-E4

Character mistake: After Ray Palmer says he's an Eagle Scout, he says to Leonard Snart, "be helpful to others, scout's motto." The Boy Scout's motto (including Eagle Scouts) is "Be Prepared." "To help others at all times" is part of the Scout's oath, but that's different than its motto and not something an Eagle Scout would mix up.

Suggested correction: So the character knew they were supposed to say "cavalry" instead of "calvary"? For all we know, that person was pronouncing it wrong their entire life, along with many other people in the world who do not know the difference between the two words.

Both characters used the word "calvary." Clearly a mistake.
