The Glass House

Other mistake: When Ruby is signing onto America Online to check her mail you hear the dial-up sound before she even clicks on the sign on button.

Other mistake: In the scene where Ruby is writing her parent's lawyer an email, there are no cables connected to the computer she's using, and still she's able to get online. She can't be using an airport, because then you wouldn't get the dialling tone.

Other mistake: When Rhett sees Terry coming up from the car accident that he was in and tells Ruby, she jumps in the front seat of the car. The car is in park, but she moves the lever up, which would mean the car was in the drive position already.

Continuity mistake: in the scene where Ruby slashes the Volvo's tires, once the guys are gone she walks to the front of the garage and you can see she has bare feet. But when you see her drop the knife she is wearing green socks

Question: Why did Terry and Erin put the kids in one bedroom at first? They had another room anyway, as is revealed when they suddenly make the new bedroom for Ruby, before the social worker visits. And if they want the kids to trust them, it would make sense to give a teenage girl her own room.

Answer: Terry told them when they first moved in that it was only going to be temporary so that they would think that they would eventually get separate rooms, but I think they always intended to keep Ruby and Rhett together in the same room so that they could easily monitor their movements. The only reason they quickly knocked up a second room (for Ruby) for when the social worker came, was to carry on the charade of being responsible guardians for them, and they knew if the social worker saw that a teenage girl and her younger brother were sharing, it would raise red flags, and they needed everyone to believe that they were responsible enough guardians, so that they could keep the kids and eventually get their hands on the trust.
