Continuity mistake: When it shows the opening shot of the United Nations building, we see a woman in a purple dress enter through the rotating doors. Behind her is a man with a bowler hat on, walking towards the doors, and behind him is a coloured man wearing a fez. Yet when it cuts to a view from inside, the man in the fez is now walking through the doors. Then, the woman in the purple dress, who we saw previously entering the doors and walking into the building, is once again outdoors, entering again with the man in the bowler hat behind her.

Continuity mistake: The message from the bottle, written by Penny, has a couple of mistakes. When it falls from the bottle the writing is several inches from the top of the paper and part of the letter says "New York." When it cuts, the writing on the letter starts right near the top of the paper, and it now reads "New Yorc." Also between different shots, the writing on the note changes from being written in cursive to printed. (00:08:45)

Rufus: Faith is a bluebird, we see from far. It's for real and as sure as the first evening star, you can't touch it, or buy it, or wrap it up tight, but it's there just the same, making things turn out right.
Penny: Can't touch it, or buy it, or wrap it up tight, but it's there just the same, making things turn out right. But whoever adopts me has to adopt Teddy, too.
Rufus: Oh, they'll love him! He doesn't eat much, does he?

Question: When Brutus and Nero return Penny to the riverboat after catching her while she tries to run away, what would have happened if Medusa was already at the riverboat by then instead searching the swamp in her swamp mobile?

Johman

Chosen answer: She may have been very upset with Penny for running away. But she may have also had a talk with her like she does much later in the movie about why she needs her for finding the diamond.
