The Odd Couple

Character mistake: Shortly after Felix arrives at Oscar's apartment, he goes to a window and asks if it's 12 floors. Oscar rushes over, slams the window shut, and says it's only 11 floors. Since Felix had to push the button in the self-service elevator to get to the correct floor, and since he had been to the apartment many times before to play poker, he would have to know that it was 12 floors.

Other mistake: In the opening credits, the copyright year is shown as MCMXLVII (Roman numerals for 1947), when it should be MCMLXVII (1967).

Oscar Madison: Don't come to me with your petty problems. You get this one stinkin' night a week. I'm cooped up here with Mary Poppins 24 hours a day.
