My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the family is discussing the wedding invitations, Ian and Nick are seated and there is a lemon on the table between them. When Toula says, "Ma, I never saw a wedding invitation," the lemon jumps onto the plate in front of Ian. In the next shot the lemon is back on the table again.
