Alice in Wonderland mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When being a giant inside the house, Alice extends her arms and they're quite short. A couple of shots later she remains the same size but her arms are now 5 times longer to allow for her to open the windows on the front. This has nothing to do with the magical cookies.

Question: In the scene when the Mad Hatter is "fixing" the rabbit's watch, the Hatter exclaims "It was!" before the rabbit states that the watch was an unbirthday present. Is this on purpose? Or an editing mistake?

Answer: Actually, the White Rabbit sees his damaged watch, says "Oh! My watch". THEN the Mad Hatter says "It was!", then the White Rabbit says that it was an unbirthday gift. So the exchange of dialogue makes sense.
