Continuity mistake: Mrs. Tweedy stretches her gloves out and releases them. The chickens gulp and Mrs. Tweedy walks away. Between these two shots of Mrs. Tweedy, the clouds behind her obviously change.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Tweedy collects the eggs, he adds check marks in Tuesday's column on the list he holds. In Monday's column it reads that chickens 276 and 277 did not lay eggs the day before. However, when the list is submitted at the end of the week, there are check marks in Monday's column for chickens 276 and 277, as if they did lay eggs.

Other mistake: When Ginger finds the bottom of Rocky's poster she takes it out and lines it up with the top half ...and it stays there without any sort of support (we see the back of it as she approaches the poster, and there's nothing there which will stick it).

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Tweedy gets the idea of converting her farm when reading the brochure called "Sick and tired of making minuscule profits," a wedding picture of the husband and wife is seen on a cupboard at the back. Then, in the next shot, as Mrs. Tweedy slams her hand on her desk that same picture suddenly happens to be on the desk.

Question: Did anyone catch what Mac is talking about thrust? Or is she just mumbling?

Answer: The first bit is "Thrust! I went over my calculations, hen, and I figure that the key element we're missing is thrust". Rocky says that he didn't catch a word of it, and Mac replies "Thrust! Other birds like ducks and geese, when they take off, what do they have? Thrust!"
