Corrected entry: Hemlock got paid $20,000 plus the IRS statement for the first sanction, but Jemima Brown steals the money and statement from his safe. When Jemima later returns the money, she says $10,000 and hands it to him. It should have been $20,000.

Correction: Jemima Brown returns with a painting. Then Hemlock asks "where is the change"? She gives him the $10,000. The other $10,000 was used to buy the painting.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Eastwood and Kennedy are climbing in the desert during training, at one point if you look above Eastwood's head while the camera is above looking down you can see bootprints in the sand on a small ledge. Later Kennedy tells Eastwood that he was the first person to ever scale that particular peak.

Correction: 1. Kennedy is lying - entirely within character. 2. The person who left the print didn't reach the peak - they didn't "scale the mountain". 3. Kennedy was talking of long past exploits - he was the first, others followed.

Art Student: I've never felt this close to art before.
Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: How nice.
Art Student: But I have a problem.
Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: How terrible.
Art Student: If I don't keep my "B" average, I'll lose my scholarship and I don't think I'll do well on your final exam. I've gained a while new feeling about art but sometimes you can't put your true feelings down on paper.
Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: How true.



At the Zurich sanction when Jonathan kicks the killer out of the window, just before he kicks him, look at the window. This window has two panes of glass that open outward, with the latch in the middle, but a view from the outside shows that it's a single window with one pane of glass in it, not big enough for two panes.
