Plot hole: After Roy is knocked out of the barn doors, Pam and Reggie slowly walk over to look, but then Roy jumps up and grabs onto the barn floor. However when we see a wideshot of him dangling, you can see there are no ledges for him to have gripped onto while he fell, and that it's just a flat wall. Therefore he couldn't have popped up because there weren't any ledges for him to have grabbed a hold of on the wall. He should have instantly fallen on the tractor harrows. (01:18:45)
