Factual error: Luki shows up late at night to retrieve his baseball cap from the house where Amelia is staying. He explains that the hat is very important to him because it was signed and given to him personally by Stan Musial. Stan Musial played his whole career for the Cardinals, but the cap is a Boston Red Sox cap.

Continuity mistake: When Donovan is picking Miss Deddum off the ship, she loses her balance (and bag) and there are many outriggers near the ship. First the water is choppy, then Donovan says "watch these swells." The next second it's calm as glass when she steps off and he pulls her in the water. The next scene, everyone is jumping from the ship and suddenly, all the outriggers are no where to be seen near the boat.

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Amelia goes to Donovan's bar, she gives Gilhooley a wrapped present containing a model train set. Amelia then goes into another room to confront Donovan. When she comes out a few minutes later, Gilhooley has completely set up the train and is playing with it. He would not have had enough time to unpack it, much less have it up and running.
