Overboard

Other mistake: During the opening of the mini golf course you see in one shot that the ball comes out of Lincoln's mouth. Ever notice that there is no where for the ball to go? No artificial putting green is there, just a wooden platform and natural grass.

Continuity mistake: When Dean goes to the hospital, the police officer hands him a large manilla envelope containing the photos of Annie/Joanna. Dean folds the envelope in half, pressing it together firmly, then shoves it into a jacket pocket. Later, when Dean gives the photos to Billy, the envelope is flat and the pictures are in mint condition - no bends or wrinkles.

Question: When Grant comes to find Annie/Joanna, how does he know exactly where to go to find her? He ends up at Dean's house without knowing where he lives.

Answer: This is just speculation, but since he knew what hospital she'd been in, he likely went there and asked who'd claimed her and where they lived. It wouldn't be too difficult.
