The Glass House

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ruby and brother are driven to Terry's crash site the police cruiser changes from a 98 model to a 97 model. The vehicles headlights, front bumper and over all design are completely different.

Continuity mistake: in the scene where Ruby slashes the Volvo's tires, once the guys are gone she walks to the front of the garage and you can see she has bare feet. But when you see her drop the knife she is wearing green socks

Factual error: The picture of the brakeline leaking is actually a fuel filter. The car would run out of gas. It would not have brake problems.

Question: When Ruby is talking to the woman from Child Services, she says "You're writing everything down, now everything will be written down twice". But when was the first time that stuff was written down?

Chosen answer: The first time the information was written down was more than likely when Alvin Begleter (the trust attorney) initially contacted the Child Services rep, as it was through him that she found out about Ruby and Rhett's situation in the first place. At the time, the social worker would have written down what Mr. Begleter was telling her so that she could a) have something to refer to when she later visited Ruby and b) so that she could compare the two versions to make sure there were no discrepancies between the story she got from the attorney and the version from Ruby.

Question: Why did Terry and Erin put the kids in one bedroom at first? They had another room anyway, as is revealed when they suddenly make the new bedroom for Ruby, before the social worker visits. And if they want the kids to trust them, it would make sense to give a teenage girl her own room.

Answer: Terry told them when they first moved in that it was only going to be temporary so that they would think that they would eventually get separate rooms, but I think they always intended to keep Ruby and Rhett together in the same room so that they could easily monitor their movements. The only reason they quickly knocked up a second room (for Ruby) for when the social worker came, was to carry on the charade of being responsible guardians for them, and they knew if the social worker saw that a teenage girl and her younger brother were sharing, it would raise red flags, and they needed everyone to believe that they were responsible enough guardians, so that they could keep the kids and eventually get their hands on the trust.
