Mrs. Doubtfire

Visible crew/equipment: When Mrs. Doubtfire is cooking in the kitchen, sets her fake breasts on fire, then hits them with the pan lids to put them out, you can see the camera crew in the reflection of one of the pan lids.

Continuity mistake: At the end when the children learn that their dad is their new baby sitter, look at Chris' tassels on his coat from when they get to door to when Daniel says 'Go get your stuff' and he runs up stairs - between shots, his tassels are both hanging down, then hanging to the right, then hanging down etc. indicating this scene was shot at least twice.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the social worker is at Mr. Hillard's house and his so-called "sister" (Mrs. Doubtfire) is trying to find a face in the kitchen, one moment the wig is all messed up from being caught on the door. In the next scene, where she is looking in the fridge to find the face, her wig is perfectly in place.

Suggested correction: It was in place because at one point, Daniel even moved his wig and fixed it.

Trivia: The newspaper that contains the words 'Doubt Fire' was the same newspaper used on the first episode of Charmed.

Trivia: When Stu calls Daniel a loser at the swimming pool, Mrs. Doubtfire then picks up a lime and throws it at Stu, hitting him on the back of his head. Robin Williams managed to hit Pierce Brosnan on the third take and the lime you see was made of foam rubber. Mrs. Doubtfire then tells Stu it was a 'run-by fruiting' - this line was improvised by Williams.

Trivia: The man who played Todd the bartender at the swimming pool is Robin Williams' brother, Todd Williams.

More quotes from Mrs. Doubtfire

Question: When Daniel learns that Stu is allergic to pepper he sneaks into the kitchen and spikes his food. Later when Stu starts choking Daniel seems surprised. What did he think was going to happen?

Chosen answer: Well when someone's allergies act up, typically people associate that with sneezing and coughing, etc. Daniel didn't think there'd be a much more serious reaction.

Answer: Likely especially since Daniel was drunk, he didn't think it through, and the fact that Stu could die from his "prank."

Question: When Daniel is changing back into Mrs. Doubtfire, why does he/she pour the whole bottle of perfume over him/herself?
