Continuity mistake: When Elizabeth walks out of Janie's house-boat and sees who she thinks is Charles in a boat, she has a mug in her hand. Between shots, the way she holds her mug changes. (00:39:05)

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera passes Elizabeth in the phonebox saying "Yes, that what he said...", the reflection of a crewmembers face is perfectly reflected. Then (in the same shot), as the camera pulls back and goes past the phonebox again, his face is once again reflected. (00:05:05)

More quotes from Drop Dead Fred

Question: On what grounds could the judge fire Lizzie? She didn't do anything wrong and when she got to the courtroom, she explained why she was late.

Answer: Being late and unreliable is what she did wrong. It's possible it was a pattern and she was warned about her tardiness before and not just a one time thing. Even though we can only speculate this, since that is all we see, it makes sense and adds to showing her life spiraling downwards.
