Christine's Friend - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When Judge Stone is flipping down the hall out of excitement, you can tell it's his stunt double as his face appears on camera after the cartwheel. It appears his bow tie is missing too.

Crossroads (2) - S8-E7

Factual error: When people begin to describe their symptoms, Dr. Deyoung says the "virus" could be a number of things, but then lists bacterial diseases. Something a doctor in his field would not do, especially since the test tube that broke was already described by him as "experimental bacteria."

Hi Honey, I'm Home - S1-E13

Question: In this episode, a married woman is surprised to discover that her first husband, a soldier who was MIA and then declared legally dead is still alive. How would this affect her marriage to her second husband? Is she still legally married to her first husband?

Chosen answer: Being declared legally dead is called "death in absentia", meaning there is no evidence of death (i.e. a body), but the individual is presumed dead. This can happen to anyone, not just MIA soldiers. If a spouse petitions the courts to grant a divorce on the presumption of death and all criteria are meet, they are legally divorced and free to remarry. The return of the presumed dead would not change the divorce ruling. However, if a spouse does not go through the legal steps prior to remarrying, then the return of the presumed dead spouse would nullify and void the 2nd marriage immediately (and the remarried spouse could face bigamy charges).

Show generally

Question: In one of the episodes, it's discovered that Dan's name isn't really Dan Fielding. What is his real name?

Chosen answer: Reinhold. As soon as this name is revealed (during the episode with all the pregnant women giving birth) all of the cast repeat the name incredulously. This is a tribute to Reinhold Weege, the creator of Night Court.

Show generally

Question: I barely remember an episode where a personal video in question was to be viewed in the judge's chambers. Of course Dan wanted to be in on the viewing. Before Harry left the bench his court clerk or the defense made a comment (do not know which clerk or defense) regarding the viewing of the tape. Harry answered something to the effect that they were going to review the tape for the four (or five) points of interest of a woman's anatomy. She stands there while the men all follow Harry out of the court room. The person (clerk or defense) silently and slowly counted on her fingers and then looks up and says, "Oh my God." Does anyone know which episode this was?
