Abra Cadaver - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the episode, when the brothers chat around the central morgue table, the boom mike appears above the table, on the upper side of the screen.


None but the Lonely Heart - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When the black ribbon lands besides the gravedigger's foot, you can see the crewmember's hand tossing it.



The Switch - S2-E2

Question: In this episode, Carlton is told by Linda that he's too old for her so he decides to undergo surgery to become younger. Eventually, he looks just like Hans. At the end of the episode, when Carlton visits Linda, he sees that she's now with Hans, who looks exactly like him. If Carlton was too old for Linda, then why was she still with Hans, since he now has Carlton's body and therefore his old age? Since Carlton was too old for her, that would mean that now Hans is too old for her too.

Chosen answer: It's just the show's typical ironic ending. It turns out Linda was more interested in money than looks, and the surgery and loss of his fortune were unnecessary.
