Answer: No, you didn't miss anything. The writers never say who got tenure. (Although, as a side note, the entire process of getting tenure for the characters is entirely wrong in real life and none of them would have got it).

Continuity mistake: When Gilbert and Amy are unloading the groceries onto the porch, some bags fell over but in the final shot of the scene, all the bags are standing up, even though no-one could've touched them.

Suggested correction: However, Penny's father might not know that. Also, it could be a case that since he works as a Theoretical Physicist that he may have to work weekends, like when he worked nights.

Still Alice (2014)

Character mistake: When Alice is making the video with instructions about how to commit suicide, we see her typewritten notes, and she has misspelled "labeled", something a linguistics professor wouldn't do.

Suggested correction: Both "labeled" and "labelled" are correct spellings of the word. Labeled is chiefly the American spelling whereas labelled is chiefly the British spelling. It should be noted, co-writer Wash Westmoreland is British.

Alice was an English (American) linguistics professor. She would have correctly written the American version.

There is no "correct" American version. Both are acceptable in America.

Secret Window (2004)

Revealing mistake: When Mort stops at the gas station to talk to Ted, and he gets out of his Jeep, the key is still in the ignition but there's no dinging from the door being opened (which we know it does from an earlier scene).

Forrest Gump (1994)

Revealing mistake: When Forrest is playing ping pong in the gym and an officer comes to give him his discharge papers, Forrest reaches for his paddle and the ball but when he picks up his hand, there is no ball although he is acting as if there were. The ping pong scenes used CGI to put the balls into the scenes and this was obviously overlooked.

Plot hole: When Harry and Ron transform into Crabb and Goyle, he doesn't take off his glasses so then Malfoy can comment on them. Goyle doesn't need glasses - Harry's eyesight should've been immediately blurry, and he would have taken them off.

The Isolation Permutation - S5-E8

Factual error: Amy is sitting outside a liquor store that shows a sign indicating it is open 24 hours. However, that's a crime in CA. Any on-sale or off sale licensee, or agent or employee of that licensee, who sells, gives, or delivers to any persons any alcoholic beverage or any person who knowingly purchases any alcoholic beverage between the hours of 2 o'clock a.m. and 6 o'clock a.m. of the same day, is guilty of a misdemeanor.

Suggested correction: If he was acting normally (for Sheldon), he wouldn't. However, Sheldon isn't acting as he normally would due to lack of sleep, and his obsession with solving a problem.

Andy Benham Premium member

The severity of his phobia would not be minimized by lack of sleep.

MovieFan612 Premium member

Sheldon's mind is distracted by the problem he is trying to solve. He grabs other people's food, he allows Raj to touch his food, he handles dirty cutlery at the cheesecake factory, All characteristics that would be present if he was acting normally. The fact that he is in the ball pit is simply an extension.

Ssiscool Premium member

Severe sleep deprivation could certainly affect how Sheldon reacts to phobias. The brain requires sleep to function and with a severe lack of sleep, the brain is no longer able to send the signals that alert Sheldon to his fear of germs.

Secret Window (2004)

Answer: One possible answer is that this may be an inside joke and a nod to Johnny Depp for being a Barbie Doll collector. He reportedly has a large Barbie collection, mostly of special editions and celebrity versions. He originally bought them for his daughter, but continued collecting even after she became older.

raywest Premium member

Answer: The Barbie doll is blonde, like Amy. Mort might have found the doll somewhere and handled it roughly because of his urge to hurt Amy.

Answer: Heads Up, developed by Ellen DeGeneres. I believe it originally began on her talk show with the use of index cards.
