Episode 306 - S3-E6

Deliberate mistake: In the locker scene where Brian confronts Ben about his steroid use, there are no obvious objects on the lockers (such as slats) that would make the cut and bruise on Brian's back. Brian is not tall enough to have been cut by the top of the locker and Ben didn't pick up in his tirade. (00:25:25)

Trivia: "What dreams may come" is from the Shakespeare play Hamlet. It is in his "To Be or Not To Be" soliloquy: "For in that sleep of death what dreams may come/When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,/Must give us pause: there's the respect/That makes calamity of so long life."

Trivia: This book and subsequent movie is loosely based on the Bhagavad Gita. Arjuna (R. Junuh) is counseled by Krishna, one of the most beloved deities in the Hindu pantheon.

Freefall - S10-E8

Trivia: In "Freefall" as Dr. Romano and Neela are going up the elevator to return the forgotten watch, the Musak playing is "Freefalling" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Fitting.

Suckers - S4-E13

Factual error: They talk about the type of tubes used in HIV tests. There are no special tubes specific for HIV testing alone. It is one generic tube that can be used for a multitude of tests including HIV. It did not seem as though Greg knew that she had gone for HIV testing before he ran the tests, so he should not have concluded that it was the type of tube used for HIV testing, only Catherine or Warrick should have made that connection.

Moulin Rouge (2001)

Question: In the beginning of the movie, Christian is living in a flat with a sign that says L'amour on the side of the building. Does the sign change to L'ament by the end of the movie, after Satine dies? Or is it just the angle of the shot? (00:02:20 - 01:58:15)

Nikki

Chosen answer: It is in fact the angle of the shot, the sign L'amour is on Christians building throughout the movie, which means love in French.

Answer: It does say L'ament. I got it from the film script online. toulouse: There was a boy, a very strange, enchanted boy (as we pass the windmill, to Christian's garret, it becomes day. The "L'amour" sign becomes "L'ament." Satine's bird sits in its gilded cage outside Christian's window. The bearded Christian types).
