Continuity mistake: Matlock is inside a jail cell, speaking to a man who has been accused of murder. In an outdoor scene, someone throws a raw egg at the window as Matlock looks out. Inside the cell, as Matlock turns away from the window, the splattered egg has vanished.Steven Lee
Revealing mistake: Ben Matlock is hosting a pre-wedding party for his goddaughter. Several cars are parked on both sides of the street in front of Ben's house. Each time the front door is opened, the view seen from inside the house looking out is the same matte painting used in every episode. It shows a house and trees but no cars.Steven Lee
Character mistake: Billy has second thoughts about selling his late sister's beach house to a developer who plans to tear it down and build a hotel. Billy tells Ben, "She lived the last years of her life here." But in part 1 of this two-part episode, it was established that the woman had lived in the house for only six months.Steven Lee
