Plot hole: In real life Oliver would never have put up with Mr. Haney's nonsense, especially being a NYC lawyer, Mr. Haney would have been sued countless times.

Continuity mistake: In the opening, when Oliver goes to grab Lisa's hand, he moves his left hand. When the camera looks at Lisa, Oliver is reaching with his right hand.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Other mistake: When the phone pole was installed with a "butt set" to talk with, they used it upside down for a long time. Someone must have brought it to the director, because they finally corrected the problem.

Wings Over Hooterville - S2-E1

Factual error: In a flashback scene, Oliver is hanging from a tree after getting shot down in WWII. They ask him where he is from, and he says the US Air Force. The US Air Force wasn't formed till 1947. During WWII, it was the Air Corps.
