Correction: Breakfast food at a diner doesn't take much time to prepare and this restaurant had an excellent cook.

Pilot (2 hours) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: The dead (not counting reapers, who are undead) aren't corporeal - that is, they can't touch stuff and people pass right through them. So how can the woman who gets crushed by the piano lock Roxy out of her van?


Correction: Also in the Pilot, we see that when angry enough the dead can affect things. For example, George causes the door to move at the after-funeral dinner, as well as forming the word "Moist" with the magnets on her refigerator. Most people don't affect things, but this same episode shows that it's possible.

Reaping Havoc - S1-E5

Corrected entry: The picture that George takes of Betty comes out looking like the Betty that George and the viewers always see, but it should have come out looking like Un-Betty, who would be completely different.


Correction: Betty appearing as herself was deliberate. George took the photo just as Betty was preparing to jump into the vortex. Instead of appearing as Un-Betty, she appeared as herself to signify that she had undergone a metaphysical change.


Sunday Mornings - S1-E9

Corrected entry: Georgia tells Charlotte that Rube and Roxy are her "stepfather and his wife." But Rube could only be Georgia's stepfather if his wife were Georgia's mother, making Roxy and Rube Georgia's "mother and stepfather." Even if the relationship that Georgia described could possibly occur through a complicated series of remarriages and custody battles, it should have spurred a question from Charlotte, which it did not.


Correction: George spurted the first thing that came to her mind, and Charlotte just didn't catch it.
