The Trial and Error of Aunt Clara - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Samantha opens the door, you can see the 3 pictures by the door. The middle picture is straight. When the camera cuts to Samantha and Aunt Clara and returns to Larry at the door, the middle picture is crooked... a necessary plot point to distract Larry from the desk in the stair case.

The Trial and Error of Aunt Clara - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When the coven is reading the case against Clara, the gavel is lying in the middle of Judge Bean's Bench. The camera cuts to Darrin then returns to the Coven, who is still reading their case against Clara. The gavel is suddenly on the wooden platform. There is no indication the gavel had been used as the coven is still reading their case against Clara.

Darrin Stephens: Sam, don't expect your mother to be gracious. She doesn't do imitations.

Question: In one episode (not sure which one but it was in the Dick York era), Darrin was arguing with Samantha and said something like "Confiding in a woman is like broadcasting by Telstar." What exactly does that mean and what was Telstar?

Answer: Telstar was an early communications satellite system. Darrin, in a particularly sexist manner reflective of this era, is saying that telling a secret to a woman means it is guaranteed to be "broadcasted" to multiple people.
