Continuity mistake: Willis drops his cap on the road when he runs away. It's still there in the long shot of him running, but after the commercial break we return to the same scene, and as Sam stands up, the cap is no longer on the road behind him.

8 1/2 Months - November 15, 1955 - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: After Sam refuses to sign the adoption papers, he's leaning forward with one hand to his mouth, talking to Mrs. Thailer. When the shot cuts to a wider angle, he's suddenly leaning back with both hands supporting his weight behind him.

The Leap Home (1) - November 25, 1969 - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: The corn stalks behind Sam and Al are rustling and moving in a brisk wind in the two-shots. But in all the close-ups, the stalks are standing perfectly still.

Last Dance Before An Execution - May 12, 1971 - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Sam is strapped into the electric chair, the huge clock on the wall behind him, which is there so that both the prison doctor and the reporters viewing the execution can mark the time of death, reads 7:00. The final scene runs for more than five minutes - after which the clock still reads 7:00.

Last Dance Before An Execution - May 12, 1971 - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: As Sam is marched down the corridor to the electric chair, Raul reaches through the cell bars and begs him to confess. In long shots, Raul's arms are fully extended. But in close-ups, his arms are folded and wrapped around the bars.
