The Kleptomaniac - S1-E27

Revealing mistake: When Ricky brings home the psychiatrist, in all the long shots of the living room from the time Ethel walks around the coffee table toward Fred, we can see that all four coffee table legs have been propped up on stone blocks.

The Kleptomaniac - S1-E27

Visible crew/equipment: When Lucy opens the closet door to show Ethel all the donated stuff for the bazaar auction, the boom mic dips down into view at the top of the screen. (It looks as if it may have been a double mic). (00:02:25)
