The Million Dollar Idea - S3-E12

Character mistake: When Ricky sits down to calculate by hand how much Lucy and Ethel have spent on supplies to make and sell their salad dressing, he adds $7.21 for the groceries, $1.20 for the jars, and 10 cents for the labels. He says his total is $8.31. He miscalculated; the correct total is $8.51. Ironically, his profit calculation is correct at 3 cents a jar. (00:15:10)

Continuity mistake: When Ethel says "He's never forgiven Ford for scooping him with the horseless carriage" Lucy is laughing. The shot changes, she is no longer laughing.
