Suggested correction: No, the Petries buy the house with the rock, but swap it with their best friends and buy the house next door. Therefore Jerry and Millie have the rock in the basement.

Rob has to pay half the cost for Jerry to seal his basement every year. The reason why is because Rob's rock redirects water that ends up flooding Jerry's basement.

The Petries did buy the house with the rock. At the end of the episode Rob explains how their rock caused flooding in the Helper's basement.

Factual error: When Rob is on the phone with the Realtor guy they talk about what the Petrie's soon to be house will look like, what's in it, what won't be in it. Yet neither of the houses (Petries and Helpers) are the same in any of the episodes and none of the stuff that is mentioned in this episode are in any episode no sling chairs, no pine wood or panelling etc. The 2 houses are completely different.

Laura Petrie: You wanna end up another Dwight Heatherton, go ahead.
Rob Petrie: Who's that?
Laura Petrie: Dwight Heatheron happens to be an excellent writer who is unknown because he gets no publicity.
Rob Petrie: Then how do you know him?
Laura Petrie: Oh Rob, he's famous.
