Other mistake: When Harry spits baby food on the baby (the camera lens in actuality) in retaliation for the baby spitting food on him and Tommy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt breaks character and laughs uncontrollably and looks at and gestures to off-screen crew members a couple times. (00:06:25)Phaneron
Continuity mistake: When Jennifer comes into work the next day after her dinner date with Dick, her face is covered in hives from an allergic reaction. Later when Dick interrupts her choral group, the hives on her face have disappeared. She and Dick are wearing the same clothes in both scenes, so she couldn't have overcome such a reaction in such a short amount of time. (00:12:30 - 00:15:00)Phaneron
Continuity mistake: In 1-2: "Post Nasal Dick", Harry has a dream about Martha Stewart. But in this episode they panic because they dream and have nightmares and don't know what they are. Shouldn't Harry have panicked when he dreamed about Martha Stewart?electrictears
Other mistake: When Dick is trying to get into the jewelry store, the clerk keeps trying to buzz him in. When that doesn't work because Dick doesn't understand to wait for the buzzer to finish before he tries opening the door, the clerk goes over to the door and unlocks the deadbolt and opens the door for him. If the door was locked by a deadbolt, then a buzzer wouldn't really do anything to unlock the door. (00:14:05 - 00:15:00)Phaneron
Other mistake: While talking to his therapist, Dick tells her that one of the mishaps that he caused in his relationship with Mary was showing up to a fundraiser naked. While true, this doesn't happen until Episode 13 (Rutherford Beauty) - two episodes later. This was due to the fact that most of Season 5 was aired out of production order.Douglasac
Continuity mistake: Dick's plot in this episode is that he learns about the concept of tipping. However, the season 3 episode "Eleven Angry Men and One Dick" showed that Dick was already familiar with the concept of tipping when he tipped a bailiff during a jury selection process.Phaneron
Revealing mistake: In the scene with www.planetsolomon.com, you can see that it is a pre-filmed video (not a live stream as he said), as it has a time slider and play/pause controls etc. (00:13:05 - 00:13:45)cnc_theft_auto
Other mistake: When Dick is up in the tree fort, the aliens are looking at him through their hand binoculars, but the image is taken from the same height as Dick. However, since he is higher than they are, they would be seeing him at an angle. The view as seen would be impossible unless they were at the same height as he was.luke f
Trivia: When the Solomons meet the Big Giant Head at the airport and ask how his flight was, he says that it was horrible because when he looked out the airplane window, he saw something on the wing of the plane. Dick responds that the same thing happened to him. William Shatner appeared in the 1960's Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" in which a gremlin tried to destroy the wing of a plane. John Lithgow appeared in "Twilight Zone: The Movie" playing the same character in the same situation.
