3rd Rock from the Sun

3rd Rock from the Sun (1996)

3 corrected entries in season 6

Starring: John Lithgow

Genres: Comedy, Sci-fi

The Thing That Wouldn't Die (2) - S6-E20

Corrected entry: At the end of the show the aliens leave and Dick chops Mary's neck to supposedly help her forget he ever existed. However, what about all the others? It makes no sense to make Mary forget them when everyone else would still remember them. How could she explain not knowing Dick when she would invariably have his stuff around or hear others talking about them?

Correction: Dick only erased Mary's memory because she was torn between her love for him and her desire to stay on Earth. It had nothing to do with making sure no one remembered them, just to hopefully help Mary move on with her life.


You Don't Know Dick - S6-E13

Corrected entry: When Dick and Harry call the radio show to try and win Gordon Lightfoot tickets, the DJ asks them to correctly identify Lightfoot's first single in order to win the tickets. Harry answers with "If You Could Read My Mind" and wins. "If You Could Read My Mind" was not Gordon Lightfoot's first single, it was his fifteenth.

Serious B

Correction: The DJ asked what was Gordon Lightfoot's first American single, not what was his first single ever. "If You Could Read My Mind" was also Lightfoot's first charting single in the US, peaking at #5 in 1971.


Season 6 generally

Corrected entry: When Tommy goes to college, he shows up back at home with laundry, saying that he is only an hour away. Later when Tommy is trying to enter a fraternity, Sally goes to help, and when she gets there she claims that it was a four hour trip.


Correction: I don't think this is necessarily a continuity error. Sally says it took her four hours by bus. She may have planned a poor route, or Tommy may have received a ride home from someone.

Dick: I happen to know that every word in that book has been published years before. Perhaps you've read the dictionary!



When Sonja takes Dick's belt, she has it in her right hand, away from Dick. In the next few shots, Sonja no longer has the belt, but it is back around Dick's pants. Yet the next shot (at the door), it's in Dick's hand.



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.
