Equipment - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: During this episode Brackett is wearing a tie with white, light blue, and dark blue broad stripes, which should be tied in an identical manner in consecutive shots, but it's not. One example is when Brackett examines the tree surgeon, but when he waits in the hall with Morton and Dixie while Malcolm takes x-rays, Brackett's tie is tied differently, and when he walks back into the room the tie reverts back.
