Bowling Ballet - S3-E4

Other mistake: At the start of the episode we're shown a preview of the episode's plot: while Fred stretches his leg on the ballet bar his leg gets stuck and when the ballet teacher pushes his leg down, the part of the ballet bar which Fred is leaning on is gone. What's odd is that during this scene within the episode the ballet bar is perfectly intact. (00:00:25 - 00:14:40)
