Anomaly: Why does the judge say "Jury dismissed" at 47:12? There is no jury in the courtroom. - Submitted by 10yearoldfan, 28 September 2014.
+ The judge said: "Hearing dismissed. Deputy, take this man into custody. Court adjourned." Added by H. Mason 4/3/15
Character Names Miss Young's first name is Sally. jfh 19Jan2017.
Bad Impression: Maybe Con should change his name. Would you want your daughter to go out with a guy named "Con"? Submitted by H. Mason 4/2/15
That's a very realistic face on the bust in the study, almost like a mask. jfh 25Jan2018.
Double Standard: Trudy didn't consider Sumner to be her father but did recognize his brother as "Uncle Adrian." Submitted by H. Mason 4/2/15
+ I'd say this difference is more about affection than relation. I grew up with a woman who has long called me 'Big Brother' because of the affection between us. She has TWO blood-related brothers (one deceased, but she calls/called them brother, too, no double standard there) and her mother calls me 'Son.' Submitted by MikeReese, 5/30/2016
++ Irma and Adrian explain Adrian's closeness to Irma and her mother predates Sumner's marriage to Mona. jfh 25Jan2018.
The court hearing was held in Los Angeles. The exact location of Lake Ganado was never established, but in a phone conversation Irma said it was a 90 minute drive from L.A. Wouldn't that put the case it in another jurisdiction?
>Not necessarily: remember the venue is the county, and LA County, in its 4058 sq mi, stretches far into the mountains (a wag might note that w/ traffic as bad as it is these days it might take Perry 90' just to drive from his office to the courthouse!!). Less credible, perhaps is why Andy is on the case, since he's LAPD...but we've seen before that the show has a very elastic definition of police beats. Answered by Notcom, 042817.
That staircase set appears yet again - third time in the last seven episodes. This time, however, what is usually an exterior door leads to Sumner's study. Sorry, but the line about a "part time itinerant folk singer" sounds like something from a Carol Burnett sketch. DOD 1/25/18
Since the killer admitted stealing the formula (presumably from Leo's brother) was Leo Lazaroff entitled to any money? After the case Leo left the courtroom instead of approaching Perry or Mr. Burger to ask if he could make a claim. Submitted by H. Mason 4/2/15
