For the second time the hallway outside of Perry's private door was shown (see #149 TCOT Borrowed Baby). The elevator this time was different from the earlier story. The first one had a round floor indicator and different up / down buttons. Perry and company also had a longer walk to get to his door than they did in the previous story. The way the hall was shown where were Perry's office window and balcony supposed to be? Submitted by H. Mason 4/15/15

+ Now we know why people like radio !! Inconsistencies in set design, sometimes even within an episode, are, of course, common in television, for a variety of technical reasons having to do with lighting, camera angles, etc. (and sometimes to match source material that is itself just plain inconsistent); but they do seem ironic - maybe even galling - don't they, in a show that so often hinges on obscure details and detecting (seemingly) undetectable flaws ?? IMHO the best way to interpret the PM set(s) is in a very general sense - a three-room in line suite, w/ a balcony on one side and (parallel) corridor on the other - and ignore the odd angles and continuity issues for what they are...artistic license.

Especially in his first scene, Hunt Powers has a startling resemblance to the young Clark Gable.

Question: why does Homer say that he has a private way to identify his replicas when it seems that everyone knows that his replicas will not stand on edge? jfh 27Nov2022

When Minerva stands in front of the door to the backroom office, we see behind her the sign telling the hours of operation of the shop. That's a funny place to put your store hours. A customer could only see the store hours after they are already in the shop standing in front of the backroom door, when the store is obviously open. Wouldn't it have been better to post the hours on the front door of the shop where customers could see it? Submitted by Paul's Operative. 5/8/2024.

"The Bluegrass State provided presidents for both sides: Abraham Lincoln for the Union and Jefferson Davis for the Confederacy. Both men were born in log cabins on the Kentucky frontier [less than 100 miles apart]," notes ("Birthplaces of Lincoln, Davis Illustrate Divide in 1860s Kentucky"). Mike Bedard 4.22.15

Rebel without a cause Paul is chided for trying to pass a fake Confederate half-dollar - as an aside, the charge is doubly false as he gave it by mistake, and it isn't fake - so are we to assume the recipient would have been fine taking an authentic Confederate coin ?? Notcom 081922.

Nit-picky possible mistake: As Perry reads aloud from the book on coin collecting ans collectors at the restaurant, he reads a passage regarding the scarcity of gold bullion during the American Civil War. It seems to my ear that Perry pronounces it as "bouillon", like the soup. "Bullion" refers to bricks of gold, like in Fort Knox and, according to Merriam-Webster should be pronounced "BULL-yen". clothears D-Day 2024
