Goofs & Errors[]

  • When Mary and Lucy are pretending to be pregnant and they sit down on the bed and the phone rings, they get up and jump for the phone before it rings. You have to catch it just right to notice. They jump for it less than a second before it but if your watching closely the you will notice.
  • At the end of the episode when Renee (Ashlee Levitch) is singing, you can tell they recorded the sound at a different time as the lips and the words of the song do not match up in spots. Ashlee Levitch sung although it was most likely recorded on a soundstage.
