Goofs & Errors[]

  • In this episode we see the Hamilton family talking in the kitchen. Although, the kitchen is completely different from the kitchen that the Hamilton family was being shown in, in the episode "The Color of God" last season. Either they moved from their old house from last season based on the threats of being killed in that episode or the 7th Heaven crew just built a new set for the house.
