Goofs & Errors[]

  • The Camden's don't use cell phones because the church doesn't have to pay for it. However, when Annie is calling Eric to say she will be home late, she is walking down the sidewalk talking on what seems to be a cellular phone.
  • In the beginning of the episode, when Eric is counseling a couple, the man is leaning back on the couch with his left arm around his fiancé. Then he pulls his arm back to his lap and leans forward to talk to Eric. In the next shot, when they zoom in on the young lady, you see his arm behind her again, but when they move back to him, he's still leaning forward with his arms in his lap.
