When Lizzie is in the restaurant with Mickey, Fred pours her glass of water into her lap. When Fred puts the glass back down on the table, you can hear that the glass is made out of plastic. A few seconds later, Fred is holding Lizzie's wrist and knocks the glass over onto the floor, which then shatters as if it was made of glass, not plastic.
