Goofs

There is some kind of continuity error related to the quiz. When the quiz is shown on screen Alex has rated Donna with these grades: Qualities of Parenthood 18/20; Civic Interest 18/20; Ability of Hostess 18/20; Habits of Thrift 20/20; Interest in Husband's Vocation (no score given); Cooking Ability (no score given). He then says she got a total of 92 for all of questions, which would mean she only got a total of 18 points for the last two questions (i.e., she wasn't a very good cook or that she didn't care about him being a doctor). Presumably when the script was written, it was assumed the was only one other question on the quiz instead of two. See more »
