Goofs

[Possibly intentional] The MacGuffin that everyone is after is an 1865 copy of the Washington Star newspaper; in the last scene Aunt Meg notices (or pretends to notice) an advertisement in the paper for a prix fixe meal including "French fries," a term for fried potatoes that was not in use before World War I.

Quotes

Sam Bolt: He found something in that paper that proved it was a forgery. He was trying to bring it to us for evidence.
Honey West: Well, we've got the paper; we're in good shape.
Sam Bolt: Unh-uh, because they know that I know that they know that I know. They're going to try to close that deal with Paul Wycherly's brother right away!

Honey and Abraham Lincoln
6 July 2015 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

A man shows up at Honey's door with a newspaper from 1865 announcing the assassination of President Lincoln. Is it real or is it a fake? If it's real, the newspaper is worth at least $500,000. The man who brought it to Honey isn't saying - he's dead. And the people who killed him want that paper.

As my rating indicates, I'm not a big fan of It's Earlier Than You Think. Sure, it's got a few good spots like all the guys in kilts running around claiming to be the dead man's brother. But it has much more that I don't care for, like the ridiculous aging ray. It's too ridiculous even by Honey West's standards. Overall, it's a very unsatisfying experience that I cannot rate any higher than 4/10.

For this episode's Name That Character Actor, I'm selecting Leonid Kinskey. In his long career, he appeared in everything from the Marx Bros' Duck Soup to Casablanca to Hogan's Heroes.
