Goofs

In the courtroom, after the lawsuits are resolved and the Mertzes and Ricardos leave, the judge decides he wants to look at his TV set, which they had used for a re-enactment. As he starts down the stairs from his bench, the door to his chambers is open. The camera cuts to a wider shot, and the door is closed. He proceeds to connect the two loose wires at the back of his set, just as Ricky had done in the earlier scene which led to the argument in the first place. A puff of smoke rises from the back of the set, and the judge fans it away with the arms of his robe. When the camera once again goes to close-up, and the judge is still waving the smoke away, his chambers door is open again. See more »
