Trivia

The endowment ceremony portrayed in this episode sparked an official statement from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who would rather not have the temple ceremonies portrayed on camera or anywhere else outside of the temples. Depending on the individual viewpoint, the ceremonies are meant to be kept out of public view and discussion either because they are too sacred, or because they are commanded by God to be kept secret. The church's official statement says in part: "Certainly Church members are offended when their most sacred practices are misrepresented or presented without context or understanding." While context and understanding are subjective and debatable, there is no doubt that the ceremony is portrayed with proper costuming and atmosphere, almost exactly as it happens in modern temples (post-1990 changes in the ceremony), and virtually word-for-word.

Goofs

To any active Latter-day Saint, the phrase "take [out] my endowments" indicates that the person is going to attend the temple for the very first time. This is known as a "live endowment." Subsequent visits to the temple are made in order to perform proxy endowments for a deceased individual, usually a relative. Although it's possible to borrow a Temple Recommend, a live endowment is a more complex process than a proxy one, and there is really no way that someone could perform a live endowment without the temple workers being fully aware of this. Therefore, depicting Barb secretly "taking" her endowments with her mother's borrowed Temple Recommend is contradictory. See more »
