Goofs

Lisa asks the ticket agent if the plane is ready just as Oliver is handing him the $18.30. Lisa is shown asking when can the little girl get on board so it doesn't show the money changing hands but now the ticket agent has the bills in his hand and is counting it. When he finishes he straightens the bills out and is holding them in his left hand while explaining to Oliver about the ladder. After Oliver mumbles that maybe they should let Lori take the train and as the ticket agent is explaining it was just a joke to make the passengers laugh he folds the stack of bills in half. Then he further explains it keeps their minds off the holes in the wings and when they switch shots of Oliver facing him and asking "what?" the ticket agent starts counting the money again the bills now unfolded. They switch back to the first shot and the bills are folded again and he's no longer counting them. See more »
