At the end of the movie, as Mr. Rogers is filming the outro of the episode he takes off his shoes, puts on his sport jacket, and buttons the top button of his sport coat as he approaches the door. Immediately afterward the director yells cut and Mr. Rogers walks behind the camera to watch the filmed scene on a TV screen. In the playback of the scene he just filmed, he doesn't even touch the button on his sport coat as he walks toward the door.
