  • Trivia

    • Continuity Goof: In the scene where Olaf Olafsen is lifting the weight and Dr. R.M. Bunk trips him, in the close-up of their feet has Olaf wearing a pair of Converse (nylon and suede, blue and white) sneakers.  Before and after the close-up, Olaf is wearing a pair of Adidas (nylon and suede, blue and yellow) sneakers.  This is a continuity goof in editing the episode.
