Goof: In the second to last scene of the episode, when Macgraw has just punched out David, David goes from floating unconscious, completely in the water in one shot, to lying half on the bank of the pond in the next, even though he never regains consciousness and Macgraw never touches him.
Festus had mud on his sleeve after Ms. Royce, who had fallen in the mud, grabs his sleeve. The mud is gone after the scene never to be seen again.
When Kitty and Matt are talking, there is a bad thunderstorm outside, and later Matt is shown riding in the pouring rain. Yet when Kitty goes outside the Longbranch and runs into the bounty hunter, there's not a sign of rain or thunder and lighning at all.
At the start of this episode Matt hands the sheriff a document that is dated June 12, 1875.
Just before Benji and Erlene find Matt, he has been staggering and falling for quite some time. He loses consciousness, falls on his face, does a somersault and ends up on his back. How did his hat stay on?
There is no Gatling gun in this episode. The Gatling gun is in the episode "Morgan", very similar to this one and also starring Steve Forrest.
Before Festus and Newly are about to test the Gatlin Gun, when talking to Mannon, it looks as though there's a small bug on the lens in the right part of the screen. It's noticeable but not easy to see.
Matt claims never to have been to Zavala before, but in the episode "The Mission" from Season 12, he went to Zavala to trail the men who attacked him.

In this episode, Matt suffers a brutal beating from the guards on the Indian reservation. Every time he is seen afterwards, he is holding his left side and grimacing in pain. However, when Mr. Evans finally allows him to be treated, Doc bandages the ribs on his right side instead.
Watch when Doc pours water into the pan to heat the babies' bottles. It appears his kettle is leaking!
When Doc goes into Matt's office after the babies' mother dies, Milburn Stone calls James Arness by his real name instead of his character's name. Doc very plainly says "hey Jim" instead of "hey Matt".
The sign at the Dodge train depot reads:
Dodge City Kansas Elev. 2485 Pop. 996
When Doc walked over to the stove to get a pan of water off you could hear the water boiling. You can clearly see in the pan and there wasn't any bubbles or steam. When Doc moved the pan in to plain sight there still was no steam coming from the pan.
When Henry is in the quicksand, he is at different depths in different shots.
In the scene where they finally approach the water hole, if you look at the prisoner's left hand you can see that the shackles aren't fastened at all. It falls so far down the back of his hand he could have easily slipped it off.
The sheep herder Changra is described as having been brought from Australia with the Tyson family.

When the man at the depot loads his shotgun, you can clearly see the tan marks for a modern watch on his wrist.
