When Dan and Fitzhugh emerge from the clay or wax or whatever, both their uniforms are spotless.
We never find out: why wasn't Betty able to raise Steve on the radio, even at "full power".
Several times up on the tabletop, the shadows of Steve and the dog don't match: the dog's shadow points one direction while his points another.
50-year technology gap: the wax museum has a "walking" animatronic/clockwork statue
Within walking distance: a pet store
Supposedly alien planet: the giants in this have very human names, including the generic "Dr. John Howard".
So how the heck do the giant's names work, anywhere? Garak's first name appears to be "Garak" (his wife and uncle call him that). But the wife is referred to as "Mrs. Garak".
Why is the SID man looking in garbage cans for the little people he just spotted on the ground? Does he think they somehow climbed up into them?
Within walking distance: Garak's house. Interestingly, we get a clear reference of distance here: Mark says it is 3.8 miles from the Spindrift. Since the giant world is on a 1-to-12 scale, this means that there is only 557 giant yards between the forest/park the ship is in, and Garak's house. If he meant giant miles, then the house would have been 46 Earth miles away, which would have taken the Earthlings about 15 hours to traverse.
Within walking distance: a goldsmith
Supposedly alien planet: although previous episodes have talked about "Earth money" as an alien concept, in this episode the term "10 million dollars" is bandied about.
Within walking distance: Biff's club and apartment
Supposedly alien planet: boxing, a more-or-less octave musical scale ("The High-C Club"), trumpets, and giants with human names.
When Steve puts Valerie and Barry in the air shaft, when he opens it, the opposite wall only contains an alcove. When they enter it, the opposite wall becomes a passageway.
When Dan tries to contact Fitzhugh on the radio, his voice can be heard over Fitzhugh's radio. Steve grabs the radio and turns it off. However, a few seconds later, Dan and Mark walk off and it's clear that they were only a few feet from Steve and Fitzhugh. They should have heard Dan's voice over Fitzhugh's radio.
When Steve grabs Fitzhugh and hides, he has both hands occupied holding Fitzhugh and keeping him silent. He's also trying to avoid making any noise so that Dan and Mark, standing a couple of yards away, wont' hear him. Despite that, he somehow manages to gag Fitzhugh between shots.
Kobick refers to Dan by his last name (Erickson). This is remotely possible: they have pictures of the little people and Dan and Steve still wear their name tags. Still, it seems kinda odd that he places such emphasis on Dan's last name, given no one has mentioned it to him before. Given so rarely it's used on the show, Kobick seems to know it better than the audience probably does!
It seems that Kobick overhears enough of the Earthlings' conversations (i.e., "Go west to the gully") that, along with the fact they seem to have a general idea of where the Spindrift is, he could come very close to pinpointing its location.
Kobick gets hold of one of the Earthlings' radios and uses it to listen into their transmissions. A good idea, but one which they forget to have him do in future episodes.
Why is Kobick so understaffed? He only has one sergeant canvassing real estate offices and with him for the capture at the end. If they had surrounded the office as thoroughly as the house in "The Chase," they would have had the little people for sure.
