  • Trivia

    • Goof: Near the end of the episode, Jenny runs away from school and heads to Marvin's house at what is obviously recess time, since all the children are outside playing. When she finally leaves Marvin's, she runs into Laura, who asks where she's been, further mentioning that she went to school to pick Jenny up, but she wasn't there. If Jenny went missing in the middle of the school day, it's incredibly unlikely that Laura wouldn't have known about it until she came to pick her up at the end of the day. At the very least, Miss Plum would have run and told Almanzo, who worked across the road at the mill. He would have contacted Laura, and people would have been out searching for Jenny, especially in light of the fact that the child was not physically healthy.
