  • Season 3 Episode 7: Ultrawoman

  • Goof (probably deliberate):  The Social Security numbers listed for the Newtrich sisters have letters in them.  Real SSNs only have numbers in them.  Presumably, the producers listed impossible SSNs in order to make sure that they wouldn't accidentally show a legitimate SSN belonging to a real person.

  • According to The Daily Planet's DataNet database, Lucille and Nell's parents, Penelope Anne Newtrich and Louis William Newtrich, are both deceased, and their only family is Eugene "Gene" Newtrich, who is currently serving a 10 year prison term at Metropolis Federal Prison.  Their current addresses are unknown; for both of them, their last known address was 1414 Top Blvd., Metropolis.

    According to DataNet, Lucille Newtrich is 5'10" with blonde hair and blue eyes.  She was born on November 12, 1954, and her Social Security Number is A47-3Y-P468.  She went to Georgia Peach High School, where she was Homecoming Queen from 1970-1972.  She attended the University of Metropolis, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Social Etiquette.  Her last employer was the First National Bank of Metropolis, 1617 Embezzlement Street, Metropolis; she was fired on November 5, 1994.  In addition to being Homecoming Queen, she was voted "Most Likely to Be Divorced by 30" and "Most Dangerous Woman in Her Class."

    Regarding Cornelia "Nell" Newtrich, according to DataNet, she is 5'6" with brown hair and blue eyes.  She was born on June 27, 1958, and her SSN is C4L-8T-G4K2.  Like her sister, she attended Georgia Peach High School, where she was Computer Club President.  She attended the University of Metropolis, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Masters' degree in Laser Technology.  Her last employer was the Laser Research Division of Unitech, from which she resigned on November 7th, 1994.  She won the "Women's Science Award" and an Honorable Mention from the Absent-Minded Professors, and was voted "Most Likely to Be Smart."

  • Goof: When Lucille is reading the newspaper about Ultrawoman's first appearance, when she helped Superman put out the fire in front of the Daily Planet, you can see that the photo in the newspaper shows her outfit colored blue. This is most likely a printing error, because in reality, Ultrawoman's costume is pink.

  • Goof: At minute 30, when Lois/Ultrawoman and Clark talk in the workshop, and the camera is on Clark, the movement of Lois' jaw doesn't match the words she is heard speaking.

  • When Ultrawoman puts out the fire at the Daily Planet, the shields on the shoulders of her costume are blank, but later they have a U and W on either side. Obviously, after she was christened Ultrawoman Mrs Kent added the detail to her costume.

  • Goofs: When Ultrawoman saves Nell from jumping off the building you can see part of the platform when they are descending. Later, when Clark is kidnapped and tied to a chair, as the chair falls backwards, you can see his hands free in the air, then as he is running away his hands are tied up again.

  • Lois and Clark get engaged in this episode.

  • Goof: When Lois reads the messages on the flowers, Clark finds one from Antonio Banderas, crunches it up throws it on the table, Lois picks it up from the floor.

  • Nitpick: Since it is explained that Superman's body has an "aura" of invincibility around it, shouldn't this also apply to Lois as Ultrawoman? Therefore, her shoes should have been within her aura during the truck stopping and not been damaged. Though it is possible that the aura isn't strong enough to extend to the heels since the aura extends only a few millimeters beyond her skin.

  • Goofs: When Superman gets the tarp to snuff out the fire in front of the Daily Planet as he walks towards it the cape has no "S" on the back. Also, when Ultrawoman saves the sister from jumping off the building as she brings her down you can clearly see the platform which the actresses are standing on as they descend.

  • Nitpick: Why are the flowers adressed to Ultra Woman sent to The Daily Planet, and placed near Lois' desk? After all, she has nothing to do with Ultra Woman, as far as anyone knows.

  • Season 3 Episode 6: Don't Tug on Superman's Cape

  • If you look closely at the vehicle that Tim and Amber Lake own in their room of valuable possessions, it looks very similar to the Batmobile of the superhero Batman. Tim says the car is one of a kind and Amber says that they are "Batty" about it.

  • Nitpick: Tim Lake, disguised as Bad Brain pretending to be Superman, is more than a stretch. Tim Lake has a much heavier build than Bad Brain, and Bad Brain is much more slender yet taller than Superman. Bad Brain and Lake also have brown hair, but he doesn't wear a wig.

  • The lost arms of Venus de Milos were also in Lex Luthor's secret collection in "The Foundling" episode.

  • Nitpick: When they cage Lois, then later they cage Superman looks like they swapped cages. But perhaps they moved the cages themselves to make their position within the gallery more aesthetically pleasing to the Lakes.

  • Season 3 Episode 5: Just Say Noah

  • In the opening scene, when Lois & Clark are coming out of the theater, the poster behind them is for the movie Fair Game starring Cindy Crawford and William Baldwin.

  • Goof: When Lois and Clark are walking to her apartment, Clark tells her that he was wrong. As he said his line, the shadow of a production member carrying a light, is visible on the wall.

  • Goof
    When Lois tears her dress and finds her suitcase was left behind, she ends up wearing Clark's shirt and jeans. They look a little big on her but nowhere near as big as Clark's clothes should be on her.

  • Goof: When Star translates the torn page that Lois found, she claims that the page is in Aramaic and from The Dead Sea Scrolls. In fact, it is neither. The Dead Sea Scrolls are an ancient group of writings, written from 200 BC to 68 AD, cotaining copies of Biblical books, hymns, prayers, and other Jewish writings in several languages: Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic. Since they were not discovered until 1947, a centuries-old printed book could not have contained any selections from them.

    In fact, the torn piece of paper is in fact an excerpt from the (Hebrew, not Aramaic) work Shulchan Arukh, a compendium of Jewish religious law compiled by the 16th-century Rabbi Joseph Karo of Safed. The particular page that was removed from the book contains the end of the section containing laws relating to the reading of the Torah scroll, and the beginning of the section of laws dealing with the construction of synagogues.

  • Jennifer Hooper who played Kathy, had a very small part as a screaming passerby in the season 2 episode "Target: Jimmy Olsen!".
