    • When Micky sits down to eat with the other three boys, he is holding his napkin, but in the next shot the napkin is tucked in his shirt.

    • When Davy, Micky, and Mike are watching Peter make his way to the kitchen with the heavy tray they are standing in front of the drum set. However, when Peter is stumbling around the room you can see the drum set with no Monkees around it.
