  • Trivia

    • When Doug first comes downstairs with his lap board and reading materials (highlighter and portable light), he actually has the book on the lap board under his arm.  After he starts showing Carrie his materials, the camera cuts to Carrie and then back to Doug. When the camera cuts back to Doug, the book is now missing from the lap board and only the highlighter and light are there.  After Carrie prompts him with what else Doug might need, he jumps up and runs upstairs to get the book.  The book he brings downstairs is the exact book that was on the lap board originally.
