The children in the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire" are watching this episode of The Outer Limits.
When the scientists take Allen away in the elevator, it's clear that it's merely a studio mockup. There's no metal strip on the floor to indicate where the floor ends and the elevator begins.
When Harold Finley lifts the large fragment with his mind, the supporting wires are clearly visible.
O.B.I.T. stands for Outer Band Individuated Tele-tracer.
In the scene in which one of the divers is fighting the fish monster underwater, the wires controlling the fish monster are clearly visible.
The Zanti ship is apparently bigger on the inside than the outside. Despite the fact that it is no larger than a small closet (approximately 6' x 6'), hundreds of the foot-long creatures crawl out of the ship.
Around 44-45 minutes into the story when the Zanti ship has landed on the roof, we see several shots of Zantis going out the open door of the ship. There is a piece of broken wood by the door. Sometimes the wood is on the left side of the door, and sometimes it's to the right. It would appear that budget had forced a flipping over of the film to make it look as if the ship is being shot from another angle rather then use more stop animation.
Trivia: This is the only episode of the series where the aliens don't speak English.
The two main characters have the same names as both of Mars' moons.
In this episode, Russell Collins portrays a justice of the peace who suspects that the couple he is marrying is below the age of consent. In the Dick Van Dyke Show episode "Very Old Shoes, Very Old Rice," Rob must re-marry Laura because she was underage at the time of their first marriage, and Russell Collins portrays the judge who performs the ceremony.
An old newspaper in the bridal suite gives the viewer a clue to the contents of the mysterious box. It reads: "The Winterfield Bugle, Saturday, June 15, 1929. Noted Scientist Declares Country Invaded by Enemies from Outer Space. Dr. Mordecai Spazman branded 'comic strip fanatic' by Academy President Harvey Kry, Sr." Harvey Kry, Jr. disappeared on his wedding night when the box was delivered during his wedding reception.
Most episodes of The Outer Limits begin with a short preview "teaser" before the opening and initial credits. This episode has no preview, it begins with a transformation in a garden and goes forward from there.
The string pulling the small "alien" can clearly be seen in the closing scenes of the episode.
Despite the fact that Richard Jr. says that the shield extends down through the house foundation and further, it wobbles several times when someone passes near it or slams their hands on it.
The overhead studio microphone can be seen casting a shadow against a wall as it is moved in the upper left-hand part of the screen, while the alien (preparing for takeoff) is working upstairs in the control panel of the "ride" (spaceship).
In a scene in one of the rooms, the word "Daystar" can be seen on a container. Daystar is the name of the production company for "The Outer Limits."
While the main characters are working in their protective suits, a power cord is clearly seen being pulled across the floor. It's obvious that the cord was not intended for the viewers to see.
The two wires holding up a creature that Jeff Barton sees through his window are clearly visible to the audience.
Plot Holes: Throughout this episode, Eck (the two-dimensional being) is trying to find his way back to a "time-warp" or "rift" back to his two-dimensional world so that he may pass through it and close it, lest something from our three-dimensional plane "like a bird, or a plane" passes through it on accident, causing spacetime to break and the world to be destroyed. This leaves us all to pose the question: do floating air and dust particles not count as three-dimensional objects?
A comma never actually appeared in the title of this episode until its release on video. It was printed as "Behold, Eck!" on the video box.
