then the next sitting with Dorothy with her hair in braids!
Dorothy and Mike are watching everyone play ball, Mike
has on one outfit, then it cuts to the players, then back
to Mike and it's a different outfit, like it was another
day. Then back to the players, then back to Mike with
the original outfit on again!
the very last scene, Sully slides into home and is on
the ground and his cap falls off - then the camera cuts
away and his cap is on and then falls off again.
Sully hits a grand slam at the end to win the game. Watch
when he gets to home base after knocking Otis out of the
way. He's lying there, reaches up and takes off his cap.
After Loren says, "You're out!" we see Sully remove his
In one shot Dr. Quinn is wearing her hair up and then in
another shot at the same time and she is sitting where she
was before when her hair was up, so in the next shot of

strikes one match to light the fire in the fireplace,
but if you look behind them, there is a roaring fire blazing!
That must have been one magical match!

notice that the music box that Ingrid bought for Matthew
plays the very 20th Century tune "It's Impossible"?
"Fifi's First Christmas"
Brian rides off on Taffy to look for Sarah, and Mike and
Sully are in the background and Sully persuades Mike to
let Brian go, as Brian is riding away you see Jane moving
her arm around her head like she's trying to swat a fly.
I don't think they had flies in December in Colorado!
and Sara went out to cut down a tree. When we see them
lost in the woods, Kyle is dragging a tree that has a
straight cut on the trunk, suggesting he used a saw. If
that's so, where is the saw? Sara doesn't have it.
When Brian goes and gets his horse to go out and search
for Sara, he is wearing his hair as he has always worn it.
But while he's saddling his horse and trying to talk Dr
Quinn into letting him go out alone, you see his hair in
a new hairstyle; all slicked back. Then in the next shot,his
hair is back to the old hairstyle.

When the prototype for the "Home Refrigeration Box" arrives,
the camera does a wide shot of the townspeople unloading
it from the train. Look closely and you'll see Randolph
Cummings (Brandon Douglas) leave Preston's side and walk
behind him and away (presumably to sneak onto the train).
In the next closeup shot of Preston, Randolph is standing
by Preston's side again.
is a point when Sully is on his horse, and he just holds
out his hand and his bag comes flying through the air
into it. Did he maybe use "the Force"?
comes out of the clinic getting ready to leave to track
Noah McBride, and he's carrying his bedroll on his shoulder.
I think he walks over to his horse, the bedroll and everything
else is on the horse and he's not carrying anything. Then
he goes back to the clinic door to say goodbye, and he's
carrying the bedroll again! One minute it's there, the
next it isn't, and then it's there again!

Hank's grandmother is deceived by letters he has been writing
her about being Horace. But in the sixth season episode
where Jake and Hank fight over Teresa (Lead Me Not) he reveals
he is illiterate. How did he write dear old grandma then?
During the episode, the army forces the indians to work
to build cabins to replace their teepees. We see the beginnings
of wood cabins being built. After Cloud Dancing's trial,
the reservation is shown again with all teepees. No evidence
of cabins is shown, even though a wide far away shot of
the reservation is shown.

In the scene where Michaela, Sully, and the kids arrive
home the first time with katie, you see that she is wrapped
in Sully's jacket. If you look when Michaela hands Katie
to Colleen the jacket is still the right way, than when
Matthew helps Michaela down from the wagon, you see the
jacket is inside out, and then they show a close up of
Colleen holding Katie and the jacket is still inside out,
and then she hands Katie off to Brian, and the jacket
is the right way again.
In the scene where the women go off to search for Michaela
and Sully (near the end of part 2 of the episode), the
camera shows Mrs. Quinn, Anthony and Horace waving goodbye
to them. Mrs. Quinn is on the left of Anthony. The camera
immediately cuts to show the faces of the three actors
with Mrs Quinn now to Anthony's right (she should have
been to his left side still).
The day Elizabeth Quinn, Rebecca and Marjorie arrive for
Katie's birth, they go to have supper at the homestead
with Michaela, Sully and the kids. Afterward Michaela
and Elizabeth are drinking tea on the porch and talking
about how Marjorie is so different. Elizabeth is wearing
the same dress she wore that day, and it's obvious they
are having tea after supper. But look at Michaela's dress!
It's a completely different dress than what she was wearing
that day! I think her hair is different too! I don't think
what with being nine months pregnant she would feel like
changing into her "after supper" dress just
to have tea! And if for some reason Michaela did feel
like changing her clothes, why didn't Elizabeth change
After Michaela splinted Sully's leg, and when she was
about to deliver the baby, we see Sully kneeling in front
of her with his legs underneath himself. Wouldn't that
hurt if he had just broken his leg?
Michaela and Elizabeth are in the clinic. Elizabeth is
talking while the camera holds on Mike. Behind her you
see a man on a horse go past.. a few moments later you
see the same man on the same horse go past again, and
yet a few more moments later you see the same guy again
go for a third time. Didn't they have enough extras or
enough horses to go around in the background?
In this episode, we find out that Andrew's father wanted
him to have the best medical training. Later, we find
out that his uncle also is a doctor and that Andrew might
go in to practice with him (this he tells Colleen). In
the episode "A New Begining" Andrew tells Matthew
that he wishes his parents were allive to se hm marry
Colleen. This I understand - Andrews parents could have
died in the period of time between theese episodes. But,
in the movie "The Heart Within," Andrew's father
and mother appear: Andrew's father with an important role
as Mrs. Quinn's doctor and Andrew's mother on few social
