Nitpicks - Season Five
"Having It All"
when the second baby falls ill, the mother tells Dr. Mike
that Mr. Bray has just started the baby bottles. However,
in Washita, part 2, we see Grace buying a bottle from Mr.
Bray to feed the Indian baby. We never did get to see what
Michaela used to feed Katie infant formula in "Having
"All That Glitters"
There is a scene where Grace and Robert E. are having a
special supper at home with Anthony. Grace is dishing up
carrots onto her plate. As she dishes up a spoonful, one
of the carrots falls into her cup!
Michaela is holding Katie against her shoulder and Sully
is standing on the stairs behind her. Katie sneezes and
a stream of water (etc.,) comes flying out of her nose.
"Right or Wrong"
Preston buys a fancy rifle from Loren to go after the bank
robbers. Throughout the show, Preston uses two pistols instead.
Why did he buy a new rifle and not take it with him on the
hunt for the gang?
After Matthew sneaks off to go after the robbers, Michaela
and Sully leave to go after him, fearing for his safety.
Wolf is left behind with Brian at the clinic. Wolf is nowhere
to be seen during the next few scenes where Michaela and
Sully meet up with Matthew and Elias Burch in the woods.
Wolf appears out of thin air after they all decide to go
after the gang together. He first appears magically in the
nighttime scene near the river.
When Dr. Mike removes the bullet from Matthew's shoulder,
she says that the ball is lodged under the clavicle between
the subclavian and pleural arteries. Had the bullet "gone
a little bit either way, we would have lost him."
The subclavian artery does indeed run under the clavicle,
but if it were damaged, Matthew would more likely have lost
the use of his arm than his life (the subclavian provides
blood to the entire arm and much of the shoulder). As for
the pleural artery, my anatomy texts contain no reference
to this vessel. If it does exist, it certainly does not
run under the clavicle and is not a life-essential artery.
