Goofs: Adrianna informs Jane and Lisbon that she and Jason Sands planned run away on 'the sailboat', and that Jason was a good sailor who would teach her. Sands' boat is a flybridge motor yacht, not a sailing vessel.

  • At the end, when explaining how he knew the wife had lied, Patrick said the wolf in "Peter and the Wolf" is the bassoon, not the duck as the wife had stated. The wolf is actually the French horn whilst the Grandpa is the bassoon.

Now You Know--Every episode title contains a reference to the color red, like "Paint it Red", "Scarlett Fever", "Russet Potatoes", or "Bloodshot". This is because Patrick Jane's nemesis is the ingenious sadistic serial killer, Red John.
