Goofs: Alan Shore is finalizing the Catherine Piper murder case with closing arguments to the jury. He's walking back and forth in front of the jury. When the camera suddenly cuts to a sitting Catherine Piper, he's also seen sitting next to her, listening to whoever is speaking, in this case, HIMSELF!
Trivia: The music (whistled) that closes out this episode is the theme from The Andy Griffith Show. The connection being that that show opened with Andy Taylor (Griffith) and his son Opie (Ron Howard) walking toward their fishing hole.
