Goofs
Pam's apology letter and her voiceover during the letter are completely different. Letter: Dear Sabrina, I only wanted what I thought was best for my son. But I saw the look on his face when you left and I realized you are what is best for Jason. Whether or not you decide to jump this broom, I want you to have it because of what it means to our family. May you enjoy the same happiness we did. I wish you all the best, Pam Voiceover: "Dear Sabrina, I'm sorry. I feel sick about how I behaved this weekend. I was afraid of being alone. I want you to have this broom because it means more to me than almost anything else in the world. I pray you and Jason have a long happy life together. Pam"

When Aunt Geneva is singing "sexual healing," Sebastian puts his hand on Shonda's thigh. She takes it off and puts it on his own thigh, but in the next shot his arm is resting on the top of his chair.

Quotes
Willie Earl: [to Chef, after catching him being intimate with Blythe] I mean, I know you ain't got your private parts out around all this good food, do you? And, second of all, do you have any kind of relationship with some Vaseline, lotion or anything? Your knees look like you been prayin' in some chicken flour!
