Though it's rare, Odyssey writers will occasionally make a mistake
in their writing or research. Here's a partial list.

The Biggest Goofs
- The Land Around
Whit's End goof --
One of the most talked about Odyssey goofs, this one deals with conflicting
reports about who owns the land around Whit's End. Let's take a look
at the facts.
Recollections -- Quite obviously in this episode, Whit says he will
buy the "Fillmore Recreation Center and its adjoining land..."
The Curse -- Whit himself tells Connie and Eugene "you both
know that I don't own the land around Whit's End, [I only own] the
Moving Targets -- Glossman says "the land Whit's End sits is
surrounded by the city. The building belongs to you, that's all."
Some have argued that Glossman was lying (which would be very in-character
for him), but this doesn't make much sense because the council confirms
this "fact" in 329: The Return.
The Return -- Jason and Jack discuss their thoughts on Whit buying
the place. Jason says he can't imagine why his dad didn't buy the
land around the building. Jack says it was probably all he could
manage. While this conversation is interesting, it probably isn't
crucial since Jack and Jason weren't around at the time and may not know
for certain either way about Whit's End.
- SOLUTION: If looking for plausible
answer, there is perhaps an option. Maybe between the time that
Fillmore Recreation Center was bought and the time of "The Curse",
through some sort of legal wrangling, Whit had to give up ownership of
the land. Perhaps he wanted to sell it back for some reason.
The point, however, is that Whit said from his own mouth he did not own
the land even though we know he bought it. Or do we?
In this episode, we never actually hear the complete legal documents being
read. Surely there is more to buying a piece of city property
than simply saying you will buy it and the city council voting.
It would be necessary for some paperwork to be signed, etc. Maybe
when the actual deed was drawn up, Glossman did some changing of the deal
and Whit decided not to fight it because he was only really interested
in the building anyway. All in all, there is certainly a possible
explanation of how Whit did not own the land in these episodes.
However, this entire point may be rendered moot by Phil
Lollar 's admission in The Complete Guide to Adventures in Odyssey
that they goofed.
- The Lucy Who?
goof -- It's Lucy
Cunningham, er, Lucy Shultz, er...Lucy Cunningham-Schultz. The Lucy
Who? debate is probably the second biggest Odyssey goof. So what
is Lucy's last name and how does it match up with her history? Find
Choices -- Lucy talks to her dad. (This must be Hal Cunningham.)
Our Best Vacation Ever -- Mary Barclay says that Lucy's father "Hal
Cunningham" (Lucy's father) works with George Barclay.
The Battle, Part 1 -- Doc Morton asks if Whit, Eugene, and Connie
are here to see "the Cunningham girl."
The Big Broadcast -- Tom says that Lucy's last name is Schultz.
Lucy confirms this.
- For episodes after this, Lucy
was alternatively referred to as Lucy Schultz or Lucy Cunningham-Schultz.
In fact in 233: Thy Will Be Done, Lucy tells
Mr. Ginnsmore "Lucy Schultz" is fine. "What's with
the Cunningham?" he asks. "It's a long story," she
says. You're telling me!
Our Daily Bread -- George Barclay tries to get a job at the Odyssey
Times after he loses his job elsewhere, but he's turned down.
The Truth About Zachary -- This is the episode where the writers tried
to clear up this whole debate, but they actually made it an even bigger
mess. Here are the goofs within the goof:
- Lucy says her father (Hal
Cunningham) was killed in a car accident when she was nine.
It's possible that she was about nine in "Choices" and "Our
Best Vacation Ever."
- She then says that her
mom married a man named Schultz, but that doesn't explain why she
used Schultz and Cunningham-Schultz alternatively.
- Finally, Lucy says that
her father worked for the Odyssey Times. But if he worked
for the Times, that means that George Barclay worked for newspaper,
since Mary said he worked with Hal in "Our Best Vacation Ever."
And if George worked for the Times, he wouldn't go looking
for a job there just after her lost his job in "Our Daily Bread."
- The writers did try to
fix this goof and were only somewhat successful. (Her strange attraction
to Richard Maxwell around the time of "The Battle" could
have been nicely explained if her dad had just died. It also might
have explained how depressed Lucy was around that period in Odyssey.)
However, the Odyssey Times reference is still a goof.
But I suppose it's just water under the proverbial bridge now. (A
special thanks to Kit for clearing up this last point.
The Other Goofs
The New Kid in Town -- Shawn says that she could see all the way to the
bottom of Crater Lake. Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United
States and its bottom cannot be seen.
-- Whit says that Davey knocking over the backstop was a coincidence. It's
clear from later episodes (such as 47:
A Single Vote and
others) that Whit does not believe in coincidences. (Contributed by David)
Stormy Weather -- Near the end of this episode, when Mrs. Kendall comes
into the shop, we don't hear the sound of the door bell.
- 40: The
Case of the Secret Room, Part 2 -- In this episode, Whit says "I
haven't done this much digging since I was in the army." However,
as made clear in AIO93 and AIO94,
Whit was in the navy.
Very slight possibilities:
- Whit "transferred from the
army to the navy (quite unlikely and we've never heard about it).
- Whit used army collectively (i.e.,
"armed forces") to refer to the military in general (somewhat
unlikely for someone in a specific branch of the military).
- Whit lied (which is simply not
a possibility since Whit NEVER lies!).
- 49: Thank
You, God -- In this episode, Whit says that when he was young, his family
"moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where my father...taught at Duke University,"
Duke University is in Durham, not Raleigh.
The Reluctant Rival
-- In this episode, Whit tells Monty that he'll be staying in Uncle Jerry's
old room. But in 18: A Member of the Family, Part 2
Whit says that the Whittaker family moved to Odyssey after Jerry died. (Contributed
by Ian Chai)
- 115: An
Act of Mercy -- Officer O'Ryan calls Bart Rathbone "Bill" in
this episode. (Turn up the volume when O'Ryan and Bart/Bill are talking
about teaching Rodney a lesson.) This is probably because the script
was adapted from an earlier "Officer Harley" script (AIO23:
The Quality of Mercy) and that father was named Bill.
- 117: The
Trouble with Girls -- In this episode, Curt Stevens says "my
mom packed his lunch." However, in 150:
Home is Where the Hurt Is, Curt says that his mom left them when he was
- 125: All's
Well with Boswell -- At the
end of the episode, Robyn and Jesse are scolding themselves for leaving the
door open, but this does not make sense. As they are leaving, earlier in the
episode, there is a distinct sound effect of them closing the back door -
so actually they DID close it! (Contributed by April)
- 139: Melanie's
Diary -- In this episode Eugene states he doesn't keep
a journal but simply memorizes everything. However, in 267:
...It Ended with a Handshake it's made clear Eugene keeps
a diary on his computer and in 330: The Time
Has Come he inputs into the Imagination Station his diary
of his complete life in Odyssey, and sees parts of his life before and around
this episode, when he searches his life using the Imagination Station.
Therefore, he must have in fact been keeping a journal.
- 142: Train
Ride -- Toward the end of this episode, Whit tells Inspector McGreavy,
"You showed me your manuscript about the History of Reading Jael..."
This references a line earlier in the episode in which the Inspector says,
"What say...you look over the roughs of my book." However, before
the two of them could look at the book manuscripts, they saw the "murder"
on the back of the train. Whit never looked at the manuscript, and it's highly
unlikely he would stop investigating a murder to read a book.
East Winds Raining -- The flashback story takes place on Dec. 5-7,
1941. At one point, the character Joe Finneman is listening to the radio and
hears the song "Laura." This would have been impossible. "Laura" is the title
song from a film made not made until three years later in 1944. (Contributed

- 176: The
Star, Part 1 -- Proclus says that the temple is nothing compared to the
Colosseum in Rome. The story is taking place sometime between 4BC and 2BC
or there about, during the reign of Caesar Augustus (whose reign was from
27BC to 14AD). But the Colosseum was not even ordered built until the reign
of Vespasian, whose reign was from 69 to 79 AD. (Contributed by Paul Baser)
- 195: Father's
Day -- At
the end Connie says, ?I couldn?t get a seat on your flight.? But what about
April? From what we hear, Connie presumably books their seats before her dad
tells her he is married again. Where did April?s ticket come from? And wasn?t
it a little silly of Bill to let Connie make the arrangements before telling
her there will be one more person with them? So did Connie give up her seat
to April before she came to see her dad the next morning? (Contributed by
- 197: The Midnight Ride -- After the "shot heard 'round the world," Major Pitcairn is heard ordering his men to fire. Historically we know that Major Pitcairn rode among his men ordering them not to fire and they disobeyed his orders. (Contributed by Tom.)
- 201: Fair-Weather
Fans -- In this episode, Isaac's mother is Doc Morton, and Isaac even
says that she works in a hospital. However, her voice sounds nothing
like Isaac's mother in AIO86: Isaac the Insecure.
- 203: Double
Trouble -- At the end of this episode, Whit said he got a newspaper in
the mail last night that contained information about yesterday's events.
Nothing coming by mail could contain information about an event the same day.
Aloha, Oy!, Part 2 -- When Jimmy, Lawrence, and Iowa are at Pearl Harbour,
Jimmy and Lawrence look around and comment on "all the battleships." This
is incorrect, since the United States Navy no longer fields battleships, rather
frigates, destroyers, cruisers, and aircraft carriers. Although there is a
campaign to bring the USS Missouri back to active service, this has not happened
yet. While it is possible for a civilian to mistake other military boats for
battleships, it seems unlikely for Lawrence, whose father is in the navy,
and for Mr. Iowa, who is a tour guide. (Contributed by Paul)
258: Aloha, Oy!, Part 3 -- The boys and Iowa walk
onto the USS Farragut, which Jimmy refers to as "a real live battleship!"
In fact, the USS Farragut was the first Coontz Class Guided Missile Destroyer,
commisioned on December 10, 1960, and finally decommisioned on October 31,
1989. Of further note, all battleships are named after U. S. states (with
the exception of the Kearsarge). (Contributed by Paul)
- 265: War of
the Words -- Eugene remarks
that "just last week, I re-calibrated my barometer to study what the effect
would be if the Earth's atmosphere were made up of three percent nitrogen
instead of four." The earth's atmosphere is 78% nitrogen, not 4%. Surely Eugene
should know that. (Contributed by Drew)
- 266: It Began
with a Rabbit's Foot... -- In 260: Naturally, I Assumed,
Whit explains, "See, I've always
doubted the wisdom of two co-workers getting involved that way [referring
to a romantic relationship, presumably between Connie and Eugene]." Yet
in "...Rabbit's Foot," Whit quickly hires Katrina. Does he not realize
Katrina and Eugene were in a 'special relationship'? 254: Truth,
Trivia, and 'Trina seems to suggest somewhat otherwise. Whit does protect
his innocence: "Maybe I should have talked to you about it before offering
her a position. I guess I didn't realize that your relationship with her was
so . . . advanced. In fact, I haven't had the slightest idea of what your
relationship was." So
perhaps there's no open-and-shut case against Whit; still, I've always viewed
his quick hiring of Katrina suspiciously in light of his co-worker relationship
comments. (Contributed by Drew)
- 290: A
Name, Not a Number, Part 1 -- In the final scene of this episode, Mustafa
injects Dr. Blackgaard with a syringe that (he thinks) contains the Ruku virus.
Dr. Blackgaard falls to the floor and "dies" in a few seconds.
Viruses simply do not work this way; it takes time for viruses to infiltrate
the body and destroy it. The most deadly viruses that are known to exist
take days to kill a person. It simply could not happen in a few seconds.
Major poisons could kill a person that quickly, but a virus could not.
Now the obvious explanation is that Blackgaard did not really die. However,
there was at least one person there who should have realized that Blackgaard
could not have been killed that quickly by a virus Tasha
Forbes. Tasha is a molecular biologist and had spent years working
on the virus. She should have knowns that something was very fishy when
Dr. Blackgaard died that fast.
- 293: A
Code of Honor -- In 262: A Prayer for George Barclay,
Whit says that George Barclay painted Emma Douglas's garage. However, in this
show, Emma Douglas said that Billy McPherson was the last person to paint
her garage. Billy painted it long before George could have. (Contributed
- 309: The
Perfect Witness, Part 1 -- Jenny's mother in this episode has a different
voice in this episode than she has in AIO206: Pen Pal.
In fact, her voice in Pen Pal is the same voice that Detective Ethan.
The Perfect Witness, Part 1 -- In episode 267:
...It Ended with a Handshake,
Eugene mentions the AUTOEXEC.BAT file on Bernard's computer. A few other comments
in this episode confirm that Bernard has a MS-DOS/Windows PC. When Eugene's
computer acts up, it says, "Non-system disk. Replace and strike any key
to continue." This is a MS-DOS PC message. However,
in "The Perfect Witness, Eugene starts up his desktop computer (at 22:52),
and the distinctive Apple Mac II chime plays. Apple users are often fiercely
loyal and almost always stubbornly anti-Microsoft. Thus, it seems unreasonable
that Eugene, a Mac user, would also have a laptop PC and advise Bernard
to get a PC. Of course, there
are several plausible explanations for this. Perhaps Eugene realized that
(even in 1994, when this episode was created) PCs are more ubiquitous than
Macs, and wanted Bernard to have the more commonplace machine. Certainly we'd
expect a computer scientist such as Eugene to be familiar with both systems,
so perhaps this is the case.

The Perfect Witness, Part 1 -- Captain
Quinn introduces Detective
Ethan "from the County Sheriff's office." This claim becomes troublesome
when in the third episode, Quinn says,
"If you ever want a job in a small town, think of us!" Shortly thereafter,
Detective Ethan remarks, "I was told I couldn't come to Odyssey without
having ice cream at a place called Whit's End." This implies that Ethan
knows very little about Odyssey. If she's from the same county (where Odyssey
is obviously a prominent town), can she really know so little about it? Odyssey
is proven to be a prominent town by the
existence of ten computer stores (275:
Second Thoughts), the
existence of multiple elementary schools (261:
Afraid, Not!), the existence
of a daily newpaper (in various episodes), the existence of a college, and
the existence of a mall. (Contributed
- 316: The
Underground Railroad, Part 3 -- During the scene where the rectory catches
fire when Nathan tries to "smoke out" William, Carl says "smoke
filled the church". They weren't in the church; they were in the rectory.
(Contributed by SCWoody.)
The Return -- Blackgaard says, "Your father deprived Europe
and the United States of information that would have benefited both nations
immeasurably." While it's true that Europe is not a nation, but a continent,
it's quite possible that Blackgaard wasn't thinking about what he said and
it's plausible that he made a mistake. (Contributed by Wooton's Warrior)
- 334: The
Final Conflict -- Professor Bovril states that he could have made an "antidote
to the virus" that could have saved Dr. Blackgaard. In fact, once
a person has been infected with a virus, you cannot cure them of the virus.
This can only be done by a vaccine before the person is infected.
- 344: Letting
Go -- Zachary plays a video
of his father's birthday party. In this video, Zachary's voice is changed.
but when we first meet Zachary in 299: The Truth About
Zachary and again in A Touch of Healing, his father is no longer living
but his voice has not yet changed. (Contributed by Michael.)
- 347: St.
Paul: An Appointment with Caesar -- Toward the end of this episode, Emperor
Nero says, "He's my friend! Of course he'll make a good senator!"
and in the background we hear a horse. This is probably implying the
story of the emperor who put his horse in the senate, but that was Emperor
Caligula, not Nero.

and then asks if they can "go across the lake into Canada".

Pursuit -- Both Dwayne Oswald and Brian Brainard agree in this episode
that Robert E. Lee led the raid on Harper's Ferry. However, the raid
was actually led by John Brown.
- 421: Telemachus,
Part 2 -- At the Colosseum scene toward the end of this episode, the crowd
supposedly gives the gladiators "thumbs up" as the "let him
live" sign and the "thumbs down" as the "kill him"
sign. However, this is historically inaccurate. According to Brewer's
Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, "In the ancient Roman combats, when
a gladiator was vanquished it rested with the spectators to decide whether
he should be slain or not. If they wished him to live, they shut up their
thumbs in their fists; if to be slain they turned out their thumbs."
- 425: Blackgaard's
Revenge, Part 2
- Julius Caesar is seen by Aubrey
and Blackgaard in the Colosseum. Caesar was murdered in 44BC, more than
100 years before Vespasian ordered the Colosseum to be built. (Contributed
by Paul Baser)
- Many have argued that the entire
premise of this show is a goof. Eugene says that Blackgaard planted
the virus in the Imagination Station when he and his minions took over Whit's
End back in Darkness Before Dawn, around the
episode of 331: Checkmate. But then in
334: The Final Conflict, Jellyfish says that
Blackgaard is planning to blow up the tunnel and "it's been part of
his plan the whole time." Why would Blackgaard plant a virus
in a place that he was going to blow up days later? Others have pointed
out that several Imagination Station trips (including 367:
The Decision, 392: When In Doubt...Pray!, 406:
Hide and Seek, and 416:
The Tower) were taken after Blackgaard put the virus in the Station,
but before this episode. Why didn't Blackgaard strike then?
Finally, many highly doubt Blackgaard could have programmed himself into
the Station considered that he said he was "illiterate" of computers
back in 83: The Battle, Part 1.
- While visiting ancient Greece, Aubrey
and Blackgaard see Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle in the same room. Aristotle
was born years after Socrates died.
The Treasure Room/Chain Reaction (Split) -- In 430:
Blind Girl's Bluff, Lisa Mulligan is talking to Bart Rathbone and, while
talking about a microphone/headset, says, "Sounds like something Jared
would like," referring to Jared DeWhite. Aubrey asks "Who's Jared?"
implying that he moved away before Aubrey could meet him. However, in "The
Treasure Room", Aubrey has a lock-picking kit. Lisa asks where she got
it and Aubrey replies, "Jared gave it to me before he left," which
means that she did in fact know Jared. (Contributed by HD, PE)
A Look Back, Part 1 -- This episode says that Connie was Whit's first
employee at Whit's End. However, it was established in 293:
A Code of Honor and Book 1: Strange Journey Back
that Emma Douglas worked at Whit's End long before Connie did.
Bethany's Flood -- In 425: Blackgaard's Revenge, Part 2,
Blackgaard asks Aubrey if she would like to see scenes of history, she said
yes, she likes history. Yet, in "Benthany's Flood," Aubrey calls
history boring. Though this sounds more like Aubrey, it contradicts the earlier
episode. (Contributed by Jonathan)
