Trivia

The endowment ceremony portrayed in this episode sparked an official statement from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who would rather not have the temple ceremonies portrayed on camera or anywhere else outside of the temples. Depending on the individual viewpoint, the ceremonies are meant to be kept out of public view and discussion either because they are too sacred, or because they are commanded by God to be kept secret. The church's official statement says in part: "Certainly Church members are offended when their most sacred practices are misrepresented or presented without context or understanding." While context and understanding are subjective and debatable, there is no doubt that the ceremony is portrayed with proper costuming and atmosphere, almost exactly as it happens in modern temples (post-1990 changes in the ceremony), and virtually word-for-word.

Goofs

According to practices of the LDS Church, the Bishop and Stake President wouldn't know how long Barb had not paid tithing. Financial records at the ward level are only kept for three years and then destroyed. Bishops typically serve for about five years, so it is therefore unlikely that this would even be the same bishop that she had seven years earlier. See more »
