Odd Facts Know by Few

About 17 minutes into the story, when Andy's sitting on the edge of the table strumming his guitar while Ellie and Aunt Bee are bringing food to the table, and as Ellie sings, the roast turkey is visible and it has already been carved and most of it is missing. About two minutes later Bee announces that the food is ready.
