After the old man's car freezes up, he comes walking through the dinning room. He throws his hat on the table, but he misses the table and the hat falls on the floor. After he is seen in the kitchen filling water.

In the next scene you can see a shot of the hat now sitting on the table!

When the old furnace backs up smoke in the kitchen, we see that both dials on the damper on the kitchen wall are closed. Both handles are set all the way to the right.

In the very next shot, the wife moves the top dial to the left, and the bottom dial stays to the right, presumably to open the damper to let the smoke backup go up the chimney.

In the next shot, the position of the dials on the damper control are inexplicably reversed now.
