Episode Goofs
When Doug and Barney lift the statue the first time on the soldiers' order, the imprint in the dirt is square, but the base of the statue is octagonal and the same width as the square pattern.

When Haratch looks out the square and checks the statue, the shot is from a few minutes later in the episode when Barney and Doug are hoisting it up. At the point where Haratch looks at it, it should be on the ground covering the sewer grille.
