transcript from The big bang theory

Howard taps the cane against doorpost. While humming he tries to perform a trick, but the cane falls in half with a yellow handkerchief flying out. Howard has to retrieve the pieces.


What's fall in half? It's confusing to me.
It's not a phrase, right?

    Falls in half is odd.

    I would expect separates into to halves / pieces (assuming it's a trick cane, as used by a magician).

    What happened in the episode? Did he let the can fall and it broke into two pieces?

    Maybe it should say "..but the cane falls to the floor breaking into two pieces.."
