Yes, Minister picture

The Official Visit - S1-E2

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where the ministers are all crammed into the train carriage if you look over Jim's shoulder there is a sign ("Notice" "In case of Fire" etc), while the headers are in English the actually paragraphs are written in gibberish.

Break Out the Pampers: Part 2 - S3-E2

Character mistake: Near the end of the episode, when Ms. Rafkin stops by to see the Rush family, Sara greets her by name. Ms. Rafkin (who thinks her looks have changed due to a facelift) asks Sara how she knew it was her. Henry told her by her voice which she accepted as the answer. This wouldn't be a possibility since Sara said hello before Ms. Rafkin spoke.
