Continuity mistake: When Ritchie, Eddie, Spudgun and Dave Hedgehog enter the pub with the fake money and order drinks, Ritchie asks for Absinthe but is told that the pub doesn't have any and is given Pernod instead. Later, when the £5000 pub quiz poster is pointed out, Ritchie says he's had half a pint of Absinthe and can't see anything. Where did the Absinthe come from if the pub didn't have any earlier in the episode and they never left?UKFilmFan
Revealing mistake: In the parking lot shot, one patron of the Leisure Center warns an arriving patron that Brittas is back, prompting the arriving person to reverse their car out of the parking space. However, note the arriving patron's hands - his car was already in reverse before he was spoken to. (00:12:15)
Plot hole: Doug recalls previous years (in a flashback, where he was next to Skeeter at the window of the Honker Burger as they looked outside) of seeing the Hamburger Boy when Mr. Dink is confessing that he *was* Hamburger Boy. However, Doug has only been living in Bluffington for one year - this was his first summer there.redbaron2000
Factual error: Carol and Frank leave for a romantic weekend and Dana begins to tutor Rich for a test in English Literature. When Frank and Carol return on Sunday Rich has not only studied for the test but also TAKEN the test and gotten the results back. How is that possible over a weekend?
Continuity mistake: In Moving Away, Tommy tells the other Rugrats how they first met when Angelica lied about the nasty things they did. However in the Crawl Space, there is a flashback of Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil playing in the playpen when they were younger. Chuckie is scared of the Jack-in-a-box in that flashback, so the Rugrats could not have met for the first time back then.
Character mistake: It is mentioned several times that the Larkins' holiday to France takes place in August. Whilst on the beach, Ma Larkin says that Mariette and Charlie's first wedding anniversary is the following week. However, it is established in the previous two part episode, 'When the Green Woods Laugh', that their wedding date is the seventh of July, the same date that Pop has to appear in court.
Continuity mistake: After Michael's tooth falls out, the toys go to clean it. When they accidentally squeeze the toothpaste on each other, it finally shows Alfred holding up the toothbrush correctly because Diesel can't seem to, Alfred's appearance is short, dark green and smaller in size. But then Johnson appears and says "I'm going to remove this toothpaste tube before it causes anymore damage" the shot cuts to Alfred with the toothpaste squeezed on him, and his appearance has changed; with a larger head, bright green body and larger in size. A few shots later, he is back to his original form.
