The Distance - S2-E1

Factual error: In the first episode of season two you see Teresa with Ryan, yet she has no bump. Season one ends at the end of the school term and season two starts off just before the school term. Therefore there's been about two and a half months of school holiday plus the time between her sleeping with Ryan and discovering she's pregnant and Ryan leaving for Chino with her - therefore she should be showing some signs of pregnancy in early season two.

Dead Like Me picture

Vacation - S1-E13

Factual error: Towards the end of the episode, Mason reads a report on Daisy's death indicating she died 13 December 1938 in Marietta Georgia of smoke inhalation. It apparently was common knowledge that Daisy died on the set of Gone with the Wind (supported in the Halloween episode by someone who knew her when she was alive). The filming of the big fire scene in GWTW was 10 December 1938 so the dates are pretty close. But these early parts of the production of GWTW (and I believe the rest of the movie as well) were filmed in Culver City, CA, not Marietta. (00:34:50)

The Invisible Hand of Fate - S3-E3

Factual error: When Billy is in his first Underground Quiz Match, the host says at the start of the match "Jeopardy Rules apply," then starts with the first answer. Billy buzzes in with the correct question and wins it, however, Jeopardy Rules state that contestants may not buzz in before the host finishes reading. If they do, they lose their chance to buzz in first. (00:07:20)
