DrLoomis1978

Other mistake: Ben drags the body of the ghoul he killed in the house out the kitchen door. As he drags it out you can see he leaves it on the porch and lights it on fire, which would certainly set the wooden porch on fire and probably the rest of the house. But, once the flames are huge, you will see that the body has moved down onto the grass. But Ben never pushes it down off the porch. (00:19:45)

DrLoomis1978

Other mistake: When Ben smashes the face of the ghoul trying to walk through the kitchen door, he comes back in and locks the door. But, when he drags the body of the ghoul he killed in the house out that same door and lighting it on fire, he runs back in, slams a small table against it but never re locks it. So until he boards it up, that door is left unlocked. That little table wouldn't stop anyone. (00:18:45 - 00:20:00)

The Honeymooners (1955)

Mind Your Own Business - S1-E35

Other mistake: Ralph gives Ed the advice to try to "squeeze" his boss for a promotion, but gets fired instead. When Ed comes home, he first stops in to see Ralph but he's not home, just Alice. All he tells Alice is that he had words with his boss and got fired. No details. Ed leaves and Ralph comes home. Alice tells him Ed was fired and described in detail the whole story of him threatening his boss for the promotion. Ed never told her exactly why he was fired.

TV or Not TV - S1-E1

Other mistake: At the beginning when Ed tells Ralph he can't afford to buy a new TV right now, he says it couldn't come at a worse time because Captain Video is blasting off to Pluto tomorrow. Ralph gets the idea to buy a set together. When Ed comes down and turns on Captain Video for the launch to Pluto, Ralph yells at him saying they've had this set for three nights and all they watch are Ed's shows. Captain Video should have blasted off for Pluto night one, not night three.

Halloween (1978)

Other mistake: In 2000 a Limited Edition of Halloween was released with 12 extra minutes of footage, filmed during the making of Halloween II in 1981. In order to air Halloween on TV they needed to remove and add certain scenes. In the original 1978 version, Dr. Loomis tells Sheriff Bracket, "I watched him for fifteen years, sitting in a room, staring at a wall, not seeing the wall, looking past the wall, looking at this night, inhumanly patient." In the Extended version, you'll see Dr. Loomis visit Michael in his room, and he's staring out of a window. Not a wall. (00:11:31 - 00:12:38)

Family Guy (1999)

V is for Mystery - S16-E13

Other mistake: When Stewie and Brian are riding on the train, Stewie tells Brian, "It's nice that the locals act as their own train crossings." They are seated on the left side of the train and looking out their window at this time. As the train passes, we can see the only person standing there is on the right side of the train. Neither Stewie or Brian could have seen him from the direction they were looking. (00:14:10)

King of the Hill (1997)

Dale to the Chief - S9-E5

Other mistake: At the end of the episode we see Hank at the motor vehicle office alone which means he drove himself there. Dale later comes in and helps to get Hank's license changed back to male. Afterwards Hank gets into Dale's van and puts on his seat belt implying Dale is driving him home. Hank should have gotten into his own truck.

The Twilight Zone (1959)

The Fear - S5-E35

Other mistake: As Trooper Franklin is shining his light on the side of the car showing the fingerprints, notice the front passenger's door. The key hole and the black painted rim of it is not covered by the fingerprint, or paint as it turns out to be. But regardless, it's not covered. (00:14:15)

Family Guy (1999)

The Unkindest Cut - S16-E19

Other mistake: The guys all go water skiing, towing the boat behind Peter's car. After Quagmire gets his penis bitten off the scene cuts to the hospital parking lot. Quagmire's car is parked next to Peter's. There would be no reason to go home and get his car instead of going directly to the hospital. (00:07:15)

DrLoomis1978

Other mistake: Once Dr. Trent enters the bedroom where Mrs. Loren is lying down "dead", they begin talking. Trent says "At first I couldn't get Nora to protect herself with a gun." There is no scene in the movie where he tries to convince her to use the gun, Lance is responsible for that. (01:02:25)

Just before he leaves for the meeting, Lance tells Nora, "If you have to, you use it." Nora was not at the meeting to hear what was said, so ultimately, it was Lance who got Nora to protect herself with the gun.

DrLoomis1978

There's an important mistake in your version of Dr. Trent's quote. What Trent actually says is, "At first I couldn't get Nora to want to protect herself with a gun." He's not saying that he personally advised her to protect herself; he's saying that he, through his various scary tricks, had failed to scare Nora into arming herself. Trent's immediate next lines are: "But after you appeared at the window, everything began to work just as we planned. You were wonderful, just the touch that finally drove her into complete hysteria." We know that David Trent and Annabelle Loren were behind a number of staged scares (such as the witch in the basement, the attack on Lance, Annabelle's hanging, etc) intended to push Nora toward hysteria, setting her up, of course, to kill Mr. Loren "by accident," thereby committing the perfect crime.
