Continuity mistake: While Kim is talking to Jimmy he is pulling of the tape off the wall. As she sits down to the couch, Jimmy's hands are at the same height as his head.

Off Brand - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: The newspaper Hector is reading when Domingo comes in keeps changing around. For example, when you see him reading the sports page, there's half a picture of a baseball player on the front and the bottom half should be seen on the side Hector is reading. When we see what he's reading, part of the picture is now a football player.

Gloves Off - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Tuco is confronting Mike out in the parking lot. When Mike offers to exchange information he's standing slightly to the left of Tuco as he faces him, with his head turned to Mike's left looking at him. But each time the camera cuts to a side view of them both, Tuco is closer to standing right in front of Mike, with Mike's head turned slightly to his right.

Fifi - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene at the Air Force base, when Jimmy is about to snap the photo of the military members with "Fudge", the film students roll Fudge in this wheelchair over to pose by Fifi, the B-29. At this moment, they've just scrambled to get Fudge back in the chair with the movie camera on his lap, concealed by the plaid blanket. The blanket is in view as the boys roll Fudge over there. We then cut to Jimmy, crouching with a disposable camera given to him by the USAF captain. Cut back to the group posing, Jimmy says, "Smile!" and Fudge says, "Cheese!" In this brief moment, the blanket on Fudge's lap is suddenly gone, along with the camera. You can see Fudge seated in his costume, holding up his bottle of water, but no blanket, no camera. Cut back to Jimmy, shaking his head. Then cut back to the group posing, and the blanket is back in place on Fudge's lap. (00:30:45)
