No Children, No Pets - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After Jack brings the puppy over to the girls, the box he brought the puppy in was placed on the back end of their couch. At one point, it is knocked over, and you can see it falling down to the floor (past Janet). In a few shots, it's back on the table, and none of the characters were in a position to pick it up to place it back there.

In Like Larry - S5-E15

However, three seasons later in the episode "Friends and Lovers," Janet kisses Larry at her wedding to which Larry says "Janet, that's the first time you've ever kissed me."

And Now Here's Jack - S6-E23

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jack, Janet and Terri are on the air for the cooking show, Janet holds up the silver bowl but there is no parsley in it. Then in the next shot the bowl is instantly full of parsley.

Handcuffed - S4-E18

Plot hole: Chrissy's policeman cousin informs the roommates that there was a complaint from a neighbor about her husband on his roof watching the girls dance in The Apartment with binoculars. However, when the girls were dancing, the front door was fully closed and the very thick drapes were fully closed so how could such a complaint exist?

Gigolo Jack or Professor Jack - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Terri admits to Jack that she mistook his cooking lessons for lovemaking lessons, look at Terri's bangs. They go from on her forehead to brushed back then back to on her forehead then back to being brushed back.

Up in the Air - S6-E25

Revealing mistake: During Jack's dance scene, the old lady that he dances with spins away from him and knocks off a man's toupee. The actress was supposed to knock it off as she went by, but it's obvious that she misses and instead quickly reaches over to snatch it off his head instead.

Handcuffed - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: When Jack is eating cake and Chrissy is under the table her the sleeve of her right arm is down. When Jack and Chrissy exit the kitchen into the living room, both of her sleeves are down.

It's Only Money - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: While Jack is talking to the police officer about the missing rent money, they are standing in front of the TV set and the front door is open. When it cuts back to Jack and the officer, over Jack's shoulder the front door is closed, but when the officer turns to leave the door is open again.

Jack Bares All (a.k.a. Oh, Nurse) (2) - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Terry puts on the gag glasses, notice how the black circles under her eyes get larger after the shot changes.

Grandma Jack - S8-E7

Good Old Reliable Janet - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Janet and Mrs. Roper are found nude behind the bushes, Larry leaves to get towels. However, the yellow towel suddenly appears briefly on screen several seconds before Larry returns.

Out on a Limb - S8-E4

Revealing mistake: In the episode "Out on a Limb", Jack leaves Terri in Mr. Townsend's office lobby to keep the secretary busy while Jack is supposed to climb a tree outside up to the window and move from window-to-window to get to Townsend's office. If you look at the window behind Terri and the secretary, you'll see Jack magically walk through the brick wall to get set up for the tree climbing scene.

A Camping We Will Go - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: In the episode "A Camping We Will Go", when Lana and Mr. Furley show up to the Cabin unexpectedly, watch closely when Lana tries to sit next to Jack on the couch.if you look through the window by the flag hanging on the wall you'll see Larry's girl, Laura, waiting outside by the front door (in her bright pink outfit) waiting to make her entrance.

Cousin Cuisine - S7-E7

Character mistake: Maria (Felipe's cousin) supposedly didn't understand any English (only single words like "yes") and would answer (in Spanish) "Que?" after a full sentence of English was spoken to her. However, in front of Jack, one of the girls said to Maria "Tell Jack the new English word you just learned" and Maria understandingly responded "No." There's no way that Maria could respond correctly to that question since she didn't understand any other English sentences throughout the episode.

Lee Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother - S4-E21

Character mistake: Jack's older brother Lee comes for a visit. In the second season when Jack's Uncle visits, both make note of Jack being his only nephew. Lee would be his other nephew.

Suggested correction: Although it's not stated in the show, theoritically speaking, it WOULD be accurate if Jack and Lee were HALF-brothers (with same father since both last names are Tripper) and Fremont was the brother of Jack's mother, then Jack COULD be his only nephew as Lee would have NO relation to Fremont.

I submitted the above correction based on a theory that would make it possible, although in reviewing one of the scenes involving Jack's Uncle, I realise this would not be the specific case. Uncle Fremont most likely is the brother of Jack's father (not mother like the theory) due to the fact when he tells Mr. Roper that Jack's father is happily married but that doesn't stop him from having "fun" with a friendly nudge. He most likely would not say that if it was against his own sister. So yes, the theory didn't apply in this specific situation. Instead, the situation here is during the Roper early seasons, the episode came out with the Uncle and a year or two later (during the Furley era) Lee was intruduced. Neither were ever mentioned in any other episode so it could be simple inconsistent screenwriting.

Borrowing Trouble - S7-E22

Other mistake: After Jack leaves The Apartment with Mr Angelino, Janet and Terri are sitting on the couch trying to figure out a way to get money for Jack. When Janet gets up you can see the bathroom door start to open behind her but there is no one else in The Apartment to open it.

The Matchbreakers - S6-E13

Other mistake: In the Regal Beagle, Jack addresses Marsha as Ms. White although later in the episode her last name is revealed to be Whitewood. In addition, how could Jack have known her last name anyway? Marsha only said her first name in front of Furley and the trio early in the episode and presumably she hasn't talked to the trio since she left with Furley out the door.

Stanley Roper: I want my rent.
Helen Roper: Stanley, where are your manners? You're supposed to say hello when you walk into a room.
Stanley Roper: Hello, I want my rent.

Show generally

Question: In the second episode Chrissy's mother comes to visit. In future episodes her father comes to visit - who is an actual "father" (i.e. priest). Aren't priests forbidden to be married?

ckbyers

Answer: He's not a Catholic priest. He's a pastor, with the title Reverend, at a community church who chooses to wear a clerical collar. Some people still address pastors as "Father" though. I'm not sure of his religious denomination, but most pastors can marry.

Bishop73

Answer: Yes Pastors can marry... I was asking for Priests since his collar appears to be that of a Catholic descent.

ckbyers

Some protestant pastors wear the clerical collar as well: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clerical_collar.
