Grandma Jack - S8-E7

Visible crew/equipment: Notice the scene when Terry comes out of the kitchen. As the kitchen door begins swinging shut, a mysterious hand (which belongs to a crew member) suddenly appears from offstage to keep the door closed. (00:07:10)

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.

Forget Me Not - S8-E18

Revealing mistake: At the end where Janet and Jack are in the bathroom (off camera, as he is confessing why he took the car), - you can plainly see that the door to the bathroom is a breakaway door compared to the other episodes, - and even in that particular episode. It's changed in the middle of the episode.

Jack Takes Off - S8-E17

Continuity mistake: When the painting of Jack is hanging in the Regal Beagle, the painting is just legs, and not Jack's whole body. In some shots the top of the painting can be seen.

The Money Machine - S8-E3

Visible crew/equipment: Near the start of the show, money comes out of the ATM by error. You can see the money waiting in the slot and the crewmember's hand pushing the money out sporadically. It also comes out sideways sometimes, sometimes not and out of different parts of the slot.

Grandma Jack - S8-E7

Other mistake: Larry entered Jack as "Grandma Tripper" to win the contest since the contest was only open to women. However, since Larry admits he didn't know there would be a bake-off and thought a winning check would just be mailed, then there's no reason to of entered Jack as "Grandma." He easily could have just entered Janet or Terri using Jack's recipe.

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.

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