Continuity mistake: Prior to bringing Ray up for the role-playing exercise, the parenting teacher erases a circled phrase from the chalkboard. Throughout the scene, the chalked circle flips several several times between being totally erased and having a faint outline left over.
Continuity mistake: The large spoon and fork in Frank and Marie's kitchen change positions, right to left, and up and down. In some episodes the fork is on the right, and in others it is on the left. In other episodes, the fork is higher or lower than the spoon. At other times, the spoon and fork seem to be larger than at other times. It is obvious when she removes one of the utensils that they have never been moved - The Wallpaper underneath is a different shade from fading. If these were moved at subsequent times in the supposed feud, the difference in wallpaper fading would be seen.
Continuity mistake: Marie comes over with a cake shaped like a cross. In almost all the scenes where the family is sitting at the table different pieces of cake are missing. In some of the camera angles there are no pieces of cake cut from the bottom yet when the cake is seen from other angles there are.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Debra tells Ray her parents have separated and he laughs, later on in this scene he tells Debra that he got free candy from the broken vending machine at work. When Debra leaves the room, Ray starts taking more candies out his pockets and throwing them on the bed. Take notice of the position of the sweets on the bed. Now just after the close up scene of Ray scratching his head, look at the position of the sweets. Totally different. One or two are actually closer to the end of the bed, whereas in the scene before, they were more further on. (00:52:50 - 00:53:55)
Visible crew/equipment: Robert pushes Ray into accepting his offer to go on a citizen's ride-along. They are initially sitting on the couch at the time, and when they rise, if you look closely behind where Ray is standing, through one of the kitchen windows you can spot a production crew member.
Deliberate mistake: In this episode, Ray tells Amy's mother that Debra no longer reads his column, although she did when they were dating "and she was wooing me." But in an earlier episode, Ray proposed to Debra in his very first column - so when they were dating, he didn't have a column.
