Continuity mistake: Just after the guests have found Muriel, there is a shot from outside the manor where we can see Quagmire's car at the back of the rest of the cars. But in the next overview shot of the manor, Quagmire's car is now in front of a red car. (00:29:30)

Continuity mistake: While everyone is in the secret room Peter finds a blue book on the desk and picks it up to read. Peter's holding this book in his hands when he asks Consuela what happened, and just as Consuela tells him about her nephew, we see another blue book on the desk beside Peter. There should be only one blue book - the one in Peter's hands. (00:20:40)

Continuity mistake: The interior layout of the dining room is visible in many shots, specifically the wall and windows behind the arm chair at the head of the table. After Stephanie is murdered, when Mort shouts to run for their lives, the crowd exits the dining room and they turn right, then everyone runs for the double front doors, opposite the staircase. This means the windows behind the arm chair at the head of the table are at the back of the house, but later when they capture Tom behind that chair, the shot moves backwards through the window and it's now at the front of the house, beside the double front doors. (00:10:50 - 00:37:30)

Continuity mistake: When Muriel disappears after she's been accused, everybody rushes back up the secret passageway stairs to find her, and in the first shot facing the group there's a large green desk pad on the desk, but in the next shot that desk pad has vanished (and it reappears when they split into groups).

Continuity mistake: When Lois and Peter pack their suitcases and leave the room, as Lois walks down the hall she stops at Diane's open door. In this first shot from the hall there are double doors and a blank wall opposite Diane's open door, but in the next shot from inside Diane's room there's a painting hanging on the wall opposite her door.

Continuity mistake: In numerous shots we see the interior layout of the dining room, with the four sets of two story windows behind the arm chair at the head of the table. After Tom is accused of being the murderer, when he's captured in the dining room they're all behind the arm chair as they crack a joke about Adrien Brody. The problem occurs as the shot pulls backwards through the window, which is an average bay window instead of the four sets of two story windows. (00:37:35)

Continuity mistake: When the guests walk through the secret passage, the order of the guests change between shots. First, it's Peter, then Chris, then Carl, then Doctor Hartman, then Seamus, then Quagmire, then Lois. But in the shot of the passage, the order is Peter, then Chris, then Carl, then Lois, then Consuela, then Doctor Hartman. Then when they reach the secret room, the order is Peter, then Chris, then Carl, then Lois, then Bonnie, then Quagmire, then Derek, then Jillian. (00:20:00)

Continuity mistake: Peter knocks out Joe during the search in the hallway. Yet when everyone is fighting about the motives, there is a wide shot of the fight but Joe can be seen fighting behind a couch with Doctor Hartman and Derek. He can't have regained consciousness, because he doesn't regain consciousness until later in the episode. (00:19:20)

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22

Peter Griffin: You better watch who you're calling a child Lois. Because if I'm a child then you know what that makes you? A paedophile, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand here and be lectured by a pervert.

Brian Sings & Swings - S4-E19

Question: In this episode Meg pretends to be a lesbian, when she calls herself a 'mega lesbian' it shows four other 'mega lesbians' singing something on deep voices. What song are they singing? Is it a real song?

Chosen answer: It's a real song called "Elvira". Originally by Dallas Fraizer in '66, however, this version seems to be the Oak Ridge Boys cover version. However, the mega lesbians skip the verse and just sing the chorus after the opening line.
