And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Other mistake: As Joe is driving up to the house, just before coming to a complete stop, you can see that his window is completely closed. After stopping, Peter says "Joe?" Joe says "Peter?" Joe's window is now fully open. Trouble is, Joe seems to be completely surprised by Peter standing there which implies he never saw Peter even after stopping. His window has mysteriously opened immediately. (00:04:05)

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.

Continuity mistake: When James returns to the lounge to find everyone there, they all accuse him of killing Stephanie, so they walk over to the dining room with James at the front followed by Tom and Priscilla behind him and Joe and Doctor Hartman behind them. But when they enter the dining room, Tom and Priscilla are no where to be seen and it is now Joe who is behind him. Also in that same scene, several other characters change position. The people who are in the room are Peter, Chris, Brian, Quagmire, Joe, Bonnie, Diane, Doctor Hartman and Seamus and the rest of the guests aren't seen. So when they enter, Diane and Chris are at the back followed by Seamus, Quagmire and Bonnie in front of them, followed by Doctor Hartman, Peter and Joe at the front. There is then a shot of the chair completely empty. Yet in the next shot, Brian has suddenly appeared next to Joe out of nowhere. Then in the following shot, Diane is still at the back but now more closer to Bonnie and both Bonnie and Quagmire have changed positions and Seamus is now at the back and Chris is suddenly next to Quagmire at the edge of the right hand side of the screen and Peter is now behind Joe. Then the shot cuts to James and the shot cuts back to guests. But now Peter has appeared next to Doctor Hartman again and now in front of Joe and not behind him. Also Diane is now no longer at the back but in the middle towards the left of screen and no where Bonnie and Seamus is now partially in front Bonnie. Then when the shot cuts to James saying he is a member of MENSA and a huge hit with the ladies, there is no sign of Brian standing next to Joe. Then in the shot before the lights go out, Diane is now at least ten inches behind Bonnie and Lois has appeared behind Seamus out of nowhere. Then by the time the lights go back on again, Lois is now in front of Joe and all the other guests have appeared in the dining room. Then when Seamus says "Look", there's no one in front of him even though loads of other people were there in front of him before the lights went out. Then the shot zooms out and we can see in the shot are Doctor Hartman, Priscilla, Joe, Brian, Carl, Mort and Tom. Then when Joe says "Nobody touch the knife", it's now Seamus, Bonnie, Quagmire, Lois and Derek in the shot. Then when we see Peter and Chris in the shot, the shot zooms were Joe appears we can see Quagmire, Lois and Bonnie behind Peter even though they were way in front of them a couple of seconds ago. No way could they have all moved that fast, not with all the other people in the way. (00:13:40)

Continuity mistake: When Mayor West panics, Peter shakes him and he falls against a shelf. The plate on the end of the shelf falls off and smashes on the floor. But when Brian points out the gun is there, it is now the middle plate that fell off and the plate on the end of the shelf is intact. (00:15:25)

Continuity mistake: When Joe concludes that Stephanie was in the wrong place at the wrong time, the dining room table is still set with plates, wine glasses, etc, but then Joe tells everyone to look around for more clues, and in the next overhead shot as they all exit the dining room the table is bare.

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)

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: 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: When they notice Muriel has disappeared, everyone runs back up the secret passage. As they run out the room, the order of the guests are: Peter, Diane, Chris, Lois, Carl, Doctor Hartman, Meg, Jillian, Brian, Quagmire, Mort, Derek, Seamus and Mayor West is way at the back. Yet as they run through the passage the order is: Peter, Lois, Tom, Quagmire, Diane, Chris, etc. But as they come out of the passage, the order is: Peter, Lois, Tom, Diane, Chris, Bonnie, Meg, Quagmire, Carl, Mayor West, Doctor Hartman, Mort, Seamus and Jillian is way at the back and not Mayor West since he was last seen exiting the secret room. Also Derek nor Consuela were seen in the room just as they ran out, yet when they magically appear when they are doing the groups. (00:21:50)

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: 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)

Casual Person

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

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)

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.

Trivia: A Quahog is another name for a clam, thus all the jokes and places in town (like the drunken clam bar) the show makes reference about.

Business Guy - S8-E9

Question: In the episode, Peter threatens to fire Lois, and she responds with "you wouldn't" and Peter then replies with "Oh really, does the name Lacey Chabert mean anything to you?" which in turn makes Lois go wide eyed and reply with "OK, I'll behave" and Peter then goes on to add "Yes you will" Can anyone explain this joke if it is a joke to comprehend?

Answer: Lacey Chabert was the actress who originally voiced Meg in early episodes. She left of her own accord due to being in school and other acting work; Seth MacFarlane has stated there was no tension with her leaving, but it makes for a handy joke for the show.
