Family Guy

First Blood - S20-E19

Other mistake: The guys lasso the bear. Then Peter impossibly lassos the bear's legs. There's no way for the lasso to go around the bear's leg with his feet on the ground. And the lasso couldn't have gone over the body down to the legs since the other ropes would have gotten in the way.

I Take Thee Quagmire - S4-E21

Other mistake: When Stewie sneaks into his parents' room and attaches the breastfeeding pump to Lois, he places the cups too high on her chest for them to be on her nipples. You can see this, especially after he removes the cups.

Brian the Bachelor - S4-E7

Other mistake: In season 4 episode 7, 'Brian the Bachelor'. Cleveland is sitting in a chair in a waiting room and is getting really nervous. Peter tries to help him by tying him to a chair and when that doesn't work, he takes off all of their clothes. Peter ties Cleveland's hands to the arms of the chair and then takes Cleveland's clothes off. He couldn't have taken the shirt off while Cleveland's hands were tied to something without untying him or ripping the shirt, which he didn't do.

Blind Ambition - S4-E3

Other mistake: Right at the start when you get an aerial shot of the bowling alley, there is one that gets a strike. The machine sweeps them away, but the pins still remain. (00:00:05)

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Stewie demands his device, he says, "Like a box of active grenades," and she gives it back. The pins weren't pulled, yet he runs and it explodes. (00:18:00)

Let's Go to the Hop - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Peter is dancing to his musical number on top of the table, his head continually shrinks until the end of the shot, where his head is around a third of what it was originally.

One If By Clam, Two If By Sea - S3-E4

Other mistake: After the hurricane passes, Peter acts like he's been impaled by a wooden plank. He pulls it out as if it was attached to his right side. However, the way the metal on the clasp was bent, the only way the wooden plank could've been positioned that way is if the metal was over his shoulder.

Meet The Quagmires - S5-E18

Other mistake: Peter goes back in time and sees Lois at age 18. Death says everyone will see Peter as being 18 too. Problem: Lois and Peter aren't the same age. In later episodes, Lois reveals she's 2 years older than Peter so Peter should be 16 when he meets Lois.

The King Is Dead - S2-E7

Other mistake: In the scene where Einstein is stealing Smith's theory, when Einstein pulls the metal bars down, they should land on Smith's head, but Smith inexplicably moves forward and the bars land on his back.

Baby Not On Board - S7-E4

Plot hole: Stewie gets out of the car seat and goes back to bed, leaving the blanket at the bottom of the seat. When they get to New York, Lois goes to get him out and realises he's gone. But when they started the trip the blanket was covering the entire seat to make it look like Stewie was still in it. So who ever "covered" him up knew he wasn't in the seat before they set off. (00:13:45)

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.
