Continuity mistake: When Mike walks into the kitchen asking Alice if he can give her a hand, Alice removes two pots from the stovetop leaving the left side clear, but in the shots from the dining room when Alice trips, there are two large pots on the left side of the stovetop, near the edge of the counter.

Continuity mistake: When Cindy goes downstairs to ask "isn't anyone coming up to say goodnight?" or something similar, when Alice is talking to Mike and Carol about Sam not coming over, Cindy is wearing her pyjamas. She then gets in trouble and goes straight back up to her room and she is suddenly dressed in jeans and a top - her hair has different hair ties in it too.
Continuity mistake: When Jan, Marcia, and Cindy search the boys' room Cindy finds the slide projector under Greg's bed, and when Marcia holds up the transparency slide with the "ghost" image, the close-up of the slide presents two problems. First, the "ghost" is horizontal in the wide shots, but is vertical in the close-ups, and second, the fingers holding the slide in the close-up do not belong to Marcia.
Continuity mistake: In "Our Son, the Man", Greg wants his own room. One night, while in bed, Mike and Carol discuss their options. Carol says, "How about the attic?" Mike responds with, "That would be fine if Greg were only two and a half feet tall." Later, they give Greg the den for a while. However, in "A Room at the Top", after cleaning out the attic, which was now full size, both Greg and Marcia want it for their own private room.
Continuity mistake: When Jan comes home and tells her parents that Clark didn't notice her at school, she's wearing a white blouse with a floral design and a red ribbon in her hair, but when she gets to her bedroom and accuses Marcia, she's wearing a striped blouse and a light green hair ribbon. Then when Jan talks to Greg she's wearing a green tee shirt and a dark green ribbon, but when she asks permission to go to the store she's back in the striped blouse and light green ribbon.
Continuity mistake: When the kids are building the card castle to see who would get to choose what they get with the stamps, Jan is putting a card on, in one shot her hair is up in a ponytail then in the other shot her hair is down. This happens back and forth when the shots change.
Continuity mistake: When Marcia takes her last turn placing a card at the top of the tall house of cards, in the shots facing her she's stressed about accidentally collapsing the cards so she holds back her charm bracelet with her left hand, but in the first shot facing the three boys Marcia's left arm is down at her side and the charm bracelet is dangling at her wrist, right beside the cards.

Continuity mistake: Mr. Brady places the bust on the half-wall behind the couch. When Alice swings her purse at it, it shatters immediately, but when the lights are turned on, it looks like all of the pieces are in the middle of the floor between the couch and chair.
Continuity mistake: When the vase gets broken, it's easy to see that one large piece flies off the chest of drawers onto the floor. And when the boys look down at the broken vase from upstairs, three pieces are on top of the chest of drawers. But Greg - seen later trying to fix it - says something to the effect of "Good thing it only broke into three pieces." So what about the piece that flew off onto the floor? (00:02:00)
