The Tattle-Tale - S2-E10

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.

What Goes Up . . . - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When Peter is on the trampoline, instead of saying "Peter," Carol says, "Go get 'em, Chris!" and a few minutes later the same thing happens after Cindy has a turn alone, you can hear Greg say "Why don't you give it a try, Eve?" (00:18:10 - 00:19:50)

The Not-So-Ugly Duckling - S2-E9

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.

Lights Out - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: When Peter is on stage at his school for the talent show, Cindy gets into the disappearing lady booth and Peter closes the curtain. He says the magic words, yanks open the curtain and Cindy has disappeared. Look at the top left side of the booth and you can see where the stage curtain is piled up on top of the booth. There is just enough room for Susan Olsen to get out of the booth and then get back in.

What Goes Up . . . - S2-E11

Deliberate mistake: When Bobby's at the treehouse the second time for his initiation into the club, there's a boy already up in the treehouse, and after Peter takes the birdcage from Bobby's hand, the next closeup of the boy in the treehouse is a flipped shot, note the wood boards. (00:08:25)

Confessions, Confessions - S2-E12

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)

Alice's September Song - S2-E23

Revealing mistake: One of the times that Sam comes over to visit Mr. Brady, he comes in through the back sliding "glass" door. There is no glass in the door. You can tell this because when Sam closes the door, to do so, he puts his hand through the areas where glass would be.

The Un-Underground Movie - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: During the filming of Greg's movie, Mike is in the stockade when Peter dumps the box of "snow". When the family sits to watch the film, Mike is released from the stockade by Carol before the snow is dumped. (00:17:45 - 00:20:10)

Lights Out - S2-E20

Plot hole: When Alice brings Cindy to the auditorium to help Peter in his magic act, her cape is already there backstage. She was not going to be the assistant until Jan got hurt. (00:22:10)

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Question: Would someone please explain to me why Marcia did not just simply remove her dangly bracelet that endangered the girls standing in the house of cards competition after Carol said "Oh Marcia, Marcia, your bracelet"? It would have made it less stressful on her not to mention her team, and she wouldn't have had to restrain it with her other hand.

Answer: There were several episodes throughout the run of the show where Marcia was infatuated with a guy she went to school with. This bracelet could have been a gift from her then-boyfriend; as such, she would not want to take it off, as a sign of loyalty. A stupid thing to do, of course, but it's not a mistake for a character simply to be dumb.

Matty Blast

Answer: The dangling bracelet was used for dramatic purposes - to keep the audience on edge.
