Two Thirty - S4-E24

Plot hole: In this episode Arthur scams Deacon and several other parents for phony piano lessons because he doesn't actually know how to play the piano.

Restaurant Row - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Arthur is on the phone with PBS to complain about getting a "Civil War Series" box set, the actual set of tapes changes drastically. When it's on the table and when Carrie brings it over to the counter its a pretty large, has an American flag motif, and says "Civil War" across the top. When it cuts back to it sitting on the counter its a much smaller box with a plain design and says "The Great War" along the bottom. It's obviously a different set, not just the camera angle. (00:14:40)

Pilot - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When the guys are watching the game in Doug's bedroom, we see a shot of the TV. If you look closely you can see in the reflection that no-one is on the bed. (00:13:00)

Frozen Pop - S2-E15

Show generally

Other mistake: In outside shots the front door is on the extreme right. Shots from inside the house show the living room on the left and the door in a central position.

Missing Links - S4-E17

Character mistake: When Carrie finds Tina, she mentions the "stuff" that Tina listens to at work, and Tina tells her that it's salsa. We know from previous episodes that Carrie likes salsa dancing, so shouldn't she know salsa music?

Fatty McButterpants - S3-E3

Carrie Heffernan: Ok, Maybe you're a little...big.
Arthur Spooner: Why is this even a discussion? The man's gargantuan.
