Soft Touch - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: During the intro to this episode Carrie is trying to park the car. However you can see from the top angle that it's actually Doug driving, not Carrie, during the last attempt when the car finally makes it into the spot. (00:01:05)

The Minister

Dougie Houser - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: In this flashback episode, when Doug is shaving his moustache and talking to Deacon by his locker at IPS, Danny Hefferman's name can be seen on a locker. At this time Danny was not working at IPS.

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. However, earlier in the series (Art House episode, S1 - E24) we learn that Arthur can play the piano when he temporarily moves out and after his house warming party Doug says to Carrie, "Who knew Arthur could play the piano like that?"

The Minister

Pilot - S1-E1

Four Play - S8-E20

Continuity mistake: When Doug and Carrie are in the living room talking about Doug not going out with Kelly again, he has the phone in his hand, gets upset and throws the phone down. Then Carrie is going to call Kelly for Doug, and when she goes to pick up the phone, it's placed perfectly back on the hook when it should be hanging near the floor from the way Doug threw it.

Animal Attraction - S5-E15

Revealing mistake: When Deacon tries the doors on the van, the wall moves, revealing it's not a van but a set. (00:08:30)

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?

The King of Queens mistake picture

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)

Show generally

Other mistake: On the exterior front shots of the house you see the front door with three vertical windows. But on the interior shots it is just one window.

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.
