All Apologies - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: During the scene with the family in the living room and Claudia and Lily are sitting on the covered couch, the sheet falls off the top of the couch. In subsequent shots the sheet falls off and goes back on the top through the whole scene.

Pay You Back with Interest - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Lily's golden sprite tattoo is underneath the name "Dean" - "Dean" is written above the sprite's head, between the tips of her wings. A few episodes ago, at the end of "Your Father Shoulder Know - Part 2", Sean hugged Lily and accidentally lifted the back of her shirt, revealing the tattoo. The name "Dean" was not there.

Pay You Back with Interest - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Eddie first gets his blue electric car. He plugs the car into the kitchen with a long red extension cord. When there's a shot of Claudia first coming out of the kitchen to see what's going on, the red cord is gone. The whole kitchen entrance is shown, so the red cord should be visible. Then, when Eddie and Shawn are shown again, the red cord is back on the floor behind them.

Ticket to Ride - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Sean and Claudia catch Lily doing homework in her room, and they realise that she is not actually drunk, Sean asks where she was "tonight." But downstairs, a few minutes ago, Sean commented on her being drunk in "the middle of the day."

Henry Finnerty: Wow, that ride must be really scary. Those two guys are holding hands.
James "Jimmy" Finnerty: That's the line for cotton candy.

Take It to the Limit - S2-E13

Question: I don't understand Lily's nervousness about impressing Dean in this episode - almost as if they have never been on a date. She already referred to him as her "boyfriend" in "Smoke on the Daughter", and they arranged a date in that episode. And he has been in her bedroom and brought her a Christmas present ("I Saw Daddy Hitting Santa Claus"). Why does this episode suddenly make it seem like they have never been on a date?

Answer: "Take It to the Limit", while aired as the 13th episode, was the 7th episode produced for the 2nd season (production code 207). "Smoke on the Daughter" was the 8th episode (208) and "I Saw Daddy Hitting Santa Clause" was the 10th episode (210) produced. Often shows air episodes out of production order for various reasons. If they had aired 210 in order, it would have aired on Jan 23rd instead of Dec 19th, hardly a good time to air a Christmas themed episode.
