Scenes from a Barbecue - S3-E24

Plot hole: All the kids and Arnie are about to play a basketball game. Darlene and Chuck Jr. battle in Rock, Paper, Scissors to see who picks first. They both throw scissors, and then Chuck Jr. says he gets to pick first. They should have done it over, since that would be considered 'a tie', he really didn't win. (00:12:10)

The Pied Piper of Lanford - S3-E25

Continuity mistake: In Ziggy's first appearance in the series (S2, EP. 16 "Born to Be Wild"), he says he has two kids. He states "I had to make mine I checked them at birth, they're boys!" However in his second appearance in the series here, he states they were his girlfriend, Jill's, kids and the kids are back living with their father.

Trivia: Shelley Winters plays Estelle Parsons' mother in the series, even though in real life she's only seven years older than Parsons.

Show generally

Question: In the episode where Jackie goes to Roseanne's house and complains that she is overdue, she says something along the lines of she will be 80 years old with a 35 year old kid inside her. Well she lifts up her shirt and that pregnant belly looks real. Here's the question, was Jackie pregnant in real life?

Answer: Yes she was. When Laurie Metcalf, who played Jackie, became pregnant during the series, her pregnancy was written into the storyline; her pregnant belly is real. At the end of the episode where Jackie gives birth, there is a photo of Laurie Metcalf in the hospital just after she had her baby.
