It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

The Gang Broke Dee - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: When Dee is standing up she is smoking a cigarette with her right hand. When the shot comes back to her as she cuts Charlie's joke off, the cigarette has disappeared and the bottle of whiskey has left the table and is in her right hand. (00:01:15)

Dennis and Dee Get a New Dad - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Dee tells the gang someone is contacting her claiming to be their dad, only one coffee cup is next to Dee, on the side closest to Mac. She lifts that cup and puts it towards her lap, but when the camera shows the computer, the cup is back and another cup is on the other side of the computer. When the camera zooms out both cups are gone again. (00:00:30)

The Gang Runs for Office - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Mac is sitting in the back of the cop car and the black cop is talking about how people don't take kindly to being called a nerd, there is a red car driving up behind them. When the camera pans out it has become a white SUV. (00:21:40)

Bums: Making a Mess All Over the City - S3-E14

Factual error: Charlie drops the moltov cocktail into the police car in the end, light enough so that it doesn't break, but the car explodes about ten seconds later, as Charlie explains he had soaked the entire inside with gasoline. However, there realistically wouldn't be such a long pause as shown in the show for the gasoline fumes to ignite. Also, the explosion is much more powerful than it realistically would have been, revealing pyrotechnics were used. Obviously done for comedic value, but still a mistake.

The Gang Gets Invincible - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Mac and Dennis are talking to Doyle on the bus, watch the background outside of the window. Every time the camera cuts back and forth, the background changes. The most noticeable change is near the end of the scene, when the background changes from trees and shops passing, to suddenly the side of a bridge passing.

Hundred Dollar Baby - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, as the gang is being mugged, watch the background. Towards the end of the scene, there are suddenly three cars parked on the street behind the gangs after a brief cut to the mugger, despite there having been no time for them to all appear.

Hundred Dollar Baby - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When we see Mac and Dennis smash the boards successively over Charlie's back, as the camera cuts to a closeup of Charlie, Dennis suddenly appears behind him, despite the fact he already smashed his board and walked off-camera.

Bums: Making a Mess All Over the City - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, when Charlie leaves the envelope marked "4 the Mare" outside the Municipal Building, as he walks away we see a janitor come by and throw the envelope away. However, seconds later when Charlie jumps into the air, we see the janitor walk and bend to pick up the envelope again.

The Gang Solves Global Warming - S14-E10

Factual error: When Charlie and Dee go to get ice, they go to a "liquor" store, down the road. In Pennsylvania, all liquor stores are state run, called "Fine Wine and Spirits", and only sell liquor and wine. In this scene, ads for liquor, beer, and wine are all on the outside of the business. Liquor stores in PA do not sell beer.

Gun Fever Too: Still Hot - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: When Mac and Charlie are outside the school taking kids' cell phones, the principal comes out. We see Charlie holding 3 phones and his gun. When Mac holds up his sword saying he's going to take the principal out, Charlie points his gun at Mac and is no longer holding any phones and the principal has them. Then Charlie is seen holding 1 phone and handing it to the principal, who is holding 2 of them.

Mac and Charlie: White Trash - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When trying to get into the club pool, Mac takes two beers from the 6-pack that are from the same side, so that the remaining beers are in a 3 x 1 configuration. Later, you see on the table and when they're walking away, the missing beers came from the front so the remaining beers are in a 2 x 2 configuration.

The Gang Broke Dee - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: The way Dennis holds the 3 pictures of men changes. When he's showing them, he holds them next to his chest with one hand. Then when Dee's talking about them, he's holding them out with both hands.

Frank Reynolds: I'm the Trash Man! I come out, I throw trash all over the - all over the ring! And then I start eatin' garbage! And then I pick up the trash can, and I bash the guy on the head.

Trivia: In the show, there's a running gag of Charlie being obsessed with the waitress and her constantly rejecting him. In real life Charlie (Charlie Day) and the waitress (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) are married. They married in 2006, although they were dating before the show started.
