Heaven is in Your Genes - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: While Ralph is in mid-air, en route to the airport cafe, something dips into view at the top left corner of the screen. Then when Ralph takes off from that cafe, two shots later as he's in mid-air, we can see the shadow of the helicopter filming the background stock footage, but it's been flipped so the helicopter is flying backwards, and when more background footage is shown again the helicopter shadow is flying properly.

It's All Downhill From Here - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: While Ralph is invisible in order to eavesdrop on Klein, when Klein makes a crack about Bill being little league, Ralph deliberately knocks the cup in Klein's hand so the coffee spills on his shirt, tie, vest, and jacket in the closeup, but in the next shot Klein is spotless. Additionally, Klein has a black pocket square and the cup he holds is white styrofoam, but in the closeup the pocket square is gone and he holds a white mug. (00:27:50)

Who's Woo in America - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: At the rec center, when Ralph enters the reserved racquetball court two men force him onto the floor for another polygraph. Ralph's wearing striped socks, blue shorts with white stripes, a blue half-shirt with red/white stripes that bares his midriff, but in the closeups as Ralph sits down and has the polygraph hooked up, all the stripes on his clothing have vanished and Ralph's abdomen suddenly has a significant amount of dark hair.
