J.J. Becomes a Man: Part 2 - S2-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Florida is begging James to borrow money from the loan shark, she and James stand up; Florida is on the left, James the right. At the top of Florida's head behind her you can see the microphone overhead and it moves quickly out of the frame. (00:32:00 - 00:33:00)

A Stormy Relationship - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: 1/3 through the program, Michael is given his father's tool belt by his mom and he puts the strap on his shoulder. The next shot and for a few after, the strap is gone. Then it comes back again.

Cousin Cleatus - S3-E14

Other mistake: The FBI agents call for a taxi and official transportation from the Evans apartment and gave the address of 963 North Gilbert. However, the Evans lived at 921 North Gilbert. Since the FBI was at their apartment, you would think that they would know the address or exactly where they are in a Chicago project. (00:13:03 - 00:28:29)

Willona, the Fuzz - S5-E6

Other mistake: JJ says that everybody else in the office just has to look at their watch when the boss asks them the time but he has to go outside down the block because he can't afford a watch. Throughout the whole scene, you can see a wristwatch on his right wrist. He even raises his arm where his sleeve moves to his elbow to show it. It looks like a pretty expensive watch too. (00:05:00)

Thelma: J.J where'd you get stamps to mail a letter?
JJ: I don't need no money for stamps! The last six letters I painted em on.

The Gang: Part 1 - S2-E9

Question: Neck Bone and Sweet Pea are referred to by Florida as their real names, Tyrone and Sylvester. Do we know which name goes to which guy? (I've always wondered this).

Answer: Neck Bone is Sylvester and Sweet Pea is Tyrone.

For some reason, I always thought it was the other way around but really no way of knowing. I'm assuming your answer is based on how Florida looks their directions near the end of the episode while saying their names.

They are listed as such on IMDb.com. So it is possible to check. Doug Grant played Sweet Pea and Michael D. Roberts played Neck Bone.
