New this month Plot hole: When Chrissy's father finds out Jack is living with the girls, he gets angry about the living situation. But back near the start of the series, Chrissy's mother met Jack and she was given word by Mr. Roper that Jack was gay and then she OK'd the living arrangement. It's hard to believe that a married couple would not share this information, so the father should have assumed Jack was already gay and not have any problems when meeting Jack as his daughter's roommate.
Continuity mistake: After Jack brings the puppy over to the girls, the box he brought the puppy in was placed on the back end of their couch. At one point, it is knocked over, and you can see it falling down to the floor (past Janet). In a few shots, it's back on the table, and none of the characters were in a position to pick it up to place it back there.
Continuity mistake: Larry gives Cindy and Janet gifts to thank them for letting him live with them, so Janet gives him a kiss. However, three seasons later in the episode "Friends and Lovers," Janet kisses Larry at her wedding to which Larry says "Janet, that's the first time you've ever kissed me."
Continuity mistake: This is such an obvious mistake. In the scene where Jack, Janet and Terri are on the air for the cooking show, Janet holds up the silver bowl but there is no parsley in it. Then in the next shot the bowl is full of parsley. How is it possible that it got filled up in a matter of two seconds.
Continuity mistake: While Jack is talking to the police officer about the missing rent money, they are standing in front of the TV set and the front door is open. When it cuts back to Jack and the officer, over Jack's shoulder the front door is closed, but when the officer turns to leave the door is open again.
Revealing mistake: In the episode "Out on a Limb", Jack leaves Terri in Mr. Townsend's office lobby to keep the secretary busy while Jack is supposed to climb a tree outside to the window and move from window-to-window to get to Townsend's office. If you look at the window behind Terri and the secretary, you'll see Jack magically walk through the brick wall to get set up for the tree climbing scene.
Revealing mistake: As Terri exits Jack's bedroom to stall the diamond thieves, you can momentarily see into the girls' bedroom. The wall that should be between the girls' bedroom and Jack's bedroom is missing and the floor and blue curtains of Jack's bedroom set are visible. John Ritter's arm can also be seen moving.
Continuity mistake: When Jack is introduced to Mr. Roper for the first time, the girls just say he's their landlord (no name given yet), however after Jack's talk in the kitchen with Chrissy (in which still no landlord name given), Jack storms out and starts out shouting "Look here Mr. Roper..." He still should not have known the landlord's name at this point.
Continuity mistake: The kitchen changes from episode to episode, when viewed from the living room. If the set is going to be used the full kitchen is visible when viewed. But if it is not being used, often the set is pushed closer together. This is most evident when an actor is coming out of the kitchen the stove and the attached cupboards are practically at the door, providing just a bit of space for the actor to stand before making their entrance. Other times a wall is simply pushed up beside the door with the kitchen wall paper on it to appear to have continuity. This is only seen when the shot allows the kitchen set to be obscured.
Other mistake: After Jack leaves the apartment with Mr Angelino, Janet and Terri are sitting on the couch trying to figure out a way to get money for Jack. When Janet gets up you can see the bathroom door start to open behind her but there is no one else in the apartment to open it.
Other mistake: Larry entered Jack as "Grandma Tripper" to win the contest since the contest was only open to women. However, since Larry admits he didn't know there would be a bake-off and thought a winning check would just be mailed, then there's no reason to of entered Jack as "Grandma." He easily could have just entered Janet or Terri using Jack's recipe.
Factual error: In this episode, Jack asks Felipe how he can bring Mr. Angelino to the apartment, in which he answers "We took the Santa Monica freeway to the Cloverfield exit." The Cloverfield exit is in reality, a good 2 miles or so from the beach (2 other exits are much closer to beach than this). Yet throughout the series, it is implied that the apartment is very close to the beach (3 blocks is stated by Jack in a much earlier episode). Why a far exit for a beach-area apartment?
Visible crew/equipment: In the episode "A Camping We Will Go", when Lana and Mr. Furley show up to the Cabin unexpectedly, watch closely when Lana tries to sit next to Jack on the couch.if you look through the window by the flag hanging on the wall you'll see Larry's girl, Laura, waiting outside by the front door (in her bright pink outfit) waiting to make her entrance.
Other mistake: Jack goes into the kitchen with Janet to get "Jim Bob" Furley a glass of brandy. When Jack returns from the kitchen to hand Furley his drink, Jack trips and spills the drink all over Furley, causing Furley to give the Partnership to Jack's Navy pal, Bill. Furley then excuses himself and heads to the bathroom to clean up. But Furley isn't supposed to have met Jack before, so he wouldn't know where the bathroom is. He goes right to it anyway without asking where it is. Lucky Bill didn't notice.
