Continuity mistake: When Alan is talking to Cory in his room, telling him that he can always come home, he is pointing his finger at him. He has his right arm rested on his legs and is pointing with the left arm. Just before the shot changes to face Cory, Alan stops pointing. In the next shot, facing Cory, Alan has his left arm resting, and is pointing with his right arm.
Plot hole: After Shawn leaves Cory's house to get a pizza, he calls Cory on the phone literally a minute later to tell him that Lenny Dykstra is at the pizza place. There's no way Shawn could have left Cory's house, walked to the pizza place, spotted Dykstra and either asked to use the restaurant's phone or found a pay phone to call Cory in such a short amount of time.
