He's Too Sexy for His Fat - S2-E17

Revealing mistake: During the scene when the people at the pool think Chris is a car sitting on the diving board, just before Lois moves out of the shot before the scene changes, her lips disappear for a split second. It's really fast but still easy to notice even without pausing or slow motion.

Secrets - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: It is strange that the news coverage at the beginning of this episode is able to cover the story from all angles in such rapid succession: from the helicopter straight to the ground, then even a close-up of the goon atop the crystal mount Diamondhead traps him on.
