Plot hole: Jean Grey decides to wear her original X-Men uniform in her trial-by-combat. But how could she possibly have had the uniform with her? She wasn't wearing it when the X-Men were suddenly and unexpectedly abducted by the Shi'ar and taken into outer space, and the Shi'ar weren't about to let Jean go back home and grab it.

Plot hole: In this episode, a very star-struck Paul meets Jerry Seinfeld on the street. It's not clear whether Jerry is playing himself or his Seinfeld character, but either way it's a mistake. If Jerry was playing himself, it's a mistake because Mad About You did a crossover episode with Seinfeld in its first season, so it would be impossible for Seinfeld (the TV show) or Jerry Seinfeld the actor to exist in the Mad About You universe. If Jerry was playing his character, it's a mistake because it was established in that crossover that Paul and Jerry used to be neighbors and knew each other fairly well, so Paul wouldn't be at all star-struck.
Plot hole: When Two-Face and his men have broken into the new D.A.'s office to find dirt on Rupert Thorne, one of his men finds a file detailing Thorne's record of Swiss bank accounts, money laundering, blackmail and payoffs that Two-Face tried for years to subpoena when he was D.A. When Thorne finds out that Two-Face has the file, he states that he will be ruined if Two-Face gives the file to the police. If Two-Face tried unsuccessfully for years to subpoena the file, then in all likelihood that means Thorne paid off the right people to prevent the subpoena from happening, so Two-Face giving the file to the police shouldn't be a problem for him. Additionally, if giving the file to the police would be all that it would take to bring Thorne down, then the new D.A. could have already done so. If the new D.A. was also paid off by Thorne, then it wouldn't make sense for Thorne to allow the D.A. to keep the file since they could easily lose the file or even double-cross Thorne.
