Mr. Monk Meets His Dad - S5-E9

Plot hole: Monk's dad, Jack, drives an 18 wheeler. In the scene where Jack pulls over to the side of the mountain road so they can discuss specifics about the GPS, a brake line is shown breaking and spurting what I assume is meant to be brake fluid. The rig then rolls down the mountain. However, 18 wheelers don't have brake fluid since they don't have hydraulic brakes, they have air brakes. Even if the rig lost its brakes due to loss of air pressure, the brakes are spring loaded to lock up all the wheels in this case and prevent movement. That's how you set the parking brakes, by releasing the air pressure. In other words, if he has air, he can use his application brakes; if he's lost air, he has his parking brakes set. Rigs that lose their brakes going down steep grades do so due to extreme overheating, causing brake fade, an inability of the brake shoes to grab the brake drums. This wouldn't have happened while they were parked.

Show generally

Plot hole: In the very last episode of the show, "George Decides To Sta-Local Where It's Familiar", Angie mentions that they conceived their "kids" there, referring to both Carmen and Max. However, the season four episode "George Takes a Stroll Down Memory Pain" showed flashbacks where Angie and George were living with Benny, and Angie was far along in her pregnancy with Carmen. Only Max could have been conceived in the house that they are currently living in.I want to add that in the episode 'Valentine Massacre', George says"What about the first time we made love. What were the odds in Vegas!?!"

Enter: Naruto Uzumaki! - S1-E1

Plot hole: In "Enter: Naruto Uzumaki!" Mizuki asked Naruto to get the scroll of sealing that the First Hokage wrote. If it was such an important scroll to the village, shouldn't it have been more protected? Also, if Naruto was able to take it with ease, couldn't Mizuki have easily gotten it himself?
