Manny Come Home - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Simon Pegg's character shouts at Manny as he is picking up a muffin, and he slams it onto the desk, smashing it and making a large messy pile of crumbs. The shot changes, then changes back so you can see the muffin (in the same scene) and it is a perfectly formed, whole muffin with no crumbs around. Then when Fran shows up and Pegg's character leaves, the muffin is back to being a messy mound.

Manny Come Home - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Fran arrives at the store, in the shot from outside you see a pile of unopened mail on the mat just outside the door. However as Fran opens the door and walks into the shop, the pile of mail has disappeared.

The Fixer - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Manny is in the bath he wipes his hands dry before handling the toast, in the next shot his hands are covered in bubbles again.
