A Nightmare on Dick Street (1) - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: In 1-2: "Post Nasal Dick", Harry has a dream about Martha Stewart. But in this episode they panic because they dream and have nightmares and don't know what they are. Shouldn't Harry have panicked when he dreamed about Martha Stewart?

My Mother The Alien - S2-E9

Other mistake: When Harry spits baby food on the baby (the camera lens in actuality) in retaliation for the baby spitting food on him and Tommy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt breaks character and laughs uncontrollably and looks at and gestures to off-screen crew members a couple times. (00:06:25)

Dick and the Single Girl - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When Sonja takes Dick's belt, she has it in her right hand, away from Dick. In the next few shots, Sonja no longer has the belt, but it is back around Dick's pants. Yet the next shot (at the door), it's in Dick's hand. (00:16:30)

Dick's Big Giant Headache (1) - S4-E23

Trivia: When the Solomons meet the Big Giant Head at the airport and ask how his flight was, he says that it was horrible because when he looked out the airplane window, he saw something on the wing of the plane. Dick responds that the same thing happened to him. William Shatner appeared in the 1960's Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" in which a gremlin tried to destroy the wing of a plane. John Lithgow appeared in "Twilight Zone: The Movie" playing the same character in the same situation.

Dick on a Roll - S3-E12

Trivia: Dick is never seen walking in this episode and is only in an upright position when he moves from the chair in the lounge room to the wheelchair in the opening scene. This is because John Lithgow hurt his ankle playing tennis, and the episode was written to allow him to be in a wheelchair for the entire episode.

Tricky Dick - S3-E3

Trivia: Dick's rant about his perceived evils of rock music is identical to Reverend Moore's (also played by John Lithgow) opposition to dancing from the film "Footloose."

Show generally

Question: Which season/episode does Officer Don first appear as a permanent character?

strikeand

Chosen answer: Officer Don ended up appearing in 100 of 139 episodes, but I would say season 3 episode 2 is when he become permanent. However, as he did appear throughout season 2 (first appearance S01E17), it's possible they already considered him permanent at that time.
