Run For Your Wife - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: During the episode when Clair and Phil do their warm-up before racing each other, their children Alex and Luke arrive from school. They get down from the car, and the car takes off and goes away. But in the 2nd shot we can see that same car parked in front of them. (00:17:00)

Boys' Night - S2-E18

Other mistake: In the opening scene, the Dunphys are playing ball in their backyard when Claire knocks it into their crotchety old neighbour's yard. They all head in, and as Phil explains to Luke that it's because it's their only ball, another ball is in the grass visible over Luke's shoulder.

Phil on Wire - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: In 1-20 "Benched", Phil specifically states he knows how to walk a tightrope because he went to trapeze camp. But in this episode, he learns how to walk a tightrope.

Question: In Claire and Phil's house, what is the room behind the staircase that we never see? It wasn't there in the pilot episode but thereafter, it's got a window and supposedly a good amount of space, as it's in the front of the house, in front of the kitchen. Anybody have any idea?

MovieFan612

Chosen answer: There was a plain wall at the foot of the stairs in the pilot episode. Thereafter, there is a room, but we have never been shown what's in the room.

The Cold - S6-E3

Message Received - S5-E22

Question: Exactly what was the fight with Jay and Mitch about?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Mitch is upset that his dad doesn't seem to support his getting married. When they talk about Jay's friends not coming to the wedding, Jay makes it seem like Mitch wouldn't want them to come anyways. Mitch sees it as it's actually that Jay doesn't want to invite his friends to his gay son's wedding because he's embarrassed and uncomfortable about having a gay son. Essentially Mitch sees it as if he was marrying a woman, Jay would be willing so spend money on the wedding, host it at the club, and invite all his friends to it.
