Navy Blues - S7-E21

Corrected entry: Jack goes into the kitchen with Janet to get "Jim Bob" Furley a glass of brandy. When Jack returns from the kitchen to hand Furley his drink, Jack trips and spills the drink all over Furley, causing Furley to give the Partnership to Jack's Navy pal, Bill. Furley then excuses himself and heads to the bathroom to clean up. But Furley isn't supposed to have met Jack before, so he wouldn't know where the bathroom is. He goes right to it anyway without asking where it is. Lucky Bill didn't notice.

Correction: As you state, Bill didn't notice, so it was just a bad decision by a character, not a mistake. But it's also possible Bill did notice and figured "Jim Bob" guessed correctly or knows it's not that hard to guess which door is the bathroom in a small apartment.

No Children, No Pets - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Janet mentions that Roper's rule of living in the building is no pets or babies allowed. Pets is one thing which is common in many apartments, but it would be unlawful to not allow babies in an apartment building.

Correction: While it would be illegal, landlords sometimes do illegal things, such as discriminate. It would also be illegal for him to deny renting to a straight man living with two women. But, Mr. Roper has been renting a long time and it wasn't until the Fair Housing Act of 1968 that made it illegal to deny renting to people with children (so less than a decade ago when the show was made). Not only may Mr. Roper be unaware of the law, but potential tenants may also be unaware of the new laws and just accept his terms. It would only be a mistake if a court ruled that Mr. Roper was acting legally.

Night of the Ropers - S5-E18

Corrected entry: Jack tells Mr. Roper (while at the Regal Beagle) that the women in the Beagle are "fantastic." Roper gives Jack a strange look (about his acting straight instead of gay, which he always thought Jack was). Jack then corrects his sentence (using gay personality and gestures). Roper is no longer the landlord of Jack's building so Jack didn't need to correct himself in front of him or care if Roper still thought he was gay.

Correction: Just because Roper isn't the landlord any more, he would still keep up the lie, even if he thought he wouldn't get in trouble. Jack simply felt it was easier to keep pretending to be gay to avoid telling the truth (in fact several of the antics in the show would have been avoid if Jack just told the truth after some mix up or confusion, but it was his nature to keep up the lies). Even so, Jack may still feel he could get in trouble somehow if he told the truth.

Stanley's Hotline - S3-E15

Corrected entry: Mr Roper can hear the roommates' bathroom through the sink and the pipes, indicating that they are right on top of each other. However based on how the apartments are set out in the building and the locations of each bathroom in their respective apartments, it would be impossible for him to hear the bathroom so, if at all.

Correction: If you're familiar with the show, the Ropers' front door and the roommates' front door upstairs are both on same side of the building separated by one flight of stairs. The inside of each apartment we see (as viewers) are from opposite sides. So when we see the Ropers' bathroom all the way right, we also see the roommates' bathroom all the way left. So in theory more or less, they ARE approximately on top of each other.

Chrissy, Come Home - S2-E23

Corrected entry: When Chrissy's father finds out Jack is living with the girls, he gets angry about the living situation. But back near the start of the series, Chrissy's mother met Jack and she was given word by Mr. Roper that Jack was gay and then she OK'd the living arrangement. It's hard to believe that a married couple would not share this information, so the father should have assumed Jack was already gay and not have any problems when meeting Jack as his daughter's roommate.

Correction: Chrissy admits to Janet in the episode that her mom never told her dad that Jack was living there or they had a male roommate.

Two Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - S6-E7

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jack and Janet are sitting on the sofa with the doctor, Janet offers the doctor some nuts from a bowl. Then take a look at Janet's face. She begins to laugh so she lowers her head and the camera immediately shoots over to Jack who realizes the goof and adlibs something to give Janet time to get into character again.

Correction: On the DVD set of this episode (which I doubt is different than what aired, but I could be wrong), after Janet offers the "nuts", she hangs her head in shame. The camera does not shoot over to Jack, instead Janet goes into some dialogue about how she shouldn't have said said a thing and instead asks if he'd like cheese. During this time, Jack says nothing to either of them until he tells Janet "Good job!" for getting out of the situation, and tells Janet to not offer any more nuts and to not offer crackers.

In Like Larry - S5-E15

Corrected entry: In the scene where Janet is about to leave and Cindy says she misses Jack, it cuts back to Janet - you can see the head of a crew member walking through Jack's bedroom right before it cuts to the next scene.

00:19:00

Correction: Larry is in Jack's room, and subsequently, it could very well be his head we see behind Janet because in the next shot, it's Larry coming out of the bedroom asking if Janet has a screwdriver. It actually looks as if they streamed the two cuts very well, the head behind Janet could very well be explained as the first steps of Larry coming out of Jack's bedroom.

Ralph's Rival - S4-E12

Corrected entry: When Jack is complaining about Mr. Furley's shoddy plumbing, he demonstrates the sink functions to Janet and Chrissy by turning on and off the water faucets. However, after he turns off the faucets, he demonstrates the dish rinser, which works despite the fact that he never turned either of the faucets back on.

Correction: The plumbing was not working properly. This is pretty much what shoddy means.

Jack Bares All (a.k.a. Oh, Nurse) (2) - S6-E2

Corrected entry: In the party scene, Jack and Larry give Terri glasses to put on that give her black circles under her eyes. Jack calls Terri Tammy when asking if she's been getting enough sleep.

Correction: Jack is supposed to call her Tammy because he is trying to get rid of her.

A Hundred Dollars a What? - S5-E3

Corrected entry: Chrissy walks out of the kitchen carrying a fresh pot of HOT coffee with her hand flat on the bottom of the glass pot. She may be dumb, but she's not invulnerable to pain.

Ral0618

Correction: Chrissy is actually holding the coffee pot with a pot holder.

Mistakes

After Jack brings the puppy over to the girls, the box he brought the puppy in was placed on the back end of their couch. At one point, it is knocked over, and you can see it falling down to the floor (past Janet). In a few shots, it's back on the table, and none of the characters were in a position to pick it up to place it back there.

Trivia

In the episode where Janet asks Jack if she's a bad kisser, take a look at Janet when he kisses her. Jack unexpectedly slip Janet his tongue (which surprises the audience as well) and that throws Janet off and shocks her. Her surprised face is not acting, and was really surprised he did that. You'll also notice that when they part, she can't keep a straight face.
