Ice Station Winslow - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: Carl, Eddie, and Steve are out ice fishing. At one point Carl falls through the "ice" and you can clearly see that the "ice" is made of some sort of styrofoam. It looks like the stuff used for packaging. The snow looks just as fake.

Ice Station Winslow - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Eddie and Carl are out ice fishing, you can tell the background is just a wall. If you look towards the bottom, you can see the line all the way across that would make it look like a wall of scenery.

The Crash Course - S2-E5

Other mistake: Eddie drives the car through the front door. This shouldn't be possible. Whenever the front of the house is shown, we see that the porch is several feet above the ground and the only way to get to it are steps that aren't wide enough apart for a car to drive between them.

Marriage 101 - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: Steve buys the ring for Laura at the end of their class project, then sells it to Carl as a gift for Harriet. Then when he proposes to Laura he says it's the same ring from that day.

Life of the Party - S2-E18

Deliberate mistake: When everyone is doing the Urkel Dance on the rooftop, Steve is instructing everyone on how the dance goes since they have never done it before, but there are sections of the dance where he is not telling them what to do, but it is still perfectly choreographed.

The Crash Course - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Urkel throws the baseball at the lamp, the shadow of the boom mic can be seen moving from right to left on the wall that the closet door is on, and then moves back in the opposite direction until it is pulled out of view as Carl screams "What happened!?" (00:22:22)
