(5 votes)

Brain over Brawn - S3-E2

Other mistake: In this episode, they have a leak in the roof. Yet, the house is a two story house with an attic. So it should not be able to leak into the living room. Also, when Carl and Eddie go up to fix the roof, Eddie falls through the roof and ends up on the living room couch. Again, two story house with attic. Should not happen.

Food, Lies and Videotape - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning, Carl enters with a new video camera and we see a regular view of the scene mixed with POV shots from the camera as Carl narrates. When he's standing at the door with his bag, in the POV shots from the camera you can see that the door is open, but in the wide shots, it is closed.

Brown Bombshell - S3-E16

Character mistake: When Estelle gives her guest speech about the Tuskegee airmen she shows a slideshow. There is a photo of an airplane that she incorrectly labels as "a single engine P-47." This is not correct. The plane in the photo is a P-39 Airacobra. (00:19:45)

Carl: Go home! Go home! Go home!
Steve: I don't have to take this. I'm going home.

More quotes from Family Matters

Trivia: When this show first went into syndication, a market in New England declined to pick it up, thinking it wouldn't be popular with their demographics. They ended up providing the show for free with the agreement that the market would end up paying for the broadcasting rights if the show reached a certain ratings threshold.

Show generally

Question: In the mistakes section it mentions that Richie's mother, Rachel, and the Winslow's younger daughter, Judy, disappeared without a trace. Was there ever any explanation?

Answer: It is said that as Steve Urkel became a more popular character on the show, Judy became less important to the storylines, plus either her or her parents were demanding more money, causing her to be removed from the show entirely.

Answer: No. Call it "Chuck Cunningham Syndrome". A character is written off the show without any explanation at all.
