Continuity mistake: Prior to bringing Ray up for the role-playing exercise, the parenting teacher erases a circled phrase from the chalkboard. Throughout the scene, the chalked circle flips several several times between being totally erased and having a faint outline left over.
Continuity mistake: The large spoon and fork in Frank and Marie's kitchen change positions, right to left, and up and down. In some episodes the fork is on the right, and in others it is on the left. In other episodes, the fork is higher or lower than the spoon. At other times, the spoon and fork seem to be larger than at other times. It is obvious when she removes one of the utensils that they have never been moved - the wallpaper underneath is a different shade from fading. If these were moved at subsequent times in the supposed feud, the difference in wallpaper fading would be seen.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Debra tells Ray her parents have separated and he laughs, later on in this scene he tells Debra that he got free candy from the broken vending machine at work. When Debra leaves the room, Ray starts taking more candies out his pockets and throwing them on the bed. Take notice of the position of the sweets on the bed. Now just after the close up scene of Ray scratching his head, look at the position of the sweets. Totally different. One or two are actually closer to the end of the bed, whereas in the scene before, they were more further on.
Continuity mistake: Marie comes over with a cake shaped like a cross. In almost all the scenes where the family is sitting at the table different pieces of cake are missing. In some of the camera angles there are no pieces of cake cut from the bottom yet when the cake is seen from other angles there are.
Continuity mistake: Ray offers to rub Debra's feet instead of doing another chore. He takes her black socks off and throws them on the floor, under the table. The socks can be seen for a few shots, in the same spot, after Robert comes in. At one point, however, one of Debra's black socks can be seen on the couch in the middle, and in the next shot, the sock has been removed.
Continuity mistake: After their engagement in 2-25 "The Wedding", Debra introduces Ray to her priest Fr Hubley but in this flashback episode "The First Time" Marie brings Fr Hubley to Debra's apartment to meet her. The priest mentions that "he's known the Barones for quite some time."
Continuity mistake: In the last scene where everybody is in Ray's living room, the strap on Georgia Engel's purse keeps changing positions from hanging from her left shoulder to across her chest. Finally, when both her hands are occupied trying to light a match, her purse slips from her shoulder to her bent elbow. In the next shot, her hands are still not free, but the purse strap is on her shoulder again.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the ceremony, Kevin is seen between Robert and Bernie and is all spiffy but when Debra is walking up the aisle with Warren, you see Kevin looking normal with a tux behind Lois and, then, a moment later, he is all spiffy again between Robert and Bernie.
Continuity mistake: During his discipline fiasco Ray sends the twins, Michael and Geoffrey, to their beds at noon. Depending on the camera angle, one twin (who lies closest to the camera) has his head atop his pillow at the middle of the bed, and in other shots that pillow is much further back near the headboard and the boy's head lies on the blanket.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the scene where the three Barone kids are singing along to the Hackidu song with Robert on the couch, the scene opens with a picture of the house from the outside, and it is light and not raining at all. Then, when Ray comes in minutes later, it is suddenly dark and pouring rain.
