Bowling - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: In the side of the story when Lois takes the boys, Malcolm has some kiddy bumpers put in to help him bowl. In the next scene when Reese is about to tell Beth the joke, you can see the lane which Malcolm was just at but there are no bumpers in the gutters. Then later when Malcolm stands up to Lois they are back in the gutters.

Book Club - S3-E3

Factual error: It's very very unlikely that police would chase all those women through town (even take helicopters to arrest them) just for making noise on someone's property for couple of minutes.

Opening theme song: Yes, no, maybe, I don't know, can you repeat the question? You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. Life is unfair.
