Continuity mistake: Episode 16 Season 6 "No Motorcycles." Francis calls Hal out to the driveway where two motorcycles are parked. In the first camera shot the motorcycles are parked side by side with the front wheels turned in the same direction. All subsequent shots of the motorcycles in the driveway show them in a different position, one angled behind the other, with the front wheels turned in opposite directions.
