Patriot Games - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When Stewie is playing golf at the top of the stairs before attacking Brian, the layout of the upstairs floor changes quite radically between shots. First Stewie is playing golf with the stairway behind him. Then when Brian puts on the disguise and walks past, there's suddenly a wall behind Stewie. Brian walks off to the left and Stewie begins to chase him that way, but in the next shot Stewie is chasing Brian off to the right. In that same shot you can see that Stewie is running away from the stairs, but in the next shot, without changing direction, he pushes Brian down the stairs, which mysteriously have appeared in front of him.

Patriot Games - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the Griffins have Tom Brady over for dinner, when we first see the establishing shot of everyone at the table, Chris is sitting with an empty chair between him and Tom. However, when he asks if he can call him Tom along with Lois and Meg, he is sitting right next to Tom, with no empty chair between the two.

Lois: Hello?
Peter: I can't take the trash out today, I'm working late at the office.
Lois: The caller ID says you're calling from the kitchen. In fact I can see you.
Peter: [Edging sideways.] OK, can you see me now?
Lois: No.
Peter: Now I am at the office.

Business Guy - S8-E9

Question: In the episode, Peter threatens to fire Lois, and she responds with "you wouldn't" and Peter then replies with "Oh really, does the name Lacey Chabert mean anything to you?" which in turn makes Lois go wide eyed and reply with "OK, I'll behave" and Peter then goes on to add "Yes you will" Can anyone explain this joke if it is a joke to comprehend?

Answer: Lacey Chabert was the actress who originally voiced Meg in early episodes. She left of her own accord due to being in school and other acting work; Seth MacFarlane has stated there was no tension with her leaving, but it makes for a handy joke for the show.
