Barely Legal - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Peter, Quagmire and Cleveland become cops because Joe trains them and they are all at Peter's, Joe has binoculars and is looking across the street and saying he is watching his wife Bonnie in her house. In just about every episode it is stated that Joe and Bonnie's house is right next to Peter's. So why is he looking across the street when their house is next to Peter's?

Barely Legal - S5-E8

Audio problem: Just after Peter graduates from the Police Academy, he goes home to Lois and draws his gun in the kitchen, which gets Lois very excited. Every time Peter fires his revolver, you'll hear a soft, but distinctive clink briefly after each shot. This clink comes from shell casings hitting the floor, which revolvers make impossible. Revolvers are designed to eject expended shell casings only while its user is reloading, not after each shot is fired. Only semiautomatic firearms immediately eject expended cartridges immediately after having been fired. Unless I'm mistaken, the entire gunshot sound originally came from a 9mm semiautomatic pistol.

Barely Legal - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: Every time Cleveland's tub slides out of the house, there's never any plumbing attached to it. It just sits on top of the floor so it slides out easily. In this episode its very easy to see.

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.
