Back to the Pilot - S10-E5

Character mistake: After Stewie and Brian go to tell the past versions of themselves not to tell 1999 Brian about 9/11, Stewie then finds out that Brian then told 1999 Brian to write the Harry Potter novels. This would have been impossible because the first Harry Potter novel was published in 1997, 2 years before the time period Stewie and Brian arrive in. (00:16:35)
