Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Stewie tries to get his mind control device back from the kitchen. The cupboard door is open when he falls. In the very next shot, Lois turns the light on in the kitchen, and we see the door has closed without anyone touching it. It is open again after that. (00:09:50)

Suggested correction: In this scene Peter's eyes are supposed to be larger then normal. The reason for this is he is explaining what happened last time he drank Irish Coffee. The large eyes are used to show that he is "buzzing" from the drink, as you will also notice that he comments that Tom Hanks is a funny guy and when the character says "I have AIDS" Peter bursts out laughing.

The mistake is a continuity error regarding Peter's eyes going from big (as a result of the Irish coffee) to as they are usually in the next shot. The mistake still stands.

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During the flash back at the ice cream store Peter's eyes change in size twice before he licks the ice cream and then one more time after he licks the ice cream before falling down.

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22

Peter Griffin: You better watch who you're calling a child Lois. Because if I'm a child then you know what that makes you? A paedophile, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand here and be lectured by a pervert.

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.
