Wasted Talent - S2-E20

Corrected entry: In the shot where you see Pawtucket Pat and the group, look at the beer room from the door, Charlie and his grandpa are present (representing the characters from the 1971 Wonka film).

Correction: Not really trivia. It's incredibly obvious to anyone who's seen the movie that this is Charlie and Grampa Joe- in fact there are several close-ups of them during the episode.


Wasted Talent - S2-E20

Corrected entry: When Peter gets kicked out of the beer factory, he comes home drunk to find Meg chained to a huge weight so she can't get away from the piano which Lois is forcing her to play. When Peter sits down and starts playing, Lois realizes how good he is and she tells Meg she's off the hook and to go try the Clarinet. Yet Meg gets up and runs away. What happens to the chain and the weight? If Meg could run this fast when she was tied up, why didn't she just try before?

Correction: Just after Lois says "You're like the idiot from Shine", she says "Meg you're free" and Meg lifts up her leg, and Lois takes off the shackle. It's made very clear on the screen.

Wasted Talent - S2-E20

Corrected entry: When you see the Pawtucket Patriot, the shadows change several times (Just like in the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory).

Correction: The animators didn't include shadows in this scene, let alone their perspectives.


Underage Peter - S14-E14

Plot hole: They're in the Clam complaining that they can't drink when they make the revelation that Brian can because he's technically 56. But Quagmire should be able to drink, as in a much earlier episode, he's revealed to be over 60.
