Family Guy

Perfect Castaway - S4-E12

Factual error: In the very beginning of Perfect Castaway, when Peter is talking to his workers and telling them he's going to have to "put them down", he pulls out a shotgun and four shells. He puts two shells in each barrel, but then continues to shoot 5 times when they jump in the water. First of all the shotgun is a double-barreled, break action type shotgun, so Peter should only have been able to put two shells in it. Second of all, even if he could put two shells in each barrel, he would only be able to fire it four times.

Fast Times at Buddy Cianci Jr. High - S4-E2

Factual error: At the end of Peter's trombone solo, he holds out his last note. While holding the note, he moves the slide with no change to the note whatsoever. Since the pitch of the trombone is controlled by the slide, it would be impossible for Peter to move the slide as much as he does without changing the pitch he's playing. (00:02:00)

Perfect Castaway - S4-E12

Factual error: When Stewie is playing Simon Says, the sequence Stewie plays is different than the one that the Simon Says played. If he played it wrong, there should have been a sound from the Simon Says indicating that Stewie played it wrong.

Boys Do Cry - S5-E15

Factual error: When Brian fires his pistol in the air, eventually killing the Super Devil, we hear six gunshots, each followed the distinct clink of the ejected cartridge hitting the ground. Trouble is, Brian is firing a revolver, which does not eject the cartridge after the bullet is fired. Only automatics do that.

Show generally

Factual error: In all the scenes where Peter wrecks Cleveland's house and Cleveland is in the bath, the tub always slides easily out of the house with Cleveland in it and onto the ground. There are no pipes or any kind of plumbing visible on the bathroom floor where the tub should have been connected.

European Road Show - S3-E20

Factual error: When Peter has his KISS trivia game with Dave the nudist, he asks what the ad read that brought Peter Criss to KISS, and they both answer in unison: "Drummer willing to do anything to make it". In fact, the ad read: "Drummer with 15 years' experience willing to do anything to make it". As the original ad is referenced and shown in several biographies on KISS, as well as the "KISS: eXposed" video, it's not something these two trivia experts would have missed. (00:11:00)

Twotall

Mr. Saturday Knight - S3-E9

Factual error: In the scene where Lois drops Peter off at the Renaissance Fair, when Peter gets out of the car, the door opens the wrong way (the way suicide doors open). This is noted to be a mistake in the director's commentary. (00:12:50)

And the Wiener is... - S3-E5

Factual error: When Meg is spinning her flag on the football field, she grips her flag at the bottom of the pole. She should grip in the middle of the pole, directly under the silk. It would be near-impossible to execute the spin she was doing if she was holding the pole that way.

Kathy Tjarks

A Fish Out of Water - S3-E10

Factual error: When Meg and Lois are in the back of a police car they escape by opening the back doors and getting away. The rear doors of a police car can only open from the outside, for obvious reasons and this escape could not be possible.

Tobin OReilly

Take My Wife - S13-E18

Factual error: When Carter puts on the Jack LaLanne record, you can see it has eight individual grooves (or rings) around it. However, records only have one continuous groove.

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.

Trivia: A Quahog is another name for a clam, thus all the jokes and places in town (like the drunken clam bar) the show makes reference about.

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.
