An App a Day - S14-E13

Herpe, the Love Sore - S12-E16

Factual error: Stewie could not have gotten herpes by blood - it's only transmitted by infected saliva or skin.


The New Adventures of Old Tom - S14-E18

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode the sign says "Every B deserves a J" underneath the sign of Jason's Jewelry but when Brian and Stewie go to return it that wording is gone.

Airport '07 - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When they are on the Redneck Tour, when we first see Peter talking, the man behind him has a mustache. As the camera zooms in closer to Peter, the man is suddenly clean shaven.


A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode with everyone at the town tree, initially Lois' pants are red, in the same scene moments later they are tan, and seconds later they're red again. (00:01:05)

Meet The Quagmires - S5-E18

Other mistake: Peter goes back in time and sees Lois at age 18. Death says everyone will see Peter as being 18 too. Problem: Lois and Peter aren't the same age. In later episodes, Lois reveals she's 2 years older than Peter so Peter should be 16 when he meets Lois.


Fat Guy Strangler - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When Peter walks away from Brian with the hula hoop around his waist, he runs into the stereo, knocking a vase of flowers on the floor, shattering the vase. Next shot shows the mess cleaned up without anyone even cleaning it.

The Blind Side - S10-E11

Continuity mistake: When we first see Kate and her parents at the restaurant there are only 2 empty chairs. Stewie then sits in the chair next to Kate.

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22
