E. Peterbus Unum - S2-E18

The Big Bang Theory - S9-E16

Continuity mistake: When Brian and Stewie arrive in Leonardo's atelier we know that they are in Florence for two reasons: because of history and because we see Palazzo Vecchio (which is in Piazza della Signoria, in Florence) outside the window. Then when Stewie and Bertram are fighting with Leonardo's flying machine the city of Florence is wrongly represented as if it was Venice, with the see, the lagoon and the canals.

Quagmire's Dad - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: When Brian stops at the Marriott, he orders a Jack on the rocks. As he is ordering it, there is a woman in the background with a martini, then when the camera cuts to behind the counter when Brian receives the Jack on the rocks, the same woman has red wine instead of a martini.

I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar - S2-E8

Suggested correction: It's actually his finger, not his dog tag.

In which case, his tag is missing.

I agree, it's not his thumb because in the next shot of him in the same position, his tag is now there (or colored correctly) and his thumb isn't seen.

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: When the guests walk through the secret passage, the order of the guests change between shots. First, it's Peter, then Chris, then Carl, then Doctor Hartman, then Seamus, then Quagmire, then Lois. But in the shot of the passage, the order is Peter, then Chris, then Carl, then Lois, then Consuela, then Doctor Hartman. Then when they reach the secret room, the order is Peter, then Chris, then Carl, then Lois, then Bonnie, then Quagmire, then Derek, then Jillian. (00:20:00)

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: Peter knocks out Joe during the search in the hallway. Yet when everyone is fighting about the motives, there is a wide shot of the fight but Joe can be seen fighting behind a couch with Doctor Hartman and Derek. He can't have regained consciousness, because he doesn't regain consciousness until later in the episode. (00:19:20)

Casual Person

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mayor West panics, Peter shakes him and he falls against a shelf. The plate on the end of the shelf falls off and smashes on the floor.

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: When Carl mentions Labyrinth to Tom Tucker and Diane Simmons, Meg can be seen at the other side of the table sitting in front of Joe. But when we next see Meg a few moments later, Doctor Hartman is now sitting where Joe was. (00:07:25)

Casual Person

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Character mistake: When driving to the manor, Lois wakes up and says "Peter, look" as if she knows they are there. She could have not been able to notice this since the trees are blocking all view of the manor. (00:03:00)

Casual Person

Yug Ylimaf - S11-E4

Other mistake: Everything goes backwards in time and goes that far back that Meg (who is voiced by Mila Kunis) goes back to being voiced by Lacey Chabert (who voiced Meg in season 1). However, when Lacey Chabert does her line to Stewie being in the Griffin house for the first time, it goes back to Mila Kunis when Stewie is "reborn". However, if everything was going backwards and Brian fixed everything to make it goes forwards again, then it still should have been Lacey Chabert voicing Meg, not Mila Kunis. (00:16:30 - 00:19:35)

Casual Person

Road to Germany - S7-E3

Revealing mistake: At Warsaw Temple, when Mort says "my bargain hunting Aunt Flo", production initials appear next to Brian's tail.

Casual Person

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: There are several differences during the flashbacks and what actually happened. Such as when Muriel is killed Diane appears with everyone else, but in the flashback she appeared moments later. Second, when everyone appears in front of Derek's dead body there are two differences, Tom doesn't say "Dear God!" in the flashback and Diane appears 1 second later in the flashback. Third, Stephanie doesn't say "Did the cork hit me?" when she is shot in the flashback. Fourth, Priscilla isn't wearing a scarf in the flashback even though when it actually happened she was wearing a scarf. Fifth, when Derek says he is going up to the roof he is standing next to Peter and Lois, in the flashback he standing next to Lois and Jillian. Sixth, when Derek leaves the dining room to go to the balcony, no-one is standing next to the door, but in the flashback Diane and Doctor Hartman are standing right next too the door. Seven, when Muriel is killed she is in the middle of a hallway. But in the flashback, she is killed outside Tom Tucker's room.

Casual Person

Don't Make Me Over - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: On the tour bus, in one shot we see Meg wearing her outfit that she wore when she had her make-over. Then about 10 seconds later you see her in a different outfit altogether.
