Continuity mistake: After Fett flies off with frozen Han it soon cuts to Vader and Luke during their lightsaber duel. When Luke is being pulled through the broken window he's holding his lightsaber in his right hand, then it disappears from his outstretched hand in the wide shot, but in the next closeup his lightsaber is suddenly clipped to his belt at his left side.

Brian: Portrait of a Dog - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: The morning after the dog show, Peter and Chris are watching the news in the kitchen. Peter has a plate in front of him with two eggs and bacon on it. It is turned so that it makes almost a smiley face with the bacon towards his arm and the eggs crooked to the side. In the next shot from a different angle showing Lois in the kitchen, the plate rotates so now the egg and bacon smile is directly facing Peter. (00:10:27)

Brian: Portrait of a Dog - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After the dog show, the next establishing shot is the family car driving down the road past a fence, a blue building, and a pink building.

Barely Legal - S5-E8

Connie: You know, Meg, there's no dogs allowed. So, you're going to have to leave. But Brian can stay.
Brian Griffin: You know, Connie, I think I have this theory about why you're such a bitch.
Connie: Excuse me?
Meg Griffin: Brian, let's just go.
Brian Griffin: No, no, no, no, no, no. Hang on a minute, Meg, hang on. You see, Connie, you're popular because you developed early and started giving handjobs when you were twelve. But now you can't stand to look in the mirror because all you see is a whore. So you pick on Meg to avoid the inevitable realization that once your body's used up by age nineteen, you're gonna be a worn out chalky skinned burlap sack that even your own stepdad won't want. How is that? Am I in the ballpark?
[Connie runs off crying].

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.
