Continuity mistake: In series 4 episode 13 Jungle Love: When the family are escaping the tribespeople, Chris is wearing the tribal clothing. When they jump in the plane there is a brief far-off shot of Chris wearing his usual cap and t-shirt. In a close up shot moments later, he is wearing the tribal gear again.
Continuity mistake: After Lois accuses Stewie of peeing on the carpet, he asks her to bend down and slaps her with a glove. The glove remains in his hand in that cut, is still there when there is a wide shot of Peter, Stewie, Lois and Brian (you can just see it next to his trousers in his hand), but when it cuts back to Stewie and he starts on about "the outrages" etc, it is gone (the cut is instant, no time for him to put it back in his pocket). A common error, this one just struck me as strange, because the sandwich Stewie threw at Lois is there the entire scene. (00:03:35)Gary O'Reilly
Other mistake: When Quagmire is sticking his body out of the car door and yelling "Whooooooa! Whoooooooa!", look at the person in the back seat. It certainly isn't Joe, who was there in the previous shot, in fact it looks like another Quagmire. (00:05:30)Blibbetyblip
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lois goes down to the room where Peter is dancing, Peter is wearing blue pants. After he walks over to the door and greets her, he still has blue pants. The next shot of Lois and Peter dancing has him wearing his normal green pants, but after that it goes back to blue pants for the rest of the scene. (00:11:35)
Continuity mistake: When Stewie is in the sterile glass cage, Lois is changing his diaper with rubber gloves built into one of the panels (like Homer Simpson's in the opening credits). In previous and subsequent shots, however, the panel is solid glass, with no gloves. (Series 4: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Fonz).
Continuity mistake: When Karen Black is first shown, her blue uniform is sleeveless, showing her white shirtsleeves. After a cut to the "Dawson's Creek" kids, Peter says "It was a movie in the seventies," and Black's outfit has sleeves. Later, when she is helping people off the plane, her uniform once again is sleeveless.Twotall
