One If By Clam, Two If By Sea - S3-E4

Other mistake: After the hurricane passes, Peter acts like he's been impaled by a wooden plank. He pulls it out as if it was attached to his right side.

This happens again throughout the episode. (00:10:55 - 00:12:30)

Underage Peter - S14-E14

Plot hole: They're in the Clam complaining that they can't drink when they make the revelation that Brian can because he's technically 56. But Quagmire should be able to drink, as in a much earlier episode, he's revealed to be over 60.
