Family Guy

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.

Baby Not On Board - S7-E4

Plot hole: Stewie gets out of the car seat and goes back to bed, leaving the blanket at the bottom of the seat. When they get to New York, Lois goes to get him out and realises he's gone. But when they started the trip the blanket was covering the entire seat to make it look like Stewie was still in it. So who ever "covered" him up knew he wasn't in the seat before they set off.

Dog Gone - S8-E8

Plot hole: Brian scolds Stewie for burning down a liquor store and murdering a dog. However, Brian wasn't in the living room when the firefighter told Lois what happened.

There's Something About Paulie - S2-E16

Plot hole: If the groom didn't know who Lois was but had a picture of her, how could he have known that she was at the wedding so he could place the bomb in the blue sedan? If he had put the bomb in their car while they were still at home, they both would have been blown up. So this means he placed the bomb in the car at the wedding. He didn't know however that Lois was there until the end, where he caught up with them and told them not to start the car. Had he known earlier, he wouldn't have been arguing with his bride about the hit occurring during their honeymoon. (00:20:05 - 00:21:35)

McStroke - S6-E9

Plot hole: Brian bets Stewie about being at high school for a week. However, this was before Peter's stroke, and before the fire at McBurgertown. It would take at least a few weeks for McBurgertown was rebuilt, then Peter had his stroke, and then Lois tells Chris Peter's stroke was 3 months ago. After this scene, Stewie tells Brian he has lost the bet. However, the bet would only last one week.

Stewie, Chris & Brian's Excellent Adventure - S13-E7

Plot hole: When it is revealed that Chris's teacher was never born, Teacher Doug introduces himself, despite the fact that if Chris's teacher was never born, Doug would already have been teacher for the entire year, and therefore all of the students should know him and he would not have to introduce himself.

Death Is a Bitch - S2-E6

Plot hole: As evidenced by the big bar room shootout, even if they couldn't die in this episode, wounds would still show up on your body (if shot with a gun, there would still be a hole). So, when Peter jumped off the building, when he hit the ground he should have been reduced to a fleshy puddle, even if he weren't dead.

The Unkindest Cut - S16-E19

Plot hole: When Stewie and Brian are at the diner Stewie says he negotiated a deal with the mob by telling them he convinced Mort to give him his flash drive with the info to put the mobsters in prison. When they actually meet, Stewie tells the mob guys the flash drive is "his" and that he bought the coverage. Then he says his address is on the drive so they can mail it back to him. The mob guys didn't realise Stewie lied about whose flash drive it really was. (00:15:40 - 00:19:00)

The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire - S4-E5

Plot hole: Brian and Peter see Loretta and Quagmire having sex yet, they aren't sure who she's having an affair with. There's no way they couldn't have noticed it was Quagmire - the couch was facing the front door! And obviously Quagmire was on top of Loretta considering the fact that he leans up, says something, then she tells him to get back down here and finish.

Suggested correction: It is possible that depending on their position when they walk in the that Quagmire's face could have been hidden from view. And it's not until after Brian and Peter have left that Quagmire sits up to ask what was that, indicating he hadn't seen Peter and Brian.

Road to the Multiverse - S8-E1

Question: When Stewie and Brian are in the Disney universe, why did everyone attack Mort?

Answer: Mort is Jewish, and Walt Disney was said to be antisemitic. So it would make sense in a Disney universe all the inhabitants would share his supposed beliefs.
