Continuity mistake: The age difference between Chris, Meg and Stewie keeps changing throughout the series. At the beginning of the series, Chris is 13, Meg is 15 and Stewie is 1 (he is after S1 E3 Chitty Chitty Death Bang). In series 4, Chris then goes to high school so he must be 14 by that time. It isn't referenced that Meg has aged between series 1 and series 5 until S5 E10 Peter's Two Dads where she turns 17, so she must have turned 16 during the past five seasons. Despite Meg having aged two years throughout the series, Chris remains having only aged one year since S4 (Age 14 referenced in S9 E13 Trading Places). Then in S10 E10 Meg & Quagmire, Meg then turns 18, and still Chris hasn't aged. Also, Stewie remains one year old after all of Chris and Meg's birthdays. If it were consistent, Meg would be now 18, Chris would now be 16 (not 14) and Stewie would now be 4 (not 1).
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.
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].
