Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Stewie tries to get his mind control device back from the kitchen. The cupboard door is open when he falls. In the very next shot, Lois turns the light on in the kitchen, and we see the door has closed without anyone touching it. It is open again after that. (00:09:50)

Mind over Murder - S1-E4

Audio problem: When Peter goes down to the basement, the Pawtucket Patriot guy appears and Peter thinks he's coming on to him. He says, "Listen, I don't swing that way, pal. I got a date with my female wife, I just came down to get some beers." However, his lips very obviously do not sync up with those words.

Suggested correction: In this scene Peter's eyes are supposed to be larger then normal. The reason for this is he is explaining what happened last time he drank Irish Coffee. The large eyes are used to show that he is "buzzing" from the drink, as you will also notice that he comments that Tom Hanks is a funny guy and when the character says "I have AIDS" Peter bursts out laughing.

The mistake is a continuity error regarding Peter's eyes going from big (as a result of the Irish coffee) to as they are usually in the next shot. The mistake still stands.

Chitty Chitty Death Bang - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Meg introduces Jennifer to Lois, she is, as usual, wearing her glasses. However, right when Jennifer says, "Bye Meg," Meg is seen in the shot, and her glasses have disappeared. Her glasses are back on in the next shot.

Lois: Hello?
Peter: I can't take the trash out today, I'm working late at the office.
Lois: The caller ID says you're calling from the kitchen. In fact I can see you.
Peter: [Edging sideways.] OK, can you see me now?
Lois: No.
Peter: Now I am at the office.

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.
