Brian: Portrait of a Dog - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: The morning after the dog show, Peter and Chris are watching the news in the kitchen. Peter has a plate in front of him with two eggs and bacon on it. It is turned so that it makes almost a smiley face with the bacon towards his arm and the eggs crooked to the side. In the next shot from a different angle showing Lois in the kitchen, the plate rotates so now the egg and bacon smile is directly facing Peter. (00:10:27)

Brian: Portrait of a Dog - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After the dog show, the next establishing shot is the family car driving down the road past a fence, a blue building, and a pink building.

Brian: Portrait of a Dog - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: At the dog show, Stewie starts to try to get out of his stroller before asking Meg to push him into a lake. The person on the right of the screen as he's struggling is only seen from the calves down, and is wearing blue pants and black shoes. After Meg gets up and says she'll find him a juice box, the people behind Stewie do not match up with this at all. And then in the next close up of him, there are identical legs in the same position as before, but now with black pants and white shoes. (00:06:42)

Brian: Portrait of a Dog - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After Lois gives Brian a new collar for the show, he turns to thank her and in the reflection of the mirror, we see there is a cabinet and the shower curtain on the right side of the room.

The Son Also Draws - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When the head Native American is saying he wishes he had a spiritual vision also, there is just his right hand man beside him and the Indian in the grey suit to his other side with nobody directly behind him. When the camera cuts to a wide angle from more of a distance, suddenly the fat Indian with the cigar appears behind him, then vanishes again in the next shot. (00:20:04)

The Son Also Draws - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When the Native Americans make ghost sounds at Peter and Lois scaring them out of the office, the chair on the right side of the screen is empty. It cuts to Peter and Lois turning to run out of the door for a split second, then back to the Native Americans in a different angle. Suddenly that chair that was empty now has an Native American in a grey suit sitting there. (00:15:44)

The Son Also Draws - S1-E6

The Son Also Draws - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Peter picks up the phone to call the Scout leaders and points his finger up in the air. In the side shot, it's just his finger extended up, but when it cuts to a closer angle, suddenly his thumb is extended outward as well. (00:07:00)

The Son Also Draws - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: On the couch, Lois tells Peter that maybe Chris is the one that should be earning that badge. As she does, Peter's arm is down at his side and her hand is resting on it. It then cuts to his reaction and suddenly his arm is out in front of him with no time between shots.

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22

Peter Griffin: You better watch who you're calling a child Lois. Because if I'm a child then you know what that makes you? A paedophile, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand here and be lectured by a pervert.

Trivia: A Quahog is another name for a clam, thus all the jokes and places in town (like the drunken clam bar) the show makes reference about.

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.
