Finders Keepers - S12-E1

Continuity mistake: When Stewie jumps off the side of the hot air balloon, he has no rope attached to his ankle. Next shot they show him hanging from the hot air balloon from a rope tied to his ankle.


Finders Keepers - S12-E1

Character mistake: In the cutaway gag involving George and Lorraine McFly from "Back To The Future" Lorraine says she hasn't seen Marty from high school since prom. George, Lorraine and Marty all attended the Enchantment Under the Sea dance in November 1955, not the prom, which is usually held in May.


Finders Keepers - S12-E1

Continuity mistake: At the Founding Father Restaurant, Stewie is drawing on a treasure map in red crayon and Peter takes it. In the next scene, where Peter shows the map to Quagmire and Joe at the Clam, the red crayon mark is no longer there.

Casual Person

A Fistful of Meg - S12-E4

Continuity mistake: In the episode "FOX-y Lady" (7-10) it was established that Quagmire was 61 years old. In this episode, Quagmire stated to Meg he was bullied in 1986 and a flashback shows that he was a teenager. So how could Quagmire have been bullied in 1986 as a teenager if he should have been in his 30's at this time? (00:12:15)

Casual Person

Christmas Guy - S12-E8

Continuity mistake: In episode 6, right before Brian's death when Stewie decides to go back inside the house to get his knee pads, he stops right before he enters the house. In this episode, when the same sequence is displayed along with Stewie (from the future) returning to that time, his former self never stops before entering the building. (00:18:40)


Peter Problems - S12-E9

Continuity mistake: Peter's boss tells him to put on his helmet. He reaches behind him and out of nowhere, a red helmet appears in his hand.


Herpe, the Love Sore - S12-E16

Factual error: Stewie could not have gotten herpes by blood - it's only transmitted by infected saliva or skin.

The Most Interesting Man in the World - S12-E17
