He's Too Sexy for His Fat - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Stewie is eating chocolate cake, he shoves his head in it and covers himself in cake. However when Peter walks in after having liposuction, all the cake has disappeared and Stewie is now completely clean. The bowl of grapes on the table is also gone. (00:11:40)

Death Is a Bitch - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Peter enters the cockpit and accidentally kills the pilots the cockpit looks small enough so that it could only fit Peter and the pilots in their seats. However, when he turns around to leave the cockpit looks big enough to fit an entire group of people.

Brian in Love - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: After Lois accuses Stewie of peeing on the carpet, he asks her to bend down and slaps her with a glove. The glove remains in his hand in that cut, is still there when there is a wide shot of Peter, Stewie, Lois and Brian (you can just see it next to his trousers in his hand), but when it cuts back to Stewie and he starts on about "the outrages" etc, it is gone (the cut is instant, no time for him to put it back in his pocket). A common error, this one just struck me as strange, because the sandwich Stewie threw at Lois is there the entire scene. (00:03:35)

E. Peterbus Unum - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Ulysses S. "Griffin" is chugging beer with Robert E. Lee, Ulysses wins. When he says "How's that Robert E. Lee," he puts the beer glass on his head. After Robert says, "Okay no more slaves, but we still don't have to read books," the glass is in Ulysses' hand. In the next shot it's on his head again. (00:10:05)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lois goes down to the room where Peter is dancing, Peter is wearing blue pants. After he walks over to the door and greets her, he still has blue pants. The next shot of Lois and Peter dancing has him wearing his normal green pants, but after that it goes back to blue pants for the rest of the scene. (00:11:35)

DaBoom - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: The position of the hole on the leg of Meg's pants changes. In the scene where Meg is putting the mouse traps around Joe, the hole is on the right side. When they arrive at the house with Randy Newman and Meg is telling Peter that the Twinkee factory in Natick may not even exist, the hole is on the left side. This happens again throughout the episode. (00:10:55 - 00:12:30)

Love Thy Trophy - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: In the end of the episode whilst the families are eating lunch at the picnic table there is a lot of plates of food and glasses on the table. Towards the end of the scene Brian says "I guess some mysteries are better left unsolved", there is a wide shot after he says this and every plate and glass from the table has disappeared.

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.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Quagmire considers the rest of them to be his best friends. He isn't drinking because they can't drink. He is complaining because since his friends can't drink - he won't drink, so he is still pissed.

It's still a plot hole considering Quagmire's age. I think the writers messed up big time.

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.
