Holy Crap - S2-E2

Corrected entry: At one point, Peter's father tells Lois "Maybe you won't go to Hell after all. Maybe you'll just be sent to Purgatory with all the unbaptized babies." Catholics believe that unbaptized babies are sent to Limbo, not Purgatory, and a fanatically devout Catholic like Mr. Griffin would know that.

Correction: Purgatory IS Limbo. Purgatory is the place between heaven and hell, as is Limbo. By definition we are merely dealing with a discrepancy in perceived common language.

Correction: Like all telescopes, it can be collapsed or extended, which is what you are seeing here.

E. Peterbus Unum - S2-E18

Corrected entry: The gas, electricity and water to Petoria have all been cut off, and there is no food in the house, yet all of these things are available and in use later at the big party attended by various world leaders.

Correction: The fact that the various world leaders were able to gain entry to Petoria, it would make sense that the world leaders might have brought food to the party. Even if not, the US army might have given them or allowed them to buy some basic foods. There was no sign of whether gas and electricity were turned back on. They were cooking on a charcoal barbecue and it was daylight during the party.

Correction: Not really trivia. It's incredibly obvious to anyone who's seen the movie that this is Charlie and Grampa Joe- in fact there are several close-ups of them during the episode.


DaBoom - S2-E3

Corrected entry: When Peter has the fight with the chicken in the part where they are on the overpass and the chicken lands on the truck then, the truck is driving away from the overpass but Peter doesn't move in the next shot it shows Peter on the same overpass but the truck the chicken was riding on again drives under the same overpass Peter is on with the chicken on the same truck.

Correction: No. The truck does move. Peter runs quickly ahead (faster than the truck) to another overpass, which the truck goes under, and Peter jumps off, with the joke being that Peter somehow overtook the truck.

DaBoom - S2-E3

Corrected entry: When the Generals are looking at the screen that says Happy New Year, in one shot of the y in Year, the bottom of it curves to the left and in another shot it's straight.

Tobin OReilly

Correction: The words are made of moving lights that are tracking flying missiles - you'd expect them to move about a bit, wouldn't you?

Correction: The rules of this site are quite clear - if you have to use slow motion or freeze frame to spot a minor mistake, it is invalid, unless the mistake is major.

E. Peterbus Unum - S2-E18

Corrected entry: In the scene where Peter and the delegates of the UN are in the meeting room, when everyone laughs at Peter, you can see that some of the country names on the labels are spelled wrong. For example, there is "Danmark", "Maxico", and "Morrocco". Also, it looks like three of the seats are not filled. Why would there not be any UN delegates at the meeting?

Correction: The misspelling is certainly intentional.


Why would it be?

I believe it is to show that the representatives are supposed to be other people that have seceded from their countries and formed their own states. Danmerk would be Dan, Maxico would be Max and I think Morrocco would be Morris (Not sure on this one), much like Peter's is Petoria.

Love Thy Trophy - S2-E5

Corrected entry: Peter invites all the neighbors to his house, supposedly for tea. During the meeting, Peter excuses himself to ransack the other homes for the trophy. After the meeting, Peter, Lois and Chris are shown walking back to their own house, which was also ransacked.

Correction: There is nothing to indicate that this scene took place immediately after Peter ransacked all the other houses. All we see is that they are walking back into their house and the fact that someone ransacked their house (which couldn't have been Peter), would mean that one of the neighbours had the same idea as Peter and waited until they left to look through their house.

Let's Go to the Hop - S2-E14

Corrected entry: In Chris's room, Peter and Louis accusing Chris of possessing a toad, when Chris says, "What about Meg. It could be hers." you can hear someone go, "Ha ha." on the sound track. It's no one in the family, as you can see none of their lips move.

Correction: Nobody says, "Ha ha." If you turn on the subtitles on the DVD, you can see it's Lois saying, "Oh now, dont."

Wasted Talent - S2-E20

Corrected entry: When Peter gets kicked out of the beer factory, he comes home drunk to find Meg chained to a huge weight so she can't get away from the piano which Lois is forcing her to play. When Peter sits down and starts playing, Lois realizes how good he is and she tells Meg she's off the hook and to go try the Clarinet. Yet Meg gets up and runs away. What happens to the chain and the weight? If Meg could run this fast when she was tied up, why didn't she just try before?

Correction: Just after Lois says "You're like the idiot from Shine", she says "Meg you're free" and Meg lifts up her leg, and Lois takes off the shackle. It's made very clear on the screen.

Wasted Talent - S2-E20

Corrected entry: When you see the Pawtucket Patriot, the shadows change several times (Just like in the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory).

Correction: The animators didn't include shadows in this scene, let alone their perspectives.


Correction: This is supposed to be part of the joke, how a huge motorcycle just appears out of nowhere. It's to give it sort of a romantic edge.

Death Is a Bitch - S2-E6

Corrected entry: In the bar shoot-out, the participants are covered with bullets. Once the rules of death are reinstated, every person with a bullet in a fatal spot should be dead.

Correction: In theory that would be the case, but in the show Death has to actually come and "kill" the person. In this episode its shown that Death himself has to touch the person or take them away before they are actually dead. If he wanted to he could go back to the bar and collect all the people that shot themselves but he wouldn't have much reason to.

DaBoom - S2-E3

Corrected entry: Right after the Y2k takes effect and it shows the family (assumed to be only a little while later), Peter comments on how he was the third Hardy Boy. When Lois corrects him by saying that there were only two Hardy Boys, Peter says "Just like there was no apocalypse? HE SHOOTS HE SCORES." and slams into Lois with his stomach, causing her to fall down. When the shot changes, Louis is suddenly back on her feet. The transition between the two was less than a second - not nearly enough time for her to get back up.

Correction: All Peter does is bump her off screen and into something. We don't actually see her fall down.

Correction: The scale goes from 0 to 25 to 50 in 5 pounds increments, which means the arrow points to just under 30 pounds.


There's Something About Paulie - S2-E16

Corrected entry: When Peter says "It must be better living in England, the worst they have there is drive-by-arguments." It goes to a 'flashback', and in the flashback, when the car stops, it's on the right side of the road. In England, cars drive on the left side of the road.

Correction: The drive by is in Peter's imagination. Peter is an idiot and seems reasonable for him to get the side of the road wrong.

E. Peterbus Unum - S2-E18

Corrected entry: Joe Swanson says he spent his tax return on a new State-of-the-art TV with surround sound but later in the episode we see this TV when the power goes, doesn't look very new or modern.


Correction: He's only allowed to own one television set?

Plus that could very well be state of the art, compared to no TV at all.

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.

Answer: Mort is Jewish, and Walt Disney was said to be antisemitic. So it would make sense in a Disney universe all the inhabitants would share his supposed beliefs.
