Lethal Weapons - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Peter is calling for people to fight Lois, he is standing next to a sign that says "Fight the ass kicking housewife" and has metal rings at the top. When it moves to a closer shot, a hyphen has appeared between "ass" and "kicking". Then, after the space where the commercial break would have been, the sign now says "$10.00" and there are no metal rings. Finally, in the next shot, the sign says "Fight the..." and has metal rings on top. (00:06:55)

Mr. Saturday Knight - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: At the bottom of the stairs there is a picture of Peter and Lois, and the song "So Long, Farwell" starts.

Not only that, look closely at the picture of Stewie, you will see it has grown.

Mr. Griffin Goes to Washington - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Weed is crying about losing his job, we see a view of a long line of trees in the window behind him. The camera switches to a close-up of Peter. When it zooms out again, the trees on the right of Mr. Weed are missing.

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

Suggested correction: I watched this part of the episode twice and no trees are missing in the window behind Mr. Weed after the close-up on Peter. Actually, Mr. Weed's head is covering part of the window where you can't see the trees on the right when he's lying on the table, but when he gets up you can see all the trees.

One If By Clam, Two If By Sea - S3-E4

Other mistake: After the hurricane passes, Peter acts like he's been impaled by a wooden plank. He pulls it out as if it was attached to his right side. However, the way the metal on the clasp was bent, the only way the wooden plank could've been positioned that way is if the metal was over his shoulder.

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.
