Family Guy

Family Guy (1999)

27 corrected entries in season 3

European Road Show - S3-E20

Corrected entry: When KISS is shown on stage, Paul (The singer, also known as Starchild) has the star over his left eye. Paul always has the star over his right eye. Watch any video of KISS in makeup.

A Demon

Correction: Paul's star is always on his right eye. It may just look like it is wrong since it's on the left side of the screen, but because he's facing forward, that his his right side. You can see when he and Gene turn their back in disgust that the Star is on the right hand side (since now the viewer and he are "facing" the same way).

Death Lives - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Peter is in the van with Cleveland, Cleveland's voice is slow and how it normally is, except it shouldn't be. In another episode, Peter recounted that Cleveland was an auctioneer and was hit with an antique which made his voice slow.

curiouskid

Correction: Being a caller at an auction is a skill that needs to be learned. Since Cleveland originally spoke slowly, it's more likely that he began to speak faster once trained as an auctioneer, but the antique hitting him made him revert to his normal slow speaking voice.

The Thin White Line (1) - S3-E1

Corrected entry: In the scene where Brian and Joe bust the "Sunday school drug ring," the two get in a brawl with a group of drug-running midgets. Joe throws his nightstick at one drug-runner, punches a second, but kicks the third drug-runner, despite the fact that Joe is a paraplegic.

Mabon-Tail

Correction: Already submitted and corrected. He swings his chair around so violently his legs come flying up due to the centrifugal force. He doesn't move them himself.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Screwed The Pooch - S3-E13

Corrected entry: When Brian chases after the car after having seen dogs on TV, when it cuts to the close up of him hitting the car, he doesn't even touch it.

Correction: If you play it in slo-mo, you can see that he DOES hit it, but I'll admit that it doesn't look like it when played at normal speed.

European Road Show - S3-E20

Corrected entry: Lois refers to Gene Simmons by the name Chaim Witz, and they both say they knew each other and had sex together before Gene became famous. But the name "Chaim Witz" was the name Gene used in Israel as a child. According to his autobiography, when he came to New York as an eight-year-old, his name was changed to Gene Klein, and he never used the name "Chaim" in the US. Lois could not have known him when he went by the name Chaim Witz, and could certainly not have had sex with him at the time.

Twotall

Correction: He couldn't have told her his birth name? Perhaps she preferred it to Gene Klein, or was showing off her detailed knowledge of Simmons early life.

Screwed The Pooch - S3-E13

Corrected entry: When Peter is in the art gallery, he rubs out an eye on a Picasso picture and redraws it with a pencil. The eye he draws is white with a black outline and a blue iris, yet he only uses the one pencil.

Correction: The scene is entirely within Peter's fevered imagination. Anything can happen.

The Thin White Line (1) - S3-E1

Corrected entry: When the Griffins are driving Brian to rehab there's a front licence plate on the car, but it has no characters on it.

Tobin OReilly

Correction: So? It's probably a white piece of plastic. Our truck has that too.

And the Wiener is... - S3-E5

Corrected entry: Stewie's rendition of Rocket Man is very similar to William Shatner's version at the 1978 Science Fiction Film Awards.

troy fox

Correction: So similar in fact, that it is the whole reason they had Stewie doing it in the first place. The sequence is a spoof of William Shatner's performance. Pointing out jokes in the show cannot be classed as trivia.

Death Lives - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In the flashback scene where Peter meets Lois' father, Peter openly farts in anxiety. However, it was discovered in the previous season, when Peter gets his breast examined, that Peter had gas for the first time when he was 30. In this season, it is noted that Peter and Lois have been married for 17 years, and that Peter is 42. That would make Peter at most 25 when he first meets his father-in-law to be, 5 years before he first experienced passing gas.

Correction: It's doubtful that Peter really farted for the first time at age 30. He makes a lot of immature jokes and was probably kidding about this. If you took this seriously, you'd have to take a lot of the other outrageous things in the show seriously, too.

Stuck Together, Torn Apart - S3-E19

Corrected entry: In this episode, Peter goes on a date with Jennifer Love Hewitt, but on some copies of the the DVD case, it says he goes on a date with Gwyneth Paltrow.

Correction: This is a mistake on the DVD cover, and is not a movie mistake.

To Live and Die in Dixie - S3-E12

Corrected entry: A mistake in the subtitles: As Stewie yells, 'I've got blisters on me fingers.' after singing 'My big old fat ass baby', the subtitles read: "Imitates John Lennon." It is widely argued, but McCartney and Starr claim that it was Starr who said that, after a particularly vigorous rehearsal for Beatles song, 'Helter Skelter'.

Correction: You've missed the point of Stewie's actions - he is imitating John Lennon (whose voice is completely different to Ringo's) regardless of who said the line in real life.

Brian Does Hollywood (2) - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In the action scene at the beginning, Stewie is shooting a helicopter and it blows up, making Stewie fall through a glass-top building. We see him fall through from the inside of the building, but the helicopter is nowhere in sight.

Correction: Fairly obvious that this scene is happening in Stewie's imagination. The rules don't apply.

Stuck Together, Torn Apart - S3-E19

Corrected entry: This episode explains that Stewie's head became that weird shape from banging it on the roof. But in earlier episodes showing his birth, his head has always been that shape.

Correction: It's a cutaway scene. Most of these did not happen in the Family Guy "world" but meant as jokes for the story.

Lethal Weapons - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Quagmire calls 911, his hand actually dials '044'.

Correction: You never see Quagmire dial the phone, just his body stuck in the window.

Peter Griffin: Husband, Father...Brother? - S3-E14

Corrected entry: When Brian is reading the diary of Nate Griffin, there is an entry about a new colt that farted on him while he was grooming. The entry refers to the colt as 'she' many times. A colt is a young male horse - they should use the term 'filly'.

Correction: We can assume that since Nate is Peter's relative, that they are both complete idiots and he would not know the difference, which is why it is written this way deliberately. Besides, this is a character's mistake, not the show's mistake.

From Method to Madness - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Stewie is trying to play the french horn, the music score written on the wall behind him makes no sense. One line is two and a half beats long, and the next line is four beats. There are no measure lines anywhere.

Correction: This is a school for young children, it is quite possible one of them drew that music score, not knowing too much about what to do. In fact, it could have been Stewie, who's just a baby.

Death Lives - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Death and Peter get into a fight outside the pet store, Death controls his severed arm to poke Peter in the eyes. However, Peter is wearing glasses. His eyes could not have possibly been poked unless his glasses, for some reason, did not have lenses in them.

Correction: In another episode Stewie breaks Meg's glasses and Peter tells her that "Nobdy needs glasses". Meg says "But YOU wear glasses" and Peter replies "That's just to fool the man from the draft board..." So maybe his glasses DON'T have lenses in - it's something so stupid and pointless that it fits Peter's character perfectly.

Ready, Willing, and Disabled - S3-E15

Corrected entry: The foam disappears from Joe's beer even though he doesn't drink from it.

xx:xx:xx

Piemanmoo

Correction: Much like in soda, foam will naturally dissipate from beer if it sits untouched, particularly in light beers.

The Kiss Seen Around the World - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Peter pretends to play the keyboard in the toy store, a man takes exception to it. When the Griffins are back in the parking lot, the man has spray painted the word "Phony" on their station wagon. The man just met Peter two minutes earlier, how would he know which vehicle to spray paint?

xx:xx:xx

Reservoir Dog

Correction: If you watch the very first episode (I never met the dead man) you can see the phony guy, working on a new toy at the toy factory, where Peter also works. So they probably know each other from work.

Peter Griffin: Husband, Father...Brother? - S3-E14

Corrected entry: The end credits for this episode feature Peter rapping the lyrics to the theme tune.

Kara

Correction: Kind of obvious - not really trivia.

Screwed The Pooch - S3-E13

Corrected entry: Peter and Carter Pewterschmidt, Lois's father, are in a game of Texas hold 'em poker with Michal Eisner, Bill Gates and Ted Turner. After some betting, Carter shows his hand, as does Ted. The problem is that anyone who has ever seen Texas hold 'em knows that they are not playing correctly. Each player has two cards to themselves and five community cards. It might be minor, but why mention a specific game such as hold 'em then not follow the basic rules of the game?

Correction: Texas Hold 'em was the first hand Peter dealt but the hand Carter and Ted are playing is much later in the night, it ends up being the last hand. They may have switched to five card draw to keep things interesting.

A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas - S3-E16

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the episode, Chris gives Stewie a candy cane, which Stewie immediately begins sharpening with a knife, with the intent to stab Lois with it. But if Stewie had a knife the entire time, why didn't he just stab Lois with that?

Correction: Because stabbing someone with a candy cane at Christmas had more poetic flare.

Xofer

And the Wiener is... - S3-E5

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, Peter and Chris walk off and leave their guns behind.

Correction: This could very well be symbolic - Peter leaves his rifle behind because he's gotten over the insecurity that drove him to it in the first place, and Chris leaves his behind because he never needed it. Also, remember that we're talking about the two dumbest main characters in the series.

Death Lives - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In a flashback scene with Quagmire urging Peter to get some shore leave, Quagmire is actually seen naked from the waist down, but he has no 'equipment' of any kind. He's genderless.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Actually, his left leg is slightly ahead of his right, which is just enough (by cartoon standards) to censor out naughty bits.

Season 3 generally

Corrected entry: Chris looses his trademark earring in this series, except in the title scene and in photos or anything that has been in previous series.

Correction: This is not true. In the episode Lethal Weapons(On Disc 1 of the Season 3 DVD Set), as the family is in the car on the way to church, Chris' earring is visible.

The Thin White Line (1) - S3-E1

Corrected entry: Joe's legs are supposed to be paralyzed due to an accident. However, when he and Brian are fighting the midgets in the Sunday School for drug trafficking, he manages to kick one of them.

Correction: He actually spins the wheelchair around, and his leg swings out, kicking the midget.

Emission Impossible - S3-E11

Corrected entry: If Stewie was mutated because Lois smoked pot when she was pregnant with him, then why was Stewie's potential brother as smart as him?

Piemanmoo

Correction: You can't be sure that Lois actually smoked pot while pregnant with Stewie. She says it during a dream sequence, this doesn't mean it actually happened.

Mistakes

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.
