And the Wiener is... - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Just before Peter enters the tunnel in his new car, the white line in the middle of the road is blotchy and not continuous. When the shot changes to Peter's POV, the line has completely disappeared. The next shot which shows the car side on, there is now a straight white line on the road.

Continuity mistake: When the flag team first walks out to the field, they are all in a straight line. Next time they are in two seperate lines with Meg at the head. Also, the girl with the head brace moves to the front when she is seen in the back. There is not enough time for them to move into the lines.
