From Method to Madness - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When we first see the sign outside the Quahog institute of performing arts, it has a cartoon take on the comedy and tragedy masks in the corners.

Later on, the black mask has the frown and the white mask has the big ears and smile and the 3rd time you see the sign it has changed back again.

To Live and Die in Dixie - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Peter and Brian are escaping from the locals in their car, they go over a ridge. They freeze in midair and a voice says "those Griffin boys..." and the screen goes black.
