Blind Ambition - S4-E3

Corrected entry: The sheet of toilet paper change numbers when Lois tears them off to put on the seat (right before she sees Quagmire peeping on her). She tears off three sheets, but they change to four when she puts them on the seat. (This happens on both sides of the seat).

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Louis tears off 3 sheets and puts them along the back. All other sheets she tears are of 4.

North by North Quahog - S4-E1

Corrected entry: During this episode, Chris still goes to Buddy Cianci Jr. High, but the teacher who catches him with the vodka was seen in the episode "Let's Go to the Hop" as a teacher from Meg's school, James Woods High.


Correction: There are several possible explanations to this, the most likely one that the teacher had simply switched schools. Maybe he got a new job, or maybe he was a substitute who filled different positions at different times.


The Courtship of Stewie's Father - S4-E16

Corrected entry: When Peter is driving Stewie to Disneyland, the scenery flashing past the windows is just the same few trees over and over. (00:13:25)


Correction: This is a very common technique used in animation to save the animators time and effort. It can't really be classified as a mistake.

Grumpy Scot

Blind Ambition - S4-E3

Corrected entry: When Peter enters Chris' room and accidentally thinks Chris is Lois, he quickly stands up and tries to change the mood by asking Chris questions, one of which is, "Did you do your homework today?" Chris nods his head yes, and Peter comprehends, despite the fact that he is blind.

Correction: He doesn't comprehend. He just gives a response to whatever answer Chris would have given, since he can assume that Chris would've given him an answer. Peter is just saying anything to get out the room, and the timing of Peter's response to Chris' nod can be explained by the fact that Peter knows the pace of a conversation.

Jungle Love - S4-E13

Corrected entry: Stewie goes to the airport after seeing a bad film; he puts his shoes through the tray and walks through the detector. He keeps walking and doesn't pick up his shoes but moments later on the plane, they are back on.

Correction: It's not moments later; you don't board the plane immediately after going through the security checkpoint. Stewie obviously realized that he was missing his shoes and went back to get them, in the time that passed while he was waiting to board the plane.


Model Misbehavior - S4-E10

Corrected entry: In this episode, Lois is a model. Throughout the whole series, she has short hair but in this one, she has it up in a ponytail. Her hair isn't long enough for the hairstyle shown at the party.


Correction: She could have been wearing hair extensions.


Perfect Castaway - S4-E12

Corrected entry: In the scene where Brian and Lois are talking in the bedroom, you can see that they both sleep in two separate beds. However, in a different scene when Lois is riding on top of Peter in the bedroom, you can see there is only one double bed inside the room.

Correction: While married, Lois and Brian sleep in separate beds, which were specifically acquired for the purpose. When Lois is married to Peter, they share a bed. There's no telling how much time passes between shots and it's not that hard to move some furniture around.

PTV - S4-E14

Corrected entry: When Peter has a flashback to his sixteenth birthday party there are only 12 or 13 candles on the cake. (00:16:20)

Amy Dobbins

Correction: How is that a mistake? There is no law or rule that the number of candles on a cake must match the age of the birthday reciepent.

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.
