Perfect Castaway - S4-E12

Factual error: In the very beginning of Perfect Castaway, when Peter is talking to his workers and telling them he's going to have to "put them down", he pulls out a shotgun and four shells. He puts two shells in each barrel, but then continues to shoot 5 times when they jump in the water. First of all the shotgun is a double-barreled, break action type shotgun, so Peter should only have been able to put two shells in it. Second of all, even if he could put two shells in each barrel, he would only be able to fire it four times.

Deliberate mistake: In season 4 episode 7, 'Brian the bachelor'. Cleveland is sitting in a chair in a waiting room and is getting really nervous. Peter tries to help him by tying him to a chair and when that doesn't work, he takes off all of their clothes. Peter ties Cleveland's hands to the arms of the chair and then takes Cleveland's clothes off. He couldn't have taken the shirt off while Cleveland's hands were tied to something without untying him or ripping the shirt, which he didn't do.
