Whistle While Your Wife Works - S5-E5

Other mistake: When the guard is turning the vault handle, the handle doesn't move, but the guard's arms do.

Barely Legal - S5-E8

Audio problem: Just after Peter graduates from the Police Academy, he goes home to Lois and draws his gun in the kitchen, which gets Lois very excited. Every time Peter fires his revolver, you'll hear a soft, but distinctive clink briefly after each shot. This clink comes from shell casings hitting the floor, which revolvers make impossible. Revolvers are designed to eject expended shell casings only while its user is reloading, not after each shot is fired. Only semiautomatic firearms immediately eject expended cartridges immediately after having been fired. Unless I'm mistaken, the entire gunshot sound originally came from a 9mm semiautomatic pistol.

Hell Comes to Quahog - S5-E3

Character mistake: In "The Drunken Clam", while Quagmire and Joe are playing table tennis, a poster on the wall incorrectly spells "Pawtucket Patriot ale" as "Pawtucket Patrtot ale."
