No Chris Left Behind - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: When the family goes to Morning Wood Academy, the sign in the front says No Irish and Irish OK underneath that. The next time we see the sign, those words are replaced with the date the academy was founded.

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.

Mabon-Tail

Barely Legal - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: Every time Cleveland's tub slides out of the house, there's never any plumbing attached to it. It just sits on top of the floor so it slides out easily. In this episode its very easy to see.

Road to Rupert - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: As the helicopter is shown sliding down the hill, it is shown from several angles to have just a single rotor blade. However, one shot shows two rotors, one of which disappears halfway through the shot.

Guy

Boys Do Cry - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: At the Little Miss Texas pageant, just as Lois finishes saying "It's what you do when you're in Texas", she and Stewie walk past a judge and a little girl. In a close-up of Stewie, the judge and little girl have suddenly become a plant. (00:15:25)

Casual Person

No Chris Left Behind - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: Peter says "Oh crap" as soon as he realises Ernie the Giant Chicken is looking at him in the window. When the camera pans over to Ernie, he is standing an inch away from the glass. It then cuts to a wide angle where Ernie jumps through the window, and he has instantly moved back a few inches.

Casual Person

Boys Do Cry - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When Jake plays the piano the music on the sheet changes. Notice the big gap on the sheet which gets smaller. I know the sheet is changed, but the gap still changes.

Barely Legal - S5-E8

Connie: You know, Meg, there's no dogs allowed. So, you're going to have to leave. But Brian can stay.
Brian Griffin: You know, Connie, I think I have this theory about why you're such a bitch.
Connie: Excuse me?
Meg Griffin: Brian, let's just go.
Brian Griffin: No, no, no, no, no, no. Hang on a minute, Meg, hang on. You see, Connie, you're popular because you developed early and started giving handjobs when you were twelve. But now you can't stand to look in the mirror because all you see is a whore. So you pick on Meg to avoid the inevitable realization that once your body's used up by age nineteen, you're gonna be a worn out chalky skinned burlap sack that even your own stepdad won't want. How is that? Am I in the ballpark?
[Connie runs off crying].

Trivia: A Quahog is another name for a clam, thus all the jokes and places in town (like the drunken clam bar) the show makes reference about.

Answer: Mort is Jewish, and Walt Disney was said to be antisemitic. So it would make sense in a Disney universe all the inhabitants would share his supposed beliefs.
