Brian's Got a Brand New Bag - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: When Stewie goes down the stairs in his bed, when he hits the front door, the door opens outwards outside. It always opens towards the inside. Plus in this episode, the door is brown when he rolls outside. Next scene and the other times in the show it's a red door.

Big Man on Hippocampus - S8-E10

Factual error: Peter loses the last round on Family Feud. They got 199 points but needed 200 points to win $5000. Since they lost, they should've got $5 for every point which is $995. But they got nothing.

Quagmire's Baby - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: Peter is sitting on the couch talking on the radio. You see the phone sitting on a table beside the couch. But when Peter picks up the phone to call Quagmire, the phone is right beside him, without him ever moving it from the table.

Hannah Banana - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: Chris puts a video recorder in his room to try to capture the angry monkey in his closet to show Peter and Lois. He views the tape the next day and sees Peter and Quagmire enter his room. Quagmire punches Chris in the eye and bruises, it but when we see Chris the very next day, there's no black eye.

Partial Terms of Endearment - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Lois is shown to have dated Naomi during college. But in the episode "Meet The Quagmires", it was established that Lois and Peter were already dating when Lois was eighteen. She accepted Peter's marriage proposal at that age. She would have been engaged and possibly married during college, not dating other people.

Lois: Hello?
Peter: I can't take the trash out today, I'm working late at the office.
Lois: The caller ID says you're calling from the kitchen. In fact I can see you.
Peter: [Edging sideways.] OK, can you see me now?
Lois: No.
Peter: Now I am at the office.

Brian Sings & Swings - S4-E19

Question: In this episode Meg pretends to be a lesbian, when she calls herself a 'mega lesbian' it shows four other 'mega lesbians' singing something on deep voices. What song are they singing? Is it a real song?

Chosen answer: It's a real song called "Elvira". Originally by Dallas Fraizer in '66, however, this version seems to be the Oak Ridge Boys cover version. However, the mega lesbians skip the verse and just sing the chorus after the opening line.
