And I'm Joyce Kinney - S9-E9

Continuity mistake: After Joyce reveals the secret on the news it soon cuts to Joyce sitting in front of the mirror at Quahog 5, and in the mirror's reflection we see the door behind Joyce opens at the real Lois' right side (blocking the lightswitch), but in the next shot facing Lois the door opens the opposite way (not blocking the lightswitch).

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: While everyone is in the secret room Peter finds a blue book on the desk and picks it up to read. Peter's holding this book in his hands when he asks Consuela what happened, and just as Consuela tells him about her nephew, we see another blue book on the desk beside Peter. There should be only one blue book - the one in Peter's hands. (00:20:40)

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: The interior layout of the dining room is visible in many shots, specifically the wall and windows behind the arm chair at the head of the table. After Stephanie is murdered, when Mort shouts to run for their lives, the crowd exits the dining room and they turn right, then everyone runs for the double front doors, opposite the staircase. This means the windows behind the arm chair at the head of the table are at the back of the house, but later when they capture Tom behind that chair, the shot moves backwards through the window and it's now at the front of the house, beside the double front doors. (00:10:50 - 00:37:30)

Continuity mistake: When Muriel disappears after she's been accused, everybody rushes back up the secret passageway stairs to find her, and in the first shot facing the group there's a large green desk pad on the desk, but in the next shot that desk pad has vanished (and it reappears when they split into groups).

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: In numerous shots we see the interior layout of the dining room, with the four sets of two story windows behind the arm chair at the head of the table. After Tom is accused of being the murderer, when he's captured in the dining room they're all behind the arm chair as they crack a joke about Adrien Brody. The problem occurs as the shot pulls backwards through the window, which is an average bay window instead of the four sets of two story windows. (00:37:35)
