Continuity mistake: When Brian and Stewie arrive in Leonardo's atelier we know that they are in Florence for two reasons: because of history and because we see Palazzo Vecchio (which is in Piazza della Signoria, in Florence) outside the window. Then when Stewie and Bertram are fighting with Leonardo's flying machine the city of Florence is wrongly represented as if it was Venice, with the see, the lagoon and the canals.
Continuity mistake: When the guests walk through the secret passage, the order of the guests change between shots.

Then when they reach the secret room, the order is Peter, then Chris, then Carl, then Lois, then Bonnie, then Quagmire, then Derek, then Jillian.
Continuity mistake: Peter knocks out Joe during the search in the hallway.

Continuity mistake: When Mayor West panics, Peter shakes him and he falls against a shelf. The plate on the end of the shelf falls off and smashes on the floor. But when Brian points out the gun is there, it is now the middle plate that fell off and the plate on the end of the shelf is intact.

Such as when Muriel is killed Diane appears with everyone else, but in the flashback she appeared moments later. Second, when everyone appears in front of Derek's dead body there are two differences, Tom doesn't say "Dear God!" in the flashback and Diane appears 1 second later in the flashback. Third, Stephanie doesn't say "Did the cork hit me?" when she is shot in the flashback. Fourth, Priscilla isn't wearing a scarf in the flashback even though when it actually happened she was wearing a scarf. Fifth, when Derek says he is going up to the roof he is standing next to Peter and Lois, in the flashback he standing next to Lois and Jillian. Sixth, when Derek leaves the dining room to go to the balcony, no-one is standing next to the door, but in the flashback Diane and Doctor Hartman are standing right next too the door. Seven, when Muriel is killed she is in the middle of a hallway. But in the flashback, she is killed outside Tom Tucker's room.

Joe's window is now fully open. Trouble is, Joe seems to be completely surprised by Peter standing there which implies he never saw Peter even after stopping. His window has mysteriously opened immediately.
Continuity mistake: When Peter returns home from being hyped up on Red Bull, he has numerous cans in his arms. When he sees Stewie he immediately drops the cans on the floor but when the camera pulls back as he sits down with Stewie in his lap, the cans of Red Bull are nowhere to be seen.

As they run out the room, the order of the guests are: Peter, Diane, Chris, Lois, Carl, Doctor Hartman, Meg, Jillian, Brian, Quagmire, Mort, Derek, Seamus and Mayor West is way at the back. Yet as they run through the passage the order is: Peter, Lois, Tom, Quagmire, Diane, Chris, etc. But as they come out of the passage, the order is: Peter, Lois, Tom, Diane, Chris, Bonnie, Meg, Quagmire, Carl, Mayor West, Doctor Hartman, Mort, Seamus and Jillian is way at the back and not Mayor West since he was last seen exiting the secret room. Also Derek nor Consuela were seen in the room just as they ran out, yet when they magically appear when they are doing the groups.
Continuity mistake: When James returns to the lounge to find everyone there, they all accuse him of killing Stephanie, so they walk over to the dining room with James at the front followed by Tom and Priscilla behind him and Joe and Doctor Hartman behind them. But when they enter the dining room, Tom and Priscilla are no where to be seen and it is now Joe who is behind him. Also in that same scene, several other characters change position. The people who are in the room are Peter, Chris, Brian, Quagmire, Joe, Bonnie, Diane, Doctor Hartman and Seamus and the rest of the guests aren't seen. So when they enter, Diane and Chris are at the back followed by Seamus, Quagmire and Bonnie in front of them, followed by Doctor Hartman, Peter and Joe at the front. There is then a shot of the chair completely empty. Yet in the next shot, Brian has suddenly appeared next to Joe out of nowhere. Then in the following shot, Diane is still at the back but now more closer to Bonnie and both Bonnie and Quagmire have changed positions and Seamus is now at the back and Chris is suddenly next to Quagmire at the edge of the right hand side of the screen and Peter is now behind Joe. Then the shot cuts to James and the shot cuts back to guests. But now Peter has appeared next to Doctor Hartman again and now in front of Joe and not behind him. Also Diane is now no longer at the back but in the middle towards the left of screen and no where Bonnie and Seamus is now partially in front Bonnie. Then when the shot cuts to James saying he is a member of MENSA and a huge hit with the ladies, there is no sign of Brian standing next to Joe. Then in the shot before the lights go out, Diane is now at least ten inches behind Bonnie and Lois has appeared behind Seamus out of nowhere. Then by the time the lights go back on again, Lois is now in front of Joe and all the other guests have appeared in the dining room. Then when Seamus says "Look", there's no one in front of him even though loads of other people were there in front of him before the lights went out. Then the shot zooms out and we can see in the shot are Doctor Hartman, Priscilla, Joe, Brian, Carl, Mort and Tom. Then when Joe says "Nobody touch the knife", it's now Seamus, Bonnie, Quagmire, Lois and Derek in the shot. Then when we see Peter and Chris in the shot, the shot zooms were Joe appears we can see Quagmire, Lois and Bonnie behind Peter even though they were way in front of them a couple of seconds ago. No way could they have all moved that fast, not with all the other people in the way.
