Underage Peter - S14-E14

Plot hole: They're in the Clam complaining that they can't drink when they make the revelation that Brian can because he's technically 56. But Quagmire should be able to drink, as in a much earlier episode, he's revealed to be over 60.

Suggested correction: Quagmire considers the rest of them to be his best friends. He isn't drinking because they can't drink. He is complaining because since his friends can't drink - he won't drink, so he is still pissed.

It's still a plot hole considering Quagmire's age. I think the writers messed up big time.

You make a good point, but it's awkward to be that one person who is drinking while surrounded by people who can't. So, I understand the correction that was submitted above. Because his friends are not drinking, he now feels that he can't.

It's 100% a mistake. Quagmire simply would buy them alcohol the same way Brian did when they realized he could.

Suggested correction: I watched this part of the episode twice and no trees are missing in the window behind Mr. Weed after the close-up on Peter. Actually, Mr. Weed's head is covering part of the window where you can't see the trees on the right when he's lying on the table, but when he gets up you can see all the trees.

Suggested correction: I watched the hardware store scene carefully but I didn't see any difference on the format of the antenna on Chris' head. It's always stay curled in the whole scene.

Suggested correction: It's actually his finger, not his dog tag.

In which case, his tag is missing.

I agree, it's not his thumb because in the next shot of him in the same position, his tag is now there (or colored correctly) and his thumb isn't seen.

It looks like his thumb.

Suggested correction: Please tell me that you are not a doctor! The two types of herpes viruses, HSV1 and HSV2 can be transmitted in blood as well as saliva. Such transmission is very rare as the virus deactivates rapidly in stored blood, but it is incorrect to say that it cannot happen.

The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire - S4-E5

Plot hole: Brian and Peter see Loretta and Quagmire having sex yet, they aren't sure who she's having an affair with. There's no way they couldn't have noticed it was Quagmire - the couch was facing the front door! And obviously Quagmire was on top of Loretta considering the fact that he leans up, says something, then she tells him to get back down here and finish.

Suggested correction: It is possible that depending on their position when they walk in the that Quagmire's face could have been hidden from view. And it's not until after Brian and Peter have left that Quagmire sits up to ask what was that, indicating he hadn't seen Peter and Brian.

Suggested correction: Usually this would be right, but it's evident by their positioning that Peter is actually driving his car right in the middle of the road on the dotted line and not staying in one lane. This is why the truck passes on the left to get in front and then the car on the right, both also getting centered on the dotted line.

Suggested correction: The gun doesn't vanish. It's still visible.

The Juice Is Loose - S7-E9

Factual error: Joe's plan to trick OJ into confessing to the 1994 murders is moot since, having been acquitted, the double jeopardy provision would prevent him from being tried for the same crime twice, and as a cop, Joe would know that.

Suggested correction: The plan to get OJ to confess had nothing to do with getting the confession, so he could be arrested or tried again. And at this point, the civil trial already found OJ "responsible" for the murders. Since OJ has always maintained his innocence, getting a confession on tape would just be big news.

Blue Harvest - S6-E1

Trivia: When an explosion on the Death Star sends an Imperial stormtrooper flying, the stormtrooper lets out a Wilhelm scream.

Suggested correction: I'd say given that all Star Wars movies use the scream, it would be unusual for it not to appear.

Saving Private Brian - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: All the army men including Brian and Stewie have USA symbols on their arms, but when Stewie and Brian talk to one of them, after they shoot each other in the foot, the USA symbol on the man's sleeve is orange lines and a arrow.

Suggested correction: That's his rank. Hardly a mistake.

Baby Not On Board - S7-E4

Plot hole: Stewie gets out of the car seat and goes back to bed, leaving the blanket at the bottom of the seat. When they get to New York, Lois goes to get him out and realises he's gone. But when they started the trip the blanket was covering the entire seat to make it look like Stewie was still in it. So who ever "covered" him up knew he wasn't in the seat before they set off.

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22

Peter Griffin: You better watch who you're calling a child Lois. Because if I'm a child then you know what that makes you? A paedophile, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand here and be lectured by a pervert.

Grumpy Old Man - S10-E9

Trivia: One of the cutaway gags is about someone who survived 9/11 because he was late for work watching late night football. Seth MacFarlane missed his flight, which would have been one of the flights to crash into the World Trade Center, because his agent had given him the incorrect departure time. The plane was scheduled to depart at 7:45 AM and his agent had told him it was departing at 8:15 AM. By the time Seth arrived the boarding had been closed and he was told he would have to catch a later flight.

Business Guy - S8-E9

Question: In the episode, Peter threatens to fire Lois, and she responds with "you wouldn't" and Peter then replies with "Oh really, does the name Lacey Chabert mean anything to you?" which in turn makes Lois go wide eyed and reply with "OK, I'll behave" and Peter then goes on to add "Yes you will" Can anyone explain this joke if it is a joke to comprehend?

Answer: Lacey Chabert was the actress who originally voiced Meg in early episodes. She left of her own accord due to being in school and other acting work; Seth MacFarlane has stated there was no tension with her leaving, but it makes for a handy joke for the show.
