Continuity mistake: The conversation Tim and the others have at the hardware store becomes a lot different when Jill sees the (supposedly) same conversation on videotape. First of all, Tim's remark the "Jill's speech was so boring" has become "Jill's speech was so DULL". Secondly, Eddie's entire tale on how his wife wanted to change the fabric in the sun room is missing from the tape. And third, when Tim is talking about Jill's psychology studies, the expression "these terms" has become "these USELESS terms".
Continuity mistake: When Jill is standing up to the other woman at Mark's karate class, she asks her "Will you stop calling my son 'Stick Boy'?" As the other woman replies "Then feed him something", her hands are on her hips, but when the angle changes, she has her right hand on her chest, with no time to move her hands between shots.
Continuity mistake: After Tim smashes Al's display cabinet, it cuts to Tim, then back to the workbench and the wrecked cabinet. The pieces of china and the pieces of wood on the bench differ in the two shots. In the first shot, there are two whole teacups, one whole plate and a bit of a shelf on the bench (the shelf is on the right side of the screen), in the second shot we see a broken tea cup, one broken and one whole plate, and the piece of shelf has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Jill is talking to Ron Dol and is asking Tim to call Al and help with the Satellite Dish Tim is tightening gloves on both hands. Then goes back to Jill, then in the next shot it shows Tim grabbing a cinnamon roll with one of the gloves in the other hand.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of episode 4.10, "Ye Olde Shoppe Teacher", Tim's lopsided toolbox that he made turns 180 degrees as Jill pushes it away. As Jill and Tim are talking, it turns back. Then it turns 180 degrees again just before Tim briefly leaves the room.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Jill went to talk with Irene who was really worried and almost crying in the bride's room Jill made a joke. When the camera showed the mirror behind Jill, you could see that Irene was madly laughing. When the camera showed Irene again, she was almost crying.
Factual error: Tim accidentally fires an M2 .50 machine gun while on a tank. Ricochets are shown sparking all over other tanks while people dive for cover. A) Bullets don't spark when they ricochet, and B) the M2 had a blank firing adapter installed; it couldn't have been firing bullets.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode, when Karen takes a Diet Coke from the refrigerator, she starts pouring it into a glass, and fills the glass halfway up. Cut to Jill for a second, then back to Karen, who is still pouring, but the glass is now only about a quarter full.
Continuity mistake: In the opening segment, as Heidi hands Tim his hot-air gun, he takes it with both hands, then lets go with his left so he's only holding the gun in his right hand. The angle changes, and Tim is once again holding the gun with both hands, before he once again removes his left hand.
Continuity mistake: When Tim stumbles back from the force of the power compactor, he steps in the wet cement behind him. When Al tries to catch his mother's pet turtle before it lands in the wet cement, the spot in the cement where Tim stepped, has refilled itself.
Other mistake: When Randy and Brad complete the magic trick and open up the trunk they are pointing it towards the audience for us to see. But Jill reacts as if she is seeing it too, which, based on where she is sitting and where the trunk is open would be impossible. She would have had to get up and go look or have the trunk turned 90° to make it work. Neither happens.

Plot hole: Tim has the mike in his hand and steps repeatedly forwards to talk to Jill, the cord being long enough to allow him to do so. However once Jill leaves and he wants to go after her the mike knocks over the jar of mosquitoes. Up until then, there was no indication that the mike had been changed or moved but he never at the risk of knocking over the jar until then.

Revealing mistake: When Randy is thrown across the yard by Jason and his friend, you can tell that he is actually just launching himself as you can hear him take four running steps after Brad says "Hey Wilson, how's it going?", followed by Randy appearing onscreen and then jumping off the porch. You can also see Randy's lone shadow running towards the spot where he jumps from while he himself is offscreen. Next you can tell he lands on a crash mat because the leaves on the ground drag behind him as he is sliding across the grass. Lastly, after he says "I'm going to get you for this Brad!", you can see him walking towards the gazebo where Jason and his friend are sitting and just before the shot changes Jason extends his left hand for Randy to give him five.
