Let's Go To The Videotape - S4-E7

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".

To Build Or Not To Build - S2-E23

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.

Let Them Eat Cake - S5-E6

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.
