Bye Bye Birdie - S2-E18

Karate Or Not, Here I Come - S2-E19

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.

Bye Bye Birdie - S2-E18

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.

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.
