Chicago Hope - S5-E9

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning episode 5.9, "Chicago Hope", the camera and several studio lights reflect on the glass door behind Tim as he sits at the dining room table.

Shopping Around - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: When Tim and Jill are out to dinner and Tim spots Mr. Leonard, he gets up and lays his napkin down flat on the table. When he returns to the table the napkin is bunched up in a ball.

Doctor In The House - S5-E10

Revealing mistake: At the beginning during the Binford commercial, Tim falls off the ladder that they just set up and it's possible to see it's connected to the wall (so it will flip, but not fall over).

Room Without A View - S5-E8

Deliberate mistake: When Jill turns off the light to Randy's room, she uses the same switch that Al used to activate the reverse laundry chute.

Tanks For The Memories - S5-E15

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.

Tanks For The Memories - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: The boys had different haircuts in the previous episode. Randy had just gotten a haircut, and in this episode, the kids are younger and have their longer hair right back. (00:05:50)

Advise And Repent - S5-E5

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. (00:15:25)

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.
