Catch A Falling Star - May 21, 1979 - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: As Sam is preparing to go on stage as Don Quixote, after catching the lead actor, a quick cut to Dulcinea dancing is shown. It is supposed to be Sam's love interest and ex piano teacher Nicole as Dulcinea. However, you can see Nicole standing in the background, in the pink outfit she was wearing in scenes from the beginning of the episode.

Good Night, Dear Heart - November 9, 1957 - S2-E17

Factual error: At the end, Sam reads a poem from a Mark Twain book and says, "Twain wrote it when his daughter died." But the poem, famous because it was engraved on the daughter's headstone, isn't by Twain, but by poet Robert Richardson. Twain never claimed authorship, so Sam couldn't be reading it with Twain's byline from any of his books.

Disco Inferno - April 1, 1976 - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: In one play during the montage sequence of the championship game, the quarterback for the Jaguars (Sam) is number 15 - but he wears 12 throughout the rest of the show. This is Sam, because Al later tells him to quit, so he's been playing the whole game.

The shot switches to Sam down on his knees and it's at his face level (about Al's waist). Then the shot switches back to Al and the handset is again chest high.
