Halloween - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Robert grabs Scott's shirt, Scott hits the wall and it moves backwards about an inch showing that it's fake.


Denise's Friend - S2-E11

Visible crew/equipment: Look closely when Clair gets up after saying to the kids "I'm glad we had this chat", you can see a tip of a camera on the right.


Rudy Suits Up - S2-E7

Factual error: When Clair and Denise are watching the Bears vs. the Giants game, they comment on how cute player number 16 is. In 1985, nobody wore 16 for either the Bears or the Giants. Former Bears' placekicker Bob Thomas wore it from 1975 to 1984 until he retired. 16 wasn't worn again by the Bears until Tim Lashar, another kicker, wore it in 1987. Also, 16 had long since been retired by the Giants. It was last worn by Frank Gifford.


Denise's Decision - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: After Clair turns off the record, the folder on the table changes position.
