Go Get Mommy's Bra - S2-E4

Go Get Mommy's Bra - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: During this whole episode, Jake calls his mother's boyfriend Greg. But in the 4th season when Judith is marrying the guy, he is called Herb. We know that it is not two different people because they both have the last name Melneck, and they are both Jake's pediatrician.

Suggested correction: Greg was the guy with the boat. I don't think they ever said his last name. Herb is the Dr. Two different people at two different times in the show.

The mistake is correct. The character of Judith's then boyfriend, and then eventual husband and then ex-husband, was named Greg Melnick (played by Ryan Stiles) in season 2. He actually first appeared in s02e02, "Enjoy Those Garlic Balls." Later, when he became a reoccurring character, his name was changed in the show to Herb. Although one could argue Greg was his middle name the whole time. There was another character named Greg in season 4.

Bishop73

This is correct. Although it's never referenced once his name has changed to Herb, about having a boat.

Can You Eat Human Flesh With Wooden Teeth? - S2-E16
