Here Comes the Brood - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In the dining room, CC is wearing a scarf over her head as part of her "safari" outfit. When the shot shifts to a close-up of her looking horrified at the thought of taking the kids to the Zoo on her own, the scarf is suddenly around her neck.

The Whine Cellar - S2-E10

Other mistake: When Sylvia is outside the Sheffield mansion she says "I wonder if my daughter Fran is at home? I will see if she is" the doorbell rings as soon as she finishes that line, but you can see both her hands are visible. She can't have rung the doorbell.

Pinske Business - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When CC and Maxwell are hiding in CC's closet, the coat CC is hiding behind changes between shots. Some shots she is hiding behind Charles Haste's grey coat and other shots Fran's gold one.

Maggie the Model - S1-E13

The Producers (1) - S6-E16

Other mistake: Pretending to be Max's assistant, Fran dials a number for Bernadette Peters. The conversation is on speaker phone. The assistant says "one moment please." Niles and Fran continue talking and Maxwell comes in. Fran and Niles sheepishly hurry out of the room. Notice how, this whole time, Fran never touched the phone again to turn the phone off. So Max would hear Bernadette Peters and actually figure out Niles and Fran's plan before the episode's even halfway over.

Show generally

Other mistake: In some episodes, there is a small room between the kitchen and dining room (the "Butler's Pantry"), but in other episodes the same door leads directly into the dining room, and in still others it leads into a passage.

Continuity mistake: While Fran and Maxwell are changing the baby in the kitchen, the jar of baby food moves from next to the baby's head to next to his feet between shots.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: None of the Sheffield children are aged properly over the course of the series. It's established that Grace is 6 years old in season 1, but two years later in season 3 she's 10. Maggie is 18 at the end of season 5 but turns 21 years old in early season 6. And finally, Brighton is in seventh grade in season 2 and somehow is graduating high school at the end of season 6 (when he should be only a junior, and nothing about Brighton's character would suggest he's capable of skipping a grade).

The Gym Teacher - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: In the first office scene, when Fran picks up Allan Beck's resume and pages through it she is holding the pages in the middle.

The Nuchslep - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When the Chinese food is delivered, Fran's hair is very flat and the curls are loose. In the next scene, she goes to talk to Maxwell and her hair is noticeably curlier.

The Nuchslep - S1-E4

Other mistake: About 2/3 into the show, Fran carries a box of cookies into Maggie's bedroom. The box's name brand is covered over but Fran says she brought the Mallowmars. However when they show an actual cookie they are eating, you can see it's a Snackwell Devil's Food Cake cookie, not a Mallowmar.
