Married... with Children

The Chicago Wine Party - S7-E7

New this week Character mistake: Throughout the entire episode, they talk about the beer tax being 2 cents. At the very end when Terry is doing her on air broadcast, she calls the tax a "2%" tax. There is a big difference.

Wabbit Season - S5-E8

Married ... with Who - S5-E12

New this month Visible crew/equipment: Right after Jefferson walks out after saying what he was in jail for, when they are showing Bud and Al, you see a large head shadow go across Bud's leg from left to right.

Shoeway to Heaven - S9-E1

Plot hole: When Dominique is on TV, she says she got the shoes from Al's store. Than the Amish guy comes out to confirm she broke her leg from the shoe he made. Al says yes. She got the shoes way before Al knew he had no more shoes and before they even hired the Amish guy. How can she break her leg from his shoe if he wasn't hired and making them yet?

MasterOfAll

You Better Watch Out - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: When the mall Santa lands in the Bundys' back yard, everybody looks toward the back, and when Al looks forward, he cracks a smile although he's upset about the matter. Ed O'Neil admitted he couldn't contain his laughter.

Poppy's By the Tree (2) - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When Al is blocking the killer's axe with his suitcase and they struggle for it, it is obvious that the axe is made of rubber, as the handle keeps bending.

Twotall

The Bald and the Beautiful - S3-E7

Other mistake: At the end of this episode, there is a typo in the credits: "Directed by" is written twice. (00:22:30)

Can't Dance, Don't Ask Me (aka Kelly's Dance) - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: During Kelly's dance, a nerdy girl grabs Bud and starts kissing him, but in the next shot, Bud is standing alone in the background. (00:20:30)

You Gotta Know When to Fold 'Em (2) - S4-E17

Plot hole: Al hasn't got enough cash to pay for a pizza and Peggy overmaxes his credit cards. But somehow he manages to buy three flight tickets for Chicago-Las Vegas. Where'd the money come from? Also, when his card is declined, he calls the pizza shop back (they call him "no tip" Bundy), and somehow they know where Peggy maxed out the credit card. (00:05:15)

Who'll Stop the Rain - S4-E13

Visible crew/equipment: After Al fixes the roof and Peg reminds him to fix the TV antenna, when Al says he can do it, a shadow can be seen moving across the blue bucket on the table. (Probably a crew member or equipment.)

You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Revealing mistake: When Jefferson starts to shove the 'regulation Foodies cart,' it's very obvious that the actor makes the shaking movements of the cart by himself. (00:08:05)

Route 666 (2) - S5-E24

Plot hole: After Al steps out of the coyote doody he goes to Bud and puts an arm around him. Then they walk together towards the same spot - without looking down. (00:03:35)

I Can't Believe It's Butter - S10-E13

Revealing mistake: When Griff drinks the gravy right before calling "Butter", his glass is empty.

The Agony of Defeet - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: When Kelly enjoys her triumph at the middle of the stairs you can see a shadow on the wall right from her - obviously Al stands behind the wall waiting for his cue. (00:19:00)

Sue Casa, His Casa - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: When the bailiff pours rum into the judge's jar, it's obvious that there's nothing coming out of the flask. (00:13:05 - 00:14:10)

Banking on Marcy - S8-E5

Other mistake: Peg reads from a headline saying "[Marcy] announces NBC fall schedule, people still disappointed." But the text below it reads "State officials..." showing the text doesn't belong with that headline. Also when you see each headline the article is the same for each one.

Rock of Ages - S7-E9

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Al has taken on the persona of Axel Bundy, a rock star, so he can fly first class with older rock stars. But before they start a jam in the first class lounge pre-flight, one of them calls him AL when he's prodding Al to join the group when all they knew him by was the name Axel.

You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Plot hole: The supermarket director orders the photographer to take a photo of Al's special shopping cart. Then he turns around a little towards the cart. When the camera flashes, his right shoulder has to be in the whole left side of that picture. (00:07:50)

And Baby Makes Money - S5-E11

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the Last Will reading we see that there's no-one sitting left to the female notary. But in the close-ups there is a small round silver-shining object at the right edge of the picture - left from her. Must be some equipment. (00:04:20)

The Mystery of Skull Island - S6-E14

Al Bundy: "I Care", by Al Bundy. When hooters jiggle around and I find nickels on the ground, I care. When a Mustang engine purrs and the bathroom is not hers, I care. When the pitchers on the mound and the wife is underground, I care. But when I've been playing this for days, I will kill anyone who stays, I SWEAR!
