You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: When Jefferson and Marcy are getting ready to take off during the supermarket race, Al sprays the floor with oil causing them to slip. Being that it is fresh oil, their clothes should have oil stains. But in the next scene, Jefferson and Marcy are perfectly clean.

A Taxing Problem - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: A lady agrees to buy some of Peg's red hair. It shows the lady with two baggies with red hair in them, but at the end of the episode we see that they used Buck's hair, which is far from being red in color, or anything like human hair.
