Married... with Children

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.

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)

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)

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)

You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Revealing mistake: When Al 'bowls' Jefferson out of the way you can see the stuntman jump high and fall back into some kind of holding wire. It's an annoyingly bad stunt. (00:19:45)

Desperately Seeking Miss October - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Al and his Dad (both played by Ed O'Neill) are sitting on the couch side by side watch the lines of the cushion in the middle. Every time one of them moves you can see where the two separate shots are overlaid. (00:14:15)

You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Revealing mistake: When Marcy is stacking the cartons of eggs in her arms, you can plainly see that they are empty cartons.

Brad Hruza

Poppy's By the Tree (1) - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When Al, Peg, and the kids get to their room, notice the "hole" in the blanket on the bed. It's there the entire episode so at the end, the killer can shove the machete up through it.

He Thought He Could - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, Peg is making popcorn on the stove. It's making a sizzling sound like she's really popping it but the burner isn't even on.

Eatin' Out - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: At the end of this episode, Bud supposedly has a lemon frozen to his mouth but he plainly is just biting down on it. Then Al uses his lighter to "unstick" it, but Bud just spits it out.

Dud Bowl II - S10-E10

Revealing mistake: When they blow up the scoreboard at first in slow motion, the entire scoreboard is blown up and destroyed. The next shot only a small portion at the top and middle is destroyed, not the entire thing.

Breaking up is Easy to Do (2) - S11-E15

Revealing mistake: When Al falls on the bed with the shoe and puts the hole in the water bed, the shoe doesn't hit the bed anywhere near where the water starts to shoot out from.

Every Bundy Has a Birthday - S7-E3

Revealing mistake: At the park when Al hits the rich man, he goes down like he was knocked out. Soon after, Seven punches the kid. In the background the rich man is actually sitting up on his side and he looks at Al and Seven, then as the camera pans towards him, he lies down on his side like he is passed out again.

England Show (1) - S6-E24

Revealing mistake: While they are jousting, there is no one at all next to the stage in the wide shots. Every time they show the stage up close, there are 40-50 people. It changes back and forth the whole scene.

twstr988

Sofa So Good - S8-E14

Revealing mistake: When Kelly is at the house of the crazy guy who made the couch, when they drink the cappuccino and he throws the cup, it's clear that the cups are just props as the drink stays in when it falls towards the camera.

Just Married ... With Children - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: When Al spins Peg on the wheel to win the bowling ball, in the long shots, you can plainly see its not really Peg on the wheel. It's a dummy.

Kelly Breaks Out - S9-E3

Revealing mistake: Kelly lost all her hair as a side effect from pimple potion. You can see the lines on her forehead that show she's wearing a flesh piece covering her hair to make her look bald. The color is lighter than her face. (00:18:42)

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?

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!
