976-SHOE - S4-E8

Factual error: The sheriff does not come to your house and take your credit cards just because they are maxed out. The only time they would do that is if you stole someone else's card and were using it.

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.)

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)

Buck Saves the Day - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Al takes the kids camping. When he leaves the house, his shirt is light blue. When he comes out from the bushes in the woods, it's dark blue with red stripes.

Tooth or Consequences - S4-E4

Plot hole: Al can't eat because his mouth is numb. So they go ahead and eat. Al can eat after the novocaine wears off and Peg can put leftovers in the fridge. They all act like Al can't eat for days and there won't be any food left.

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.

Hot off the Grill - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kelly is at the grill, right after being called a "dullard" by Bud, Kelly grabs Bud's wrist with her left hand. As we pan out on the exact same scene, her hand is nowhere near his wrist.

Rock and Roll Girl - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: When Kelly blows up the car near the end, when they show the car before it explodes, you see someone walking on the right side behind the car. Half a second later the car explodes and now someone is walking by the building on the left side of the screen. There wasn't anyone there before.

Peggy Turns 300 - S4-E19

Plot hole: In this episode Al is about to break Puggy Weaver's record. Peg decides to bowl and scores a perfect score of 300. Problem is Peg is a horrible bowler, as seen in season 2 episode 9. She never bowls with Al or even enjoys bowling, so this episode really makes no sense.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This is not a plot hole, but a plot point. Yes, Peg is a horrible bowler, but it's typical Al Bundy luck that his wife would be able to put together a perfect game no matter how unlikely.

So this one and only episode she scores a perfect game? Highly unlikely. Oh and she's wearing a long evening dress too which would make it difficult to bowl. So this episode makes no sense.

Amy Emerick Tice

It is a comedy, so having all those "strikes" against her, she still managed to bowl a perfect game - leaving Al hopeless and hapless.

KeyZOid

It makes perfect sense. In the world of the show, the universe is out to screw Al over. The worst that can possibly happen to him will happen no matter how unlikely.

Hot off the Grill - S4-E1

Factual error: Al uses ashes to cook food on the grill. You can't just throw ashes in a grill and light them! They wouldn't light at all. That's like trying to light cigarette ashes and expecting them to burn hot enough to cook food.

Rock and Roll Girl - S4-E15

Deliberate mistake: When the family is trying to get money from Al at the start of the episode, he throws it on the ground making the rest of the family to dive on it and you can see Bud get it, then throw the bunch of money in the middle of Kelly, Peg and Bud so they can all get to it instead of taking it all. (00:02:10)

He Ain't Much, But He's Mine - S4-E5

Plot hole: Marcy gets her hair done like Pegs. Everyone makes fun of her saying she looks ridiculous. All she has to do is wash it! Its obviously held up with hairspray but Marcy acts like there's nothing she can do about it.

Peg: Hi honey. Did you miss me?
Al: With every bullet so far.
