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)

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
