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

Sue Casa, His Casa - S5-E3

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)

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)

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)

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.


A Man's Castle - S5-E15

Visible crew/equipment: When Peggy enters you can see the shadow of someone's head at the left edge (the kitchen). It can't be anyone of the actors. (00:12:05)

You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: The manager gives Jefferson a "wobbly" cart to use, but for the rest of the episode it's a normal, fast moving cart.


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.

Kelly Bounces Back - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: Kelly knocks the lampshade off the lamp. Next shot shows it put back on although no-one is around it.


Married ... with Who - S5-E12

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.


Weenie Tot Lovers & Other Strangers - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: When Al asks for the checkbook to write a check for Bud, Bud puts his right hand on Al's left shoulder. Next shot, Bud's hand is coming off Al's right shoulder.


One Down, Two to Go - S5-E10

Other mistake: Bud calls a late night sex hot line which is a 1 900 number yet he only pushes 6 digits on the phone.


Married ... with Who - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: Marcy's head piece falls off during the backyard wedding scene, then, in the next scene, after she hits Al with her flowers, it appears on her head again. (00:18:30)


Wabbit Season - S5-E8

Other mistake: Al is running the water down the rabbit hole. Bud says the ground isn't even wet and asks where the water is going. A few seconds later Marcy is walking through the yard squishing on the ground because it's flooded.


You Better Shop Around (1) - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When the store employee comes over to ask Al and Peg what they were doing, Peg throws a bag of chips in the shopping cart and says shopping. When Al asks Peg what the ingredients are, next shot the bag of chips are on Peg's lap.

The Unnatural - S5-E4

Factual error: The final scenes titled "Kankakee 1991" show desert scenery in the background; Kankakee, Illinois is in the Midwest US, which is almost entirely grassland and no desert.


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!
