Restaurant Row - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Arthur is on the phone with PBS to complain about getting a "Civil War Series" box set, the actual set of tapes changes drastically. When it's on the table and when Carrie brings it over to the counter its a pretty large, has an American flag motif, and says "Civil War" across the top. When it cuts back to it sitting on the counter its a much smaller box with a plain design and says "The Great War" along the bottom. It's obviously a different set, not just the camera angle. (00:14:40)

Art House - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: Arthur and Doug are sitting with beers in the basement. Arthur doesn't open his beer, but the sound of a bottle opening can be heard and suddenly his beer has foam all the way up to the top of the bottle. Arthur stands up and the bottle is still unopened. It cuts to Doug, then back to Arthur with no beer at all. Again it cuts to Doug, then back to Arthur, and he is holding the unopened beer again. (00:18:30)

Two Thirty - S4-E24

Plot hole: In this episode Arthur scams Deacon and several other parents for phony piano lessons because he doesn't actually know how to play the piano. However, earlier in the series (Art House episode, S1 - E24) we learn that Arthur can play the piano when he temporarily moves out and after his house warming party Doug says to Carrie, "Who knew Arthur could play the piano like that?"
