Continuity mistake: After Spence suffers from his allergic reaction to peanuts he's seen lying on the couch. Doug then says something to the effect of having to scrape Spence's lunch off the fence, indicating that he threw up. But the allergic reaction took place before they got to the lunch.
Continuity mistake: Doug finishes playing the tennis game on the TV with Arthur and goes into the kitchen to get the Cheese Doodles. While talking to Carrie, he puts the Cheese Doodle package on the table with a can of cola behind it. He then goes to get a glass from the cupboard and in the next shot you see the cola is in front of the Cheese Doodles.
Continuity mistake: In this episode, when Doug and Carrie are taking an adult literature class together, Doug comes down the stairs with his book in his hand, but when he sits on the couch he only has his book pillow and reading lamp, and runs back upstairs to get his book.
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.
Revealing mistake: Carrie comes into the kitchen, visibly hot and sweaty, and says, "Could it be any hotter?" Doug also has a sweat stain on his back and they stick their heads in the freezer. Suddenly Arthur walks in and says, "Do I have the word pushover on my forehead?" Arthur is wearing a thick shirt tucked into long pants and yet is not sweaty. At his age he would be more visibly drained from the heat than both Carrie and Doug. This happens again later in the episode in the garage.

Continuity mistake: During both driving scenes, the street lights in the background do not fade away in the distance to indicate they are actually driving forward. When Doug, Carrie and Arthur are pulled over waiting for Spence (and again when waiting for Arthur at Dairy Queen), lights scroll over the car and the sound of a passing vehicle can be heard but no car is seen to pass by or drive away in the distance.
