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?"

Tricker Treat - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: When Doug and Deacon are driving round trying to find Gabe's Pizzeria, they get into the car and pull out into the road. However if you look at the traffic, they would have hit at least 2 cars in doing so. But they don't, showing it's a projection. (00:14:40)

Missing Links - S4-E17

Character mistake: When Carrie finds Tina, she mentions the "stuff" that Tina listens to at work, and Tina tells her that it's salsa. We know from previous episodes that Carrie likes salsa dancing, so shouldn't she know salsa music?

Friender Bender - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Doug, Carrie, Deacon and Kelly are at Coopers, the man in the blue shirt who is talking to the women sitting at the table behind them appears, disappears, walks off and then reappears again during this scene. (00:08:20 - 00:10:40)

Sight Gag - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Carrie takes Doug into the back yard to yell at him, after she is done swinging at him, she puts her hand up to her chin. First it's her left, then right. It changes between shots. Each time the camera goes back to her it happens.

Shrink Wrap - S4-E25
