Top Banana - S1-E2

Queen for a Day - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Michael has just taken Lucille number two to Tobias' new club, the shots are obviously taken on different occasions. The collar of his jacket goes from misaligned to correct, his hair goes from ruffed to "done" and the lighting goes from hard and sharp to soft. (00:18:50)

My Mother The Car - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the kitchen, Lucille Bluth takes a bottle of "Bushmills" (a brand or Irish whiskey) out of a grocery bag during a scene in the episode; however the liquid inside is clear/transparent and obviously not whiskey.

Not Without My Daughter - S1-E21

Audio problem: In the final scenes where Tobias is shooting at the rats you see the shot blasts after each firing of the gun. On the fourth shot there is no visible blast but there is still an audible gunshot when it happens.

The One Where They Build a House - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When Michael is talking to George Michael, Oscar, Buster, and Tom Jane about the house they are about to build (and what they all want out of it), it is clear in the wide shots showing all five that Tom Jane is not present; the person standing in for him has a completely different haircut and wears glasses. They try to hide it but it is obvious at several points. (00:14:15)

Good Grief! - S2-E4

Tobias Funke: Michael, you should really try to find a way to release your feelings. Otherwise, they could come out at an inopportune time.
[Tobias looks into the refrigerator.]
Tobias Funke: Where the fuck are my hard-boiled eggs?!
