My Mother The Alien - S2-E9

Other mistake: When Harry spits baby food on the baby (the camera lens in actuality) in retaliation for the baby spitting food on him and Tommy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt breaks character and laughs uncontrollably and looks at and gestures to off-screen crew members a couple times.

A Nightmare on Dick Street (1) - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: In 1-2: "Post Nasal Dick", Harry has a dream about Martha Stewart. But in this episode they panic because they dream and have nightmares and don't know what they are. Shouldn't Harry have panicked when he dreamed about Martha Stewart?

Dick and the Single Girl - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When Sonja takes Dick's belt, she has it in her right hand, away from Dick. In the next few shots, Sonja no longer has the belt, but it is back around Dick's pants. Yet the next shot (at the door), it's in Dick's hand.

D3: Judgement Day - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Jennifer comes into work the next day after her dinner date with Dick, her face is covered in hives from an allergic reaction. Later when Dick interrupts her choral group, the hives on her face have disappeared. She and Dick are wearing the same clothes in both scenes, so she couldn't have overcome such a reaction in such a short amount of time.

Dick on a Roll - S3-E12

Dick on One Knee - S2-E16

Other mistake: When Dick is trying to get into the jewelry store, the clerk keeps trying to buzz him in. When that doesn't work because Dick doesn't understand to wait for the buzzer to finish before he tries opening the door, the clerk goes over to the door and unlocks the deadbolt and opens the door for him. If the door was locked by a deadbolt, then a buzzer wouldn't really do anything to unlock the door.

Dick on One Knee - S2-E16

Character mistake: When Tommy walks into the flower shop, he tells the clerk that his sister is getting married. For the purpose of their mission, Sally, the sister in question, is actually supposed to be Tommy's aunt.

Dick Puts the Id in Cupid - S5-E11

Other mistake: While talking to his therapist, Dick tells her that one of the mishaps that he caused in his relationship with Mary was showing up to a fundraiser naked. While true, this doesn't happen until Episode 13 (Rutherford Beauty) - two episodes later. This was due to the fact that most of Season 5 was aired out of production order.

Hotel Dick - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: Right at the beginning of the episode as the camera pans over to the doors of the movie theater you can see the actors playing the Solomons waiting for their cue to come bursting out of the doors as if they were running out of the theater.

Sex and the Sally - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: Dick's plot in this episode is that he learns about the concept of tipping. However, the season 3 episode "Eleven Angry Men and One Dick" showed that Dick was already familiar with the concept of tipping when he tipped a bailiff during a jury selection process.

Y2dicK - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: In the scene with www.planetsolomon.com, you can see that it is a pre-filmed video (not a live stream as he said), as it has a time slider and play\pause controls etc.

00:13:05 - 00:13:45

Two-Faced Dick - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: The bottle of orange soda on the breakfast tray Dick tries to bring to Mary changes to a bottle of alcohol (Jack Daniel's I believe) when he sets it down. It later changes back into the bottle of orange soda.

Indecent Dick - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: During a conversation between Sally, Mary and Nina about posing for "Playpen" magazine, Mary's glasses are on one second, and then off the next. This mistake repeats twice in thirty seconds. They're nowhere to be seen otherwise.

00:13:30

Mary Loves Scoochie (1) - S6-E17

Revealing mistake: The sword fight between Dick and the Black Knight was sped up in order to make their movements look more competent. Note the extras in the background moving unusually fast.

Revealing mistake: When Tommy is asking if everyone remembers which baby came from which incubator, you can see the baby he his holding in his left arm is just a doll.

Dick's Big Giant Headache (2) - S4-E24

Dick and the Other Guy (2) - S3-E23

Audio problem: When Liam is performing karaoke at the end of the episode, his mouth is not even moving for some of the lyrics, and there aren't any vocal tracks on the song, because only the instruments are heard when he abruptly stops singing to admonish the crowd for trying to leave during his performance.

Sally and Don's First Kiss - S3-E24

Factual error: When Dick is purchasing his lunch, the cashier tells him the total is $3.75 and he incredulously lays down another coin because he thought his total was going to be $3.50. When he walks away with his tray, you can see that he paid for the meal with 4 coins. Unless he paid with silver dollars (the Sacajawea dollar had not been minted yet) then there is no way he could have covered the $3.75 with just 4 coins. And if he did pay with silver dollars then it would have been completely out of character for him to not have gotten any change, seeing how the show has established him as a cheapskate, as well as he would definitely get change seeing as how upset he was at having to pay an additional 25 cents for his meal.

Brains and Eggs - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Ms. Dubcek is showing the Solomons the attic apartment in the pilot episode, they enter (and she later exits) through what is Dick's bedroom in all subsequent episodes. Additionally the staircase at the back of the living room that serves as an entry point is completely missing.

Post Nasal Dick - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Dick wants to go along with Mary to a wedding he tries to convince her. When he says "Whatever it takes, I'll do it" he walks forward. Take a look at the top of the screen and you'll notice the shadow of the boom mic on the wall following him.

Citizen Solomon - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Dick hands Nina a box full of dishes and asks for them to be cleaned. She then drops the box on the ground where it lands upright. All of the dishes remain in the box. The next time it's seen a few seconds later, it's suddenly on its side with dishes scattered across the floor. None of the characters touch it and there is no sound indicating that it magically tipped over by itself.

Y2dicK - S4-E17

Factual error: Mary gives Dick directions to press Command-Q to close something. As Dick is using a Compaq computer which would be running Windows, he would not have a Command key and would instead have a Control key (which he actually is pressing) as the Command key exists only on Apple Macintosh computers. Ctrl+Q on a Windows machine doesn't do anything.

Green-Eyed Dick - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Mrs. Dubcek says that she doesn't allow dogs because she is allergic to dogs, but in a later episode she claims that she doesn't allow dogs because she has 6 cats buried in the back yard.

Trivia

When the Solomons meet the Big Giant Head at the airport and ask how his flight was, he says that it was horrible because when he looked out the airplane window, he saw something on the wing of the plane. Dick responds that the same thing happened to him. William Shatner appeared in the 1960's Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" in which a gremlin tried to destroy the wing of a plane. John Lithgow appeared in "Twilight Zone: The Movie" playing the same character in the same situation.
