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. (00:12:30 - 00:15:00)

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.

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)

Suggested correction: During streaming, any video player can be used. Meaning "play" or "scroll" buttons are still visible, just not functional.

The color of non-functional buttons will be muted. You can see in the picture that the stop button is solid black, indicating that it is functional. The marker on the status bar is also partially advanced. In a live stream, the marker would remain at the beginning position unless someone paused the stream, in which case resuming play would cause the marker to advance in order to catch up to the delay. In this scene, Dr. Solomon is teaching his class and interacting with his students, meaning no-one paused the stream.

Green-Eyed Dick - S1-E6

Dick: I happen to know that every word in that book has been published years before. Perhaps you've read the dictionary!

Dick on a Roll - S3-E12

Trivia: Dick is never seen walking in this episode and is only in an upright position when he moves from the chair in the lounge room to the wheelchair in the opening scene. This is because John Lithgow hurt his ankle playing tennis, and the episode was written to allow him to be in a wheelchair for the entire episode.

Chosen answer: Officer Don ended up appearing in 100 of 139 episodes, but I would say season 3 is when he become permanent as Wayne Knight's name appears in the opening credits. However, as he did appear throughout season 2 (first appearance S01E17), it's possible they already considered him permanent at that time since season 3's opening credits also included Simbi Khali (Nina) and Elmarie Wendel (Ms. Dubcek).
