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.

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.

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).
