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.

See Dick Run (1) - S1-E20

Sally: You know, I just really resent how we're supposed to jump every time the Big Giant Head sends a message.
Dick: I know. Everyone knows he only got the job by kissing the big giant butt.

Dick's Big Giant Headache (1) - S4-E23

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.

Dick and Taxes - S4-E12

Question: At the end of their audit, the Solomons are ordered by the IRS to pay back-taxes, some of which for years they weren't even on the planet. Can the IRS actually make people pay taxes for years in which they had no income?

Answer: No, the IRS cannot make you pay taxes during years in which you had no income but this family hasn't reported any income for years. You are still required to report your income every year, and if you fall below a certain threshold you don't pay federal income taxes. The IRS is assuming they are humans who have a house and careers but they have only filed taxes for a couple years (if at all). To the IRS it looks like simple tax evasion.
