White Lie Christmas - S1-E10

Number One - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: When Randy is scratching off the joke lottery ticket, the amount of scratched-off material left on the ticket changes between the three close-ups. One shot shows that the ticket was rubbed and not scratched (the area revealed has a haze to it).

Barn Burner - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Earl is in the Crab Shack discussing the punishing of the children, there is an empty tray on the counter in front of Crab Man, but when the shot changes, Crab Man is holding the tray with a bottle of beer on it. The shot changes back to Crab Man holding the empty tray, then changes back to him holding the tray with the bottle on it.

Continuity mistake: Season 4, Episode 19, "My Name Is Alias": While Darnell's farther has his back to Earl, Earl tries to jump him; Darnell's father hits Earl, and Earl falls to the floor.

Y2K - S1-E19

Deliberate mistake: The gang is able to get into the bargain bag store without any security system going off or police investigating the break-in at the store. Even the following day, no one bothers them while they're sleeping in the beds in the store.

Monkeys Take a Bath - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, when Joy sees the IQ game, the two poles are close together and there is nothing directly beside it. But when she gets close and the camera changes angles the poles are now separated and a small gold toy is sitting beside it. Then when she leans down next to it the poles are still separated, but the toy is gone.

Monkeys Take a Bath - S4-E2

Audio problem: In the shot where Randy throws the glass of beer at the wall behind him in the Crab Shack, his mother's mouth is not synced with the audio that she is speaking: the audio was continued from another shot, and in this one, she is saying different words.

Y2K - S1-E19

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene in Y2K when you see Donny Jones jumping around in front of the TV screens, as the camera slowly moves in past the TVs, you can see the camera man and the camera actually shown on the TV.

Very Bad Things (1) - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Randy spray paints his name over the bargain buys logo on the side of the truck. However, when Earl and Joy realise there is a man in the back of it, it cuts to a long shot and it still has the bargain buys logo on it. Then when Earl comes back with the gas, Randy is painting over his name with the white paint.

Teacher Earl - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Randy gives Earl his safety deposit key back. The screen switches to Randy, and then back to Earl, except where there used to be a safety deposit key on the napkin in from of him are now 3 safety deposit keys, and rearranged for that matter. After another screen switch between the two, the 3 keys get rearranged again.

Little Bad Voodoo Brother - S4-E8

Revealing mistake: When Earl and Randy are being beaten by the mob, it is obvious that no contact is being made when Earl is kicked or when Randy is being beaten with sticks.

Inside Probe: Part 2 - S4-E26

Factual error: You hear a recording of Earl's ancestor from the 1860s, but audio recording like that was not technologically possible at the time (especially for someone as obscure as him).
