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. (00:00:40)

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. (00:12:00)

Monkeys Take a Bath - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Carl is staying with the son Earl in his motel room after he separated from his wife and starts going back and forth for the room, there are two socks on the floor by the bed, one of which changes position in another shot.

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. (00:17:40)

Witch Lady - S4-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Throughout the whole episode, there are times that you see the green light from the camera reflecting off of the Witch Lady's glasses.

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). (00:10:30)

Inside Probe: Part 1 - S4-E25

Police officer: It's police policy not to waste resources looking for a missing person in the first 24 hours because they usually show up on their own, and after 24 hours, if they're still missing, it usually means they're dead and we don't look for them that hard then either

More quotes from My Name Is Earl

Trivia: Most of Catalina's speeches in Spanish (the ones that are not translated) are actually actress Nadine Velasquez speaking to the camera, addressing the viewers. For example, in episode 1-11 (Barn Burner), although it appears that she is throwing insults at Joy, she is actually saying "I want to take this moment to thank our Latino audience for watching. And for those of you who can understand me but who are not Latino, I want to commend you for learning a second language".
