Stan Knows Best - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Stan has a flashback of when Hayley was younger. She is at least 8 and she is 18 now. In the flashback, Stan mentions President Clinton's sex scandal. This episode is set in 2005. If this episode takes place in 2005 and that was around ten years ago, it would be around 1995. The Clinton sex scandal didn't take place until 1998.

Casual Person

Correction: Several reasons why this isn't a mistake. First he merely states Haley should eat her peas to "fight off President Clinton's sexual advances". There is nothing about this statement that relates to the sex scandals of '98. Second, the Gennifer Flowers sex scandal came out in '92, so there was already precedent for that line. Third, '98 is when the public became aware of the sex scandals, even though the events occurred in the 80's and early 90's (most notably the Lewinsky scandal occurring in '95). As a C.I.A. agent, it's plausible Stan knew of Clinton's propensity to making sexual advances prior to the '98 scandals. Finally, nothing in the scene suggest Haley is only 8, it's entirely possible the flashback is 1998.

[The Smiths have just heard a news report on TV about a crime on their street.]
Stan: Right in our own neighborhood. Well it's clear the time has come for me to show you where we hide our guns.
[Pulls a gun out from under the table.]
Stan: Glock. Seventeen shots. [Takes pen from a pen holder.] Pen gun. Mightier than the sword. [Pulls sword out of knife holder.] Sword gun. Mightier than the pen gun. [Opens pantry door.] AR-15. MK-5. Mac-10. Paprika.
Francine: That's weird. I use that pantry a lot.
Stan: And the paprika not enough.
Hayley: I can't believe this house is teeming with guns. Guns kill.
Stan: Oh. Guns kill. Is that right? [Takes gun out of jacket and puts it on the table.] Well, let's see about that. Okay, gun. Kill. Go ahead. Kill someone. Don't be shy. See? Guns don't kill people. People kill people. Guns defend people against people with smaller guns.
Hayley: You're such a fascist.
Stan: Peace pusher.
Hayley: Murderer.

Francine: Stan!
Stan: I'm swinging wild, Francine.

Mistakes

At one point in the show, Roger throws a bucket of water (in disguise as Scotch Bingeington) on Francine claiming "Wet T-Shirt Contest!" Francine looks disgusted when Roger states "Eh, give this one a four" to the guy judging the contest, then says to Francine "Don't feel bad, you've had three kids." Francine replies "I've had two." and Roger gasps and puts a consoling hand on Francine's shoulder. This is wrong because Francine has birthed four children. She previously gave birth to Bailey (Hayley's twin), and Greg and Terry's baby in Season 3 Episode 7 "Surro-Gate."
