Spring Break-Up - S3-E16

Character mistake: 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."

The Kidney Stays in the Picture - S7-E16

Plot hole: It is explicitly stated in this episode that Hayley was conceived in 1996. While normal for shows without character aging to change birth years to benefit the plot, this move was premature. Hayley's permanent age is stated as 18, and this episode implies that in 2012 she would be much younger than this. The whole plot centres around her being legally able to drink in a bar, so this is a pretty big mistake.

All About Steve - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: At the convention when we first see Roger and Hayley, they pass a booth that says Costume contest registration. There is also a few people around, a poster and a movable wall.

There is now about 4-5 different stalls behind them and no sign of the previous one or the poster and wall.
