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. The very next shot is more of a close up of the two and the background has changed dramatically. There is now about 4-5 different stalls behind them and no sign of the previous one or the poster and wall.Lummie
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Francine says she used to be friends with everyone in the block, there is a cutaway of a previous neighbor couple called the McLearys. After the cutaway, keep an eye on Francine's coffee mug. The mug keeps changing position on the table between shots. (00:02:10)Casual Person
Continuity mistake: In the pilot episode, during the breakfast scene, there are five donuts in the box in front of Roger before his chair breaks. When he takes one from the box, there are eight. When Francine takes his donut away, there are five in the box again. (00:03:20 - 00:03:50)Captain Defenestrator
Continuity mistake: Steve, Hayley and Francine all stand next to the door when Bullock arrives. They are all standing right next to the door in the shot where Stan adjusts their clothes. But they have magically moved a foot away from the door in the following shot where Stan opens the door. (00:03:45)Casual Person
Continuity mistake: Just as Bullock rings the doorbell, Roger oozes gunge from the left side and right side of his torso. The gunge from the right side goes on the couch and the left side goes off screen in a direction towards the door. Yet when Stan answers the door, no gunge is visible on the floor anywhere.

Continuity mistake: After Steve accidentally jabs the wood burner into Stan's penis, he screams and a avalanche occurs. Then when Stan screams a second time due to putting the cream on his penis, the avalanche happens again but the same amount of snow is on the mountain even after a load already fell off it.

Continuity mistake: When the bus driver finds Roger, the Dignity Towers Retirement Home bus is only a few feet away from them. But in the shot where Roger says "How do I get home? How do I get home?", there was no sign of any bus for many many meters. As if the bus just appeared out of nowhere. (00:09:45)Casual Person
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." (00:14:15)Travis Love Benson
[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.
Stan: I'm swinging wild, Francine.
