Run For Your Wife - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: During the episode when Clair and Phil do their warm-up before racing each other, their children Alex and Luke arrive from school. They get down from the car, and the car takes off and goes away. But in the 2nd shot we can see that same car parked in front of them. (00:17:00)

Boys' Night - S2-E18

Other mistake: In the opening scene, the Dunphys are playing ball in their backyard when Claire knocks it into their crotchety old neighbour's yard. They all head in, and as Phil explains to Luke that it's because it's their only ball, another ball is in the grass visible over Luke's shoulder.

Don't Push - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: While trying to take a new family portrait, after Cameron, Mitchell, and Lily shake out their faces, say cheese and take another photo, Cameron goes to look at the laptop screen and there's a closeup of that newest photo, but when he tells Mitchell to look at the screen it's a different photo - note Lily's goofy eyes, etc.

Do You Believe in Magic - S8-E12

Continuity mistake: In "Great Expectations" (1-8) Claire and Phil say that they had their first kiss in Claire's car. In this episode Phil buys the swing set where they had their first kiss.

Phil on Wire - S3-E3

Other mistake: When Cameron follows Mitchell into the sea, Cameron's shirt is visibly wet even though he is in a very shallow area of water. After cutting back to Cameron, the wet mark on his shirt has gotten bigger and traveled further up his shirt even though there are no significantly large waves that could have caused him to become so wet.

Come Fly with Me - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene before Jay hits Phil in the face with the plane, the remote control's antenna (the one he is using to fly the plane) switches between the 'forward' and 'up' positions. (00:10:50)

Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Dylan visits Haley at home, when Claire grabs Dylan as he's going up the stairs you can see a member of the crew (probably the man holding the mic) in the mirror in the background behind Claire. (00:10:40)

Dance Dance Revelation - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: When Lily hits Mitchell in the face, her 'arm' is covered by a pyjama-like material, but the next shot shows her wearing a sleeveless dress, showing her 'arm' was really a padded stick.

Haley's 21st Birthday - S6-E10

Plot hole: The family mistakenly believes Hayley will be having her first drink. However, there were several instances in earlier episodes where they saw her drinking or drunk, or she admitted she'd been drinking. For example, in the episode "Arrested", the family drove down to bail her out of jail for underage drinking, and they saw the video footage, and the family members who didn't go were informed of the situation.

Fight or Flight - S6-E15

Aunt Mommy - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Claire is talking to Phil about having Cam's baby, she grabs a coffee cup out of the cabinet. In the next shot she grabs the same cup out of the cabinet again. (00:13:10)

Come Fly with Me - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: In the first shot of Luke jumping on the trampoline with no pants, he has blue underwear, but in the second shot, he has burgundy underwear. (00:04:30 - 00:05:10)

The Musical Man - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Jay is talking with his brother and finds out about his brother's cancer, he is holding a glass of scotch with a tiny bit of ice. When his brother approaches him the glass now just has ice with no scotch. We don't see the glass for a short period before he is about to sit in his chair and spills the contents of the glass, which now has the scotch and ice again.

Baby on Board - S3-E24

Plot hole: Luke says they received a red light ticket in the mail from the time he stole a car, but it was Cameron's car he stole. (00:21:25)

Family Portrait - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: The scene in which the whole family were mud-fighting. Just after the camera man says "Excuse me, are we still doing this" look at Manny's shirt. It just has a small mud stain on the pocket, but as the scene continues the stain looks different with no reason and there is suddenly mud on Manny's face too.
