During the series there were many inconsistancies, bloopers, blunders, pratfalls, mistakes, faults and goofs made by both the actors/actressess and writers; and in this section we'll highlight on them. Each blooper includes episode title and description.

However, for the remainder of the episode the mole is no longer visible. The make-up artists have concealed in one frame, and it is completely visible in another!
