* OutOfOrder: The two part episode "It's My Party" (where Jennifer turns 13) was made for the fourth season but delayed and not shown until the end of the fifth season. This was quite noticeable since Andrew, who was now being played by a much older Brian Bonsall, was back to being a newborn baby and Alex's girlfriend Ellen is back even though she had already broken up with Alex when she moved to Paris. No explanation was ever given for why the episodes were shown out of order.

** Also, with Mallory, when she begins dating Nick. They had envisioned Mal dating a nice guy, perhaps college educated ... not some biker and Rambo-wannabe.

* WhatHaveIDone: Uncle Ned (SpecialGuest Creator/TomHanks) in "Uncle Ned" (from Season 2), where he loses out on an opportunity to work at the TV station where Steven works (after he shows up to the job interview drunk), then comes home even more drunk ... and then (fitting the trope) after getting into an argument with Alex, punches him in the head, sending him flying across the room. Only then is Ned shocked into realizing he has a serious problem.
