Marie acts like she is reading from Raymond's diary, however from the angle that she's holding it, it's obvious that there's no writing on the page except for a standard header on every page. Raymond also doesn't write anything when she asks him to amend the entry.
Robert says they left him at a gas station in Arizona, but in "Traffic School," he says they left him at a station in New Mexico.
In the beginning of the episode when Robert is greeting Lois, he bends down and accidentally kisses her on the lips.
Later on, when Lois and Warren are arguing, he mimics her about the kiss. This is strange, because when they kissed Warren was outside. So unless someone told him about it, he shouldn't know they kissed.
Nitpick: When Robert was having a box of Bugles, he didn't touch it to his chin. After offering Raymond a Bugle, he touched another one to his chin.
At the beginning of the episode, Debra is talking about how much she enjoyed Italy because the whole family got along so well. It's a bit of a stretch to say that, especially since Ray was in a horrible mood up until the last couple of days, and Marie was her typical nagging self toward Debra throughout the trip.
When Ray is complaining about the new wallpaper stripes being thinner than the rest of the walls, look closely and you'll see that is it actually the exact same.
When Robert is eating his peach gelato for the first time, he does not touch it to his chin. Obviously, it's not very smart to touch ice cream to your chin, but it's still very strange to see, because Robert never goes without this little habit.
According to this episode, Marie was not annoying or interfering until Robert's divorce. This is not true however. In "Ally's Birth" and "The First Time," Marie is just as interfering as always.
In "Why Are We Here?" Robert says Joanne divorced him because she caught him having fun without her.
Notice Ray Romano's face in the opening scene, after Robert grabs him and kisses him. Ray is trying to look disgusted, but it is clearly taking everything within him not to burst out laughing.
When Robert shuts off the pinball machine, the punk turns it back on about 15 seconds later and resumes playing without restarting the game or putting in more money. Pinball machines reset when shut off and would need to have more money put in to restart.
When Debra gets back from her three-hour shopping trip, Ray is complaining about how he had to make a peanut butter and jelly dinner for the kids. But what about the bags of take-out food he had brought in earlier?
In "The Gift" Frank celebrated his 65th birthday, but here he says he is 64 years old.
Marie says "Real cooks don't need recipes" which contradicts her having a box full of them that she heavily covets in "Marie's Meatballs" in season two.
Ally is described in this episode (and several other episodes this season) as being seven years old. But since she was five in the first season, she's actually supposed to be nine at this point in the show. Same goes with the ninth season: She was said to be 12 when she was really supposed to be 14.
At the beginning of the scene where the three Barone kids are singing along to the Hackidu song with Robert on the couch, the scene opens with a picture of the house from the outside, and it is light and not raining at all. Then, when Ray comes in minutes later, it is suddenly dark and pouring rain.
In "The Tenth Anniversary" it is snowing outside, but in "The Wedding Part 1" the date that they book for the reception is on the 17th of June.
The bedroom scene finds Robert sitting up in bed after getting home from the hospital with his upper thigh injury. If he really had a wound in that spot, there's no way he could sit like that. In the DVD commentary, Ray Romano and Phil Rosenthal acknowledged that this was an obvious plot hole, and a foolish mistake on their parts.
Watch for a nice non-scripted moment at the end of the episode, when the Barones are sitting at Church. Madylin Sweeten, who plays little Ally, gets something in her eye, and Patricia Heaton (Debra) gets a Kleenex out of her purse, wipes Sweeten's eye, asks if she's okay, and strokes the side of her face.
In the beginning of the episode the kids are playing a Nintendo 64 game. Debra comes down and turns it off by pressing a button on the controller. The only off button for a Nintendo 64 is on the console, which was on the coffee table.
