The Drew Carey Show

ABC (ended 2004)




  • Season 4 Episode 26: Up on the Roof

  • When Drew bangs on Lewis' storage locker door, it opens a fraction before Lewis touches the handle.

  • On the roof of the salon, Lewis is trying to kill bugs with the pneumatic nail gun, but if you look closely, there aren't any nails coming out, which means he's only shooting air.

  • Season 4 Episode 24: Good Vibrations

  • In one of the last scenes, we hear a sound of a "marital aide" coming from Drew and Sharon's tent in Drew's backyard. It's assumed to be the one featured throughout the episode, but it's impossible, since we saw Drew give it to Mimi in an earlier scene. The only logical explanation would be Mimi gave it back, or Sharon bought a second "marital aide," but it wasn't shown.

  • Season 4 Episode 23: She's Gotta Have It

  • The bartender implies he's the son of the owner of the Warsaw Tavern. However, the bartender in almost all other episodes is actor Tim O'Rourke, and in fact, this bartender is never seen before or since.

  • During the flashback where young Drew goes back into the barbershop to get his hat, he puts on a Colorado Rockies hat. The Rockies weren't in existence until 1993. This is a mistake that is not pointed out in reruns.

  • Season 4 Episode 20: DrugCo

  • During the ending credits, it shows the main characters riding the Monkeypotamus western style with a desert in the background.

  • Season 4 Episode 14: A House Divided

  • When Drew's house is split in half, it appears it doesnt have a proper foundation, the floor is at the same level as the ground. Which if anyone knows, they always lift up the house from the ground to prevent sagging of the floor. Also, the basement door is gone.

  • Season 4 Episode 11: Kate's Family

  • When Scott comes home and finds Kate in a robe, he says to her, "I thought we were going to play with the kids." Kate walks up to him and says, "We are. Meet the kids." Kate then opens her robe and shows her breasts to him (but not the audience, of course). However if you notice, in the first shot where she has her robe open, she's holding the edges of her robe over on the side, but when we cut to a different angle--a side view angle (previously we were seeing the back of Kate)--Kate now is holding the edges of the robe more in front of her. This was obviously done so viewers couldn't see anything when the camera cut to a different angle, but it was still very jarring.

  • When Drew is pouring a glass of juice for himself, you can see that Kate's glass is already full; but then Drew puts down his cup and starts pouring juice into Kate's now-empty glass.

  • Season 4 Episode 10: Drew's Dance Party

  • The repeats of the musical numbers give us glimpses of characters that are no longer in the series, including Nikki and most notably Lisa.

  • Oswald went to a store for beer, which would be unnecessary. Oswald would not have to go to a store because Drew has a brewery in his garage.

  • Season 4 Episode 9: The High Road to China

  • Season 4 Episode 7: Nicki's Wedding

  • The following tribute was shown at the end of this episode:

    We Dedicate this Episode to the Lasting Memory of our friend, John Goode.

    Goode times. Goode times.

  • Season 4 Episode 6: Cain and Mabel

  • Near the beginning of this episode, right before Mrs. Harvey arrives, you can see her through the kitchen window. She's standing in the doorway waiting for her cue.

  • Season 4 Episode 4: Drew Between the Rock and...

  • Weird Al had recently gotten Lasik surgery and shaved before this episode aired. The producers thought that people wouldn't recognize him without his trademark mustache and glasses, so they made him wear fake glasses and a mustache.

  • Season 4 Episode 1: Drew and the Conspiracy

  • The Sega Saturn on the top of Drew's TV is not plugged into the TV, only the power cord is hanging down.

  • Season 3 Episode 28: My Best Friend's Wedding

  • When Drew and Kate come home they find a balloon that says "pop me." Drew picks up a pin and pops it
    and finds a note. He gives it to Kate and she reads it: "Kate, look under the couch." At this point, Kate (Christa Miller) is standing on the right
    side of Drew with Drew facing toward Kate. But when we cut to the next shot Kate is already at the couch on the left side of Drew bending over looking for another note. Plus, Drew has turned all the way around and is looking downward toward Kate.

  • Pinky disappears and is not mentioned again after going into Drew's kitchen to get more eggs.

  • Season 3 Episode 22: What's Wrong with This Ep...
