Factual errors 

In preparing to cook Timmy, Betty remarks that she could never do long division and asks aloud how much is 75 divided by 12. When Timmy answers and asks why, she indicates that she is trying to determine his cooking time. But if she is, she must MULTIPLY 75 by 12. (The answer is 900, or 15 hours.)

Miscellaneous 

When the credits are being introduced, it's noted that the list is in order of appearance. However, Matthew Lawrence actually appears before Christian Slater and other names are obviously not in proper order.

Plot holes 

Carola tells Preston that she was able to get a friend of a friend to display his artwork at an exclusive art gallery. At the end of the segment, Carola is revealed to be the very gargoyle that attacked Preston. Bit of a mystery how a gargoyle, posing as a human, could even have the connections to get Preston's artwork to be shown at an art gallery.
