Revealing mistake: In the first shot of Glen walking and the cart collector following him, everything appears as normal, however when the camera cuts to a longer shot, everything is now mirrored. (00:04:52)

Factual error: As Eleanor walks in the corridor to Chidi's office at St. John's University, there's an exit sign mounted in the ceiling above her - a North American style red Exit sign. As she is in Australia, it should either a white on green Exit sign or an international "running man" style sign, as North American style signs were never legal in Australia. (00:20:55)

Continuity mistake: In all shots of Cam talking on her phone to Arastoo after the first, what's on the bottom of the phone is different to the first. Later, when she has the phone is on the table, what was on the bottom in the later shots is at the top of the phone, suggesting at some point she started talking on it upside down. (00:02:53 - 00:04:05)

Plot hole: Several times throughout the show, it's bought up that there is a seven second delay on Frasier's show at KACL, which, among other things, would allow Roz to "dump" the last seven seconds of what's been said and prevent it from being broadcast. When Roz notices that Frasier is still on the air during his rant, it takes her about nine seconds to get back to her console, so she should have been able dump the last seven seconds of his rant, leaving only the first few words of Frasier's rant (likely no more than "Good Grief, have you...") going to air, which would be much less awkward compared to his entire rant. (00:09:20 - 00:09:50)

Audio problem: After Mary says "Except I bet you didn't walk through a metal detector to get to class", Frasier in that shot does not move his mouth in line with the dialog that he speaks, but instead appears to be laughing. Additionally in the next shot, although his mouth now matches his dialog, he is half way out of his seat despite being sat in it in the previous shot. (00:02:15)

Continuity mistake: When Lane spins the Doggy Swami wheel, the number 5 is at the top, and Lorelai removes the piece of paper under it. When it changes to the close up shot, the wheel now has the number 20 at the top with the piece of paper under it drawn. (00:40:15)

Other mistake: While talking to his therapist, Dick tells her that one of the mishaps that he caused in his relationship with Mary was showing up to a fundraiser naked. While true, this doesn't happen until Episode 13 (Rutherford Beauty) - two episodes later. This was due to the fact that most of Season 5 was aired out of production order.

Trivia: Dick is never seen walking in this episode and is only in an upright position when he moves from the chair in the lounge room to the wheelchair in the opening scene. This is because John Lithgow hurt his ankle playing tennis, and the episode was written to allow him to be in a wheelchair for the entire episode.

Character mistake: In the scene in Sisko's office where he has contacted Rear Admiral Bennett, Bennett says "Two hundred years ago, we tried to improve the species through DNA resequencing, and what did we get for our trouble? The Eugenics Wars." This puts the wars in the 22nd century, and differs from every other mention of them, where they occurred in the late 20th century, not the 22nd century as Bennett implies.

Continuity mistake: The scene where Charlotte comes to Frasier in the restaurant to tell Frasier his date has cancelled is poorly edited between shots. Watch the folder once she has pulled it out: in almost every shot, the side facing the camera changes, and when Charlotte gets up, it disappears completely.

Continuity mistake: When Lauren drags Puck into the storage closet for Seven Minutes In Heaven, there are hearts on the wall which appear to be decorations for Valentine's Day. As the Seven Minutes In Heaven happened prior to Sectionals, which was well before Valentine's Day, these shouldn't be there.

Other mistake: When Finn and Rachel sing Smile in the Choir Room in Mattress (Season 1, Episode 12), Finn doesn't appear to look at any other page but the first one in the music given to him by Rachel. It is unlikely that the entire score for the song was on the first page.
