Continuity mistake: Benjamin and Mrs. Robinson have a rendezvous and while they're in bed he gets her to talk about where Elaine was conceived. She turns out the light and the conversation continues a while in the dark until Benjamin indicates that he might take Elaine out on a date. She turns on the light again and gets ready to rip his head off and two drinks appear where there were none before under the lamp on the left of the screen. (00:49:40)????
Continuity mistake: Benjamin and Mrs. Robinson have a rendezvous and while they're in bed in the dark he tries to get her to talk about her life and her husband. If you look closely after she turns the light back on the drapes on the window behind the lamp in the rear of the room have been rearranged without anyone going near them. This happens a couple of times throughout the scene. (00:48:00)????
Continuity mistake: After Benjamin and Mrs. Robinson have a fight about Elaine she sits on the side of the bed putting on her stockings as she gets ready to leave. Benjamin says, "Oh no, look I like you" and in the next shot as the camera shifts angles a chair appears in front of Mrs. Robinson that wasn't there before. (00:53:10)????
Continuity mistake: Benjamin and Mrs. Robinson have a rendezvous and while they're in bed he tries to get her to talk about her life and her husband. If you look closely at the top of the nightstand to her right there's only a pack of cigarettes and the switch to turn off the lamp. They speak in the dark for a few seconds that she turns the light back on and the nightstand is full of all sorts of other stuff that wasn't there before. (00:46:15)????
Continuity mistake: Benjamin brings up Mrs. Robinson's purse who says, "Put it in Elaine's room, where we were". He proceeds to put it next to a vase on the first shelf to the right of her picture. We've seen this shelf a few seconds before and all that was there was a cup and a pink basket that are now gone. (00:16:00)????
Continuity mistake: After Mrs. Robinson corners him in Elaine's room, Benjamin runs down stairs and picks up his drink just before Mr. Robinson walks through the front door. When we saw the drink earlier as he put it down just before they went up to see Elaine's picture, it was half full, now it's empty with a few ice cubes in it. (00:16:40)????

Continuity mistake: Mr. Robinson pours Benjamin a scotch and puts the large black liquor bottle back down facing outward the same way as the other one. As Mr. Robinson hands him his drink Benjamin says, "thank you, thank you very much" and if you look closely at the label the black bottle of scotch has been rotated 90 degrees to the left and is no longer facing them.
