131 mistakes

The Dog - S3-E4

Character mistake: When George and Elaine go to the coffee shop after the movie without Jerry, they establish that Elaine moved to NYC in 1986. Then they make fun of the way that Jerry throws up; both imitating Jerry. The "Dinner Party" episode is after the "The Dog". In the "Dinner Party" episode, Jerry brags that he hasn't thrown up since June 29th, 1980. The black and white cookie ended this streak. Elaine would not have been around to see this,… not arriving in NYC until 1986.

The Andrea Doria - S8-E10

Other mistake: The tenant board member tells George that Mr. Eldrige in apartment 8C has decided he wants the new apartment. However, the new apartment in question has a 3-digit number - 808 I believe. This indicates that the building would not have single digit numbers and letters (Such as 5E, 8C, etc.) as part of its numbering system.

Brittle Fingers

The Hot Tub - S7-E5

Plot hole: When Elaine is searching for Jean Paul in the streets, one of her verbal flashbacks is of Jean Paul saying, "I trust Elaine, she is my friend." However, Jean Paul made this remark to Jerry, and Elaine was not there to hear it. How could she have a flashback of it?

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Jerry's sitting with George in the hospital talking about George's jacket, as Jerry says "no, I tried it on, it fits good", he's gesturing with his left hand, which he then puts in his lap.

Continuity mistake: This mistake is in the Calzone episode. Towards the end when George walks in and his boss is looking around for the smell of calzones, George is holding a bag in his hand.

Show generally

Factual error: During the entire series, the view of Jerry's door from the hallway is of a flat wall with the door in line, yet from inside the apartment, not only does the kitchen angle into the hallway, but Jerry's fridge is recessed into the wall. The wall behind it should be blocking the hallway completely.

Continuity mistake: When Newman and the landlord look into Kramer's apartment through his peephole, the background doesn't match from when they look in and when he opens the door.

Add time

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, when Puddy is farewelling Elaine on the street, he is standing on the sidewalk and leaning through the driver's window. The following shot when she pulls out quickly, you can see through the windows of the car that Puddy is nowhere to be seen.

The Statue - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In the Statue, George claims to have broken a statue that used to sit on his mantle. However, in season 6 episode 89 "The Pledge Drive", George states that he would be a completely different person if his parents had a mantle.

Add time

The Dealership - S9-E11

Factual error: George asks for a nickel from Jerry for his candy bar. He then proceeds to put only 3 coins into the machine for a $0.50 candy bar. No 2 coins would require a nickel to make 50 cents.
