Seinfeld

The Apartment - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Jerry's neighbours are arguing in the corridor about sponge size, Harold is holding the tiny scourer in different ways between shot (in a different spot and with his fingers suddenly stretched out). (00:08:40)

The Apartment - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: At Monk's, Jerry points at the woman feeding corned beef hash to her baby. There's an angle with the camera roughly behind Jerry Seinfeld's shoulder; the continuity here is sloppy, with George having his hand down flat on the table instead of with the fingers laced together with the other, and he has his right leg crossed and not the left. Just few seconds later he asks Jerry if he remembers his friend from Detroit, and he is pointing his left index finger at Jerry across the table instead, again, of having his hands close together. (00:07:30)

The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: During the scene with Donna and the wine bottle, besides continuity errors with cork and glasses position already mentioned in this page, the level of wine itself changes; Jerry poured wine to Donna, but her glass is empty in some shots, and before Kramer's arrival both are full, only to become empty in the last shot. (00:12:30 - 00:14:00)

The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: George is talking about the phone call; when he says "I don't like to go too long before I ask them out", the waitress with the blue cardigan is passing behind him. At the cut, she's already to the other side of the counter. (00:02:05)

The Jacket - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In the shot when Jerry points to Kramer where the ruined jacket is and he walks across the room to go check it out, the box of Ritz crackers is facing The Opposite direction than before, and in the following shot he is holding it in a different way too, by the top of the box instead of the bottom. (00:19:40)

The Jacket - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Elaine's dad says "Pipe down, chorus boy" to George, suddenly a hotel staffer in red appears in the recess by the lamp. In another blatant continuity mistake, in the shot that follows George is suddenly without glasses. (00:17:50)

The Jacket - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: At the end of their strategic break in the men's room, George tosses his paper towel in the bin to the right; however the previous shot ended with Jason Alexander turning around having the towel in his left hand and glancing towards the basket on the left. (00:13:55)

The Jacket - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In the reaction shot with Alton Benes scoffing at George and Jerry's sissy choice of drinks, a woman with a coat in hand is walking behind him, towards the door. In the next shot, no trace of the woman, just someone in a bicolor puffer. (00:10:25)

The Pony Remark - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Elaine tells George that Jerry must go to the funeral because he could have been the one who killed the old lady, Julia Louis-Dreyfus starts stirring the beverage. The spoon is gone at the cut, and at the following cut it is in her hand, which was free just a second before. Same later when George says that the dead don't care; she is holding it over the cup, but in the next shot it's suddenly inside the cup, hands off. (00:15:15)

The Pony Remark - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: During their casual talk about death and wasting your own life, George says he plans to continue wasting it. Cut, and both him and Elaine are in different poses than earlier, with Elaine licking the spoon and George with his fingertips by his mouth. In the majority of the conversation there are no such jumpcuts and continuity is kept. (00:14:45)

The Pony Remark - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Jerry called his parents back to tell them about Myra's dead. When his dad at the end of the scene says "You know what this funeral's gonna wind up costing me?" Barney Martin is leaning his head against his hand all of a sudden. (00:12:50)

The Pony Remark - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: At the family dinner, Jerry's mom mentions horses for the first time. Reaction shot on the old lady saying "yeah, yeah", and cut to a wider angle; she is now all of a sudden leaning on her right arm. (00:06:50)

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 Voice - S9-E2

Kramer: They're redoing the Cloud Club.
Jerry: Oh, that restaurant on top of the Chrysler Building? Yeah, that's a good idea.
Kramer: Of course it is. It's my idea.
Jerry: Which part? The renovating the restaurant you don't own part, or the spending the two hundred million you don't have part?
