Continuity mistake: In the episode "The Suicide", Kramer discusses suicide with Jerry, and says that he'd give someone 72 hours to come out of a coma before all his property is up for grabs. However, in the episode "The Comeback", Kramer tells Jerry that he never knew that people could come out of a coma.

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. In the next shot that shows the back of the boss's head the bag is now on top of a box that George is carrying. When it goes back to a close up the bag is in his hand again.

Continuity mistake: After Elaine unwraps her cashmere sweater, Kramer wraps the ribbon around his neck in a scarf-like way and then lies back on the couch. In a long shot of the apartment (as Elaine exits the bathroom), the ribbon is gone, but when it cuts to Kramer and he asks about the red dot (and for the rest of the scene), the ribbon is back.
Continuity mistake: When Kramer spills the tomato juice all over Jerry's walls, he grabs a light colored oven mitt to wipe it off. In one shot he wrings out the sopping mitt over the juice pitcher. When the shot changes and he tosses the mitt back onto the counter, the mitt is still the original color with no hint of red stains.
Continuity mistake: In the episode where Kramer becomes a ball-man, the episode ends with them at a tennis match. It shows a shot of the court, and no one is standing anywhere near the poles of the net. In the next shot, Kramer is crouched down next to the pole, ready to dive for the ball.

Continuity mistake: Jerry is waiting for George to come into his apartment and he says to Elaine and Kramer, "my oldest friend is dating the governor", and then folds his arms.

Continuity mistake: When Elaine and her new boyfriend are eating in the restaurant, her bangs are to the side. The shot goes to a close-up of her boyfriend, in the next shot her bangs are across her forehead. Then in the next close-up of her face, her bangs are back to the side.
Continuity mistake: The exterior shot they use when establishing Monk's cafe is completely different than what is inside in the cafe. First the outside has neon lights with just RESTAURANT. The inside of the cafe, the menus, windows and door all have Monk's cafe logo on them. Secondly the door should be in the middle of the restaurant, instead the interior shows it to be to the left of the restaurant and somewhat to the side. Lastly the windows in the exterior shot are extremely large with no writing, logo and curtains pulled to the side. Inside the cafe, the windows are much smaller, with permanent curtains coming halfway up the windows and the rest being blocked by Monk's cafe logo.
Continuity mistake: The scene which George arrives at Beth's apartment in a messy condition to admit his remark was in jest, his shirt's hem and collar change between shots.

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Bette Midler, she is injured when George tackles her at home plate. When he hits her, she is knocked into somebody.

Continuity mistake: When Celia breaks out of prison and comes to George's apartment, George opens the door and starts talking with her. After George says "And you decided to pop in" the shot shows Celia but the door has now closed behind her. It would have been impossible to close without us seeing it because Celia would have had to have moved forward to close the door.
Continuity mistake: After George and Janet leave the apartment, Jerry gets mad at Kramer for saying Janet looked like him. He shoves Kramer and the bottom half of the freezer door swings open. The next few shots show Jerry and Kramer from the chest up, but when a wide view shot is shown again, the freezer door is closed. It does not appear Jerry shut the door.
Continuity mistake: Due to the effect of the red glow on Kramer's eyes, he confuses the pitcher of tomato juice from Jerry's refrigerator for a pitcher of milk, pours it into the cereal, then gags and promptly tosses the contents of the bowl into the trash beside the fridge. In the close-up he tries to wipe some of it off the wall, but there's still a huge red mess left on the wall, in the trash, etc. In the next wide shot of Jerry and Kramer, the trash and wall are spotless.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, Cynthia is drinking a glass of wine. While speaking near the end of the scene, she is holding the glass in her right hand and says, "You know, guides you in your career path." The next shot is of Jerry and instantly the glass has disappeared from her hand with her right hand resting on the table. You can also see the glass is closer to her left hand now.

Continuity mistake: We find out George's parents sleep in separate beds. His father says "Thirty years ago we came to an agreement. It was the only way I could get some rest. Estelle's got the Jimmy arms." This contradicts S5E10, "The Cigar Store Indian", when George's parents come back from their trip, Estelle finds a condom wrapper in "our bed." Also Frank asks George, "You were having sex on our bed?", and Estelle follows by saying, "Who told you you could have sex in our bed?!"
Continuity mistake: In the start of the scene when Kramer tells Elaine that the armoire got stolen. When Elaine walks in from the right side she walks right past the armoire, and it still has the two blue straps on it so it's the same one. The gaffe seems to have been edited out in some versions.
Continuity mistake: When Loretta comes into the apartment she is carrying a coat and roses in one hand and the other hand is supporting her handbag by her right shoulder (left on screen). In the next shot she is holding the bottom of the flowers with both hands instead of just the left hand.
Continuity mistake: When Kramer and Jerry are talking about the bird being in the hallway, notice how the intercom keeps changing. In some shots the intercom is not set straight and leaning to the right and in other shots it is completely straight. The most notable change is when Kramer is leaving the apartment. It goes from crooked as he is leaving, then straight while he is outside in the hall and then the entire unit is completely pulled right out after Kramer rushes backs in.
Continuity mistake: While Jerry calls George from the coffee shop to tell him about the survey question, there is a shot of the waitresses and staff sitting at the tables. Behind them you can see the booths the gang usually sits at and there is a wall right next to the booth with pictures and pipes. Only problem is there are always booths next to the two near the front entrance. Even in this episode you can see the other booths as there are menus, condiments and napkins at the booths next to the regular booths.

Continuity mistake: When Mike accuses Jerry of murder at Susie's wake, watch the people behind and around Jerry.

Continuity mistake: Jerry says he has never seen an episode of I Love Lucy in his life, then pops the cork on the wine bottle. Then it cuts to the lady and she asks, "Is there anything else about you I should know?" and the wine bottle is still on the table, corked. Then it cuts back to Jerry, and the bottle is still in his hand uncorked.
Continuity mistake: In the first scene (approximately 3 minutes in) where Jerry points out the red-headed woman in the parking garage to George, she is leaving her vehicle in a section of the garage that is labeled 14 with a green background. However, later (approximately 23 minutes in) she is shown returning to her car in section 14, but the color is now yellow.
Continuity mistake: When George is at his girlfriend's mother's house, the plates on the table switch around. Then the order he stacks them changes. When he picks them up, the plate with the chicken is in the middle with a plate with a napkin on top, then in the kitchen, the plate with the chicken is on top.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, after George has successfully airbrushed himself out of Kruger's picture and reinserted an authentic picture of Kruger, Kruger picks up the picture and explains to George why he doesn't think the mole Kramer discovered in Kruger's cancer screening is anything to worry about. After George says "Whatever" and just before Kruger begins explaining the story behind the picture to George, he tilts the picture towards the camera and if you look closely you can see that George is still in the picture.

Continuity mistake: The inside and the outside of the Costanzas' home do not match up. From the inside, you can see that if you walk in the front door the kitchen would be on your left and a sitting room-type area is on your right (accessible from the living room). However, from the outside, it shows bay windows on what would be the left (kitchen) side and a door to another townhouse on the right (sitting room) side.
Continuity mistake: When Elaine joins Jerry and George at the cafe and tells them she spent ten minutes looking for a grape, keep an eye on the straw in George's drink. From shot to shot, the straw in George's drink keeps changing position, from tilted to upright, then tilted at the opposite end of the glass, then upright again, then back to tilted.

Continuity mistake: In the scene which starts with Jerry saying he has never seen an episode of I Love Lucy in his life, two wine glasses switch sides. The one with wine in it is on the left side of the screen, then 5 seconds later it is on the right side. Jerry also takes the cork out of the wine bottle and then in the next shot it is back on, only for the next shot for it to be off again.
Continuity mistake: When Elaine gets kicked out of the nail salon it is a clear day (in fact the whole episode is) then the next scene she meets J Peterman at night and in the rain. When she left the salon she is wearing a red blouse, no jacket. When she meets Peterman she is in a trench coat with a white blouse. The Peterman portion of this episode really makes no sense.
Continuity mistake: When George enters the cafe near the start, he takes Jerry's plate and begins eating the fries. After finishing the first fry, his hands are on the plate. Jerry then asks him what happened, and suddenly he has a fry in his hands which are also now raised slightly.
