The Soup - S6-E7

Corrected entry: In the last scene, Newman tells Jerry that The Soup Nazi is going out of business. When Jerry asks where Newman is going, Newman replies that The Soup Nazi is giving away what's left and Newman is running home to get a big pot. He then runs to the left of the screen. You then see Jerry silently decide to do the same thing, but he runs off to the right of the screen. Jerry and Newman live in the same building; they wouldn't run in different directions to go to the same place.

Correction: True, but we can't be sure that Jerry runs home. It is possible he did not have any pots/containers big enough, and ran to borrow one from a friend, or maybe even buy a new one. Or he ran to The Soup Nazi straight away, hoping to beat the rush.

Twotall

Correction: The Jewish singles party was ironically being held at The Knights of Columbus which is a Catholic fraternity.

The Pie - S5-E15

Corrected entry: In the episode where George is hoping to buy a "discounted suit" there is a scene where he is talking to the foreign shop assistant. In the first shot he has the suit in his hands. The scene switches to the assistant, then back to George and on the second shot the suit is no longer in his hands.

Correction: The shop assistant took it out of his hands.

James Storck

The Keys - S3-E23

Corrected entry: Although it moves the plot along, it makes no sense for George to exchange spare keys with Kramer when he was told that Kramer is going to move to California because Kramer will not be around to give George his spare keys when George needs them.

Correction: Most of the things that George and Kramer do make no sense. Why should this time be any different?

The Millennium - S8-E20

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, when Jerry one-ups Newman with the fact that the Newmannium party is being held incorrectly on New Year's 1999-2000 instead of correctly on New Year's 2000-2001, Jerry says, " Oh, that's interesting, because as everyone knows, since there was no year zero, The Millennium doesn't begin until the year two-thousand and one. Which would make your party, one year late, and thus, quite lame." The party is in fact one year early rather than one year late.

Correction: Newman booked the party to bring in the 2001 new year not the 2000 new year. He booked the restaurant for the millenium not thinking that 2001 was officially marked as the new millenium. However most people celebrated the new millenium as 2000. Even if Jerry's comments are wrong its simply a character mistake. Many had the same belief that 2001 was the actual millenium.

The Dealership - S9-E11

Corrected entry: George asks Jerry for change because he doesn't have any singles and wants a Twix bar from the candy machine. The candy bar sticks, the mechanic gets it, and George still has no singles and no candy. How then did he manage to get 10 Twix bars for his "Candy Line up" that he wants to show the manager?

Correction: He got change from The Dealership cashier when she got back from lunch.

Correction: Probably. It wouldn't be out of character for George to steal the magazine.

The Parking Garage - S3-E6

Corrected entry: On the Seinfeld season 3 DVD, there is a feature called notes about nothing where along the bottom of the screen it tells you little notes about what is going on. Well in this episode it said they used mirrors to make their "parking garage" look bigger because a real one would be too expensive. When Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer enter The Parking Garage, you can see their reflections in a mirror in the top left area of the screen.

Correction: Yes, but there are mirrors in the top corners of parking garages that are there to help you see around the corners. The Note is talking about whole walls of mirrors so that reflections of whole parts of the garage were repeated.

The Dog - S3-E4

Corrected entry: In the episode when Jerry looks after Farfel The Dog, George and Elaine are at the coffee shop, when they start making fun of Jerry. George asks Elaine if she's ever seen Jerry throw up, and she starts acting like she has seen him throw up. But she could not possibly have seen Jerry throw up because the last he did was June 29th 1980, years before Elaine and Jerry ever met.

Correction: It was mentioned in a later episode that Jerry threw up ten years later on June 29.

The Stakeout - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When, in the pilot episode, Jerry and Elaine are in the video shop, two women leave the shop. When they leave, you can see one of the women step down. That means, they are stepping off the set.

Correction: It is possible that there was a step leading to the door of the video store.

The Comeback - S8-E13

Corrected entry: George traveled to Tennessee to deliver The Comeback to Reilly. However,when he is driving away smarting from his second humiliation and a second comeback leaps to mind, while he is turning the car around, you can see by the road signs that he is not in Tennessee but actually in the New York area.

Correction: That's the point: George has flown back to New York, but has thought of yet another comeback. The joke is that he might be flying back AGAIN. Also, it's not Tennessee, it's Akron, Ohio.

The Dinner Party - S5-E13

Corrected entry: When George and Kramer go to the newsstand to get change for the $100 bill, the newsstand has multiple copies of Entertainment Weekly on the news racks. This wouldn't be a mistake if it had the same person(s) on the cover but each copy has a different person(s) on the cover. The show probably just grabbed whatever magazines they could find to take up space on the news rack.

Tobin OReilly

Correction: Not necessarily, sometimes magazines like that have multiple covers (sort of collectible covers); TV Guide often does that with multiple stars of a featured program.

Xofer

Correction: This isn't so unusual; a race like that would attract at least the local news, who would want to film the winner.

Xofer

The Pilot (2) - S4-E24

Corrected entry: Kramer walks into Jerry's apartment to get a Pepsi and tells Jerry that he would get Jerry's watch back (the one that Jerry threw away). Jerry then goes to Kramer's apartment door. When Kramer leaves Jerry's apartment, he has the Pepsi in his right hand. When Jerry tells Kramer that he had thrown away the watch, the Pepsi can is gone.

Correction: There was a promotion being run, for which you had to spot the Pepsi can in particular episodes and send in a postcard pointing out when you saw the Pepsi can.

The Label Maker - S6-E12

Corrected entry: In the episode where Jerry is going to the Superbowl, when he's going to sit down he says his seat is seat 4 and counts over to find his seat (and also to find Newman there). But the only empty seat in the row he's going down is the third seat. If his seat were the fourth, then Newman would have been sitting in his seat, so they both should be over one seat.

Correction: Not really a mistake. The tickets were a pair (seats 3 and 4), and Newman could have just been sitting in Jerry's seat, unsure who was taking the other ticket.

Ral0618

Correction: I know it gives this trivia on TBS Superstation, but if you'll look closely, it is not true. Often, Waffle Crisp is the first cereal in the row.

The Little Jerry - S8-E11

Corrected entry: Throughout the entire series, whenever Jerry calls out the window to Kramer, he calls UPWARD. Odd, since Kramer lives next door. This is especially obvious in this episode, when Jerry even says, "Kramer, I'm coming up. We got a cockfight to win."

Correction: While Kramer does live next door, Jerry calls up and out the window because Kramer is training Little Jerry on the roof.

The Doorman - S6-E18

Corrected entry: Jerry and Elaine are held liable for The Couch that was stolen from the lobby of Mr. Pitt's apartment building because Jerry, who agreed to cover for the building's doorman while he ran out to get a beer, left his post at Elaine's behest during which time The Couch was stolen. Since Jerry was not actually employed by the building, he was under no obligation to continue covering The Doorman's post and therefore could not legally be held liable for the theft.

Phaneron Premium member

Correction: And if he refused to do anything about The Couch and the company tried to sue him or press charges, the courts may rule he had no legal obligations (although they would argue Jerry took a legal obligation to watch the lobby when he signed for The Package). However, that's not what happened. Elaine says they're being held accountable for The Couch and instead of reimbursing them The Money or fighting it, they simply give away a pee-stained couch Jerry had already given to George and that George wanted to get rid of.

Bishop73

Correction: The key phrase is "in the next scene". Plenty of time has passed since we saw Jerry, in his apartment, with the bandage on. He had ample time and opportunity to take it off such that it's not a continuity mistake. George had come from wherever he was to meet them. The scene starts with them on the street, and Jerry is wearing a jacket that he wasn't wearing in his apartment.

The Dealership - S9-E11

Corrected entry: The mechanic got the last two twix bars. Assuming George finally got change from the cashier, where did the twix bars come from for the candy lineup? And further, why wouldn't George just eat the twix since he wanted one so badly?

Cinderdan

Correction: George presumably would have gotten the other Twix bars from a nearby store, off-screen. The reason why George didn't eat one of the Twix bars is simply all part of the joke - he was so determined and fixated on trying to catch out the mechanic that it simply did not occur to him that there were Twix bars there for him to eat. In fact, it is not until the plan had failed, where he then decides to have one if the Twix bars, only to find out there are none left.

Casual Person

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 Jimmy - S6-E19

Jimmy: Oh yeah, Jimmy's ready. Check Jimmy out. Jimmy's got some new moves. [Slips and falls from the water.] Jimmy's down.

Show generally

Question: During one episode, Jerry is dating a woman who's name he can't remember, but it rhymes with the name of a part of a woman's body. At the end he yells out the name to her down on the street. What is the name?

shortdanzr Premium member

Answer: The name is Delores. He shouts that name at the end of the episode. Then in a later episode, "The Foundation", he runs into her. And he repeatedly calls her Delores.
