The Hot Tub - S7-E5

Deliberate mistake: When Elaine comes home and doesn't find Sean Paul there, she runs to her neighbour across the apartment. The neighbour opens the door and stands outside it then the door slowly closes behind him. Suddenly, the door opens again with a swoosh without anyone being there. Because the camera switches angle right after this, it is apparent it was opened to gain this shot or to at least permit it continuity wise. (00:16:40 - 00:17:10)

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: Jerry's apartment is on the fifth floor of his building, yet any time he buzzes somebody in from outside the building, they enter his apartment in a matter of seconds.

The Airport - S4-E12

Deliberate mistake: In this episode Elaine angers the bag man and he puts her bag on a plane to Honolulu. When Jerry and Elaine arrive in New York and are waiting for their bags, it cuts to the "Hawaii" airport and shows Elaine's bag coming out to the baggage claim belt. This was a deliberate mistake as there is no way Elaine's bag could have gotten to Hawaii at the same time Jerry and Elaine are waiting for their bags in New York, since they only left from Missouri.

The Comeback - S8-E13

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.
