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. From the reverse angle though, his left hand's still raised, then he lowers it again.

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The doctor is examining George. George yells into the stethoscope so he takes the buds off his ears. Not just that; he removes the instrument and puts it around his neck. George then freaks out and starts naming various odd and even rather harmless conditions; the doc is wearing the stethoscope again. Flirting with Elaine you can see the instrument sorta shuffles around, with part of it exposed and part of it under the scrubs' collar, now the left side, now the right side. When Jerry breaks off their idyll with the Romeo and Juliet reference, the stethoscope is back around his neck, only to be again in use when George asks "With a knife?" (00:08:00)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When the doctor tells George that he can have some ice cream, he touches his arm. Difference is, in the first shot the clipboard is in the right hand, in the close-up it's in the left hand. (00:09:20)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Elaine walks up to George in bed, and she asks him if anyone's got his apartment yet. For the brief part of dialogue about the zen lifestyle thing, the top sheet is rolled up in a noticeably different way from the rest of the scene. (00:07:00)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: On his deathbed George triumphantly utters "There's nothing wrong with me!"; the doctor cools his enthusiasm down though, saying that he wouldn't go that far. His hands are crossed in front of his body - at the cut though he's suddenly already browsing through George's medical file. (00:08:10)

The Burning - S9-E16

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 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?
