The Chinese Restaurant - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Jerry is explaining to Elaine what to do for eggroll dare. She listens and uncrosses her arms. When he says the words "I'll give you 50 bucks" there's a cut, and Elaine's arms are again folded. It happens again right after when Jerry says she'll give the people at the table a story to tell.

Chosen answer: George does mention his brother in the episode "The Parking Space". They actually really never mention anything that contradicts the fact he had a brother though, it just isn't mentioned.
