The Robbery - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Jerry is being grumpy on The Couch with his friends for giving up The Apartment, arms crossed. Notice his right sleeve, down till the wrist. When Carol enters the room with her husband for the first time, Jerry is still with his arms crossed but the sleeve is up, mid-length. (00:20:35)

The Robbery - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: During the initial conversation when the camera is on Elaine there's a chair prominently featured in the background, with a jacket on the back. The chair turns around between shots - in particular, when Jerry proudly proclaims himself "Master Packer" it is positioned at the desk instead of facing towards the camera. (00:01:10)

The Robbery - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: George is chatting with Elaine as he is waiting for Jerry. Elaine splits an Oreo cookie. When he mentions her "price range", she is not seen fully but her left hand is in frame and she brings it up. When George turns around to address Jerry though, it's her right hand to be raised.

The Stakeout - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Jerry and his mom are playing Scrabble; when she is picking the non-existent word, Jerry says that he's "nervous." Look at The Note between his hands. At the cut, the paper is in a different position and orientation. (00:17:45)

The Stakeout - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jerry is making the "Lo Mein" joke inside the video store, he is waving his hands around. The hands are out of frame; still his right hand pops in view twice showing he is holding a tape - but he is holding none before and after and he positioned himself away from the shelf. (00:01:35)

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.
