The Soul Mate - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When George is in the boardroom, he places his briefcase on the conference table, and opens it, with the top leaning against a carafe. As George yammers on, the briefcase is closed in a couple of shots, and then open again for the rest of the scene.

The Junk Mail - S9-E5

Continuity mistake: When Elaine and her new boyfriend are eating in the restaurant, her bangs are to the side. The shot goes to a close-up of her boyfriend, in the next shot her bangs are across her forehead. Then in the next close-up of her face, her bangs are back to the side.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The exterior shot they use when establishing Monk's cafe is completely different than what is inside in The Cafe. First the outside has neon lights with just RESTAURANT. The inside of The Cafe, the menus, windows and door all have Monk's cafe logo on them. Secondly the door should be in the middle of the restaurant, instead the interior shows it to be to the left of the restaurant and somewhat to the side. Lastly the windows in the exterior shot are extremely large with no writing, logo and curtains pulled to the side. Inside The Cafe, the windows are much smaller, with permanent curtains coming halfway up the windows and the rest being blocked by Monk's cafe logo.

The Outing - S4-E17

Factual error: Kramer gives Jerry a two-line phone for his birthday, which Jerry plugs in and immediately uses. But a two-line phone requires the installation of an actual additional phone line. What Jerry was using when the NYU reporter overheard him "admitting" he was gay was simply call-waiting.

The Seven - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Elaine and Kramer are in Newman's apartment to debate who gets the bike, the first shot of Newman shows he inadvertently left his wedding ring on. The shot switches away and then back to Newman and his wedding ring disappears.

The Library - S3-E5

Character mistake: When Marion mentions Mr Bookman she says he'd been on the job for 25 years. Yet later on he tells Jerry he's been on the job since 1971, which in 1991 makes it 20 years.

The Letter - S3-E21

Character mistake: When Lippman is recounting his conversation with his accountant, he mentions that the accountant, a man, gave the tickets to "her daughter."

The Wait Out - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: The scene which George arrives at Beth's apartment in a messy condition to admit his remark was in jest, his shirt's hem and collar change between shots. During this scene, especially when he talks to Jerry on the phone, his collar is up and down; his hem is in and out of his trousers.

The Understudy - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Bette Midler, she is injured when George tackles her at home plate. When he hits her, she is knocked into somebody. When they show her again, she is sprawled against the backstop with no one behind or even near her that seems to be hurt. George also misses home plate.

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.

Trivia: No matter who the characters in Seinfeld call, they never have to look up the phone number in the phone book. They have the phone numbers to every restaurant, hotel, and business memorised.

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.
