Seinfeld

The Mom & Pop Store - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: Right after Jon Voight enters the taxi, Kramer sticks his arm in through the cab's rear side window, where Jon Voight was sitting. Jon Voight grabs the arm and bites Kramer on the wrist. As Kramer later was describing the incident to Jerry and George, he was pointing to a bite mark near his elbow.

The Engagement - S7-E1

Factual error: At the end of the episode in which George and Susan get engaged, they are lying in bed together watching "Mad About You" on TV. However, at some earlier point on "Mad About You" it had been established in a crossover episode that Paul Reiser was the person who lived in Jerry's apartment before him and was an old acquaintence of Kramer's, meaning that "Seinfeld" and "Mad About You" existed in the same reality. On "Seinfeld," the show "Mad About You" could not exist.

The Fatigues - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, Cynthia is drinking a glass of wine. While speaking near the end of the scene, she is holding the glass in her right hand and says, "You know, guides you in your career path." The next shot is of Jerry and instantly the glass has disappeared from her hand with her right hand resting on the table. You can also see the glass is closer to her left hand now.

The Seven - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: When George is at Susan's cousins' house complaining about them stealing the name Seven, its bright Daylight out. You can tell because the sun is pouring in through the windows. The woman goes into labor and they all get into the car to go to the hospital. At this point it is nighttime. When they finally arrive at the hospital it is broad daylight again.

The Shower Head - S7-E16

Revealing mistake: When Kramer is getting slammed with his new super-powered shower head at the very end of the episode, it's blatantly obvious that the water is barely touching him - he's standing right next to it.

The Little Jerry - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: When Celia breaks out of prison and comes to George's apartment, George opens the door and starts talking with her. After George says "And you decided to pop in" the shot shows Celia but the door has now closed behind her. It would have been impossible to close without us seeing it because Celia would have had to have moved forward to close the door.

The Boyfriend (1) - S3-E17

Factual error: Newman says that the "Magic Loogie" incident happened on June 14, 1987, when the New York Mets lost to the Philadelphia Phillies due to an error by Mets first baseman Keith Hernandez. However, the Mets played the Pittsburgh Pirates on that date, and the Mets won 7-3.

The Cartoon - S9-E13

Continuity mistake: After George and Janet leave The Apartment, Jerry gets mad at Kramer for saying Janet looked like him. He shoves Kramer and the bottom half of the freezer door swings open. The next few shots show Jerry and Kramer from the chest up, but when a wide view shot is shown again, the freezer door is closed. It does not appear Jerry shut the door.

The Chicken Roaster - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: Due to the effect of the red glow on Kramer's eyes, he confuses the pitcher of tomato juice from Jerry's refrigerator for a pitcher of milk, pours it into the cereal, then gags and promptly tosses the contents of the bowl into the trash beside the fridge. In the close-up he tries to wipe some of it off the wall, but there's still a huge red mess left on the wall, in the trash, etc. In the next wide shot of Jerry and Kramer, the trash and wall are spotless.

The Soul Mate - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: George has constructed a model of the boardroom when his briefcase was destroyed. Jerry thinks George should be represented by the Yellow M&M figure. When the camera shows a close up of the figure, Jerry is holding it in a different position than the far away shots.

The Calzone - S7-E20

Factual error: When Jerry gets a speeding ticket, he asks Nicki to give the officer the registration. She gets a large piece of white paper from the glove compartment. That's what car registrations look like in California, where the show was produced. In New York, where it's supposed to take place, car registrations are the size of a driver's license, and are usually kept in the driver's wallet.

The Handicap Spot - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When they initially pull into the handicapped parking space, George is driving a large yellow Cadillac. When they return to see the car destroyed, it is now a much smaller blue car.

The Wife - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Courtney Cox, when she and Jerry are arguing over a can opener, a bottle of beer keeps changing positions whenever they cut back to Jerry.

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.
