The Slicer - S9-E7

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 Baby Shower - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: In the sequence when he gets shot by the FBI agents for stealing cable, Jerry Seinfeld is wearing ear buds, quite visible when he collapses by the door. Evidently the stage props even loaded with blanks were too loud for his taste. (00:09:00)

The Puffy Shirt - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When the man from the hand modeling agency is talking to George about Ray, he lifts up his right arm to make a claw with his hand, and as he does so he has his left arm holding up his right. After a cut, the man's left arm is suddenly hanging down, no longer supporting the other arm. (00:16:05)

The Money - S8-E12

Continuity mistake: The exterior of the video store in the episode looks different from the interior. From the inside, we see a neon "open" sign on the window and other writing, and also no exit sign on the door, all of which is contrary to the outside view of the store. (00:09:25)

The Dealership - S9-E11

The man at the window has his arms in a higher position in the second shot (plus his facial expression is changed), the woman no longer has her hand up on the wall, and George's left hand is suddenly resting on the table.

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?

Answer: Composer Jonathan Wolff used a synthesizer, although in seasons 7-9, a real bass is used in addition. Wolff also recorded himself making hundreds of mouth noises, pops, and slaps to add to the synthesized bass licks so that each episode has a different theme. The only real "back-story" is Jerry Seinfeld was having trouble coming up with a theme song and talked to a friend who happened to know Wolff. They wanted to avoid that cheesy late 80's sit-com theme song and Wolff came up with what we enjoy now. Jonathan Wolff has also talked about this further in interviews, recently Reed Dunela interviewed him, so for a fuller account of his story; check out "The Wolff of 116th street".
