The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Jerry's sitting with George in the hospital talking about George's jacket, as Jerry says "no, I tried it on, it fits good", he's gesturing with his left hand, which he then puts in his lap. From the reverse angle though, his left hand's still raised, then he lowers it again.

The Busboy - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode Elaine, George, and Jerry are sitting in the coffee shop and the ketchup moves from inside by Jerry to the outside of the table when Elaine's to-go order is put on the table.

The Deal - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jerry is first telling George about him and Elaine, George's plate of food changes drastically from shot to shot.

The Ex-Girlfriend - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: After the scene in which Elaine tells Jerry about her confrontation with the "head-nodding" man, and before the scene where George swallows a fly, the scene cuts to a shot of the exterior of Monk's café. The actual, real-life restaurant used for exterior purposes is named "Tom's Restaurant," and the "m's" in "Tom's" can be seen during this five-second shot. (00:23:00)

The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Jerry says he has never seen an episode of I Love Lucy in his life, then pops the cork on the wine bottle. Then it cuts to the lady and she asks, "Is there anything else about you I should know?" and the wine bottle is still on the table, corked. Then it cuts back to Jerry, and the bottle is still in his hand uncorked. (00:11:40)

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.

The Chinese Restaurant - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: After the 4 people bypass Jerry and Elaine, George is trying to get the attention of the man at the phone, who just turns the other way. George angrily licks his lip and leans against the corner. Cut to Jerry, and in the background George is repeating the action of leaning, in a different way from before. (00:03:50)

The Baby Shower - S2-E10

Other mistake: The previous episode "The Deal", was supposed to be the season (and possibly series) finale, however it was aired out of order. Therefore in this episode and the next without explanation Jerry and Elaine are not romantically involved anymore, and Kramer pitches cable to Jerry as if he never had it before, mentioning "The naked channel" that was sorta the triggering factor of "The Deal" 's plot.

The Baby Shower - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When the cable guy tells Jerry it'll cost him 400 bucks, he is holding the plate with the cake in his right hand, but in the following shot the left hand is holding just the fork. (00:19:10)

The Baby Shower - S2-E10

Other mistake: When George is taking off his sweater revealing the chocolate-smeared shirt, a woman in the background hilariously stares, looks down at the shirt and then eyerolls. She is behind him, though, and can't possibly have seen the stain. The shirt looks fine from the other angles. (00:16:30)

The Baby Shower - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Kramer tries to stop Jerry from running towards the door. "Agent Stone" in the following shot has his badge in the left hand (was in the right earlier) and reaches with the right for his gun under The Jacket.

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)
