The Pony Remark - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: During their casual talk about death and wasting your own life, George says he plans to continue wasting it. Cut, and both him and Elaine are in different poses than earlier, with Elaine licking the spoon and George with his fingertips by his mouth. In the majority of the conversation there are no such jumpcuts and continuity is kept. (00:14:45)

Continuity mistake: At the family dinner, Jerry's mom mentions horses for the first time. Reaction shot on the old lady saying "yeah, yeah", and cut to a wider angle; she is now all of a sudden leaning on her right arm. (00:06:50)

The Ex-Girlfriend - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the very first shot of Jerry's conversation with George's ex, behind the pile of books you can spot a big lemon slice on the rim of the glass. The slice is then gone from that spot (it's inside the glass now, submerged by the drink), but between shots it is back on and then off again. (00:08:00)

The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene which starts with Jerry saying he has never seen an episode of I Love Lucy in his life, two wine glasses switch sides. The one with wine in it is on the left side of the screen, then 5 seconds later it is on the right side. Jerry also takes the cork out of the wine bottle and then in the next shot it is back on, only for the next shot for it to be off again. (00:11:45)


The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When the doctor tells George that he can have some ice cream, he touches his arm. Difference is, in the first shot the clipboard is in the right hand, in the close-up it's in the left hand. (00:09:20)

The Revenge - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: During Elaine's amazingly off-putting flirting with George's boss, she starts mentioning how people don't say "Bless you" as they used to. She is gesturing with her right hand pointing a thumb -but before her "Have you noticed that?" is over, she is already in a new shot with hands joined and fingers entwined. (00:16:00)

The Hot Tub - S7-E5

Plot hole: When Elaine is searching for Jean Paul in the streets, one of her verbal flashbacks is of Jean Paul saying, "I trust Elaine, she is my friend." However, Jean Paul made this remark to Jerry, and Elaine was not there to hear it. How could she have a flashback of it?
