The Note - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, when Jerry is having a massage, his hands are in front of him, under his chin. The position of his fingers change considerably after the masseuse says, "I don't know" but then return to the original position in the next shot.

The Dog - S3-E4

Character mistake: When George and Elaine go to the coffee shop after the movie without Jerry, they establish that Elaine moved to NYC in 1986. Then they make fun of the way that Jerry throws up; both imitating Jerry. The "Dinner Party" episode is after the "The Dog". In the "Dinner Party" episode, Jerry brags that he hasn't thrown up since June 29th, 1980. The black and white cookie ended this streak. Elaine would not have been around to see this,… not arriving in NYC until 1986.

The Red Dot - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: After Elaine unwraps her cashmere sweater, Kramer wraps the ribbon around his neck in a scarf-like way and then lies back on the couch. In a long shot of the apartment (as Elaine exits the bathroom), the ribbon is gone, but when it cuts to Kramer and he asks about the red dot (and for the rest of the scene), the ribbon is back.

The Note - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: While Jerry is having his massage, the masseuse walks around the table to reach his right side and we can then see two items of clothing, one blue and one grey, hanging on the clothes stand behind them. During the rest of the scene, we only ever see the grey item hanging there.

The Truth - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Jerry is waiting for George to come into his apartment and he says to Elaine and Kramer, "my oldest friend is dating the governor", and then folds his arms. In the next shot, as George comes in, Jerry is suddenly holding a glass of juice - there was no time for this change to happen naturally.

The Dog - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: A couple of times while George and Elaine are in the restaurant laughing about Jerry, the piece of napkin George has been playing with disappears and reappears on the table.

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 Alternate Side - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: While Kramer is explaining about being in the Woody Allen movie, George is in the background looking out the window trying to stop car alarms with his keys. Less then five seconds later, George ends up by Jerry's counter (without being seen) and has a can of Shasta in his hand.

The Fix-Up - S3-E16

Character mistake: George calls Jerry to tell him about sex with Cynthia. He starts by saying he just got home, which Jerry repeats. A few lines later, George confirms they had sex at his own apartment. Why would he be getting home from his own apartment?

The Pen - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: While Jack is leaving the apartment after giving Jerry the pen, you can see they have put a fake background outside the front door. What's more it is not even that realistic. It looks like a forest with a river in the middle. The Seinfeld's Florida apartment is situated amongst many other apartments around it.

Lummie

The Parking Garage - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: In the first scene (approximately 3 minutes in) where Jerry points out the red-headed woman in the parking garage to George, she is leaving her vehicle in a section of the garage that is labeled 14 with a green background. However, later (approximately 23 minutes in) she is shown returning to her car in section 14, but the color is now yellow.
