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 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: Shot shows a DC-10. Next shot is the inside of a plane that is not a DC-10. Only one aisle. DC-10s have two aisles. (00:00:35)

The Library - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Bookman is lecturing Jerry in his apartment, he picks up a navy book with gold lettering and places it on the bookshelf in front of a pink book. For the rest of the shots, the navy book disappears and the pink book is back in front.

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.

The Stranded - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Jerry and George are at the pharmacy. As George pays the bill and is heading out, behind Jerry there's an old lady at the counter. The camera changes and the same lady disappears and you can see her in other side of the store heading again to the counter. (00:02:25)

The Letter - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: While George is talking to Nina about the painting, Jerry can be seen taking a bottle of water from the refrigerator. He's then seen holding the bottle when buzzing up Elaine, but then when talking to Nina about the "pop-in", the bottle's gone. It's then back in the next shot when Nina says she's leaving. (00:15:13 - 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?

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?
