Seinfeld (1990)

6 corrected entries in season 3

(12 votes)

Correction: No mistake here. Maybe the lock was broken, or the door was propped open, or someone from the lobby let him in. There are countless plausible explanations as to how George got in the building.

Correction: If it has been a few days, it shouldn't strike anyone as unusual that he could be wearing the same outfit. It certainly could be that no items were changed during shooting, but it is believable as a real life situation.

Correction: I mostly wear the same outfit for 3 or 4 days.

Correction: This is wrong, but the corrections don't even say why. The blue shirt/green pants Jerry is wearing is NOT from the first attempt to see The Movie. The first time he's wearing a pinkish sweatshirt and blue jeans and he stays home. The second time is when he's wearing the outfit described and Elaine stays at Jerry's. The man with The Dog calls when Elaine is there and she tells him he better pick The Dog up that night. Which is he does and it's why Jerry is wearing the same thing.


The Keys - S3-E23

Corrected entry: Although it moves the plot along, it makes no sense for George to exchange spare keys with Kramer when he was told that Kramer is going to move to California because Kramer will not be around to give George his spare keys when George needs them.

Correction: Most of the things that George and Kramer do make no sense. Why should this time be any different?

The Parking Garage - S3-E6

Corrected entry: On the Seinfeld season 3 DVD, there is a feature called notes about nothing where along the bottom of the screen it tells you little notes about what is going on. Well in this episode it said they used mirrors to make their "parking garage" look bigger because a real one would be too expensive. When Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer enter The Parking Garage, you can see their reflections in a mirror in the top left area of the screen.

Correction: Yes, but there are mirrors in the top corners of parking garages that are there to help you see around the corners. The Note is talking about whole walls of mirrors so that reflections of whole parts of the garage were repeated.


The Dog - S3-E4

Corrected entry: In the episode when Jerry looks after Farfel The Dog, George and Elaine are at the coffee shop, when they start making fun of Jerry. George asks Elaine if she's ever seen Jerry throw up, and she starts acting like she has seen him throw up. But she could not possibly have seen Jerry throw up because the last he did was June 29th 1980, years before Elaine and Jerry ever met.

Correction: It was mentioned in a later episode that Jerry threw up ten years later on June 29.

In what episode does it ever mention he threw up 10 years later on June 29, 1990? In "The Masseuse" he mentions not throwing up since June 29, 1980 and he remembers the date because the previous time was June 29, 1972. The mistake is valid.


The Stranded - S3-E10

Corrected entry: Elaine says that she's a vegetarian while confronting a woman about her fur coat. In a previous episode, she says she wants to go to Skyburger and in a later episode, she eats a piece of meat Kramer gives her.

Correction: So Elaine lied about being a vegetarian. It wouldn't be the only time she lied about something.

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 Robbery - S1-E2

Trivia: Michael Richards invented his patented Kramer entrance in this episode on accident. He missed his cue and thought he would make up for lost time.

The Suicide - S3-E15

Question: When George and Elaine go to see the psychic, the psychic tells George that she sees a Pauline. George gasps and says that his brother once impregnated a woman named Pauline. Since when does George have a brother? Was this brother shown or mentioned in any other episode?

Chosen answer: George does mention his brother in the episode "The Parking Space". They actually really never mention anything that contradicts the fact he had a brother though, it just isn't mentioned.
