The Pitch - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: In this episode, George asks Russell if his last name contains a "y" and Russel answers that it doesn't. However, Russel is credited in this and subsequent episodes as "Russell Dalrymple."

Suggested correction: He was being curt with George and said "no" on purpose to drop the subject of how is last name is spelt. When George spelled his name, he was pretty close to spelling it correctly and Russell said"not even close", which we know isn't true.


The Outing - S4-E17

Factual error: Kramer gives Jerry a two-line phone for his birthday, which Jerry plugs in and immediately uses. But a two-line phone requires the installation of an actual additional phone line. What Jerry was using when the NYU reporter overheard him "admitting" he was gay was simply call-waiting.

The Handicap Spot - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When they initially pull into the handicapped parking space, George is driving a large yellow Cadillac. When they return to see the car destroyed, it is now a much smaller blue car.

The Junior Mint - S4-E20

Audio problem: As the doctor is explaining how he thinks there were other factors at play to stave off the infection, when he says "something perhaps..." his mouth/lips do not move.


The Airport - S4-E12

Factual error: In the episode where Jerry is upgraded to first class while Elaine struggles in coach, the scene changes to show a plane flying with the colors of Southwest Airlines, and you can make out the name "Southwest" written on the tail if you pause as it's landing. Anyone who has flown them knows that there is no first class on Southwest.

The Implant - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: After George puts a couple of the snacks in his mouth, he takes a bite of the next one before Father Jessup says George is great comfort. In the next shot, the snack George is whole and no longer has a bite taken out of it.


The Pick - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Jerry is eating cereal and reading the paper. He puts down his spoon to turn the page. The page is still in his hand when the shot changes and now he's back to holding hod spoon.

The Trip (1) - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: While discussing Candice Bergen with Jerry, George picks up a menu and places it on the table; both he and Jerry have a menu. In the next shot showing the table (when George says, "I can't believe I missed Kramer,") both menus are flipped: in the first shot, white pages are facing up, and a yellow page is on the back of George's menu as he picks it up; in the second, the yellow sides are facing up. (00:01:02)


The Old Man - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: After The Old Man's dentures are destroyed in the garbage disposal, he shouts that his dentist is "downtown." There is sibilance audible in his production of the T sound (after the stop release). Sibilance is high frequency noise cause by turbulent airflow directed at the front teeth vibrating randomly in a small space; if he had no front teeth, there should be no sibilance. (00:14:35)


The Implant - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: During the wake for Betsy's aunt, George puts snacks on his plate while talking to the reverend. He puts at least 6 pieces on his plate while the next shot of his plate shows only 2. (00:14:15)

Trivia: No matter who the characters in Seinfeld call, they never have to look up the phone number in the phone book. They have the phone numbers to every restaurant, hotel, and business memorised.
