The Lip Reader - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Kramer becomes a ball-man, the episode ends with them at a tennis match. It shows a shot of the court, and no one is standing anywhere near the poles of the net. In the next shot, Kramer is crouched down next to the pole, ready to dive for the ball.

The Wife - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Courtney Cox, when she and Jerry are arguing over a can opener, a bottle of beer keeps changing positions whenever they cut back to Jerry.

The Pie - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When George goes into the suit shop after being told about the sale, he sees another man trying on the suit. George tells the man the sale is on Monday and the man takes off the suit coat and George is holding it in his hands when the saleswoman says the sale is on Friday. In the next shot, she has the coat and is hanging it despite never taking it from George.


The Fire - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: When Jerry opens the magazine to the article about him before handing it to George, the left side is mostly black with a picture and the right side is half black with "now" in big yellow letters. In the next shot of him handing the magazine to George, the page seen is mostly white with fine print and a small picture. In the next shots of George reading it, the magazine is back to where Jerry had opened it up to the first time.


The Glasses - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When George bites into the onion, you can see the top of the onion is facing up or towards the camera, next to his finger. In the next shot, you can tell the onion has rotated position. You can see the root is to the side, so the top would be on the side instead of up.
