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?

The Calzone - S7-E20

Continuity mistake: This mistake is in The Calzone episode. Towards the end when George walks in and his boss is looking around for the smell of calzones, George is holding a bag in his hand. In the next shot that shows the back of the boss's head the bag is now on top of a box that George is carrying. When it goes back to a close up the bag is in his hand again.

The Rye - S7-E11

Plot hole: When George and Jerry are discussing The Rye bread scheme, George says Susan is working late that night, so she won't be around when he sneaks The Rye into the house. But when George reels The Rye in with the fishing pole, Susan is standing there with her parents, wearing her coat. When did she get home? She couldn't have entered through the front door, because Jerry was there tossing The Rye up to George. And since it's a New York City brownstone, there's no backdoor that's accessible. There's no logical explanation for her getting into the house to see George reeling in The Rye.

The Hot Tub - S7-E5

Deliberate mistake: When Elaine comes home and doesn't find Sean Paul there, she runs to her neighbour across The Apartment. The neighbour opens the door and stands outside it then the door slowly closes behind him. Suddenly, the door opens again with a swoosh without anyone being there. Because the camera switches angle right after this, it is apparent it was opened to gain this shot or to at least permit it continuity wise. (00:16:40 - 00:17:10)

The Seven - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Elaine and Kramer are in Newman's apartment to debate who gets the bike, the first shot of Newman shows he inadvertently left his wedding ring on. The shot switches away and then back to Newman and his wedding ring disappears.

The Wait Out - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: The scene which George arrives at Beth's apartment in a messy condition to admit his remark was in jest, his shirt's hem and collar change between shots. During this scene, especially when he talks to Jerry on the phone, his collar is up and down; his hem is in and out of his trousers.

The Engagement - S7-E1

Factual error: At the end of the episode in which George and Susan get engaged, they are lying in bed together watching "Mad About You" on TV. However, at some earlier point on "Mad About You" it had been established in a crossover episode that Paul Reiser was the person who lived in Jerry's apartment before him and was an old acquaintence of Kramer's, meaning that "Seinfeld" and "Mad About You" existed in the same reality. On "Seinfeld," the show "Mad About You" could not exist.

The Seven - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: When George is at Susan's cousins' house complaining about them stealing the name Seven, its bright Daylight out. You can tell because the sun is pouring in through the windows. The woman goes into labor and they all get into the car to go to the hospital. At this point it is nighttime. When they finally arrive at the hospital it is broad daylight again.

The Shower Head - S7-E16

Revealing mistake: When Kramer is getting slammed with his new super-powered shower head at the very end of the episode, it's blatantly obvious that the water is barely touching him - he's standing right next to it.

The Calzone - S7-E20

Factual error: When Jerry gets a speeding ticket, he asks Nicki to give the officer the registration. She gets a large piece of white paper from the glove compartment. That's what car registrations look like in California, where the show was produced. In New York, where it's supposed to take place, car registrations are the size of a driver's license, and are usually kept in the driver's wallet.

The Calzone - S7-E20

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Elaine questions her boyfriend in front of her apartment, look carefully at the end of the conversation. When her boyfriend turns and walks away, you can see where the green screen ends, with the crew members/cameras standing on the set. (00:09:25)

The Soup Nazi - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: In the start of the scene when Kramer tells Elaine that the armoire got stolen. When Elaine walks in from the right side she walks right past the armoire, and it still has the two blue straps on it so it's the same one. The gaffe seems to have been edited out in some versions. (00:09:50)

The Friars Club - S7-E18

Plot hole: In the episode where Kramer decides to start sleeping like a Seal, he's with a girl. He falls asleep on top of her and she seems to think that he's dead. While breathing, your chest expands in such a way that if somebody were laying on top of you, there is no conceivable way that you could think that they are dead.

The Jimmy - S6-E19

Jimmy: Oh yeah, Jimmy's ready. Check Jimmy out. Jimmy's got some new moves. [Slips and falls from the water.] Jimmy's down.

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.

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.
