The Foundation - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: While Jerry calls George from the coffee shop to tell him about the survey question, there is a shot of the waitresses and staff sitting at the tables. Behind them you can see the booths the gang usually sits at and there is a wall right next to the booth with pictures and pipes. Only problem is there are always booths next to the two near the front entrance. Even in this episode you can see the other booths as there are menus, condiments and napkins at the booths next to the regular booths.

The Soul Mate - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When George is in the boardroom, he places his briefcase on the conference table, and opens it, with the top leaning against a carafe. As George yammers on, the briefcase is closed in a couple of shots, and then open again for the rest of the scene.

The Soul Mate - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: George has constructed a model of the boardroom when his briefcase was destroyed. Jerry thinks George should be represented by the Yellow M&M figure. When the camera shows a close up of the figure, Jerry is holding it in a different position than the far away shots.

The Little Kicks - S8-E4

Factual error: In the scene where Anna is standing with George beside his father's GTO, Elaine suddenly runs in and pries her away from George. Elaine and Anna get into the cab. As the cab pulls away, the side door is marked as an NYC cab with a taxi license number, etc., but the license plate in the back is a California plate.

Suggested correction: We could easy chalk this up to George simply being wrong, which he likely is, given that he doesn't usually drive the car or try to act like a badass, and he's just faking for a woman.

The Fatigues - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Frank breaks open an egg in the close-up of the pan, we see there are more than half a dozen eggs in the carton. However, in a wideshot of the kitchen, the carton appears to have only about three eggs. (00:16:15)

The Fatigues - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, Cynthia is drinking a glass of wine. While speaking near the end of the scene, she is holding the glass in her right hand and says, "You know, guides you in your career path." The next shot is of Jerry and instantly the glass has disappeared from her hand with her right hand resting on the table. You can also see the glass is closer to her left hand now.

The Chicken Roaster - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: When Kramer spills the tomato juice all over Jerry's walls, he grabs a light colored oven mitt to wipe it off. In one shot he wrings out the sopping mitt over the juice pitcher. When the shot changes and he tosses the mitt back onto the counter, the mitt is still the original color with no hint of red stains.

The Chicken Roaster - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: Due to the effect of the red glow on Kramer's eyes, he confuses the pitcher of tomato juice from Jerry's refrigerator for a pitcher of milk, pours it into the cereal, then gags and promptly tosses the contents of the bowl into the trash beside the fridge. In the close-up he tries to wipe some of it off the wall, but there's still a huge red mess left on the wall, in the trash, etc. In the next wide shot of Jerry and Kramer, the trash and wall are spotless.

The Abstinence - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: In one scene George is solving a Rubik's cube in Jerry's apartment. When he leaves, he places the cube on Jerry's kitchen counter, and it is in the middle of the counter with the red color facing out. In the very next shot, it is moved much closer to the far edge of the counter and the color facing out has changed.

The Abstinence - S8-E9

Revealing mistake: When Kramer and his lawyer, Jackie, are in the taxi; when Jackie says "who told you to have a pow wow", a man is seen walking across the rear window. The taxi is supposed to be moving, but the man's position stays the same (the taxi should be pulling away from him). The actual traffic filmed for the green screen doesn't seem to react to a man jaywalking in front of them either, as it was someone walking across the set.

The Abstinence - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: After George and Jerry discuss the fact that George will never have sex again, they stand up to leave the coffee shop and George places a large book under his arm. In the very next shot, he is holding the book in both his hands.

JAGwire

The Andrea Doria - S8-E10

Other mistake: The tenant board member tells George that Mr. Eldrige in apartment 8C has decided he wants the new apartment. However, the new apartment in question has a 3-digit number - 808 I believe. This indicates that the building would not have single digit numbers and letters (Such as 5E, 8C, etc.) as part of its numbering system.

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.

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?

Dandude776 1

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.
