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 Voice - S9-E2

Factual error: With the size of that red ball (approximately 2.5 foot diameter) and the density of oil (approximately 60 lb/ft^3), the giant ball of oil would weigh 491 pounds. This would be impossible for Kramer and Darren to lift out of the window and would definitely kill anyone it beaned.

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 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.

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know the back-story of the bass guitar licks used during the episodes?

Answer: Composer Jonathan Wolff used a synthesizer, although in seasons 7-9, a real bass is used in addition. Wolff also recorded himself making hundreds of mouth noises, pops, and slaps to add to the synthesized bass licks so that each episode has a different theme. The only real "back-story" is Jerry Seinfeld was having trouble coming up with a theme song and talked to a friend who happened to know Wolff. They wanted to avoid that cheesy late 80's sit-com theme song and Wolff came up with what we enjoy now. Jonathan Wolff has also talked about this further in interviews, recently Reed Dunela interviewed him, so for a fuller account of his story; check out "The Wolff of 116th street".
